Family Fun Day17, 18 August

It's our 'Family Fun Day' - as much fun as a day by the seaside but with steam trains and vintage buses! Moreover getting to the Epping Ongar Railway by public transport couldn't be easier. So, avoid the queues to the coast and take the Central Line tube to Epping or National Rail to Shenfield where your day out with us starts right there! 

Remember too that with our trains with big tables it's a great reason to have a picnic on the train. We promise you won't get sand in your sandwiches!
