You are one of the many
visitors who look for new pictures on our web site each day.
We have recently been
concentrating on photographs and comments about work to the new Bluebell Railway
northern extension to East Grinstead. Now that this is completed
(although in our opinion nowhere near finished) we are spreading
our coverage to other unusual views of the Bluebell and other
placed on the latest page first after which they are transferred to
archive or backup pages on a weekly basis. All are accessible
from this main index page which is
directly linked from every page header.
Our index page also has before and after maps of Imberhorne cutting together
with up to date diagrams of the work.
The Bluebell Railway runs steam services
between East Grinstead and Sheffield Park in Sussex. Sheffield
Park is best known for the large house and gardens of the same
name which are a half mile or so up the road from the station.
Other places served include Horsted Keynes,
where the station is about a mile from the village proper and
Kingscote which is nowhere that is near nowhere else! A walk up
from the station to Horsted Keynes village will allow you to
visit either of the two pubs and the village church (probably
best in that order!). The church is well over 1000 years old and
built on an ancient Dolman circle. For more information on the
village take a look at
There also used to be a station at West Hoathly
but this has unfortunately been demolished and trains no longer
stop there. This makes the run from Kingscote to Horsted Keynes
which also goes through a half mile long tunnel one of the
longest uninterrupted runs on British preserved steam railways.
