Went to the Steamlights event with my family. Unfortunately one of the guards made conversation whilst I was looking at a map, and started to talk disrespectfully about another railway that me and my family also enjoy, spa valley and we were told to ‘not swear’ at the mention of it and carried on with other comments comparing the two. Just disappointing that the rivalry was mentioned when I was just trying to enjoy the event as a paying customer and really just make me feel uncomfortable as I like both railways and don’t feel the need to be pressured into choosing one. However, this experience has made me feel uncomfortable and I won’t be returning.

The steam lights were a fantastic family experience. The conductor was a true showman and made the whole event light up... literally. The whole experience is really enjoyable, including the train journey to Horsted Keynes and back, the short stop and being able to watch the engine being moved. The Bluebell museum is a really nice visit on its own and was enjoyable to look around once again.

Visited the Bluebell Railway today for the Santa Special . I took my wife, sons and their wife’s and 3 granddaughters We had a fabulous time. It was well organised and we met a very real Father Christmas. I can recommend this experience for any families with small children. Well done to the Bluebell Railway. 10/10.

We took our godson and his older brother to the steamlights train trip last night and they absolutely loved it. We had done the trip last year with my sister and had decided then that our godson would love it. It is very well done and very impressive. The boys also loved looking around the engine shed and seeing all the trains and being able to climb into a couple of them and have a little "play". Can thoroughly recommend this especially for families with children.
