Signal box at Kingscote station in 2006
 
This box at the North end of Kingscote station was not in use by the Bluebell Railway when I took this photo, the railway had not yet opened to East Grinstead. The signals were in place, but it would be 2016 after the the railway opened to East Grinstead that this box was to fully take over from the box (Cabin) below.
 
This signal box or cabin was from Brighton Upper Goods Yard. It has a new brick base. This the cabin was built here in 1996. It was to be 2016 be for it was fully in use and the small ground frame cabin taken out of use in the photo below.

The Bluebell Railway was the first standard gauge railways to to be reopened by as a preserved railway in the UK. It ran only from Sheffield Park to the small Bluebell Halt at first. Then for a number of years it ran between Sheffield Park station and Horsted Keynes. Trains then used to run from Sheffield Park to Kingscote.
 
Trains are now able to run to a new Bluebell station next to East Grinstead main line station, now that the work to clear the Imberhorne cutting is done. The cutting was filled with household waste from East Grinstead, after the line was closed
 
This now gives the Bluebell railway a mainline connection
