Although passenger traffic ceased in 1954 there were occasional passenger trains between 1984 and 1988. 22 miles of track between Northallerton and Redmire on the line to Garsdale were retained to serve a limestone works at Redmire. When this traffic ceased in 1992, the line was upgraded and used by the Ministry of Defence with occasional military traffic serving Catterick Garrison.
The 17 mile section of track between Leeming Bar and Redmire was acquired by the Wensleydale Railway, with the section between Leyburn and Leeming Bar reopened on 4th July 2003, this was extended to Redmire from 1st August 2004. This is a community passenger service with 5 trains a day over the line with occasional military traffic serving Catterick Garrison. - att(http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/r/redmire/)
Redmire Station House is now owned and run by the 2nd Acomb Scout Group, York and protected under a Declaration of Trust with four Trustees.
Redmire funds are ring-fenced within the Scout Group Charity and managed by a subcommittee of members of the Scout Group and trustees.
Redmire is primarily available for Scouts, youth groups and other charities and we run a priority booking system for them. We also welcome other parties to use the facilities at other times.
Over its 50 years as a Scout Activity Centre, it has been visited by tens of thousands of children of varying abilities and backgrounds and other charitable organisations.
