Amerton Railway

29th April 2023

The Amerton Railway is a fine 2ft gauge railway situated between Uttoxeter and Stafford.

We arrived just before the service started on a cloudy Saturday morning, which was a diesel day.

The loco was originally used underground in the coal industry and is flame proofed.

Chartley Halt serves the popular picnic area.

The railway is a circuit passing through very pleasant farmland.

The train arrives at Amerton station as passengers watch from the platform shelter.
