Bluebell Railway 60th Anniversary Recollections

Details

Initially, the Bluebell Railway operated over five miles of track from Sheffield Park to Horsted Keynes, part of the former East Grinstead to Lewes route that had closed in 1958. Later, once this initial section was secured, the railway began to expand northwards. This process culminated in 2013 with the reopening of the final stretch from Kingscote to East Grinstead. This link restores the Bluebell Railway's connection with the main line rail network, making it readily accessible by public transport from London for the first time. The railway continues to rely for most of its staffing needs on volunteers, who can be found working as platform staff, guards, signalmen, drivers and firemen. Behind the scenes, volunteers are also busy restoring the locomotives and carriages, and maintaining the signals, track and bridges. This new volume draws on the success of Volume 40 in the Railways & Recollections series, bringing the story up to date and published to coincide with the 60th anniversary.
