Locomotives and Carriages shown on this page are those rostered, but cannot be guaranteed since plans can (and often do) change at short notice due to operational circumstances.

2nd Class Please note that where a carriage is shown as having Second Class seating this reflects its designation when last in service with British Railways. All non-First Class tickets on the Bluebell Railway are Third Class, as was in use until it was reclassified as Second Class (later Standard Class) in 1956.

This page is updated by to whom any queries should be addressed. Special thanks to Gordon Dudman for helping with updates.
