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 Bluebell station next to East Grinstead main line station,
New Track signals and a new station platform at East Grinstead were then needed for the Bluebell trains.
This now gives the Bluebell railway a mainline connection
