Picture of the Month Archive

When I started the website in 2001, the Picture of the Month was intended to be a high-quality, desktop sized version of some of the best pictures from the site. Over the last 3 years, image size has gradually increased, and so I have decided to abandon the picture of the month and include more 'high quality' photos in the general photo-reports. Plus, updating the site every month - even if there wasn't a new picture - was a bit of a pain! However, all the pics used so far are still stored on the site and are listed below.

Welcome to Jon Bowers Bluebell Railway Photos

Two Terrier Class locomotives are based at the Bluebell, and they are seen here double-heading an afternoon train away from Horsted Keynes towards Sheffield Park on a wintery New Years Day 2002. Leading is No.672 'Fenchurch', built in 1872, with No.55 'Stepney' of 1875 inside.
