Track-lifting is underway at West Hoathly station in January 1965.The locomotive is an ex-North London Railway Class 75 tank engine that was withdrawn from Rowsley Shed in December 1960. It was stored at Barrow Hill for two years before coming to the Bluebell in 1962. In 1964 it was hired by the demolition contractors for lifting the track between Ardingly and East Grinstead. It was later used for rebuilding the same line when the Bluebell's northern extension was under construction.
