Report Date Title Report Source
02/07/1960 Barnard Castle-Kirkby Stephen-Penrith and Tebay Goods traffic (except for local pick-up Kirkby Stephen-Penrith) ceased after Sat. 2nd July, and the last goods train over the 'top' (i.e. Stainmoor summit) was hauled by 46422 an 46442 which worked from Kirkby Stephen to West Aukland and back. On 21st August only 46449, 46458 an 46470 were left on Kirkby Stephen shed which now has one duty left; in addition a standby engine is needed on Saturdays till the Blackpool trains finish. The diesel service to Penrith will continue in the Winter t.t. as it is understood that B.R. have to establish with the T.U.C.C. that the line is uneconomic now there is no goods traffic, before the line can be wholly closed (except for the Kirkby Stephen-Appleby section).
