Epping Ongar Railway

Category: Standard Gauge Railway


The Epping Ongar Railway operates on a preserved railway along the final section of the old Great Eastern Railway and London Underground Central Line branch line between Epping and Ongar, with an intermediate station at North Weald. The line was reopened in late 2004 after 10 years of closure (operating a Sunday and Bank Holiday service using a Class 117 diesel multiple unit), running between Ongar and Coopersale. The service is provided by volunteers who maintain the line as well as run the trains. The land and infrastructure is owned by a separate company, Epping Ongar Railway Ltd.

The line is presently closed to facilitate major engineering works, with an expected reopening of late 2009/early 2010. This is dependant on the level of active volunteers.
