Locomotive Stock List

BR Standard 4MT 2-6-4T class No. 80151 was rescued from Barry scrapyard in 1974 by a group based in Essex, and came to the Bluebell Railway in 1998, entering traffic in 2001. It is now in its second period of operation on the Bluebell following an overhaul undertaken between 2015 and 2019.

This stock list provides access to photographs and web pages for each engine. The Operational Locomotives page gives more detailed information about those you will find working the
trains, and the Locomotive Roster indicates which we expect to be working on any particular day.
The Bluebell Railway has the UK’s largest and most comprehensive collection of locomotives from the former Southern Railway and its three main constituents. It also, surprisingly, has the largest collection of BR standard design steam locomotives. This is the finest collection outside of the National Railway Museum in York and Shildon, and many are unique survivors of their particular design (indicated *). Bold is used to inicate date of construction.
