Manchester and Milford Railway Ysbyty Ystwyth Pontrhydygroes Cwmystwyth Llangurig


To differentiate Pontrhydygroes from Ysbyty Ystwyth the track plan is mirrored and simplified. The station siding isn't long enough to allow the kick back siding to be shunted so it has been removed. An alternative would be to leave the kick back siding with accesses by a none working point then use the siding to display those pretty but poorly running wagons we all seem to end up with. The cattle pens have been moved to make things a bit different. Otherwise facilities are standard and I would hope to add a coal merchant. The shop would be Merlin Cheeses and the low relief industry A. E. Refrigeration's parts department both are local firms. A challenge would be what to do with the station end of the sawmill siding. If possible I'd like to run it across the board joint and provide an end loading dock or a cut down buffer I saw in a bay at Princess Risborough eons ago. The signal cabin is really at the wrong end of the station but can't be moved - hopefully there's a prototype.
