Jon Bowers Bluebell Railway Photos



Not a great picture, as despite the fact that this is the first service of the day from Sheffield Park, the sun is already directly behind the train. In my opinion, the smoke effect from West Country Pacific No.21C123 'Blackmoor Vale' justifies its inclusion here. The location is Ketches Halt.

9F No.92240 rounds the curve at Freshfields with the 12.00 departure from Sheffield Par k.

92240 making light work of Freshfield bank.

No.473 'Birch Grove' coasts into Horsted Keynes with a train from Kingscote.

On a wet day towards the end of the summer, 9F No.92240 restarts from Horsted Keynes.

I was hoping to see No.65 with this train, the first of the day on the 6th September 2001. Instead, the 9F came round the corner, but still made for a pleasing picture with the sun shining !

BR 4MT No.75027 at Freshfields.

The last train of the day, again headed by No.92240, has just shut off to coast into Horsted Keynes.

Nos. 672 and 55 cross Otye Bridge on the beautiful evening of November 4th.

October 1999 Giants of Steam

Jumping back to 1999, and No.65243 is seen shunting wagons at Horsted Keynes for photographers during the very wet Giants of Steam.

Also from the Autumn 1999 Giants, Q1 No.C1 pass es Holywell with the maroon set.


No.847 waits to depart from Sheffield Park in the summer of 1993.
