Description:Rolling stock storage, some awaiting renovation by the Society.

The Foxfield Railway was built in 1892-1893 to provide a link to the national railway network for the Foxfield Colliery, on the Stoke-Derby main line. The railway itself was built by local labour provided by the North Staffordshire Railway.

The railway closed with the colliery in August 1965. The Foxfield Light Railway Society was formed to protect the line, and now visitors can experience the line between Blythe Bridge and Dilhorne.
