Usage[edit]

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

For example:

{{Tubestation|Amersham}} expands to: [[Amersham tube station|Amersham]].

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 Amersham serves the town of Amersham.

Almost all London Underground stations follow the link form of terminating with "tube station".

The template can be abbreviated as {{LUS}} (for London Underground Station).

See also[edit]
