Services

Dunwic Mid station is the main railway station and transport hub in Dunwic, Myrcia. The station is served by Railweg Myrcia, Linbæn and Trambæn services.

History

The old St Alfred station closed in 2010 to allow for rebuilding. During that time Railweg Myrcia services terminated at Ethelfór station and Linbæn services at Sæterhriht Avenu, Nórdburh and Ebsforþ. The site was cleared, the RM lines were elevated to run through the station above ground level. A new station box was constructed under these lines through which Linbæn lines run, this included four platforms to allow for any future Linbæn extensions.

After five years of reconstruction the station re-opened in phases during 2015/16. The change of name from St Alfred station to Mid station was controversial with residents of the city. The Burhcounsil wanted the new name to reflect the station's importance in Dunwic's transport infrastructure but campaigners said that losing the name of St Alfred reflected an increasing secularisation in the city and did a disservice to the saint whose abbey once stood on the site.
