73082 Camelot is a British Railways Standard Class 5 4-6-0 locomotive built at Derby in 1955 and now owned by the 73082 Camelot Locomotive Society, based on the Bluebell Railway.

At Sheffield Park with a 73A shedplate and no nameplate, BEN JENDEN, 30 June 2019.

The Society raises money to support Camelot through Members' donations and profits from a Sales Stand. A lot of practical support comes from the Bluebell Railway and its members, and this is gratefully acknowleged.


The Society also owns a SR CCT (Southern Railay Covered Carriage Truck). This was purchased as a component store but has now been restored by members of the Bluebell Railway Carriage and Wagon Department as a heritage item to run on demonstration goods trains and at special events. Again, with thanks from the Society.
