The CVR was nominally independent, but was in reality controlled by the Glasgow and South Western Railway. The line was closed to passengers on 3 May 1943, during WW2 and to freight on 4 July 1949, and the track lifted in 1953. 1947 is also quoted as a date of complete closure.
Trains were controlled by a 'lock and block' system whereby the trains operated treadles on the single line to interact with the block instruments.
