Steam and Scream on our Halloween Ghost Trains26, 27, 28 October
Dare you ride the Ghost Train to North Weird?
Our popular Ghost Trains are running again this year and this year we guarantee ever more Halloween fun!
We've changed things a little this year and expect that you will enjoy yourself more than ever!
At North Weird you'll find all sorts of fun and spooky things to do. We've kept some of the previous traditions so expect to see our spookily decorated trains and zany characters (and that's not just the other passengers!) wandering around.
Make time to visit the Halloween marquee at North Weird. John, our resident magician, will be giving magic shows throughout the day; there will be a silent disco and, for the grown ups, a bar.
We will also have a Ghost Hunt - follow the clues and find all the ghouls hidden around the railway! You may even get to travel on our Ghost Bus!
There'll be spooky food to buy and for an additional charge our facepainters will be around. The owls from the Epping Forest Hawk and Owl Sanctuary will also be flying in for a visit!
Trains and buses
Trains run from lunchtime and into the evening on Friday and Saturday; an earlier start on Sunday makes the Epping Ongar Railway a perfect place to bring the children before they go back to school.
Your all inclusive ticket allows you travel on our buses from Epping to North Weird Station and train travel between Ongar and North Weird Station, and, if you joined at Ongar, travel on the Ghost Bus back from North Weird. The Ghost bus may also make some journeys to and from Epping station.
