Usage[edit]

This template expands a name to link to the appropriate Amtrak station article, without displaying "(Amtrak station)".

The template can be abbreviated as {{amtk}} (for Amtrak station).

Including the optional second argument will add a State name.

For example:

{{Amtrak|Baltimore}} expands to [[Baltimore (Amtrak station)|Baltimore]], and
{{amtk|Ashland|Virginia}} expands to [[Ashland, Virginia (Amtrak station)|Ashland]].

Discretion should be used on whether to name the place itself or the station that serves it. In railway articles it is generally preferred to use the station unless specifically talking about the place, for example that Florence serves the town of Florence.

Many Amtrak stations now follow the link form of terminating with "(Amtrak station)".
