We explicitly construct the twistor spaces of some self-dual metrics with torus action given by D. Joyce. Starting from a fiber space over a projective line whose fibers are compact singular toric surfaces, we apply a number of birational transformations to obtain the desired twistor spaces. These constructions are based on a detailed analysis of the anticanonical system of the twistor spaces.
