Steam railway in Essex

The longest stream heritage stream railway in Essex railway!

Listen Live below as we chat with Dean Walton from The Epping and Ongar Railway in Essex.

This idyllic steam railway route runs around 6 and a half miles. That is between Epping and Ongar in Essex and was opened in 1865. The line closed in 1994 but now fully re-opened for you to enjoy.   This is the longest heritage railway in Essex and the closest to London. The rail line is easily accessible via the tube network. Enjoy the vintage buses start from the front door of Epping Underground station, whisking you back in time to the period stations with steam and diesel hauled heritage trains. Work continues  towards the long term aim of once again running passenger trains to connect at Epping for the benefit of visitors, the local communities and economy.
