Bluebell Railway

here for the official Bluebell Railway Web Site.

The Bluebell Railway runs from Kingscote station which can be accessed from East Grinstead by a special bus service, to Sheffield Park station.

The volunteer run Bluebell Line was the UK's first preserved standard gauge passenger railway, re-opening part of the Lewes to East Grinstead line of the old London Brighton & South Coast Railway in 1960. The line closed in 1955 and again in 1958, BR was forced to re-open it in 1956 before they could close it legally in 1958, but this delay was undoubtably instrumental in allowing time for preservation proposals to come to fruition.

Since then it has developed into one of the largest tourist attractions in Sussex, yet it still remains true to its objectives of the preservation for posterity of a country branch line, its steam locomotives, coaches and goods stock, signalling systems, stations and operating practices.
