Evening Real Ale Trains4 June

Join our evening services and enjoy a journey through the Essex countryside with Real Ale available from our on board bar! 

Real Ale Trains

Enjoy travel on our evening train services - tickets allow travel on all services after from 16.45. The train will make a number of journeys between North Weald, Ongar and Epping Forest throughout the evening. 

We plan to have a selection of local real ales and ciders available, along with soft drinks and some other products, onboard the train.

Subject to crew availability, these services are planned to be hauled by a steam locomotive. In the event tthat we are unable to operate a steam locomotive then a diesel locomotive will be used. 

Leave the car at home!

It's easy to get to us, as a heritage bus connection will operate from Epping Underground station (Central Line, zone 6), via Epping High Street, for these services.
