Initial creation[edit]

I created this article because there were several different versions on the English Wikipedia, each covering different and sometimes overlapping parts of the same subject. I also translated some information from the German article that wasn't present in any of the English versions.

I did read the comments on the talk pages before doing this, but as these articles are all referring to the exact same type of railroad vehicle, I thought it best to be bold and put everything together in a consistent format.

The only content removed from each individual article was that which was redundant between each article. The DBSO article I left alone because it contains quite a bit of specific information on that class of control car that wouldn't make sense to have in this article. --Cacetudo 17:58, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

After feedback, I re-separated the DVT article. --Cacetudo 13:30, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Good article nomination[edit]

I have judged this article as passing the GA criteria. One suggestion that I have is that it would be nicer to see the images in-line with the text, rather than as galleries. Good job, JYolkowski // talk 15:21, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Recentism[edit]

With the mention of Cabbages, I realized that that section is not accurate. There were earlier uses of obsolete locomotives converted to cab cars. The most notable ones I can think of are Long Island Railroad ex-Alco FA cab cars. SpaceCaptain 17:32, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Great... please go ahead and edit the article. I for one don't know anything about those LIRR cabbages. Cacetudo 10:28, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Delisted GA[edit]

This article has been delisted for failure to meet current GA criteria. Once the article has been brought up to standards, it may be renominated at WP:GAC. If you have any questions regarding this delisting, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Additionally, if you feel this delisting was made in error, you may request remediation at WP:GA/R.

GA?!?! We're light years from it[edit]

This article is far behind any "Good article" standard. IMHO:

  • it should provide a more worldwide perspective.
  • it should provide more detailed technical informations (perhaps).
    • it should be removed the remaining US/UK bias (ex. mentioning data only from those countries for "Command type").
    • image placing is mediocre.
    • prose and format quality varies from chapter to chapter (for example, the UK section is crappy as for format)

At light of all this, I downgraded the article to the C-class quality assessment. --Attilios (talk) 09:46, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
