More information

Background information:
Station Heistraat is rather a stop then a station. This has everything to do with the small size of the facilities such as the building and platforms.
Stops like this were built around 1900 near the smaller villages. In those days it was customary to build the station/stop outside the village. Larger cities are now grown around the station, but in the villages growth is not happening. That’s why many stops are still on the edge of the village, or completely free in the rural area. Partly for this reason Heistraat station is ideal for a layout with modest dimensions.

Architectural details:
Station Heistraat is modeled from Station Arkel, a small town near Gorinchem. Arkel Station was built in 1883 and features brick masonry and crossrooftiles . Although the function of the station building has been changed into an office, its original shape has not been changed, except for the western end wall.
The western end wall iss provided with a layer of white plaster in the '60s. This is also reflected in the Markenburg model.
Furthermore, the door- and windowframes are executed in two colors, namely white and anthracite. That also appears in the model.
