The End Of the Line

April 18, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

According to Wikipedia, Project Ongar was the code name for 'the end of the line' for post war Royal Navy Torpedo development, according to the engineers working on it. The project ran from 1950 until the early 60's, when changes in propulsion from internal combustion to electric made the technology that was being developed redundant, the only thing that lived on was the guidance system.

Nothing liked the ten or more years 'Project Ongar' ran, It's been a three year saga getting one of our loco's to the Epping to Ongar Railway, but finally today D8001 has arrived at the railway after leaving Butterley last Thursday, we are pleased to confirm the loco will be there for the forthcoming diesel gala weekend and remain in regular operation on the railway until next Spring.

See below for link to the working timetable for this weekends gala -
