This is a sandbox for the simpler station layout templates. More complex templates are also being developed:

Layouts[edit]

(copied from User:Vcohen/Templates for station layouts)

Description[edit]

Here are templates for station layouts.

The icon files are in Category:Icons for station layouts

The templates are in Category:Station layout templates

To do:

  • create documentation

File names[edit]

Icon names: SLicon VT A1.png

  • SLicon is like BSicon (Station Layout)
  • V may be:
  • Vertical
  • Horizontal
  • T may be:
  • Track
  • P1 = platform part with edge leftwards (for V) or upwards (for H)
  • P2 = platform part with edge rightwards (for V) or downwards (for H)

(for side platforms use P1 or P2 only, for island platforms use both together)

  • A may be:
  • for Tracks with something on the end = 28
  • Arrow
  • Bar
  • AB
  • Z = long dashes
  • AZ
  • Solid
  • Dashed
  • for Tracks without anything on the end = 2
  • Narrow space (use twice to create wide space)
  • for Platforms (1 or 2) = 24
  • Solid
  • Dashed
  • Z = long dashes
  • 1 may be:
  • 1 = first element (upper for V, left for H)
  • 2 = vice versa

(not relevant for Tracks without anything on the end)

Usage[edit]

For a station
having two levels
the usage is:

  • SL top
  • SL head
  • SL row
  • ...
  • SL row
  • SL sep
  • SL head
  • SL row
  • ...
  • SL row
  • SL bottom

For a station
having one level
the usage is:

  • SL top
  • SL row
  • ...
  • SL row
  • SL bottom

The rules are:

  1. SL top and
    SL bottom
    must be present
    before all
    and after all.
  2. SL sep must be
    present between
    the levels of
    a bi-level station.
  3. SL head must be
    present before
    each level of
    a bi-level station.
  4. SL row is used
    several times
    to draw tracks
    and platforms.
  5. All templates
    in the category
    not listed above
    are for internal
    use only.

The first parameter of each template is V or H (vertical or horizontal).

The second parameter is:

  • for SL top and SL bottom - the number of station levels (1 or 2)
  • for SL head - the level title:
    • U - Upper level
    • L - Lower level
  • for SL row - the type of the row:
    • T - track
    • P1 - platform part with edge leftwards (for V) or upwards (for H)
    • P2 - platform part with edge rightwards (for V) or downwards (for H)
  • for SL multi - width measured in track widths (may be a fractional number);
    SL multi replaces SL row when a certain width is needed
    without images of tracks and platforms
  • for SL sep - no second parameter

The other parameters of SL row:

  • the third and fourth parameters are the line types:
    • S - a simple solid line (for both tracks and platforms)
    • D - a dashed line (for both tracks and platforms, meaning unusable
      track (e.g. disconnected, without third rail etc.) or platform not in use)
    • Z - long dashes (for both tracks platforms, meaning seldom used)
    • A - arrow (for tracks, meaning trains movement direction;
      put arrows on both ends for bi-directional tracks)
    • B - bar (for tracks, meaning terminal for all trains)
    • AB - arrow and bar together (for tracks)
    • AZ - arrow and long dashes together (for tracks)
    • N (for tracks; for the third parameter only; the fourth one must
      be omitted) - narrow space between tracks or platforms
      (e.g. removed track)
  • the fifth parameter is the text next to the track:
    • E - express track
    • L - local track
  • the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth parameters
    are portions of free HTML (typically route bullets)

Some of these templates support named parameters:

  • size - for SL top, SL head, SL row, SL multi,
    and SL sep:
    • I - size for infobox
    • T - size for thumbnail
    • G - size for gallery
  • debug - for all templates except SL bottom:
    • B - drawing tables and divs with a border
  • style - for SL top - a CSS style, for example
    float:left;margin-right:1em;

SL row with the third parameter = N may be used:

  • to show a removed track
  • used twice together - to show a platform
    of another station or some other wide space

To draw a platform use:

  • for a side platform - one row of P1 or P2,
    depending on the platform's orientation
  • for an island platform - two rows of P1 and P2
    together

Articles on which to put the layouts[edit]

Explanations[edit]

Some of these images are already used in small galleries here (two galleries), here, and here, but in the infoboxes the thumbnails will be larger and more readable (see three infoboxes above).

The current version doesn't take into account:

  • abandoned or closed levels (the only exception is Bergen Street (IND Culver Line), as its lower level hosts the express tracks of the same line that are unused, but still available for service)
  • curvature of stations
  • tracks not visible from the station (actually it means that I don't show levels without platforms; the only exception is 111th Street (IRT Flushing Line) where the express track is visible)
  • occasional bi-directional use of tracks (such as at Prospect Park (BMT Brighton Line))
  • offset platforms or short platforms
  • bumper blocks (dead ends are always shown where the service terminates and not where the track ends)
  • curtain walls
  • weekend or night changes in routes (only weekday services are shown)

This is how it looks in a usual gallery (with the mentioned examples of Bergen Street (IND Culver Line) and 111th Street (IRT Flushing Line)):

This is how it will look after conversion to templates:
