This page contains my visualisation of railway station usage in Great Britain.

Follow the links below for two maps showing the trends in railway station usage in the UK. Data source: ORR

Both maps can be zoomed and dragged.
Hover cursor over station to get current (2019) usage figures.
Click on each station to see a time-series graph of usage.
The colour of each station indicates trend.
Yellow/orange/red indicate (increasing) negative growth.
White indicates ~zero growth.
Light blue / dark blue indicates (increasing) positive growth.

Map 1: 'Long term' trend 1998 - 2019

Nearly all stations saw long-term growth 1998 - 2019, but noticeable areas of long term decline (orange and red) include:

Skegness line
Barton-on-Humber line

Map 2: 'Recent' trend 2015 - 2019

Stations in conurbations (e.g. Birmingham, Manchester) have seen strong recent growth 2015 - 2019 (blue), but growth has slowed over much of the country.
