Great day out, relaxing ride through the countryside with stop overs at East Grinstead and Horstead Keyes to see the stations. Smells of oil and steam coal bring back memories of childhood before the end of steam on the railways. Very clean and tidy on...More

The last time we went on the Bluebell Railway was 30 years ago when the kids were smaller and the line shorter than today. Apart from the extension to East Grinstead, nothing has changed. It's still an excellent day out, with nostalgia the main attraction....More

We spent a lovely time at this great working station with interesting museum and engine sheds. The plough mans lunch is excellent and served in the traditional way. The return trip to East Grinstead gave passengers views of the countryside. Highly recommended

The web site doesn't give any details of the departure time and return time of the Dinner Pullman on a Saturday. Perhaps some better information should be added as other railways appear to manage to show such times, e.g. Kent and East Sussex. So, what are the times?
