BRPS – new documents now online

Following the last AGM:

BRPS becomes a Company Limited by Guarantee – 1 January 2022

Today marks the Society’s transition from an unincorporated association to a Company Limited by Guarantee, as approved at the Society’s EGM last October. All current members have been transferred to the new Company. The Society’s name remains the same as we have been granted exemption from using “Limited”, so we appear on the Companies House website as Bluebell Railway Preservation Society, company number 13745313, registered in England. All the officers and trustees are now Directors of the company but will continue to be called Trustees.

View the Certificate of Incorporation and Articles of Association (the latter now superseded, see above).


Please note that a change in policy will result in notices of the deaths of Bluebell staff and volunteers being circulated via internal channels, and full obituaries appearing in Bluebell News magazine.

Preservation Standards Manual

We are pleased to be able to publish the first edition of our Preservation Standards Manual, which details how everything on and about our Railway should be presented. This is a major undertaking, and there are some sections yet to be fully completed, and it will probably always remain a work in progress as new research is still uncovering refinements.
