Interactive LED wristbands will synchronise with the music, creating a display of colors and flashing patterns on the journey.

The Epping Ongar Lights Express offers an hour-long journey between North Weald and Ongar, and it's available on selected dates from November through January of next year.

The railway, which dates back to 1865, operates on a portion of the former London Underground Central Line, running from Ongar to Epping Forest via North Weald.

The Life Express will not be stopping at North Weald and will go to and from Ongar.

Epping Ongar Railway general manager George Saville added: "The Epping Ongar Lights Express is a spectacular and unique event.

“It's a real crowd-pleaser, and everyone, from little kids to grandparents, loves seeing our beautiful heritage trains transformed into illuminated magical trains."

For those seeking a spookier adventure this October, the railway is running a series of Fright Week Halloween train trips aboard its ghost train, complete with a manic magician and prizes for the spookiest costumes.

Tickets cost £20 and can be bought at eorailway.co.uk
