Syntax

{{Infobox GB station                     
 | name        = Crewe                   
 | manager     = [[Virgin Trains]]       
 | locale      = [[Crewe]]               
 | borough     = [[Crewe and Nantwich]]  
 | platforms   = 12                      
 }}
In each case, use a wikilink, piped where necessary in order to hide text like "Metropolitan Borough of ", " (district)", etc. Examples: |borough=[[Rutland]]; |borough=[[Bedford Borough|Bedford]]; |borough=[[Epping Forest District|Epping Forest]]; |borough=[[Highland (council area)|Highland]]; |borough=[[Bridgend County Borough|Bridgend]]

Optional fields

| image_name  = Crewe station platform12.jpg
| imagesize   = 265px

The width is automatically set to 265px unless 'imagesize' is specified. For a consistent appearance, |imagesize= should be omitted when the width/height ratio is between 1:1 and 2.65:1. For images whose width/height ratio is between 2.65:1 and 3:1, set |imagesize=x100px ; for images whose width/height ratio exceeds 3:1, set |imagesize=300px ; and for upright images (width/height ratio less than 1:1), set |imagesize=x265px .

| caption      = Crewe
| owner        = [[Network Rail]]
| code         = CRE
| symbol       = rail
| dft_category = B

Note: if you enter a station code, the template will automatically link to National Rail Enquiries Live Departure Board. The symbol parameter is for use by Operation SS to add a symbol to each article.

If 'dft_category' is specified and is a valid category, then the appropriate subcategory of Category:Railway stations by Department for Transport category will be automatically set.

Note: either the 'usage' or the 'lowusage' fields may be used, but not both sets. For 'usage', figures should be expressed in millions, whilst for 'lowusage', figures should be in units. These rules also apply to 'int' and 'lowint'.

| latitude    = 53.089
| longitude   = -2.437
| gridref     = SJ710547

Note: latitude must be present if longitude is present, and vice versa, and they should have the same number of decimal places (trailing zeroes are significant). Three decimal places gives an accuracy of 111 metres (364 ft), and four decimal places gives an accuracy of 11 metres (36 ft), so greater precision is unnecessary for something as large as a railway station.

Start dates

One of:

| start     = 2001
| starting  = 2014
| years     = {{Start date|1861}}  
| events    = Opened

Note: use |start= for stations already open, or |starting= for stations not yet open. The word "Opened" or "Opening" (respectively) will be inserted automatically.

Option fields for stations within a passenger transport executive area

| pte         = [[West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive|West Midlands]]   
| zone        = 1   

Note: This template should not be used on stations within the Transport for London area; use {{Infobox London station}} instead.

Option field for stations with Welsh/Gaelic/etc names

| other_name  = {{lang-cy|Caerdydd Canolog}}          

Use the relevant language link template for the language concerned. These include: {{lang-kw}} (Cornish); {{lang-ga}} (Irish); {{lang-gv}} (Manx); {{lang-gd}} (Scottish Gaelic); and {{lang-cy}} (Welsh).

Microformats

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
