In the back of my mind, yes.   Read about it at https://www.raildeliverygroup.com/uk-rail-industry/events/world-cup-of-stations.html

This year's World Cup of Stations will run on Twitter from 20 September to 15 October 2021, including a nominations phase, knock-out group stages, semi-finals and the final.

You can follow the action and vote for the station you want to win by following @raildeliverygrp or by searching for the hashtag #WorldCupOfStations.

and updated with results further down that page. St Ives made it (one of four) to the final.

And its cousins - Railway Day and Station Day
 
https://www.raildeliverygroup.com/uk-rail-industry/events/railway-day.html

Railway Day

Railway Day is our annual Twitter celebration of all the work our passenger and freight colleagues do to keep Britain's railway running - from those driving trains full of passengers or cargo to ticket office staff, control room operators and track maintenance engineers.

The Day is usually held in the middle of April, and is a partner activity to Stations Day (mid-October).

Railway Day is held entirely on Twitter, so everyone is welcome.

Yes. Stourbridge Junction's campaign was ably managed by George, the station cat.
