Evening Real Ale Trains21 September

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

Real Ale Trains

Operating as part of our Autumn Diesel Gala, 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.


Leave the car at home!

It's easy to get to us, as a vintage London bus connection will operate from Epping Underground station (Central Line, zone 6), via Epping High Street, for these services. You can plan your journey to Epping on the TfL Journey Planner.


Train and connecting bus times for 21 September

Times for the heritage train and connecting vintage London buses from Epping and Shenfield will be available closer to the evening.
