The office of road and rail will be publishing their station use stats (via their web site) on Wednesday 6th December.   

http://orr.gov.uk/statistics/release-schedule

Although there are many special cases and oddities in these figures (largely born out by special case and oddities in the ticketing system), they provide a very useful if belated year on year comparison on a station by station basis.  A time of these figures for each year is available on this site via the "Station Comparator" link at the top of every forum page, and I would hope to add the new data within 24 hours of it being published.

Just picked up on the latest Estimates of Station Usage figures for the Cotswold Line. Some interesting numbers. Possibly Oxford Parkway is having an effect. Hanborough and Charlbury have both seen big drops. Hanborough down from 271K to 239K and Charlbury 328K to 295K. Kingham is pretty much static whilst Evesham and Moreton-in-Marsh have seen small increases.

[edited to clarify comments related to Cotswold Line services as post has been moved to main station usage thread]

Here are the UK top 100 in growth from last year, but note that my list does not include stations opened since I started doing this a few years back (Christmas project!).   I have also removed stations with less than 10k passengers - leaving me with 2271 records.

Woman with cat?

No spaces and capitalise the W and C.

Yes.

Name of the computer I'm working on today.   Our systems are names after Wizard of Oz characters.   End titles include "Woman With Cat" ... and that was the name chosen.   I need to re-watch the film to see where she appears, but too busy today!

Finally in this series, I have updated the "Station Comparator" that's at the top of the pages - or link in to an example:

In your table, gleaned from the latest figures,  I think there's possibly a group of NW stations that were impacted by a fairly long route closure while they rebuilt Farnworth tunnel.   Possibly not 'real' growth. 

No criticism intended though, it would be very difficult for you to keep abreast of everything across the whole country.

There are all sorts of issues with the data when you start asking "why?" ... and I've intentionally not started to look at distortions this year across all the stations.    I have taken a look at the Melksham figure, compared it to the estimates I had, compared it to how I think we're doing this year, and factored into my historic series the ticketing abnormalities we had in the last decade.

Appreciate the comments about the North West area .... looking at the services as it develops over years, that stuff will even out.

Coombe junction a 10 times increase...
Remove the crowd gainer day still a four times increase.

I can guess why, all the enthusiasts were using it to see the moorswater workings as the scheduled freight working was just after a coombe service! (And me, about 20 journeys)

Just picked up on the latest Estimates of Station Usage figures for the Cotswold Line. Some interesting numbers. Possibly Oxford Parkway is having an effect. Hanborough and Charlbury have both seen big drops. Hanborough down from 271K to 239K and Charlbury 328K to 295K.

Very interesting. I suspect this is the double whammy of Oxford Parkway opening and GWR imposing more off-peak ticket restrictions on the Cotswold Line. Anecdotally I've been surprised how many Charlbury residents have started using Oxford Parkway for much or all of their London travel.

Also the swap-over between Bicester North (huge drop) and Village (significant gain)
