Foxfield Railway beyond Dilhorne Park
Foxfield Railway beyond Dilhorne Park

The railway normally only operates passenger services from Caverswall Road to Dilhorne Park as beyond there the line completes a 180 degree turn whilst descending 100 feet in just over 2/3 of a mile along the Foxfield Bank which, with gradients as steep as 1 in 19, is the steepest standard gauge adhesion incline in the country. It takes two engines coupled together to haul wagons up the bank so is only worked on special Gala days.
