Very interesting ... I wonder what the trend is. Did you add passenger number across all those stations and see what the year on year change was on those totals?   Would that be the same percentage change on the top 20 stations and the bottom 20 / is there any shift from smaller to larger stations or vice versa?   Sorry about all the questions - stats intrigue me and ORR stations stats day is like Christmas Day!

Hopefully main line figures will climb next year on the back of the increased services in May 2019.

Thanks Pb.  I'm not sure about "Official" but, for what's it's worth, I think there's not very much to see here.  The big increases of recent years have largely been maintained and it's a very slight fall back with 52k of the 92k fall being accounted for by Plymouth and Truro.  Not surprised there's been a bit of a fall back on the Maritime Line as it did suffer periods of unreliability in 18/19 (this financial year too) and the Penryn derailment happened in these figures.

I think The Tall Controller is right and I'd put it stronger than "hopefully" - main line figures will climb because of the improved services introduced in May and then fully in Dec 19 and I think that we'll see branch line figures rise too because of the increased number of connections.  St Ives and St Erth will doubtless see a very big increase - Carbis Bay should do well too - off the back of St Erth Park & Ride opening in June 19 and because all trains now call at Carbis Bay.  Journey figures on the St Ives Bay Line have seen a 23.6% increase since April, an extra 109,000 journeys (this is to mid Nov, the latest figures I have).

If we don't see increases across Cornwall and Plymouth too in the figures for the current year, that will be quite a surprise but, as long as things carry on as they appear to have done so far, with reliability being pretty good (touch wood), that shouldn't happen.
