In mid October I visited the Bluebell Railway in Sussex. After problems with engine availability it is good to see they seem to be finding their feet again. With the extension open efforts are being focused on re-grouping.

With the sun quite wintry and seemingly in the wrong place all weekend it lead to some interesting effects.

It did give a very washed out effect to the sky however, I managed to get this as the fireman looked for the right away.
