On Wednesday, 17th June, the four original students that thought up the idea of the Bluebell Railway in 1959, and were instrumental in organising the original meeting in Haywards Heath where the Bluebell Railway Preservation Society came into being, are having a grand re-union at Sheffield Park Station, where they will travel on a specially chartered train with the President of the society, a founder member, 101 years old, Bernard Holden MBE.
The students, who are now, all around 70 years of age, are Alan Sturt, Martin Eastland, Chris Campbell and David Dallimore. This is being treated as a very special occasion as it is suspected that it may well be the last time they are all together with the President Bernard Holden. One of them now lives in Canada and has only visited the Bluebell very occasionally in the last fifty years.
They will be travelling on the Wealden Rambler Lounge Car service. The train, with other invited guests - all founder members, will depart at 2.30 for the round trip to Kingscote and back to Sheffield Park.
