Special Event for Saturday 12th June 2021

Take a scenic ride through the Essex countryside on board our diesel multiple unit, which offers panoramic views.

See how much wildlife you can spot - you can often see deer in the fields alongside the line, and, if it's sunny, get great views of London as you journey into Epping Forest. Take time to explore the historic town of Ongar, or, alternatively, why not take the train one way and walk back via the many local footpaths?

All services will be operated by our heritage diesel multiple unit today.
