Despite featuring some early adverts for the Autumn Gala at the Epping to Ongar Railway featuring D8001, we have reluctantly had to decline due to ongoing rectification of a long list of minor faults following the generator refurbishment and power unit works. However our friend Michael Owen has offered to assist and provide 20142 for the event on the 16th to 18th September which features 55019 and 08683 as visiting locomotives. For more details visit the EOR website or see our events page.
Its been a frustrating few years, but hopefully the repairs will be completed to D8001 and it will be fully operational for preserved line running next year.
