This photo was taken when Rylstone station was still partly intact (visible to the far left of the picture), and also when it retained a goods yard of sorts, seen in the foreground. A BR Standard 4 heads for Grassington with a rake of empty hoppers.

Rylstone level crossing in 1969. Taken from the remains of the station platform, visible in the foreground. Note the mixture of level crossing gates and protecting signals. No guesses for how the former came about...
