The closure notice has been posted, for the goods sidings at Bedale and Leyburn and is seen here in the last week before withdrawal in 1982. Although Leyburn yard was empty on this date that at Bedale had a considerable amount of traffic even in its last week See image 19393. Thankfully the line itself remained open for Redmire limestone (and military) traffic long enough to take it into the preservation era as the Wensleydale Railway.
