The Bluebell Railway
The Bluebell Railway was formed in 1959 out of the Lewes and East Grimstead Railway Preservation Society, in response to a British Railways' demand that an unincorporated body could not operate a Light Railway Order to run trains over the old Lewes and East Grimstead railway line. The line's proximity to London has meant a solid operational front, and on the day that I was there in mid (winter) January 1981, there were goodly numbers of volunteers at work around the line.
