Great Eastern Delight

The Epping-Ongar Railway (EOR) is an active heritage line dating back to 1865. At about 20 miles from London's Trafalgar Square it is the closest standard gauge preserved steam line to the Capital. The attractive undulating Essex landscape and the history embedded therein make for a rewarding visit. Added to that, the steam and diesel trains which ply between the Victorian stations, and the connecting vintage buses, all provide added attraction to the young, the old and the die-hard transport enthusiast!
The following four pages record my four visits in which I witnessed: the early days of preservation in 2006, a railway transformed in 2012 and the line going from strength to strength in 2016 and 2017. The Great Eastern Railway crest reminds you, the visitor to these pages, of the origins of this line. I hope you enjoy your time travel.
