    The 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 preserved for posterity a country branch line, its steam locomotives, crashes, and goods stock, signaling systems, stations and operating practices.

    In the southwest of England lies the Avon Valley Railway running southeast from urban Oldland Common, through one rural Bitton and into the beautiful Avon Valley. Built in 1865, this former Midland Railway branch line, in the heart of GWR territory, connected Bristol with Bath. Linking up with the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway, the branch became the mainline route.
