Leeming Bar Railway Station
Leeming Bar Railway Station
The station was opened by the York, Newcastle and Berwick Railway (a constituent company of the North Eastern Railway) in 1848 as the terminus of their branch from Northallerton. The line was then extended westwards to Leyburn by the Bedale and Leyburn Railway seven years later. It closed to passengers in April 1954 when the Northallerton to Hawes service fell victim to road competition, but reopened under Wensleydale Railway ownership in the spring of 2003. As well as the scheduled passenger service, the station also sees periodic train loads of military hardware travelling between Catterick Garrison and various destinations in the south of England via Northallerton and the ECML.

The Wensleydale Railway
The Wensleydale railway is a preserved railway in North Yorkshire. The line currently runs 22 miles (35 km) between Northallerton on the East Coast Main Line and Redmire. This makes the line the longest heritage railway in Great Britain. Occasional freight services and excursions travel the full length of the line, however regular passenger services currently only operate between Leeming Bar and Redmire, a distance of 16.5 miles (27 km). Formerly the line ran from Northallerton to Garsdale on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. However the track between Redmire and Garsdale was lifted and several bridges and viaducts were demolished in the past. (Wikipedia)
