    Hi Tom.

    I believe that in previous years, you have run "bluebell specials" in April/May, showing trains steaming through bluebell woods.

    Do you know whether any videos are available of these events? Through being cooped up at home, I'm going to be missing two of the usual joys of spring - visits to preserved railways and walks in bluebell woods!

    Thanks in advance for any help that you can give.

    One of mine! Thanks for sharing, I had a lineside permit at the Bluebell from 2007 to 2013 so did a couple of visits through the better areas for the spring flowers like Lindfield Wood. From memory that was one of the better days as it was pretty rare to have Stepney on passenger trains and also 34059 only did a couple of years or so. Couple of other I have dug out...
