Visit Bluebell Railway

Enjoy the atmosphere of this well established line, with its superbly preserved steam engines and beautiful coaching stock. The ‘Bluebell’ is home to the largest collection of Southern Railway locomotives in the UK! The 22-mile round trip provides an authentic steam-era experience thanks to the hard work done by the volunteers who run the railway.

Steam trains on the Bluebell run through the heart of the Sussex Weald between East Grinstead and Sheffield Park.

Railway themed events are held throughout the year - you can find out all about the railway, its history and events from the website.
