Giants Of Steam At The Bluebell Railway

There are lots of special events planned at the Bluebell railway during 2018. This autumn

The Giants Of Steam arrive at the railway running from the 12th - 14th October 2018.

Two very special locomotives will be visiting the railway this year –

  • Gresley A4 Pacific No. 60009 “Union of South Africa” (courtesy of the Cameron Trust)

  • LNER Thompson Class B1 No. 61306 “Mayflower” (courtesy of David Buck)

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the iconic “Union of South Africa” before she retires in 2019! Neither of these beautiful steam engines have ever visited us before, so don’t miss this opportunity to come and see them in all their glory! A selection of our own wonderful locos will also be running. You can book your tickets direct with the railway Return of the Giants

Why not make a weekend of it and visit the railway and see the famous autumn display at nearby Sheffield Park, National Trust. Stay in luxury at White Lodge bed and breakfast just a five-teen minute car ride to both venues. White Lodge prides itself in looking after its guests and is the number one bed and breakfast for Lewes as voted by it's visitors on Trip Advisor for the third year running.
