Based at the Foxfield Railway, Blythe Bridge, near Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, the Iron Curtain Vehicle Rally is an ever-popular and a permanent fixture in our calendar.

Nearly 30 years since the political upheavals marking the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and the end of the Cold War, the Iron Curtain Vehicle Rally brings together some of the unique vehicles produced by those regimes on the ‘other side’ of the Wall that were such an iconic part of those momentous times.

Saturday 14 July 2018:  ‘Cold War Classic’ vehicles head out on a leisurely road-cruise through the wonderful scenery and historic towns and villages of the fabulous Staffordshire Moorlands and into the Peak District National Park.  The relaxed schedule will include several stops for re-grouping, photos, sight seeing and refreshments.  Detailed route maps will be provided.

For those staying over, the celebrated bar at the Foxfield Railway will be open into Friday and Saturday evenings to round off the days.

Sunday 15 July 2018:
 ‘Cold War Classic’ vehicles will be displayed on the station forecourt.  There’ll be plenty of time to meet up with colleagues and the visiting public and enjoy a steam ride on the historic Foxfield Railway.

ALL vehicles with an Eastern Bloc pedigree are welcome.

Join us either day, or both, or stay the weekend – you’ll be very welcome!  Prior booking is not required and there are no fees for taking part.

There are many B&Bs in the area or there is free camping and caravan space available from midday Friday 13 July 2017 on the field alongside the station.  Lavatories and a shower will be open throughout.

Evening meals are available in local pubs, restaurants and take-aways.  Sunday breakfast will be served in the Station buffet.
