Great pics, can't get over how the trees have grown round Ongar station. I used to live in Shelley, moving to Fyfield in 1962. I used Ongar station to go on spotting trips in the late 50's/early-mid 60's, and would have to go as far as Acton North on the underground to see the nearest exGW steam. I was a member of the Ongar & District MRC in the mid 70's, and we built a good layout of the line from Ongar to Blake Hall. One question, are the bridge shots at Pensons Lane, I haven't been there since the end of BR steam on the branch in 1956 :) .

Cheers,

Not sure about the name of the lane but the bridge I believe is called Marconi bridge situated just outside of North Weald from the Ongar direction.

Thanks, but not the bridge I was thinking of, Pensons Lane was the first over bridge out of Ongar, Marconi Bridge as you say was just to the east of North Weald, and originally was the service road to the huge radio masts that used to stand in that area.
