Ryde (pop 32,000) has three stations, all with the word ‘Ryde’ in them.
Smallbrook station post code is Ryde PO33 4BE, it is in Ryde.Oh of course, and Smallbrook just on the edge, so pushing it you could say 4
Struggling with this a bit. If there are two on the Cambrian Coast and one was Arthog what are, or were, the other five?Arthog
Eight including two on the Cambrian Coast Line
Strangely, there is no station called 'Arthog', the station of that name was on the closed line towards Dolgellau
That must be the most stations per inhabitant, maybe?
Smallbrook station post code is Ryde PO33 4BE, it is in Ryde.
At 32,000 people Ryde has a 8,000 to 1 ratio, and there are plans to increase this to 5 stations once the new estate at Westridge cross is built.
On the West Highland line, after it diverges at Crianlarich. I think the gradients are quite steep, hence the names Upper Tyndrum and Tyndrum Lower.
Whilst hardly a small town, I've always found it rather odd that Worthing has West Worthing, Worthing and East Worthing stations all within 2 miles of each other on the same line. Always seems slight overkill. Then again there are 12 stations in 13 miles between Brighton and Goring. I realise it's a built up area but it does seem excessive for a two track railway with very few passing places connecting to Southampton and Portsmouth.
Acton (wiki says population 24k) has 7 stations.
Acton is hardly what I’d class as a small town...
The answer to that is obviously London!Acton might be the answer to "Which place has the most stations named from it?" - but that's a different question.
Yes but there is no station named just 'London'
I think Cyffordd Dyfi/Dovey Junction should win
One station, no residents!
Well, Heath Row, from which the airport derives its name, doesn't even have a population large enough to be classed as a village... so if we're looking for towns, then I don't think it counts. I can't even find a figure on its population.
Such as it was, anything left is pretty much underneath terminal 3 and its aircraft stands:The village of Heathrow was completely demolished when the airport was built, so I think we should rule this one out of the game as it no longer existed when the stations were built.
Clydebank (est. population of 25,970 as of 2018) has a total of five stations within it's boundaries: Dalmuir, Clydebank (of course), Singer (named after the former sewing machine factory it was built to serve), Drumry & Yoker. The last of these is a slightly odd one: it's a stone's throw from the West Dunbartonshire/Glasgow council boundary (sitting squarely in the former's territory) and considered part of Clydebank, with Yoker itself falling under Glasgow City Council control.
