Bluebell Railway Sixty Years of Progress by Colin Tyson

Written by Colin Tyson the editor of the Bluebell Railway’s house journal Bluebell News, this book charts sixty years of progress as the railway celebrates its diamond anniversary in 2020. The 1960s were dominated by raising funds to purchase the freehold of the line from British Railways, after which it never looked back. The 1970s to 1990s saw growth in supporting infrastructure and tentative steps to extend the line north a further 6 miles to join the national network at East Grinstead – an ambitious project successfully completed in 2013.

Recent developments have included more undercover accommodation for its heritage assets and secondary railway-themed attractions to continue its appeal to families and enthusiasts alike.
