A small team of volunteers who help run the big engines also own and operate a number of 7¼ inch gauge locomotives and ride on carriages.

Although a separate organisation, they work together to put on miniature steam rides when the big ones are also running. So visitors can sit in a carriage for some trips, and on top of a smaller carriage for others.

The Epping Ongar Miniature Railway was formed last year when then acquired their Stafford locomotive.

Planned operating dates for Miniature Railway, at either Ongar or North Weald station. Rides on the miniature railway are a separate charge from the big railway.
