Loco Sharpthorn at Horsted Keynes This contractor's locomotive was used (hence its name) in the construction of the Lewes and East Grinstead Railway, and so is of great historic interest to the Bluebell. It is seen above being propelled at Horsted Keynes by "Baxter" during the 1982 Lewes & East Grinstead Railway centenary celebrations.

The photo on the right (by Richard Salmon) shows the loco as re-located for display at Horsted Keynes in 2003.
