^^L is TeX notation for character which is elsewhere named ctrl-L
or ^L.

Context seems to change the catcode of ^^L, that might be the problem.
It might help to execute \obeypages before you input eplain.tex
Or you might try to set the catcode this way
\catcode\^^L = 13
before inputing eplain.

This is good practice, I think.

Good luck,
