40 years after it closed, a group of enthusiasts in 1992 formed a Company to recreate the Middy. They have rebuilt a station on the site of the Brockford and Wetheringsett railway station. this station used to served the villages of Wetheringsett and Brockford Green.The station was about six miles from Haughley and had just two small corrugated iron clad huts for its booking office and passengers waiting rooms.
The railway is today a heritage railway and a museum Brockford and Wetheringsett station that is run by a small, but dedicated band of volunteers whose aim is to open all the old light railway, but because it was a light railway little of it now remains.
