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
