New Timetable Leaflet

The 2003 Bluebell Railway Timetable is now available. New for 2003 includes an increase in the number of "Terrier Specials" that the railway plans to operate

Previous years "Stepney Specials" have been so popular the railway plans to operate similar trains using A1 Fenchurch or Stepney during all school holidays from the summer half term onwards

Also the railways 473-bus service will be diverted on all weekends from April to October to serve The National Trust property at Standen, East Grinstead, a showpiece of the arts and crafts movement. This follows an experiment in August of 2002, which saw an increase in revenue on the bus of 87% above that of the same period in 2001
