Stations of this kind have often grown or shrunk according to the amount of traffic they handle and the range and quality of services they offer passengers. In some cases the buildings are of different periods; in others, a clean sweep has been made and a basic shelter and simple platform are all that remain, often in connection with redevelopment of disused railway land or the need to provide car parking.

The smallest stations did not necessarily have any buildings.

Such 'minimum' stations were often called halts, many of which were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s in gaps between longer-established stations.
