The Statfold Barn Enthusiast and Photography Days. have become overtime, an important event in the Narrow-gauge Calendar. The opportunity to see at close quarters the locos and rolling stock, the Engineering Shop that not only helps keep the Statfold Barn Railway on the ‘rails’, but other heritage lines too, is just too good to miss. On September the 8th this year will be one of the biggest events in the ever increasing Statfold annual programme. Not only will the Railway be running an extensive all day schedule but there will be more traction engines on site than in previous years. Vintage cars, Land Rovers, Motorbikes will all be on show along with various North American trucks. A steam saw mill will be working, demonstrating the way timber was milled years ago. Inside the Museum Hall there will be stalls selling railway memorabilia and books. Representatives from other Heritage lines as well as Railway modellers will be present to enlighten our visitors as to what is happening in the wider world of modelling, railway preservation and transport in general over the years. http://www.statfoldbarnrailway.co.uk

The organisers are gearing up for this year’s event to be the biggest yet with over 700 vintage vehicle exhibits expected to make the annual pilgrimage to the show field.  Exhibits include a large selection of steam engines, vintage commercial vehicles, cars, tractors, bikes, stationary engines, motoring and agricultural displays.  Attractions will also include craft stalls, autojumble and many diverse trade stalls.  The Sunday will see a vintage ploughing match and a local Produce Show.  There really is something for all the family. The weekend will feature an action packed main arena with displays to appeal to all ages and backgrounds.  Numerous catering outlets and the opportunity for a ‘proper Sunday dinner’ in the catering tent will tend to everyone’s requirements along with a fully licensed bar serving locally brewed ale and much more. Organised by an entirely volunteer committee the HSG Team have donated thousands of pounds to local charities over the years from event proceeds and rely on the support of the local Bedale Explorer Scouts to assist with car parking duties.  The young and enthusiastic Team hope to continue to raise money for local charities and invite you to come along and enjoy an action packed weekend […]
