Welcome to the Bluebell Scenes Screensaver!
There are a total of 39 pictures spread over 17 slides, with the various clips on this page all being included and giving a rough idea what to expect.
It is hoped that the screensaver will appeal to all tastes as a wide variety of pictures are included, many previously unpublished on this website.
Action shots are mixed in with those of volunteers at work, while there are also some 'atmospheric' pictures, taken of subjects that would pass un-noticed by many visitors but which contribute to making the Bluebell one of the best preserved lines in the country.
Hopefully there is at least one picture included to please everyone!
The screensaver is available for download as an exe (program) file, and will only work on MS Windows operating systems.
The file size is 2.8Mb so should take about 10 minutes to download on a dial-up 56k modem, although it will be much quicker if you are using broadband.
Once downloaded, run the 'bluebellrailwayscenes.exe' program and the screensaver will be automatically installed.
By right clicking on your desktop and selecting 'Properties', 'Screensaver' and then 'Settings', you will be able to change the slide transitions and the time for which each slide displays.
The default settings will make each complete run of slides last just under 3 minutes.
It is suggested that you do not alter the image size since this will cause distortion of the pictures.
Although this screensaver is free to download, it is suggested that if you enjoy it, you consider making a small donation towards Operation Undercover.
Full details of the project, and how to donate, are available here.
