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 (2018) usage figures.
Click on each station to see a time-series graph of usage.
The colour of each station indicates trend.

Light yellow indicates ~zero growth.
Blue indicates high levels of growth.
