Bluebell Railway

The 50th Anniversary of Closure

was commemorated on Sat 28, Sun 29 & Mon 30 May 2005

Photo reports from the Gala from our photographers: 50 years ago British Railways closed the Bluebell line between Lewes and East Grinstead. This first closure was found to be illegal and the line subsequently reopened for a short period, during which time the impetus to preserve the line was born.

This gala Bank Holiday weekend event commemorated the anniversary with a train service of the period.
