Site of Constable Burton station, 1989.
View eastward, towards Northallerton: ex-NER Wensleydale line, Northallerton - Hawes, thence ex-Midland on to Garsdale. The station was closed to passengers from 26/4/54 when the Wensleydale service was withdrawn, but freight continued, calling at Constable Burton until 14/10/57, until 27/4/64 when it ceased west of Redmire. The route has survived Northallerton - Redmire, for quarry traffic until 1982, then for conveying Army tanks etc. for Catterick Garrison, being maintained by the Ministry of Defence until 1992, when the line was sold to the heritage Wensleydale Railway Association. The latter formed an operating company in 2000 and currently is actively developing the line.
