Quaintly named after the bluebells which surround the track in Spring, this pretty steam railway runs from East Grinstead to Lewes In Sussex, and is nobly run by volunteers in order to preserve the traditional rolling stock, stations and signalling systems. The Victorian carriages are indeed beautifully looked after and chug happily through the idyllic English countryside. They have been part of several film sets, including those of 'Miss Potter' and 'The Railway Children'. It may also be worth noting that there is a full size 'Thomas the Tank Engine' also running on this route.
