Football Specials[edit]

Hey all, If your wondering the source of this statement, I have seen it repeatedly on journeys into Manchester, I have also found it here, and here also, though only a minor variation in the route, I believe it is still relavant to the route. Thanks DannyM 11:04, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Passenger stats[edit]

I've added the increase/decrease symbols as these are a common way of showing such movements in infoboxes - not just rail ones. The argument that not many other stations have them doesn't make sense - they have to be added sometime! DrFrench (talk) 22:43, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

If there was some sort of initiative from UKTrains then maybe but because you think so doesn't make it right. 22:46, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
Well I could argue that just because you don't think so, doesn't make that right either... but let's not get personal. In any event it's not a thing for UKTrains, it's all about getting information across in infoboxes. That's why you see these symbols used in a variety of infoboxes (e.g. companies showing profit & assets, etc). Some people consume information (especially raw data in different ways. When presented with a list of stats, the symbols help to show trends at-a-glance. DrFrench (talk) 22:53, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
Then why isn't there some taskforce or bot to add these wedges to all infoboxes? 22:58, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
I can't see how a bot could do it and I guess it doesn't really need a taskforce... it's just a case of adding them as you edit articles anyway (as I did to this one). Have a look at Template:Increase, you'll see how many articles use it—both those that are railway-related and those that are not. DrFrench (talk) 23:07, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
