Welcome aboard the website of Epping Ongar Railway!
We are both the longest heritage railway in Essex and the closest to London, easily accessible via the tube network.
Our vintage buses start from the front door of Epping Underground station, whisking you back in time to our period stations with steam and diesel hauled heritage trains.
All three heritage transport experiences are included in one great value ticket - valid ALL day long!
Step back in time with us and experience the romance of travel in bygone times while passing through picturesque countryside, beautiful forest and historic towns. We have our timetables and fares, ideas and suggestions of things to see and do from our stations which are the ideal starting point for a great day out. Have a look at our map showing all the routes of the trains and buses to help you plan your day out, alongside our visiting information, latest news and developments at the railway, details of driver experience and filming opportunities and information for Group Bookings.
You can have a peek behind the scenes at the restoration work that our team of friendly volunteers undertake on infrastructure such as buildings, track, signals and also our rolling stock as we offer a great day out for all the family.
We are continuing the work towards our long term aim of once again running passenger trains to connect at Epping for the benefit of visitors, the local communities and economy.
