Throughout each year the galas feature working steam and diesel locomotives, which are often joined by a variety of visiting steam and modern diesel locomotives off the main line.
On special event days train rides are available, pulled by either a steam or diesel locomotive from ‘Roundhouse Halt’, a purpose-built platform. Trains travel around the depot and up the Springwell branch. Trade stands and catering all go together to create a great day out. Visitors by the thousand now make Barrow Hill's special events regular dates in their diary.
Barrow Hill is also home to the Deltic Preservation Society's maintenance depot and museum, adjacent to the Roundhouse. The Deltic Preservation Society's depot is open on Saturdays 10am-4pm, and during some of Barrow Hill's special events.
Entry by donation.
Charges apply on special event days.
Cafe available for food and refreshments.
Please visit our shop selling railway memorabilia and souvenirs.
There is a diversion in place due to a road closure at Junction 29a of the M1; this will add approximately 10 minutes to your journey time if you use this route to reach the Roundhouse. This diversion will be in place until 31st March 2015.
