50th Anniversary Exhibition of Locomotive Plates

Friday 6 August to Sunday 8 August 2010


As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations the Bluebell Railway Museum Committee are proud to present an exhibition of fifty locomotive plates. The exhibition will be held in the northernmost room of the station buildings on Platforms 1 & 2 at Horsted Keynes station.

The exhibition will comprise a mixture of nameplates, smokebox door plates, works plates and shedplates. These will be supplemented by one or two other unusual items, including at least one nameplate never seen before on public display.

We are also pleased to announce that Brian Mokes and Chris Dickerson from the Sheffield Railwayana Auctions will be present for the three days of the exhibition with their popular Railwayana Valuations Roadshow. Have you ever wondered what that railwayana that has been gathering dust for many years is worth? Why not bring it along and let Brian and Chris give you a free valuation.

The Exhibition and Roadshow will be open from 09.00 to 17.00, from Friday 6 August until Sunday 8 August. Entry will be free, but a small donation would be appreciated to cover the costs of the exhibition.

Do come and see the exhibition; we can guarantee you an interesting visit and a chance to wallow in nostalgia, bringing back youthful memories for some!

The Bluebell Railway Museum Committee would like to thank the following people and organisations for their valuable help in supplying the exhibits and setting up the exhibition:

Chubb Security, Phil Swallow, David Postle and the Kidderminster Railway Museum at the Severn Valley Railway.
Barry Jones, Mike Bacon, John Sharp, Colin Tyson, Roger Cruse and Tony Hillman.
The Bulleid Society, The Bluebell Battle of Britain Locomotive Group, Tim Baker and the Horsted Keynes station staff, Dave Clarke, Richard Salmon, David Chappell, Deborah Salmon and the members of the Bluebell Railway Carriage and Wagon department; and last but not least, Sam Bee (Chairman) and Tony Drake (Curator) along with the members of the Bluebell Railway Museum Committee.
