Murder, Mystery and Intrigue18 September 2021

Morse or Miss Marple could do it. Can you? 

Why not join us for an evening of murder, mystery and mayhem with our professional actors from The Company Upfront?

We take you on a leisurely tour of the entire line from Epping Forest to Ongar whilst you enjoy a meal as you question possible culprits! Please feel free to 'dress to impress' - the possibilities for some serious dressing up are endless.

Murder in the Dark

It's the 1920s.

Join a selected group of guests:

Doctor Sigfried Black
Mrs Mona Grouse
Reverend Edward Coe
Miss Ruby Red
Colonel Charles Colman
Mrs Blanche Colman
Professor Matt Black

as they enjoy an evening of parlour games around the drawing room fire.

With the evening in full swing, events take a dastardly turn for the worse; the lights flicker and then fade; a scream is heard; the lights return;

Someone is dead.

But who, how and why?

The police don't have a Clue. Do you?


The event starts at North Weald from 6.00 pm where you are invited to join our cast of characters for a complementary aperitif and canapes around the station and platform areas. At around 6.30pm you are asked to join the characters and the murder will take place. The train will then be ready to board, you will find your reserved seats on the train. Your detective packs will be set out at your tables too. Drinks during your journey are served from our onboard Flag & Whistle Bar.

The train leaves for Epping Forest at 7.00pm prompt. Main courses are served during a stop at North Weald Station from 7.20pm. During the evening the characters will make their way through the train and offer opportunities for questioning and cross-examinination. From the information and mis-information they give you - are the people on your table smart enough to solve the crime. There's only one way to find out! The winning party will receive a bottle of wine!

All seats are reserved on this train and come in groups of 4. We won't split up a group that is 4 or fewer people, but the layout of train means that it is inevitable that a group of 5, 6 or more cannot sit at the same table. If you would like to sit with, or near, a group that has made a booking under a different name then please send an email to


Fares for this year are £75 per person. Just to remind you, this includes:

We think it all adds up to a fantastic night out!
