A heritage railway will bring back its Christmas train with a discount for emergency workers.

The Epping Ongar Railway will start running its Lights Train on 18 November from Ongar to North Weald.

The show has been revamped following feedback, but fares have been frozen at 2021 prices.

NHS, Police, and Fire and Rescue services have been provided a special 15% discount.

General manager Dean Walton said: “Many of us are suffering from increased food and energy prices but people still want to go out – especially at Christmas time.

“This is our small way of remembering the dedicated public service that doctors, nurses, police and firefighters and others in the NHS and emergency services provide day in day out.”
