WINNER ANNOUNCED: Win A Family Ticket to Bluebell Railway's Terrier Celebration
Huge congratulations to our winners, Thelma Wright and Claire Bailey!
Come and celebrate Terrier No. 672 Fenchurch’s 150th birthday bash at Bluebell Railway with events from 29 – 31 July 2022...
We've got two family passes to this exciting event taking place in July!
This event will be an enthusiast and family-friendly affair which celebrates the small, but mighty A1, or ‘Terrier’ Class locomotive. Built at nearby Brighton Works, the Terriers were designed in 1870 to haul commuter trains on the heavily congested lines in South and South-East London.
Over the weekend Bluebell Railway hopes to feature special guest engines, but the big celebration will be to see Fenchurch back out and steaming along the rails where she belongs!
The nickname of ‘Terrier’ referred to the distinctive bark sound the locomotive produced when working. A busy timetable will give plenty of opportunity to see the little engine in action and ride behind her. Hop on and off trains all day with your event ticket.
You can start your journey at any of Bluebell Railway's four stations, but don’t forget to refer to the timetable for the day of travel so you can plan where and when you will catch your trains.
Vintage transport including the special guest locomotive ‘Newport’ from the Isle of Wight will be there to celebrate Fenchurch’s birthday. Children can complete trails and learn about transport history over the last 150 years.
At Sheffield Park Station there will also be book signings with children’s authors, an array of STEM education activities, demonstrations, and tours (pre-booking needed).
Plus, bark like a terrier locomotive! Bluebell Railway is dog friendly. A fun dog show will be running on the Friday and Saturday. Classes include a terrier class (of course), but there are classes for non-terriers and terriers in disguise too!
In order to be in with a chance to win one of our two family passes, all you need to do is enter our random draw:
The competition closes on Friday July 8 - best of luck!
