Bluebell at 50

Posted in England, Horsted Keynes by folkestonejack on August 7, 2010

Spent the day at the Bluebell Railway for the second day of their 50th Anniversary Gala, starting from Horsted Keynes in the morning before moving on to Sheffield Park and Kingscote. It was hard not to be impressed by the efforts that everyone had put into making this an incredible event – especially the chance to see all the out of action locomotives at Horsted Keynes (rather than top to tail in the loco shed at Sheffield Park) and the display of two standard class 4MT tanks back to back at Sheffield Park (one restored and the other in ex-Barry Scrapyard condition). Apart from that it was lovely to see all the stations looking so wonderful and decorated with colourful bunting. Not even the late afternoon downpour could undo the magic of the day.
