WikiProject UK Railways
Welcome to WikiProject UK Railways. This WikiProject exists to improve the range and quality of articles relatied to the railways of the United Kingdom. It also covers the railways of the Isle of Man and Channel Islands, though these are not part of the UK. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page or see the Task list further down this page.

News[edit]

News relating to the project will be placed here.

Aims[edit]

The aim of this Wikiproject is to coordinate the huge number of articles relating to railways and rail transport in its different forms within the United Kingdom. It is hoped to produce a more structured and clearer arrangement for users. Its scope includes the history of the railways of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as the current situation covering everything from the architecture, companies and structure, passengers, plans for the future as well as the trains themselves. Plus hopefully it will help keep articles up to date in the changing industry we have today. This WikiProject was started on 6 April 2006 and needs lots of work doing, so if you can help out please do! Everyone is welcome to join and help out no matter how much you know about railways, just add your name to the members list and check back here to see what's going on.
