Notices for Members



Notice – AGM 2021

A notice has been published concerning the 2021 EGM and AGM.

Interim management changes on company board

An announcement has been published regarding change to the Interim Chairmanship of the Bluebell Railway plc.

Bluebell News Magazine

The Spring and Summer 2021 editions of Bluebell News were initially published online, and are available to download here.

These two issues have now been printed and were posted to BRPS members along with the Autumn 2020 edition (which is also now available online).

Please be assured that this decision is entirely due to the extenuating financial and logistical circumstances caused by the Covid-19 crisis. The standard magazine format delivered by post has now resumed.


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.

Bluebell News – BRPS Chairmanship – BRPS AGM & EGM postponement

Please see this joint Note from BRPS and Bluebell Railway PLC concerning the online delivery of Bluebell News, Steve Bigg assuming the role of acting chairman of BRPS, and the postponement of the AGM and EGM which had been scheduled for 23 May 2020.
