Welcome aboard the Epping Ongar Railway

Step back in time with us and experience the romance of travel in bygone times as you pass through picturesque countryside, beautiful forest and historic towns. We are both the longest heritage railway in Essex and the closest to London, easily accessible via the tube network. We're also the only heritage line that runs on a former part of the tube network!

On most of our operating days, our vintage buses start from the front door of Epping and Shenfield stations, whisking you back in time to our period stations, with heritage steam and diesel hauled trains. Check our events page for details of family and enthusiast events held throughout the year. 

On most of our standard operating days, all three heritage transport experiences are included in one great value ticket - and it's valid ALL day long! It's a great day out for the family and enthusiast alike!

We're on the edge of Epping Forest.  We're London's Heritage Railway. We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
