The Epping Ongar Railway Volunteer Society is the supporting organisation of the Epping Ongar Railway, helping to keep things running smoothly. Your membership and donations help to finance some of the Railway’s projects (such as restoration of some of the rolling stock and Ongar Water Tower construction), as well as providing the volunteer workforce for operating and maintaining most of the rolling stock and infrastructure.
Adult membership is just £20 per year, with junior and family membership options also available.
Members are also able to volunteer on the Railway - we currently have over 200 working Volunteers spanning all ages; you are never too old or too young to play your part. Of course, there’s no obligation to become a volunteer – as a paying member, your support will also be welcome and help us fund additional projects to improve the Epping Ongar Railway further in years to come. You’ll also be able to start working as a volunteer much sooner should your circumstances change in the future.
Members of the EORVS receive the following benefits:
- Four copies per membership term of the journal “Mixed Traffic”, which contains the latest news and developments taking place as carried out by volunteers.
- Discounts on purchases from the refreshment outlets (upon production of valid membership card).
- Discounted travel fares.
- Member’s Social Evenings.
- Free travel tickets when you become a volunteer (based on number of volunteering days per year).
