East Sussex - Bluebell Railway Preservation

East Sussex - Bluebell Railway Preservation

  • Level access is available from each of the station drives.
  • Our stations have bridges or subways connecting the platforms, but those with walking difficulties or wheelchairs can be escorted by our station staff via a ramped crossing between the platforms.
  • Guide Dogs are most welcome on the Bluebell. Train destinations are indicated both visibly (with traditional "finger boards") and through audible announcements.
  • One of our carriages has been extensively modified with double-doors, wheelchair lifts and an open saloon.
  • Suitable toilet facilities are available in the ground floor of the "Bessemer Arms" restaurant building.
  • Ramped access and paved gangways are available to view the locomotives within the main Loco Shed.
  • The shop on platform 1 and the museum on platform 2 are both accessible.

    The volunteer run Bluebell Line was the UK's first preserved standard gauge passenger railway, re-opening part of the Lewes to East Grinstead line of the old London Brighton & South Coast Railway in 1960. Since then it has developed into one of the largest tourist attractions in Sussex, yet it still remains true to its objectives of the preservation for posterity of a country branch line, its steam locomotives, coaches and goods stock, signalling systems, stations and operating practices.
