2013 marks the 120th anniversary since the building of the Foxfield Railway line.
Enoch Mann, a local colliery owner built the line to carry coal from the colliery at Dilhorne to Blythe Bridge. Instead of taking the more direct route he diverted the line over the moors away from the his house.
From this we are extremly thankful that the line boldly crosses open moorland, hills and woods which results in spectacular sights and sounds as trains climb some of the steepest gradients to be found on any standard gauge railway in the UK.
Thank you Enoch, you have left Staffordshire with a beautiful treasure!
From this our unique Steam Railway nestles in the heart of Staffordshire at Blythe Bridge. You can travel on our wonderful steam hauled trains through the glorious countryside to Dilhorne Park, our current remote stop from where the trappings of modern life do not spoil the view as you are swept back in time.
