What is the definition of a Major Scottish railway stations? --Stewart 20:18, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

I don't know now but a lot of criteria was drawn up for Template:Major UK railway stations. See Template talk:Major UK railway stations. Simply south 22:18, 1 July 2007 (UTC)
Unsure of the UK criteria could be used, as they have a very high definition of what is a 'Major' station - leving only about 3 Scottish stations. I would say stations with multiple (3 or more) platforms in use? There are hundreds of two platform stations in Scotland, but far less multiple platforms. Prestwick I see being an exception to that due to its links to the airport? 11:28, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
Talking of Prestwick, I thought its station was managed by Scotrail? --Dreamer84 12:19, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
Prestick Town station yes, but the Airport station refered to in the template is owned and operated by the Airport company, see First ScotRail. 13:11, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
I knew Prestwick Town was but didnt know Prestwick Airport wasn't managed by First. Will have to update that station's page. --Dreamer84 14:16, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Stranraer railway station[edit]

Is Stranraer really a major station? An anon IP is added it to the template, however there are probably other stations wheich are larger and busier, with more passengers and platforms which are not lists. --Stewart (talk | edits) 15:11, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
