Special Event for Sunday 20th June 2021

Take a scenic ride through the picturesque Essex countryside with our steam and diesel services.

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?
