The Bluebell Railway was Britain's first standard gauge, passenger, preserved railway. After 35 years this outstanding line, set deep in the Mid-Sussex countryside is still at the forefront of steam preservation movement. Beautifully restored stations are complemented by an unrivaled collection of steam locomotives, coaches and wagons. Many of these are seen in action up and down the line, while one of the worlds most glamorous and luxurious trains is recreated in the Golden Arrow Pullman. Behind the scenes, the programme explores the history and the current operation of the railway, and there is also time to visit the National Trust properties at Sheffield Park and Wakehurst Place as well as many other attractions in the immediate area.
