Emergency Appeal – Please see our donations page for information

Bluebell Railway is closed until further notice. Please click here for information about current bookings.


The Bluebell Railway is a not for profit railway which has been impacted hard by the closedown and has no income during this period.

We have many costs and expenses which do not stop when we are not running trains, and the closure comes after the early part of the year when trains have not been running.

We are therefore appealing for donations to help keep the essential services of the railway running during these period.

Donations can be made online, by cheque, bank transfer and standing order. Please click the link below to find out more.

Steaming Through 60
