    Statfold Barn held their 2020 Enthusiast Days on 8th/9th August. With their March event cancelled it was the first chance to see the former Hampshire Narrow Gauge Trust locomotives Wendy and Cloister in action since they joined the collection, along with the first public appear of the K1 Garratt since her rapidly completed overhaul.



    I visited on Sunday, my first visit and was very impressed with the site. They had excellent covid measures in place, regular hand sanitisation points, masks worn on trains and inside all museum buildings and the fact it is a lovely large site which can walk the full length as well as ride the trains meant the restricted numbers attending were able to nicely spread out.
