An imaginary history - south of Oswestry a tramway ran four mile from a junction at Weston via Morda, Coed-y-Go, Trefonen to Ty-isa passing all the collieries of the Morda Coalfield. In the eighteen-nineties the tramway was upgraded to a Light Railway creating a minor Welsh Borders line. Costs were kept to a minimum with the station building an old coach and the good shed an old van body. Unfortunately about the time of the upgrade the Morda Coalfield started a rapid decline leaving the light railway rather lightly trafficked, it was therefore a relief when the London Midland Scottish Railway took control in 1923.  

A passenger train from Oswestry arrives at Ty-isa and runs round.
