This event will celebrate 'One Person Operation' (OPO) buses. All buses at this event will have doors - no open platforms in sight - including those operating the normal 339 service from the forecourt of Epping Underground station to the event.
It is a running day and the railway will be operating trips from North Weald to a variety of destinations, recreating former routes that ran in the area.
The vehicle line up includes:
-GLS 490 - A rare survivor from the batch of Greenway Nationals that were used on the Red Arrow services. Despite being listed on some enthusiast sites as 'presumed scrapped, it certainly isn't and will be in service.
-RMA 48 (NMY 631E) - its first ever day in public service since its career with BEA that finished almost 40 years ago.
If your tastes are more traditional, there will also be RF's plus RCL2260 in service.
The railways usual steam and diesel trains will be in operation between Epping Forest, North Weald and Ongar.
Bus Rovers will be £8, a combined All Day Rover is available for just £14.
