Next month’s London Transport themed weekend at the Epping Ongar Railway has gained its third LT-liveried locomotive to haul passengers along the line.

The Class 20 diesel locomotive, 20227, will be paying a short visit and completes the rare sight of a trio of similarly liveried locomotives working during the event as it joins previously announced London Transport and former Great Western Railway pannier tank steam locomotive L.92, and former Great Western Railway prairie steam locomotive L.150.

The locomotive, 20227 visits courtesy of the Class 20 Locomotive Society, owners of sister locomotive, 20001, which is resident on the Railway. The last-built class 20 locomotive has worked extensively on the London Underground network, and has been repainted in London Transport livery by its owners in recognition of this.

The London Transport themed weekend runs from 8th-10th October, and tickets can be booked here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I saw it at Bishops Stortford services on the back of a low loader last Saturday and guessed that it was on its way to Epping.
