The Epping Ongar Railway, which was once part of the London Underground Central Line, has announced that they will be welcoming GWR Pannier Tank L.92 for their upcoming Steam Gala.
L.92 is a former London Transport steam locomotive that was purchased in 1958 to work engineers trains up until 1969.
The locomotive was then sold to the Worcester Locomotive Society and has been operating on the South Devon Railway since 1993.
Taking place on the 11th and 12th September, L.92 will join in the fun at the Steam Gala, which will also see GWR Hall 4953 Pitchford Hall and visiting GWR 5600 No. 5619 hauling trains.
Also, L.92 will play an important role at the London Transport Gala from the 8th to the 1st October, which will hopefully see three London Transport liveried locomotives in action.
The Pannier Tank will be at the Epping Ongar Railway until the 2nd January 2022, which will mean it will haul other scheduled services and dining trains, including Santa Specials Light Fantastic Services and New Years Day Steam.
L.92 visits the Epping Ongar Railway thanks to the Worcester Locomotive Society and the South Devon Railway.
