The Epping Ongar Railway (Amberley)

Back Order

The Epping Ongar Railway was built in the mid 1800s by the Great Eastern Railway as a single track extension between Loughton and Ongar. Situated in rural Essex it was originally created to transport milk and other produce from Essex to London.

In The Epping Ongar Railway the author, Malcolm Batten, has produced a photographic album exploring the remarkable survival of this six mile stretch of railway line, which on closure in 1994 was an electrified section of the London Underground. He looks at the history, development and decline of the line and tells its story up to the re-opening in 2012. The next ten years of development, as the only heritage line running on a former part of the tube network, is then covered and photographs show the heritage steam and diesel hauled trains used on the line, along with a look at the vintage bus service run by the railway.

163 colour and 15 black & white photographs. 96 pages.
