Step back in time with Epping 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 running though Epping Forest.

Family Summer Steam – 12 and 13 May

On the weekend of the 12 and 13 May, 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 logo badge as a memento of your day.
