About A Victorian Day Out
on Britain's Bluebell

A Victorian Day Out is a Steam Safari by Erik Ledbetter.  The Steam Safaris are a series of railway adventures aboard the great preserved steam trains of Europe and North America.  You can explore the other Safaris by clicking here, or on the Steam Safari! link in the navigation bar at the bottom of the page.

The photographs in A Victorian Day Out were all taken on Saturday February 17, 2001 during the Bluebell Railway's 2001 Winter Steam-Up. All the images were taken with an Olympus OM-1 SLR on either Kodachrome 64 or Kodachrome 200. Slides were scanned for the Web using an HP Photosmart S20 slide scanner and processed using Adobe Photoshop 4.01 for Windows.

The Bluebell Railway is located in East Sussex near the scenic Ashdown Forest. The railway is owned and operated by the Bluebell Railway Preservation Society, a non-profit voluntary membership organization. The Bluebell is 100% steam powered, and operates weekends all year round and daily May-September. The line can be accessed via Connex SouthCentral's service from London Victoria to East Grinstead, connecting at the station to the 473 bus service. For further information, see the Bluebell's excellent and comprehensive Web site at http://www.bluebell-railway.co.uk.
