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 Bluebell station next to 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 platform 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.
