Last year we had our tremendously successful summer festival of industrial steam. For 2016 we are pleased to share with you our "Off the beaten track tour 2016" . A series of events at railways not normally on the photographers radar but with a real charm of their own and also lines we are making our first trip too . Number 1 is our trip to the Mid Suffolk Light Railway and now we can share Number 2 at the wonderful Amerton Railway

Amerton Railway

Sunday 13th March 2016

With thanks to all involved at the Amerton Railway I am really pleased to present a day on this line in Staffordshire. This lovely line at Amerton Farm , Stowe By Chartley near Stafford was built on a green field site starting in 1990 to provide a home for the Stafford built Isabel. The line is now home to the former Leek & Manifold Railway signal box from Waterhouses and Great Northern Railway platform shelter from Stowe by Chartley. There is an excellent detailed history of the line on the Amerton Railway website

For our day We will use Isabel (Bagnall w/n1491 1897) seen above  and New Build Kerr Stuart Wren class Jennie on the lines varied goods sets including tipplers , box vans and flat bed wagons . The line runs around a circuit on the field with lots of rather nice narrow gauge cameos available 

We will commence our day around 9am with loco preparation and aim to finish around 4pm. Cost is a very reasonable £40 and hopefully a Sunday means no holiday worries in what has become quite a congested spring charter season. As always places can be reserved via e-mail .
