  • Ambleden Station

    Philip Harvey

    Issue 269 (2019)



    It was in MRJ 63 that Philip Harvey introduced us to Amberdale. Ambleden is the end of a 4mm scale line that winds itself through Amberdale; it runs through a continuous landscape passing two intermediate stations before arriving at the mill town of Wenley from where it runs 'off stage' to storage, representing the rest of the railway system. Very much in the tradition of the late John Ahern's Madder Valley, it may appear at odds with the timescale ethos of today but his observation and imagination has created a warm and comforting scene that captures the magic of a model railway, a goal we all share.
