Bluebell Branch Line Gala March 2019

The Bluebell Railway's Branch Line Gala over the weekend of 15-17 March 2019 is set to have a London & South Western Railway theme.

LSWR O2 class 0-4-4T No.24 'Calbourne' is confirmed as attending, making a rare visit to the UK mainland from the Isle of Wight and this will be the loco's first visit to the Bluebell. The Bluebell is looking into the possibility of also bringing in the NRM's LSWR 'Beattie Well Tank' (0298 class) 2-4-0WT No.30587.

The two resident LSWR locos at Sheffield Park - B4 class 0-4-0T No.96 'Normandy' & 'Adams Radial Tank' (0415 class 4-4-2T No.488) are both out of traffic, but the Bluebell intends to put them on display.

Other locos from the home fleet will also be in action and are likely to include a quartet from the SECR - P class 0-6-0Ts Nos.178 & 323 'Bluebell', H class 0-4-4T No.263 and O1 class 0-6-0 No.65.
It is possible that BR 4MT 2-6-4T No.80151 may also be back in traffic by then.
