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.
Another view below shows the station at night.
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 has adjacent to it Foxburrow Yard. Below is two pictures of Foxburrow Junction station in January 2018, when the branch to Mistydale was fully restored.
I will occasionally Blog about Mistydale, but for the latest information, pictures and video, please visit Mistydale Model Railway
Mistydale model railway is also featured on the Rainham Rail Enthusiast YouTube page.
Many thanks for reading, I’ll Blog again soon.
