It must be almost a decade ago I added the Station Comparator on this website, and each year from then onwards I've added new ORR passenger data as it's come out.  Today, looking for some light relief from other things I have going on,  I have written a program to compare old and new stations lists.

* Both lists are based on three letter codes, so ANY, BPC, FAM, LSP, LON, SMI, WDF and perhaps others show up in "gone" but also in "added" (can you work  out their new codes??)
* Some station have been "lost" to Metrolink and DLR, and perhaps other networks
* Recent changes such as Angel Road closure have happened after the newer data

We have LOST (this data tells us) the following stations from the National Network:
ABR gone from Abercynon North
ANY gone from Anerley
BPC gone from Butlins Penychain
BRT gone from Barlaston
CNT gone from Canning Town
CUS gone from Custom House London
DKR gone from Derker
DNN gone from Dean Lane
FAM gone from Fambridge
FLS gone from Failsworth
GRM gone from Garston (Merseyside)
HOD gone from Hollinwood
KCM gone from Kings Cross Thameslink
LON gone from London Road Guildford
LSP gone from Liverpool South Parkway
MLR gone from Milnrow
NHY gone from New Hey
NTB gone from Norton Bridge
NWW gone from North Woolwich
OLM gone from Oldham Mumps
OLW gone from Oldham Werneth
SHA gone from Shaw and Crompton
SMI gone from Smitham
SVW gone from Silvertown
WDF gone from Woodham Ferrers
WED gone from Wedgwood
ZBB gone from Barbican
