FolkestoneJack's Tracks

Return to the Bluebell

Posted in England, Horsted Keynes by folkestonejack on August 8, 2010

I returned to the Bluebell Railway with my family on the final day of the 50th anniversary gala, which gave a few further opportunities for photographs – this time with the benefit of added sun!

At the end of the day we made it to Kingscote to board one of the shuttles to see the tip at Imberhorne South. It seems incredible to think that just a mile separates the end of the line from East Grinstead now, particularly thinking back to our visits as children when the line only ran from Sheffield Park to Horsted Keynes. I look forward to catching a train all the way to East Grinstead someday, hopefully in the not too distant future…
