The railway was part of a 10km stretch at the end of the Great Eastern, latterly LNER and London Central Line that runs through beautiful Essex Countryside. After LU suspended passenger services in 1994, the line was preserved as a heritage railway. Following years of neglect, the recent extensive infrastructure improvements and restoration work means EOR is now able to invite you to step back in time to enjoy the romance of heritage travel. The works have enabled us to increase the frequency and variety of trains, run steam and diesel locomotive hauled trains and ensure the long term future of the line.

All of this would not be possible without our enthusiastic and friendly team of volunteers, and there are many ways you can get involved, whether that is helping operate the trains, in the booking offices, retail and catering or being part of the restoration and maintenance gangs undertaking all manner of projects. There are work parties both on weekdays and weekends, and our friendly team is drawn from all ages and backgrounds (no prior railway experience is necessary) as we run services for the benefit of visitors, the local communities and economy
