Following the resumption of regular passenger services, Epping Ongar Railway has announced a further important milestone has been reached in its goal of running passenger services to connect with London Underground at Epping.

From Saturday 21st July, regular passenger services were extended, and will now be travelling into the Epping Town ward its self, stopping only 1000m from the end of Epping station platforms. While previously only used by engineering trains, this is the first time since 1994 that regular passenger trains have passed along this stretch of the line.

Epping Ongar Railway unveiled its latest COMBINED bus, tube car and train at the Ongar Carnival!

The vehicle is called “SUPERCAR” and was unveiled in January 1991 by London Transport. SUPERCAR appeared in TV adverts, promotional and press days to promote the “One Day Travelcard” (formally called the Capitalcard)!

Supercar will be out and about this summer, attending a number of functions and making some surprise appearances… so keep your eyes peeled and cameras ready… next week Supercar will be at the Bus Rally on 1st July at North Weald airfield, when there will also be a special shuttle bus linking the railway and Bus Rally, details from the timetables page on our website.
