Splitting downtown articles[edit]

Following This CfD discussion, I think it's worth having a discussion about the merits of keeping the articles about the following combined:

Some justification for splitting:

  • They aren't combined on any city site or literature (that I have seen)
  • It's arbitrary grouping (i.e. why is 7th st combined with 6th st rather than 8th st?)
  • They are physically different locations.

Some justification for keeping:

  • Short articles with minimal expansion potential
  • Stations are single directional, so grouping may be logical to have an east and westbound station combined (although there will always be one left out)
  • Stations are close together

From my position, since they are not officially grouped, it seems like original research for us to group them as though they are formally paired.--kelapstick(bainuu) 19:07, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Anyone, anyone? Bueller? --kelapstick(bainuu) 23:15, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
I have gone ahead and done the splits, there are no incoming links to the existing articles, so I deleted them, as they would not be a general search term. All (or at least most) of the existing articles related to down town stations should already be cleaned up. --kelapstick(bainuu) 18:29, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Suggestion: spliting "Red Line", "Blue Line", and "Green Line" as independent articles[edit]

Although Red Line and Blue Line share the same track system, they are independent services.

We have articles for Captial, Metro, and Valley Line of Edmonton; Confederation and Trillium Line of Ottawa; and pretty much every service in other North American metro/lightrail systems on Wikipedia. Lines of Ctrain deserve to have their own profiles.

I suggest that much of the content of the current "Ctrain" article could be moved to profiles of the lines, leaving this main article with information on the whole system and also make it a hub of information browsing. ----ZifengZ

I agree (and was going to eventually get to that), but if someone wants to ahead of me, by all means. --kelapstick(bainuu) 23:05, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
I've created the Red Line (CTrain) and Blue Line (CTrain) articles, I will have to have a look at what is here, and add to it with the existing sources, but much of the material in here is way more than necessary, even for specific line articles (like for example the specifics on platform reconstruction). So it will take some parsing, but it's started anyway. --kelapstick(bainuu) 22:10, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
That's a great start! One thing I would recommend would be to move the line articles to Red Line (Calgary) and Blue Line (Calgary). It would follow the WP:CANSTATION guide and be more consistent with the stations (Dalhousie station (Calgary)) and with other system's lines (Valley Line (Edmonton)). Thanks, BLAIXX 22:54, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
Hmm, I had gone by what the other lines at Blue Line were (although some are a mix of the metro name, and some are city metro) convention. Related to this, there are a bunch of templates which default to (CTrain) at the end rather than (Calgary) (regardless of if disambiguation is required or not). I am not smart enough to fix that, although it would be nice to avoid defaulting to a redirect, if possible. --kelapstick(bainuu) 19:00, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
I think I know how to fix the redirect problem, doing it now... BLAIXX 22:29, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
