The Epping Ongar Railway newsletter

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!

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.

All three heritage transport experiences are included in one great value ticket - and it's valid ALL day long! With enthusiast and family events throughout the year, there's something for everyone.

We look forward to welcoming you on board "London's Local Line"
