    FYI Epsom Downs changed in May, gets a half hourly service all day, even on Sundays.

    I wasn't aware it used to have 9 platforms. That seems pretty excessive for a terminus in the middle of nowhere built to serve a racecourse! IIRC it was down to one before it was closed and rebuilt closer to Sutton. I remember going there when there were four platforms but only one road.

    Some platforms were entirely grassed over just for race days.

    Ambergate has gone from 6 to 1.

    Uttoxeter had quite a few and only now has two.

    I think you'll find Sudbury and Harrow Road and Sudbury Hill Harrow can both comfortably beat Epsom Downs on that score ;)

    Aberdeen has lost a fair amount. I believe only platforms 3-7 are used when once there were 13.

    If we're including closed stations, I think the record is Blackpool Central, 17 to 0.
