The festive steam train light show will be the first of its kind in the South East.

A Sussex heritage railway will be lighting up the winter nights with a seasonal lights spectacular this Christmas.

Bluebell Railway’s new SteamLights event will see trains covered in thousands of colourful lights steam through the countryside between Sheffield Park and Horsted Keynes across the festive period.

Visitors will be treated to an amazing display along the way, with festive scenes among the clearings and a colourful light show orchestrated in time with music and narration.

Bluebell Railway’s Marketing Manager, Ruth Rowatt, said: “We are so excited to bring SteamLights to Sussex.

“Steamlights will be a unique addition to any family’s calendar this Christmas – with festive displays, music and narration, this is a steam train experience not to be missed!”
