    The final stanzas of "Last Train" by Stanley Accrington.....

    And at Measurements Halt, the track has been lifted,
    The platform is all overgrown
    There's willow and scrub where the Delph Donkey ran
    And the valley has claimed back its own
    In the Saddleworth hills on a crisp autumn day
    A plume of smoke still lingers on
    But I'm dreaming out loud, sure it's only a cloud
    And the last train to Dobcross has gone.

    I'm confused on two occasions.

    Firstly, the stop on Railway Street in Leyburn is the same stop as I arrived on. Secondly, I cannot find a Beckstones Ford stop, but one simply called Gayle Village which has the same arrival as the one you posted?

    Can you clarify please? (and not just strike the post altogether) :)

    Beckstones Ford is what is mentioned in the "York" buses website that covers a wide area range.
