Upcoming Events

In addition to our regular steam and diesel hauled services, we have special events on some weekends. Details appear below as our plans evolve. Tickets for these events can be booked from the event page.

Our usual heritage buses will run in conjunction with these events making it easy to reach us from Epping Underground and Shenfield National Rail stations (the Shenfield bus does not run for some events as detailed on the event page).
