Bluebell Railway - Funding for the Future

Those of you who have travelled on the Bluebell Railway recently will have noticed there are sections of the line where the journey is a little uneven. This is due to track wear. The Railway wishes to accelerate its programme of track renewal; thus we have launched the Tr(ack) Action Appeal to raise funds to do so. In addition to improving passenger comfort the renewed track will reduce maintenance costs on locomotives and carriages.
Queen's Award for Voluntary Service Please do donate to our Tr(ack) Action Appeal now if you are able to. You can read more details about the Appeal here.
The Bluebell Railway Preservation Society was founded in 1959, and since the commencement of steam operated services in 1960, we have seen over 5 decades of volunteer support for the operation of the Railway, which has been recognised by the granting of The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

Our hugely successful Keep up the Pressure appeal, to overhaul boilers for some of our steam locomotives, and the Cash for Cover appeal to complete the carriage shed extension at Horsted Keynes, both remain open.
