We are delighted to welcome British Railways class 42 "Warship" diesel hydraulic locomotive D821 "Greyhound" to the Epping Ongar Railway this autumn, courtesy of the Diesel Traction Group. The locomotive is making a rare visit away from it's home base of the Severn Valley Railway and will play a starring role in our Autumn Diesel Gala on 14 and 15 September. The locomotive is also likely to have a running day and we hope to be able to offer some driver experience courses during it's short visit.

Further details of our Autumn Diesel Gala can be found here.

The visit follows that of class 25 locomotive, D7612, which is visiting the Railway for our Spring Diesel Gala, at which it is expected that class 47 locomotive 47635 "Jimmy Milne" will return to traffic.
