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 ran from Sheffield Park to Kingscote.
 
Trains are now able to run to a new Blubell station at East Grinstead main line station, now that the work to clear the Imberhorne cutting is done. The cutting had been filled with household waste from East Grinstead, after the line was closed.  A lot of this household waste was taken away by train.
 
New Track signals and a new station platforms at East Grinstead were then needed for Bluebell trains.
 
This now gives the Bluebell railway a mainline connection
 
The Bluebell was a steam only line for many years. It still only uses a diesel when it has to.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just on trains but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

This page is about the Bluebell Railway.

Today Virgin East Coast, Great Anglia and Hull trains are just some of the names on the trains. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
