Upcoming Events

In addition to our regular steam and diesel hauled services, we also hold a number of exciting special events, from children's character days to enthusiast gala events. Santa pays a visit at Christmas too! Details appear below as our plans evolve. Tickets for these events can be booked from the event page.

For most events our connecting heritage bus services will operate from Epping Underground and Shenfield stations. Please check the event listing for details.

If there is no event shown on a particular date, do check our calendar as we may be running our standard steam and diesel hauled services.
