Foxfield Railway

The Foxfield Railway is based around the original Foxfield Colliery, the line (built in 1893) was closed in 1965 and steadily revived by preservationists.

The railway runs from Caverswall Road, the headquarters, to Dilhorne Park with a small section further on to Foxfield Colliery which includes the steepest adhesion worked incline in the country, at 1-in-19.

The railway took delivery of a Class 101 driving trailer vehicle in 2015, the first railcar vehicle to run on its metals, with a view to usng it as a push-pull hauled coach behind industrial vacuum braked steam and diesel locomotives. However this was not to be and the vehicle was sold on after just two years.

There are currently no vehicles located at the Foxfield Railway
