Come and ride on a narrow gauge steam train in Staffordshire. Amerton Railway is a volunteer-run charity based just outside Stafford at Amerton Farm and is a great family day out.

Arrive, park and visit the railway. It's such a simple process to go through to arrive, pay and ride on the railway. All prices are very reasonable. This is completely volunteer led and they're doing fine. Two semi-open carriages carry passengers along the mile length...More

Given that the Santa trip was only really cheap this is worth doing. Santa was great with the children and did spend a few minutes chatting to us individually. I was just a little disappointed that there wasn’t much more to do there, they have...More

Took our son here after visiting the farm immediately nextdoor. He's big into trains at the minute and absolutely loved it. It's very cute, from the ticket booth and small tickets to the track and the trains themselves. Cheap too. Recommended.More

We enjoyed two rides on this railway which is part of amerton farm. Lovely ticket office staff & train driver. Reasonable prices for a family of 6 and a little quiz sheet for the kids to spot things on the ride to tick off.

We really enjoyed our trip through the fields. Pulled by an interesting old diesel on the train, the ride is punctuated with railway artifacts for the enthusiast and hidden "animals" for the youngsters. A well thought out and enjoyable attraction.
