Statfold Barn Railway 6/8

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

On 19th.September we joined with two friends and enjoyed a day out at the Statfold Barn Railway near Tamworth in Staffordshire.  It is an entirely private railway, built on a farm, and they hold 3 Enthusiasts Days each year when their own, and guest locomotives, run a steady number of trains over the three mile circular route across the fields.  This series runs until tomorrow and you can find more details about the railway at http://www.statfoldbarnrailway.co.uk/

This loco is Pakis Baru O&K No.1 returning from taking a group of passengers for a ride out in to the country.  The route is laid out in the form of a big loop so each loco and train is effectively reversed each time it goes out.

I have now opened a blog on Flickr with images that have appeared on SC and others that haven't and will not.  You can find me here

See the passengers all look form a generation or two back.
Too bad, kids should love these things
Brian Walbey: There was quite a lot of children there Rob, but with the freedom of movement they needed to be kept safely under parental control.

Lovely stuff Brian: I wonder which country this loco came from?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. It came from the Pakis Baru sugar mill in Central Java, Indonesia so Google tells me. A long way from home and definitely well looked after.

Looks all very well cared-for, Brian. I like how you've got one of the loco crew visible through the spectacle glass.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I must be honest and say I hadn't noticed that chap at all.
You get quite a long journey on it. Lovely place to go on a sunny day.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Linda, it was a lovely September day.
Is this the 'little engine that could', Brian?
Brian Walbey: Might well be Beverly smile
I bet the kids love going on this. Nice shot Brian
Brian Walbey: There was a lot of children there Janet, no doubt they had a good time.
This looks fun Brian..did you get a go on it?
Brian Walbey: We had a ride on the train Ron, I can't remember which loco pulled us though.

Brian Walbey: Many thanks Derek, the whole lot of the locos were great little things.
