Published:  24 May, 2012

GREAT BOOKHAM: The Bluebell Railway unveilled it new running in board at Sheffield Park station on Wednesday 25 April which was completed thanks to a donation from independent builders merchant Chandlers Building Supplies.

Chandlers supplied Bluebell Railway with a variety of materials including timber and hardwood ply to enable the sign, located on Platform 1 to be replaced and was constructed by Chandlers customer, Alan Brown.

Michael Sharps, assistant branch manager at Chandlers Great Bookham commented: “The new running board looks fantastic, Alan has done a great job.

"Bluebell Railway is completely managed by volunteers and we are delighted to have been able to help with the preservation of the railway by supplying the material to enable the new sign to be constructed.”
