Track Trek 2018

This summer, the Bluebell Railway will be holding its 6th sponsored “Track Trek” offering a mid-summers evening walk between Horsted Keynes and Sheffield Park stations.

The Trek is raising money for the Tr(ack)Action Appeal, an appeal to raise £250,000 for the renewal of sections of the railway track.

The Trek will start from Horsted Keynes station with registration and safety briefings between 5.00pm and 6.00pm. The last walkers will need to leave Horsted Keynes by 6.20pm.

Cars can be parked at Horsted Keynes station to start the walk, or alternatively you can travel by train from our East Grinstead or Sheffield Park stations, travelling on the 5.15pm train from Sheffield Park or the 5.00pm train from East Grinstead.

There will a special evening train service after the Track Trek has finished to you back to Horsted Keynes and East Grinstead stations.

This is a chance not only you to see the track from a different perspective but also to see first hand the track renewal work that has taken place between Horsted Keynes and Sheffield park since the Tr(ack)Action Appeal was launched in 2017.

It is also a great opportunity to raise money for the Bluebell Railway by getting sponsorship from friends, family and work colleagues. The minimum sponsorship is £25.00pp or £35.00 for a couple or a family (2 adults and up to 3 children aged between 10 and 16 years). Please encourage your sponsors (if they qualify) to Gift Aid their donation so we can claim an additional 25% on their contribution.

To register, please complete a sponsorship form and either send it to Bluebell Railway Track Trek 2018, Sheffield Park Station, East Sussex TN22 3QL or email tracktrek@bluebell-railway.co.uk
