Where the railway went after Ilkley station

In January I posted two photographs of Ilkley station that I took back in 1980 - here and here to be precise.

They showed the hole in the back wall of the station where the line used to continue to Skipton.

Yesterday I came across a 1956 film of Wharfedale.

The still above is taken from it and shows the railway leaving Ilkley station on a bridge over The Grove to continue on its way.

If you click on it you can view the whole film on the British Film Institute site.

The red buses will be West Yorkshire - but whose are the green ones in the distance?

They look blue and cream to me not green. If that is the case might be (Samuel?) Ledgard's.
