The Bluebell Railway is one of Britain's oldest preserved railways and runs through rural Sussex from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead where it connects with the national rail network. Shot through 2016 this film shows differing aspects of this railway.
We start with a special diesel day where the line was taken over by GB Rail Freight to mark their 10th anniversary by using their own locos to run the service. This shows classes 20, 47, 66 and 73. Next up is an ordinary running day mostly shot at Sheffield Park with a look at the extensive collection of steam locos of mainly Southern origin. We see stock being shunted by the SECR C class steam loco and the class 09 diesel as well as service trains. Finally we cover the Giants of Steam gala where the guest engines are the LNER B12 and LMS 8F.
There is no commentary but an information sheet guides you through. Enjoy it all as if you were there.
