For several years, Hopton had a static Camping coach in a siding. It was used as accommodation for holiday makers. In the 1960s the station was destaffed and the line was reduced from double track to single track.
After closure the station was demolished, the embankments and infrastructure removed and the site redeveloped with housing leaving no trace of the railways existence except the road which served the station is still called Station Road.
