I like it!  A few comments about the ones based on Network Rail data:

   * There are some Class 5 trains in the list - they're empty passenger 
trains which don't carry passengers whilst they're moving between depots 
and sidings
   * Some stations don't always report departures due to the way the 
signalling is set up
   * There are trains for operator 'ZZ' in the list - those are 
non-passenger trains
   * Ships and buses are included, but they aren't subject to the 
performance regime and their arrivals/departures aren't reported
   * Officially, we define a delay as a change in lateness - and the 
industry investigates delays rather than lateness

I will forward this on to some people I work with in Network Rail who 
will be interested to see your work!

Let me know if I can be of help with the GB-side of this.
