Winter Steam Up 2000

Photos taken on Sunday 20th February 2000

The O1 Class No.65 climbs the 1 in 75 up to Horsted Keynes station with the Bulleid set in tow.

Above are two shots of E4 Class No.473 "Birch Grove" with the two beautifully restored Ashbury coaches, seen departing southwar ds from Horsted Keynes.

The 11.25 from Sheffield Park is seen approaching Horsted Keynes, headed by SECR C Class No. 592.

Above left is SECR O1 No.65 again, seen heading the Bulleid set over Holywell Bridge. Above right is a train going in the opposite direction at the same location - Nos. 473 and 55 "Stepney" with a packed LNWR observation car directly behind.

The same location again from across the fields is the setting for Q1 Class No.33001, seen making light work of the 1 in 75 gradient with the afternoon Golden Arrow Pullman. Above right is the train of the day, the triple headed 15.30 from Sheffield Park made up of Nos. 55, 473 and 65 with 7 coaches and a passenger van behind them.

LSWR Class B4 "Normandy" has been described as 'the reason the Bluebell doesn't need a diesel' and is usually only to be found on the Monday shunt, or on station pil ot duties at Sheffield Park. No.96 was given a free reign on a passenger service for the steam up, and is seen here returning from Kingscote, passing the site of West Hoathly station.
