These pages are a full listing of railway stations on Britain's national network post-privatisation, together with that station's Engineer's Line Reference, mileage, owner and post-privatisation operator. For the latter, London Underground is shown as a station operator from 1994 even though it, of course, may have operated them for many years before that. CRS codes can be found on these pages. The closed stations listed are those appearing in certain official publications or closed since privatisation. Names given are those used on the National Rail Enquiries system and can differ from those carried on signs. There are some anomalies and differences; such differences are shown where possible in each entry. There is a wide variety of signs displayed at stations with much ancillary text. This listing gives text as given on the main sign (ignoring any supplementary signs advertising local attractions). National Rail gives some stations as being 'for... [somewhere]' so all known examples are given here. 'Alight for...' or 'change for...' are not considered part of the name for these purposes. Bilingual translations are shown on separate pages and are excluded here.

All stations are open and are owned by Network Rail Infrastructure (and, where dates are appropriate, previously Railtrack) unless stated otherwise. From 28 March 2020, the Welsh 'core valley lines' transfered to Transport for Wales ownership, which leases the network to Amey Keolis Infrastructure/Seilwaith Amey Keolis Limited to fulfil its obligations on its behalf. The TOC will further lease the stations from the network operator.

Station owner and operator change dates are shown; click the appropriate entry to expand historical data. For stations opened or closed after privatisation, dates are given for first or last trains, respectively. Note that effective dates are often different to the dates given on licences, which give the dates from or until which the operator is permitted to carry out an activity. Operators are given as the legal name; individual brands can be derived from the franchise page.

Mick Parker has kindly supplied global positioning data, presented here in the form degrees longitude/degrees latitude. In addition, Andrew Laing has kindly supplied Ordnance Survey grid reference data. An interactive map can be found here, courtesy Chris Harry. Stations are shown graphically and can be filtered according to facility operator; hover for information.
