This page is about GNR N2 1744 at the The Epping and Ongar Railway

Today  names like East Coast, East Midland Trains GBRF and Virgin Trains are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not always mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More photos!
