D5343 North Weald 24 September 2017

D5343 arrives at North Weald station on Sunday 24 September 2017 with the 2E12 12:08 Epping Forest to Ongar service, during the Epping Ongar Railway's Diesel Gala. Class 117/121 hybrid DMU 51384 & 56287 waits in the opposite platform, ready to work the 2E13 12:20 service to Epping Forest. This is my first visit to this location as a preserved railway. The last time I was here it was a very strange London Underground backwater, with just a morning and evening peak service.
