Mold station closed to passengers on 30 April 1962 and to freight on 5 May 1964. The line itself stayed open for freight for longer, operating to a chemical factory north of the station and beyond to a government installation at Rhydymwyn.

The last freight trains to run through Mold operated in March 1983. These photos were taken in 1985 when the tracks were still in situ, and were lifted in the summer of the same year, The station site was redeveloped as a supermatrket in the 1990s.
