The Bluebell Railway's 2007

BRANCH LINE WEEKEND


Fenchurch and Victorian 4-wheelers at 2007 Branch Line weekend - Richard Thomas

was on Sat 24th & Sun 25th February

The weekend featured a busy and varied timetable of Branch Line Trains with departures both days at roughly 35 minute intervals.

Six of our smaller locomotives (see below) were used, along with pre-grouping (LBSCR, LCDR, SECR and LNWR) and Southern Railway (Maunsell and Bulleid) coaches.

The photo on the right (from Richard Thomas) was taken on the Saturday. Fenchurch is seen arriving at Horsted Keynes with the LBSCR first No.661 and the LCDR brake 3rd No.114.
