Epping and Ongar Railway
Step back in time with Epping and Ongar Railway (EOR) and experience the romance of travel in bygone times. EOR is both the longest heritage railway in Essex and the closest to London, easily accessible via the tube network. Their vintage buses start from the front door of Epping and Shenfield stations, whisking you back in time to period stations, with heritage steam and diesel hauled trains.
Family Summer Steam
Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 July 2017
On the weekend of the 15 and 16 July, London Transport Museum is joining EOR in celebrating its long association with the Underground and London Transport, with two days of heritage train rides, family activities and lots of fun. Visit the Museum team in the marquee at North Weald station to enjoy creative activities for families. Get crafty and design your own London Transport badge as a memento of your day.
This special weekend will feature the very popular ‘Met 1’ locomotive resplendent in a maroon London Transport livery alongside a Class 20 locomotive similarly liveried. The stations will receive a make-over to return them to a time when London Transport services ran between Epping and Ongar.
A carefully curated selection of London Transport Museum gifts and products will also be available for sale over the weekend including Underground themed books, toys and exclusive models.
