The Lavant line had become a freight only line running  over the old Midhust branch. Freight services to Cocking and Singleton were withdrawn on 28 August 1953 but Lavant lasted until closed to general goods on 3 August 1968 and sugar beet traffic in January 1970.

The line was cut back before Lavant station to serve gravel workings from 1972 but this was in turn withdrawn finally in 1991
