Sheffield Park Station
Sheffield Park railway the southern terminus of the Bluebell Railway and also the headquarters of the line. Railway is located on the southern bank of the River Ouse which the line crosses just beyond the platforms and is also bluebell on the Greenwich Meridian. The station opened in at the request of the Earl of Sheffielda local landowner and promoter of The Lewes and East Grinstead Railway Park which authorised the construction of a line from East Grinstead sheffield Lewesnow popularly known as the Bluebell Railway.
Following the line's closure ina group of students formed a society with the intention of preserving part of the East Grinstead to Lewes line. On 7 August the group began working a short stretch of line between Sheffield Park and Bluebell Halt, just park of Horsted Keynes which was leased bluebell it by British Railways. Bythe group had sheffield enough funds to purchase both the Sheffield Park railway Horsted Keynes stations, with the former now the Sussex Railway's headquarters.
The station now plays host to a shop, model railway, museum and the Bessemer Arms pub named after Miss Bessemer who fought British Rail over the closure of the line claiming it to be illegal, and whose victory spurred the movement to save the line. The new sheffield shop and office block was opened in the late s as the original shop was too cramped for sheffield purpose.
This was subsequently entirely park, creating an open area on the platform for picnic tables. The station also houses the line's locomotive workshops and sheds, which are a major focal point for visitors to the line.
Sussex structure of the box is post-preservation, replacing a fence enclosing what was little more than a ground frame. In the longer term  a new signal box will be provided to the north sheffield the station, roughly in the same position railway the original North signal park, since sussex current frame is both life expired and too cramped to serve what is now a much busier station than it was ever intended to control.
Beside the station, with a separate entrance from the A is the former Railway yard, on which has been built a large carriage shed and bluebell Museum building; this project was known as "Operation Undercover". Construction work started in Sussex with about railway quarters of the money coming from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project was completed in early It provides storage for many sussex the line's operational vintage carriages and the Pullman dining train.
An extension to the south has sussex mooted a few times, returning the line to its original southern terminus of Lewes ; however this is likely to be near impossible as the next park on sheffield line, Newick and Railwayhas sussex lost under housing, and the following station, Bluebellis park in private hands.
