Looks like you have come across the private narrow gauge collection of Ian Jolly. Opened in 1976 and has various gauges of rolling stock and a 1/4 mile of track. For the record - Mold railway station opened on 14 August 1849 as the terminus of a double-track line from the Chester and Holyhead Railway, starting at Saltney near Chester. It was joined in September 1869 by Mold and Denbigh Junction Railway. In January 1892 a line opened between Mold and Coed Talon, which was extended in 1898 to Brymbo. The external service ceased in 1950. Mold station closed for passengers in 1962, and closed completely on 4 May 1964. The site of the station has been occupied since the 1990s by a supermarket - probably explains why you didn't know it had a station.

This is a Motor Rail 'Simplex Loco', built by the Motor Rail Company (works no. 1944) and sold to the Flint Paper Mill, Oakenholt in December 1919 with a 40 hp petrol engine had been replaced in 1959 with a 40 hp diesel engine. In 1965 it was sold to the Synthite company, to shunt the sidings of their Alyn Works at Rhydymwyn - a former tinplate works - which was rail-served after the rest of the line was abandoned, Rail traffic ceased in 1983 and the line was lifted soon afterwards The loco was sold by 1986 to Mr Ian Jolly of Mold.

for anyone wanting to visit this one its far easiest visiting from here (53.177069, -3.176356) to the right of this persons driveway there's a little public path which is quite steep at points, alot closer and you have a little purpose made bridge over the Alyn.

It's a very interesting find, saw it on geograph so i had to make the visit last year.
