Page move undone.[edit]

Another editor moved this article to Western & Atlantic Railroad contrary to the naming conventions that we've worked out on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Trains. I've moved it back to the original page name to conform with the project standards. slambo 14:17, May 2, 2005 (UTC)

Okay, the page move was redone, and the To Do List (above) wasn't moved from Talk:Western and Atlantic Railroad/to do. I've left a message on the talk page for the user who did the move, I'm waiting for a response before reverting to the original name that matches the article naming standards as mentioned earlier. slambo 13:15, May 3, 2005 (UTC)
Further discussion of this issue is at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Trains#Wrong use of "and" when "&" is usually correct. slambo 20:50, May 4, 2005 (UTC)

I also saw the original move and agree that was not in comformity with the naming conventions that we've worked out on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Trains. I support the decision to move it back from whence it came. Vaoverland 21:24, May 4, 2005 (UTC)

Article merging[edit]

The information in the following three articles needs to be distributed among the articles properly. I'd do it, but somebody more familiar with the information could do a much better job.

Keep them separate, please, although you are correct that there is information that is redundant. Still, all three are distinct entities and should remain so. Thanks! Scott Mingus 17:01, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
