Camelot's tender crest is now an example of British Railway's later design, the "demi-lion rampant, the British Lion, holding between the paws a silver locomotive wheel". Thanks to Heritage Painters, part of their recent repaint of the locomotive. HERITAGE PAINTERS, 29 June, 2021.

Camelot passes Sharpethorn, BRIAN LACEY, 24 June 2019

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.

After a successful Test Run, JULIAN HEINEMANN, 11 January, 2020.

The Society owns a SR CCT (Southern Railway Covered Carriage Truck). This was purchased for use 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; especially to the late Richard Maxwell who passed away earlier this year, and who re-instated all the mechanical gear, to make it 'a runner' again.
