Statfold Barn Farm, located close to Tamworth in Staffordshire, is the home to the Statfold Barn Railway which, under the guidance of owners Graham & Carol Lee over the last fifteen years, has grown to become what must be the most significant collection of narrow gauge locomotives in the UK. With over 30 steam locomotives and many internal combustion locomotives, representing most British and several overseas manufacturers.

With the establishment of the STATFOLD NARROW GAUGE MUSEUM TRUST LTD, the future of this unique collection is ensured beyond the lifetime of its owners.

From time to time Statfold’s own locomotives are joined by a visitor from other heritage railways or private collections. Visits by locomotives from the Statfold collection are also an established feature of special events at various heritage railways around Britain, including Amerton. Ffestiniog, Penrhyn, Threlkeld, Welsh Highland and West Lancashire lines.
