The North Weald & District Miniature Railway started life as the Epping Ongar Miniature Railway Group, unable to establish a permanent home on the heritage railway, we started looking for an alternative location to lay down tracks.
Blue Diamond Garden Centers have offered us a home at their Harlow garden center, which is situated next to North Weald airfield near the M11/A414 junction.
We hope to have a shipping containing, which will form our station building/workshops delivered at by the end of May 2019, and we will then move on laying our permanent track work shortly thereafter.
The plan below shows our anticipated initial circuit, which comes out at just under a quarter of a mile in length.
We hope to start running trains on some portable/temporary track work soon, to raise the profile of the railway and generate some much needed income whilst work the permanent track work is underway.
