Completely new and re-imagined; a magical experience is coming to the Epping Ongar Railway in 2023!

The Epping Ongar Lights Express is an incredible light show on and in a steam train, consisting of thousands of coloured LED lights and LED wristbands, creating a kaleidoscope of different colours and flashing patterns. The train looks amazing, inside and out!

Join the festive action on board and get in the party mood with a festive DJ mix of music the whole family will love. Each passenger will receive their own interactive LED wristband which is synchronised to the music, meaning you become part of the show!

Sing, dance and cheer on this magical journey, hosted by the legendary Voiceover Man - laugh with him (or at him!) and compete against each other in his on board game!
