Usage

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

Optionally a second parameter can be supplied to distinguish between identically named stations in different locations. (With respect to the UK, this is typically the county level administrative division.)

The template can be abbreviated as {{rws}} (for Railway Station).

For example:

{{stnlnk|Wolverhampton}} expands to [[Wolverhampton railway station|Wolverhampton]].

{{stnlnk|Bramley|Hampshire}} expands to [[Bramley (Hampshire) railway station|Bramley]].

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 Peterborough serves the city of Peterborough.

Almost all British stations follow the link form of terminating with "railway station".
