London underground Central line Driver's eye view Woodford Epping Leytonstone

Description

Woodford to Leytonstone via Hainault
Epping to West Ruislip via central London


 the Woodford branch through the Roding Valley to Hainault and on to Leytonstone on board a 1992 stock train. then  the main Central Line that runs through the very heart of London. 

Epping, by contrast, can best be described as a rural town out in the Essex countryside. We join another 1992 stock train for the longest journey possible on one tube train, from there to West Ruislip in Middlesex. Our journey takes us through the open fields surrounding Theydon Bois before entering true suburbia. At Leyton we enter the first tunnel section before re-emerging at Stratford - now firmly on the world map as the site of the 2012 Olympic games. 

Now we stay in tunnel for the main route through Liverpool Street, the City of London, the West End and out to Shepherd's Bush in West London. 

Our train exits the tunnel section at White City on the wrong side due to an historical anomaly. Crossing back to left hand running we traverse North Acton Junction and head overland through Hanger Lane and Greenford (sporting semaphore signals) to the terminus at West Ruislip. 4 cameras in the cab capture the action as it happens. Additional lighting subtly enhances the tunnel sections to represent the realistic lighting conditions experienced by the train operator - the trains are controlled automatically in similar manner to the Victoria Line.

Rob Curling, brings us many of the relevant and fascinating facts of this early tube railway.

About Us

 

The Vale of Rheidol Railway (WelshRheilffordd Cwm Rheidol) is a 1ft 11 3/4 inches (603 mmnarrow gauge heritage railway that runs for 11 3?4 miles (18.9 km) between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge in the county of Ceredigion, Wales.

Until 
privatisation, it was the sole steam-operated line on the nationalised British Rail network, steam traction having ceased in 1968 on all other parts of the system. Unlike some other preserved railways in the United Kingdom, the Vale of Rheidol Railway has never closed, with the exception of wartime and has operated a service for tourists through its life. The railway celebrated its centenary in 2002. 

The Railway is a charity, meaning the income it generates goes back into the railway, to aid in restoration and running of the steam locomotives. Buying through our online giftshop enables you to get the product you want but also donate to the railway and keep it alive.
