The Epping Ongar Railway, a heritage line with lots of big steam trains has gained a smaller counterpart – a fully working miniature steam railway.

A small team of volunteers who help run the big engines also own and operate a number of 7¼ inch gauge locomotives and ride on carriages.

Although a separate organisation, they work together to put on miniature steam rides when the big ones are also running. So visitors can sit in a carriage for some trips, and on top of a smaller carriage for others.

The Epping Ongar Miniature Railway was formed last year when then acquired their Stafford locomotive.

Planned operating dates for Miniature Railway, at either Ongar or North Weald station. Rides on the miniature railway are a separate charge from the big railway.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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 your read on here, then please support the website here.
