Couple passing suggestions[edit]

Got a couple suggestions for the article before the reviewer starts, since I have experience in the area. Racepacket, you might want to expand the lead with some history details. Also you might want to source the 2009 Boardings. You might want to add platform design and other stuff (accessibility, ticket machines, etc) to the table.Mitch32(Erie Railroad Information Hog) 15:33, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Also, you might want to move the future section above the station listing.Mitch32(Erie Railroad Information Hog) 15:43, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
The 2009 Boardings are sourced to fn 19. If the table is a problem, I have no objection to removing it. Each station on the line has its own article describing the station's details. Racepacket (talk) 18:17, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
Problem? I think the table is too small. I think you need to expand it a bit more.Mitch32(Erie Railroad Information Hog) 02:17, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
