Heddington Walk Railway Station platforms are empty, its departure boards blank, all trains having left the city during the evacuation.



Heddington Walk Railway Station is a small, but modern, train station located in the suburb of Dulston. Once a bustling commuter paradise the platforms are now silent, the citizens all gone, and the faint moans of zombies can be heard in the distance.

The original station was opened on May 15, 1976 by Malton Rail, who held the contract for all of Malton's railroad stations before the "Malton Incident". It served as one the three hub railway stations where the East-West Line and North-South Line meet. The original station was torn down in 1989 when it became apparent that it would not be large enough to accommodate all of the public transportation shoppers who visited Treweeke Mall. While the station itself is unmanned, it still retained its original waiting shelters for patrons. Automated ticket machines along the platform were used by travelers to purchase their train tickets.

This empty railroad station was once a part of the city's now extinct Malton Rail system.

Travelers though had limited options as to which station they wished to travel, as they could only ride in two directions. Those who wished to head west towards Rhodenbank would have to have taken the East-West Line train towards Gibb Plaza Railway Station. While those who wanted to head south into Pescodside took the North-South Line train to Muirhead Avenue Railway Station.

The present station was opened in 1991, as a stop on the new Purple Line, and closed in 2005.

Barricade Policy

This building must never be more than Very Strongly (VS+2) barricaded. This barricade level has been set forth in the Dulston Optimal Defense Diagram, a strategic barricade policy that is enforced by all member groups of the Dulston Alliance. These days Heddington Walk Railway Station serves a tactical role in Dulston as one of the few monitored "entry point" buildings for Treweeke Mall just to the south. As such, survivors are reminded to maintain the station's barricades at Very Strongly (VS+2), but never higher than that. In this way survivors with Free Running can exit the mall and still return through the train station, as the mall is almost always Extremely Heavily barricaded.
