Bluebell Railway

The 2000 Bluebell Railway's STEAM FAIR

was held on 29th & 30th July 2000

at Horsted Keynes Station, West Sussex

We regret there is no steam fair during 2001, due to the problems of planning the event with the uncertainty earlier in the year over access to the farmland usually used. The event has been replaced by a "Summer Giants of Steam" for 2001, but the Steam Fair will return in 2002.

Fowler Road Locomotive

Over 500 vintage cars, tractors, commercial vehicles, motor bikes and steam road engines assembled at Horsted Keynes Station to take part in the 2000 Bluebell Railway Steam Fair.

Vintage Cars

Harris Brothers' vintage fun fair was powered by two mighty Showman's Steam Locomotives all weekend, helping to give a taste of yesteryear to the many visitors who attended.

The steam fair opened at 10.00am each day, and on the Saturday continued through to 11 o'clock at night. An ideal opportunity to see a fun fair in operation with all its bright coloured lights.

A real ale tent and fine food was also be available, together with Punch & Judy shows for the children.

Cattle Wagon

Not only were there vintage road vehicles, but there was also the famous Bluebell Railway to enjoy.

Vintage Tractors

At Sheffield Park there are the engine sheds to explore and a museum with a large number of railway artefacts that were once commonplace on railways throughout the country, but today are sadly lost. The steam railway operates on a round trip of 18 miles throughout the delightful unspoilt Sussex countryside.

Gunner Road Locomotive

Steam trains operated every 40 minutes from 10.30am until 5.00pm. On Saturday evening a Victorian train operated consisting of Stroudley Terrier "Stepney" built 125 years ago together with our 100-year old teak-bodied Metropolitan Coaches and the GNR Directors' Saloon.
