I can think of one that slots in at #4 on this list - Winnersh (7,939). Possibly the smallest settlement in the country to have more than one electrified station, although I am more than happy to be corrected on this. Remember also that Winnersh Triangle is relatively recent!St Budeaux: 11,267
Fishguard, 5,043, will beat Winnersh in a couple of months' time.I can think of one that slots in at #4 on this list - Winnersh (7,939).

I think if its inside the M25 then it shouldnt count. You can walk to the border with London proper from Denham in a few minutes.6548 for Denham, with its lovely Golf Club
Having just had a look at a map, they are clearly separate settlements.This as always comes down to the definition of population of an area. Tyndrum is postally FK20 and therefore comes under Crianlarich, the inclusion of which probably more than doubles the population as well as adding a third station.
Ah! The 2001 census when I was 1 of the 761. It's much bigger now as the village has grown a fair bit since 2001 and we may be loosing the Saltings station as the Park and Ride is to be moved to a larger site at St.Erth! The now request stop Lelant station is more central to the village than the Saltings station. Anyway as you said, the thread is about mainline rather than branch line stations. Maybe an idea for a new thread?Lelant and Lelant Saltings?
Population 761 in 2001
Doesn't beat Tyndrum (167) but I should think easily beats Kiveton.
Just realised the thread said 'mainline' stations, but who defines a 'mainline'? In that case what about Newark Castle and Northgate (25 376)?
Hartford in Cheshire is a fairly rural backwater with two rail stations. Hartford itself on the WCML and Greenbank on the Mid Cheshire Line. I doubt it comes close to "least populated", but it's hardly a population centre either.I did say 'mainline' in regards to it being a national rail station as opposed to metro. tramway, light rail. I should have been a bit more specific initially.
