I thought the last formal legal station closure was Newhaven Marine (and Teeside Airport is "only" closed temporarily).

Last passenger call, though, 2006 ... I also wondered whether to list Norton Bridge, Barlaston, Wedgewood.

You can never put a Southern man down ;-).    Good call on Tunbridge Wells to Eridge, and on Coulsdon North. The Croydon stuff comes into the same basket as Shoreditch and Angel Road - how much of a closure and how much of an upgrade to an alternative?

British Steel Redcar is similar to IBM I think. Unused but not officially closed? Can’t find a date so far…

Norton Bridge was formally closed, but IIRC (if I recall/remember/read correctly) only a relatively short time ago in 2019,  long after the rail service stopped in 2004.

I'd agree with you on the 1997 closures for Tramlink, Graham.   Quite a bit of Elmers End - Sanderstead hasn't been reused for the trams, though, and of course, that was a much earlier closure.  I travelled the line once and visited Coombe Rd and Bingham Rd stations.  Haven't been through there for a while but I think the platform it used at Selsdon is still there.
