A few local inhabitants have turned out to see the unusual sight of a passenger train visiting Ryburgh station in October 1980. The train (two Cravens sets comprising the F&DRS Central Norfolk Freight Lines railtour) has just drawn up at the crossing gates and will shortly pull into the platform. That will be the limit of its travel on this line, because the next section to Fakenham had been closed recently and was in the process of being dismantled. Less than a year later, Ryburgh station became a casualty itself when the adjacent maltings transferred all its goods to road.
