Branch Line Weekend – Friday 15th to Sunday 17th March 2018

Come along for a fun-packed weekend showcasing Bluebell Railway’s small locomotives.

A busy timetable will recreate the branch line feel of our Railway in its heyday by concentrating on the use of our smaller Bluebell locomotives, plus our very special visitors....

O2-class No.W24 'Calbourne' (courtesy of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway Company Ltd) and 0298-class No.30587 Beattie Well Tank (courtesy of the National Railway Museum)

Along with our own B4-class No.96 'Normandy' and 0415-class No.488 Adams Radial Tank (both on display in our loco shed), these 2 locomtotives will form a spectacular gathering of LSWR built locos.

Supported by Bluebell SECR locos H-class No.263, P-class Tank No.323 'Bluebell', P-class Tanl No.178 & O1-class No.65, our 2019 Branch Line Weekend will have a great pre-grouping flavour!

On Friday we will be operating an increased frequency timetable between East Grinstead and Sheffield Park, featuring shorter trains hauled by a selection of locomotives.

On both Saturday and Sunday, it will be a case of 'All Change at Horsted Keynes' with a pcaked timetable of trains between both Sheffield Park and East Grinstead and with frequent changes of locomotives.

So, plenty of opportunites ro 'hop on and off' at different stations and watch the locomotives as they 'shunt up and down' at Horsted Keynes to accomodate the mixed timetable.

We'll also be running Brake Vans rides over the weekend at Horsted so there will be lots to experience and enjoy!

More details and a full timetable can be found on our website.
