Epping Ongar Railway - 25 years in the making!22nd January 2019
All of us at Epping Ongar Railway would like to wish everyone the very best for 2019, and hope that you will join us during the year and enjoy some of the fantastic events we have lined up.
But why '25 Years In The Making'?
In 1994, London Transport withdrew services from the Epping to Ongar branch of the Central Line. This made the line available for enthusiasts to acquire and repurpose as a Heritage Railway. After a few false starts, and much effort and investment, the working Heritage Railway between Ongar and Epping Forest opened in 2012. Since then the staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly to improve facilities and services. We are really excited about the program of events we have in store for 2019.
Events coming up soon!

Looking Forwards (and Backwards!!)
Our programme for 2019 promises to be our best yet, building on the success of 2018 at Epping Ongar Railway. Last year we carried more passengers than ever before!! This year we want to break that record, and we're adding more and a greater variety of events throughout the year. We really hope you'll come along and be a part of EOR in 2019.
