The village of Maron is divided into two areas. The modern village has grown up around the station at the summit of Gordon's Hill, while older buildings are built onto the steep hillside in terraces. In the CGI Series, it is where the Ulfstead Branch Line splits from the main line.
The station is a compulsory stop for all "down", unfitted or loosely-coupled goods to "pin down" brakes. Bankers, after assisting "up" trains, reverse over the points at the station onto the "down" line for the run back to Wellsworth.
In the television series, the station has seen many changes to its architecture, the most notable of which being in the sixth season, when the platforms and lines became curved instead of straight.
Since the sixth season, Maron has appeared in every season except for the ninth.
To the north of Maron is Boulder Quarry, which has long since been closed down.
