20142 to visit Epping Ongar Railway for First Time



Class 20 loco, 20142, has been confirmed as the final visitor for the Epping Ongar Railway Autumn Diesel Gala. The loco has recently been repainted in a striking LT livery and the visit to the EOR will be the first chance to see it hauling passenger trains. The loco visits the EOR courtesy of Michael Owen.

The loco will be replacing all previous duties booked for D8001 which despite much hard work by the Class 20 Locomotive Society to get it ready for the gala simply ran out of time.

03170 will operate “Driver For A Fiver” on Saturday and Sunday from North Weald, but our other shunter, 03119 is not in traffic unfortunately and will not be taking part in the Gala.

Cab rides will be available throughout the day see the driver on the day and get your name down. Standard cab-ride fares ise £5 (£10 for Deltic) and all subject to availability.

Current line up will be;

03170 Driver for a Fiver (Sat and Sun)
2050205 will be used as loco hauled stock for air only 08683
