Trip To Bluebell Railway Sussex

 

Time to step back in time & see the world of steam. Grease & British engineering at it’s best. With my Trip To Bluebell Railway Sussex.


My trip this month took me to Bluebell Railway Sussex. A lovely quiet area surrounded by trees & open fields, and with the faint whistle, you can hear of the approaching steam locomotives. Arriving into Sheffield Park station on warm October morning.

Along with my trip are two good friends also wanting to take a look at the history of Bluebell railway. looking around the vintage station, capturing as much detail within the station area. There was plenty to see.


09:45 saw the first departure to East Grinstead, watching the locomotive couple up to the main carriages. The staff who all dress in that period uniform looked great to see & were very friendly at all times.

I took with me my three most used lens-70-200mm -24-105mm  & 17-40mm this would be enough to capture all that I needed for some great images.
There is a viewing point track-side on both ends of the platforms in order that you can see some great angles of the trains pulling away. You can get very close to all the trains on site to get some great steam values and cogs & other small details within the engine itself as well the interior controls.
There is a very large locomotive shed which houses almost a dozen other loco’s, as well as a viewing area to see some steam engines being worked on & restored.
All in all a great day out for whole family, with shops & a restaurant, museum you really feel that time has stood still here.
