Some millionaires are wealthier than others[edit]

re: Virginian_Railway#A_partnership:_The_idea_man_from_Ansted_meets_a_millionaire This sentence: "He was also a very wealthy millionaire."... just struck me as funny. Was Huttleston Rogers a multimillionaire perhaps? I'd strike very wealthy but that's just me. Anyone know how much he was worth at various points? ++Lar: t/c 15:57, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

You have a point. I'll see about changing that wording to avoid the redundancy. Vaoverland

Good article[edit]

I'm delisting this as a good article because of POV issues (for instance "In a classic story of business intrigue" and "Fortunately, Henry Rogers recovered his health") and crufty information about mailing lists. --NE2 01:37, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:S VGN System Map Dec 1954 large.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:S VGN System Map Dec 1954 large.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
