Leeming Bar railway station

Leeming Bar railway station is the eastern rail passenger terminus of the Wensleydale Railway. Trains are timed to link in with Dales and District service buses to Northallerton to connect with the National Rail network.

Plans are for passenger trains to eventually continue through Leeming Bar and run into Northallerton railway station. The first phase of this involved re-opening Scruton station and commissioning a temporary structure at Northallerton West in 2014, but this section was closed again in August 2016 following a collision between a train and a car at a level crossing near Yafforth.[1] It is hoped to recommence services to Northallerton West at a future date once work to upgrade level crossing equipment is complete.[2]

Leeming Bar is also the location of the Wensleydale Railway's main depot where its increasing amount of rolling stock is stored and is visible from the A1.

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.[3] 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 summer of 2003.[4] 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 East Coast Main Line.[5]
