Coopersale Halt

View through rear of class 117 diesel unit returning from Epping Forest to North Weald, having just crossed the bridge by the hamlet of Coopersale, on the Epping Ongar Railway, on 23rd February 2020. Strictly speaking, this location is Epping Forest since there has never been a Coopersale Halt. In the 1970s, when the line was still part of the LUL Central Line, there was much new residential development in Coopersale which led to a concerted campaign for LT to provide a station here but they turned deaf ears on this and nothing was ever provided. The EOR also had plans at one time to build a halt here but nothing has transpired so far.
