The train services left in 1982 were those to Silverhill, Sutton, Bentinck, Pye Hill and either clipstone or sometimes Rufford as per traffic requirements. Gone were the trips to New Hucknall Colliery and Ballast Tip along with Pleasley Colliery nad those of the 1960's to Alfreton, Morton and Blackwell etc. Interesting that Westhouses men were serving Clipstone via the Midland Railway's line from Mansfield South Junction. For all of Toton's might and size, pre 1990, few if any of their drivers were permitted past Pye Bridge Junction. Westhouses men worked Bentinck and the Midland line to Clipstone / Rufford, whilst all the other collieries on the Robin Hood line were Shirebrook's, except for the occasional trip from Barrow Hill to Creswell and from Worksop to Steetly Colliery. The Kirkby Summit Metal Box traffic did however go to Toton after previously being a Nottingham depot job and this eventually saw Toton make further gains on the line, starting with Westhouses' trips to Clipstone and Rufford Collieries and ultimjately right onto the ex LD&EC after the closure as a signing on point of Shirebrook depot in 1991.
