Bluebell Railway - Diamond Jubilee Event

The Bluebell Railway in the United Kingdom (England) is the first preserved standard gauge steam-operated passenger railway in the world to operate a public service. The society ran its first train on 7 August 1960, less than three years after the line from East Grinstead to Lewes had been closed by British Railways. It is is an 11 mi (17.7 km) heritage line almost entirely in West Sussex in England, except for Sheffield Park which is in East Sussex. It is managed by the Bluebell Railway Preservation Society. It uses steam trains which operate between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead, with intermediate stations at Horsted Keynes and Kingscote.

The Bluebell Railway celebrated in 2021 a Jubilee event aptly referred to as 60 + 1 because as it wasn’t possible to hold the event in 2020. In two parts you can enjoy more than an hour of footages which were shot during that jubilee. Enjoy the beautiful British steam trains!
