Real Ale Train18 April
Following the success of our Real Ale Trains last year, we're running them again this year!
Running as part of our Spring Diesel Gala, with classic diesel traction at the helm, the train fare is just £12 for travel after 5pm - with a small discount if booked more than two weeks in advance. (£6 for holders of our residents railcard). If you wish to enjoy the full day with us, then our All Day Rover ticket includes travel all day during the Diesel Gala on the Real Ale Train.
We plan to have a selection of local real ales and 2 ciders available, bottled ales together with bar snacks, onboard the train in the Flag and Whistle Bar. You can also purchase your own souvenir glasses from the bar. The Flag and Whistle will also now accept contactless payments.
Leave the car at home!
There will be buses from Epping and Shenfield (a single return journey is included in the price of your ticket) and a final bus to connect with the last train arriving at North Weald or Ongar will also be provided. Please see times below.
Real Ales and Ciders
The real ales and ciders we expect to be available will appear here closer to the evening.
We can offer a hot food option of fish and chips for an addtional charge of £10.00. This will be served on the train at your seat during the evening. This option must be pre-ordered. This can be done online, below. Alternatively, bar snacks will be available throughout the evening.
The timetable for the evening will be available in early April. Real Ale services will run from 5pm to 9.30pm, with bus connections from Epping Underground and Shenfield stations.
