Its idyllic rural setting, dominated by the viaduct, the station itself cut out of the steep hillside, the variety of locomotives which worked the line, the particular difficulties of its single-line working and attendant signalling arrangements all contributed to this character.

This book provides a detailed account of Midfords role in the S&Ds history, from the predecessor…
