The Epping and Ongar Railway is a heritage railway in south-west Essex. England run by a small number of paid staff and team of volunteers, it was the final section of the great Eastern Railway branch line, later the London Underground's Central line from Loughton via Epping to Ongar,with intermediate stations at north Weald and Blake Hall. The Line was closed by London Underground in 1994 and sold in 1998, it was reopened between 2004 and 2007 as a preserved railway, offering a volunteer-run Class 117 DMU service between Ongar and Coopersale. A change of ownership in 2007 led to the line being closed for restoration to a heritage steam railway which opened on May 25th 2012. The line dates back to 1865 so why not join us on this iconic journey back in time with a fish and chip lunch (an alternative offered for those requiring it) a really enjoyable trip for all ages.
