Tallarn Green Halt
is a temporary rebuilt of Tadworth Green for the March 2016 exhibition


Tallarn Green is a Halt on the Wych Brook Valley Line.
I have assumed that the proposed railway from Rhyl to Wolverhampton was built between 1845 & 1855, absorbed into the London North Western Railway (LNWR) and lead to the construction of branches round Wrexham, capital of the North Wales Marches. In 1923 the LNWR was merged into the London Midland Scottish Railway.
The earliest branches would have been to Llangollen and Wrexham. 1862 would see a line via Rhos-berse to Nant in the Clywedog Valley simultaneously a branch would have been built into the Black Valley to terminate at the mining and manufacturing village of Esclusham. In 1882 Black Valley would be extend to Wynnstay Park and the same year would see a steeply graded branch built into the Moss Valley.
The youngest of the lines the Wych Brook Valley opening in 1895 as a cross-country line extending the Wrexham Branch to Whitchurch to give a more direct link to Crewe and Manchester. Through & local passenger & goods trains run over the Wych Brook Valley and are used by Crewe Works as running in turns. The time period is the late 1930’s with operation by LMS stock.
