27, 28 & 29 MAY 2017

6430 at Blake Hall - Stuart Chapman

Join us as we mark 5 years since bringing steam back to this Eastern country branch line - we've even brought our annual Steam Gala forward to celebrate the occasion!

Our Steam Department are planning to make this the biggest Steam event we've had so far, and have been looking at some interesting potential visitors to appear alongside GWR Pannier No.6430 - these will be announced soon, so be sure to keep your eyes on our Facebook, Twitter and News pages.

An intensive timetable will operate all weekend, providing plenty of opportunities to ride behind all locomotives throughout the bank holiday weekend. 

Isabel stars in a new book

For fans of our little industrial tank engine 'Isabel', or parents looking to introduce their young ones to the world of steam engines, you'll be able to pick up copies of "Isabel Finds a Home", written by Robert Gillman, one of our own volunteers! 

Our vintage bus fleet will be on hand to transfer you to and from Epping Underground and Shenfield National Rail stations, all included in your Gala Rover fare; we expect additional buses will be scheduled so as not to keep you waiting too long.

The full details for the weekend will be published once finalised, but we look forward to welcoming you on board for what will no doubt be another fantastic Steam-based event.
