wording[edit]

I changed the wording on the template to "regional railways" from "class 2 railways". I think this wording suits the current contents of the template better. There are currently over 50 shortlines in Canada, none of which I can find an article for. I doubt anyone's going to be adding a reasonably complete list of them to this template anytime soon. Even if it did, I don't see it being useful navigation-wise.

If someone does want to add all Canadian shortlines to the template, I have no problem with changing the wording back.

TH&B[edit]

It seems wrong to label the TH&B as a short line, as it was owned by two huge systems. But I can't figure out where else it could go. Any ideas? --SPUI (talk) 04:40, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

US[edit]

Is it not odd that there are US railways in this? The ones I noticed were in the fallen flags section, such as PC - Penn Central. naturalnumber (talk) 17:17, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Penn Central operated the Canada Southern Railway and St. Lawrence and Adirondack Railway. The latter is now operated by CSX. --NE2 12:45, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

How is this organized?[edit]

A lot of these, such as the WPY, are certainly not regionals, and there are too many former railroads to include them all in the list. How about just restricting it to current railways? --NE2 12:45, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Hmmm...[edit]

Why is St. Lawrence & Atlantic listed as a fallen flag? It's still in operation. Why is Pan Am listed as a shortline when it's a regional? –BMRR (talk) 00:53, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
