Thomas, but not the newer CGI shiat, the model train version.

I wonder if they would let me build a little private siding there. I've always wanted a private railroad car and maybe I could afford one if it was narrow gauge.

Bullshiat. You can't build houses on 'em.

Follow through the Telegraph article, and you find that the house is a decent hike from the tracks.  The halt is circled, and the house is at lower right.

Shane?

Not Shana, not Shayna, not Shaniqua, not Sionara? But just Shane?

Would you prefer a more Honey Boo Boo setup? ;)

£425,000 seems pretty cheap for a place like that.

You know who else had their own train station?

My house is just a few blocks from the Capital Subdivision line and if I were any closer, the train horns would be a serious bother. That "decent hike" looks just right to me.

One toke over the line.

Does it have wheels? Cause wheels make a home more homey.

Dante Stephenson of 'Dante's Down The Hatch' in Underground Atlanta then Buckhead had a private siding. Lived in the rail car for some years.

Somebody forgot to look at the scale. The house-like objects at left are caravans, which throws off your sense of proportion if you think they're houses.

That "decent hike" is a 300-meter stroll across the fields as the crow flies. If it gets muddy, you can bump that up to a half-mile, and stay on the road the whole way.

Totally cool, if I were thinking about moving to Wales.  I'm not, so it's a little less cool.  But, it's a comfort to know the hustle bustle of the megatropolis of Abergynolwyn is just down the line from somewhere.

I expected it to be a drug house on the border of mexico with an underground railway-

An old rail line runs along the edge of my suburban neighborhood.  It was actually kind of a pain in the ass until quite recently.

It used to run to a bridge back in the day, but the bridge was sold for scrap in the sixties.  It was used as a siding in the seventies.  Then no one used it for 35 years.  Trees grew up between the ties and would fall on houses and power lines every so often.  Homeless people occasionally set up shop there.  Kids used to light fires and drink beer.  The railroad that owned it got purchased and repurchased and repurchased -- if you wanted to file an insurance claim, there wasn't even a phone number you could call.

So this one local guy got pissed off and started clearing it with a chainsaw and setting mulch down on the track bed.  It's now a fantastic (but unofficial) linear park.

The railroad?  Once they got wind of it, they put up "no trespassing" signs and tried to get the town to put a stop to it. Too late.  We already figured out that they weren't going to spend a nickle to fence it off.

The town even offered to buy it, but they would only let it go for $2 mil.  Sorry, your derelict siding isn't worth that much.  Hope your insurance has an "attractive nuisance" clause.

My grandparents lived across the tracks from a train station, but passenger service stopped around the 1970s.  I went once by train and had to get a car ride the last 10 miles.
I suppose they weren't rich enough to buy me a private train and build me a siding.

The five-bedroom stone house, is on the market for £425,000 and features a 'halt', where the residents can flag down passing trains on the Talyllyn steam railway, which runs between Abergynolwyn and the seaside village of Tywyn.

Ah Cymru, where the gauges are smaller than the place-names.

Railroad halts are cool and all, but I'd prefer living across the street from a brewery, and one of the best of the Pacific NW to boot.
