Mistydale Model Railway – an overview

Mistydale model railway is a fictitious static model railway, with heritage and modern traction.  At the heart of the model has always been ‘Mistydale station’, a Heritage line connected to the mainline.  153 DMUs service the railway from the mainline via Foxburrow Junction Station in the nearby town of Foxburrow.

Below is a picture across to Mistydale Station, with a 153 DMU in Platform 1 and the station vehicle park featuring vintage vehicles, play area with tea room.

After trains leave Mistydale, they enter the heritage line passing through Merlin Halt

The train then either returns back through the countryside back to Mistydale, or can access the mainline via Mistydale North Junction to the mainline loop.  Here Barleycorn Depot can be found

After a small countryside journey, trains can access the line through to Foxburrow Junction Station, which will eventually have adjacent to it Foxburrow Yard, which is due for construction in January 2019.  Below is two pictures of Foxburrow Junction station in January 2018, when the branch to Mistydale was fully restored.

I am a railway enthusiast based in Rainham, Kent. I enjoy mainly modern traction, however the history of rail, especially in places I visit, also interests me. I also have a static model railway, Mistydale, which has its own Facebook page. Thanks for visiting.
