I moved the page to DLR station as all other station pages have been moved to reflect their current status for example: New Cross Station was moved to New Cross railway station, Barbican station was moved to Barbican tube station since First Capital Connect stopped serving.Likelife (talk) 19:43, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
- Per the convention at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (UK stations)#Official names, the official station name is taken to be what is displayed on the platforms. I don't think we should move the article until the platform signs change, at least not without a WP:RM consensus. It's fine to note in the article that the audio announcements include "for ExCeL West", but we shouldn't take that as being part of the station name until there is evidence that the DLR consider it to be.

Sorry, but what planet are you from? The announcements are being made on the train. They are automated. It is not one or two customers standing up at random calling out altered station names for the fun of it (otherwise they would be a lot funnier than "Custom House for Excel West"). Ergo, as the automated announcements have to be programmed in by DLR staff authorised to do so, ergo, that they are happening *is* already very firm evidence of what the DLR consider the station name to be. The only reason I have not updated is because until some other evidence exists, it constitutes original research. WillE (talk) 23:43, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
- Equally (he said looking at the article again several months on, based on "Per the convention at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (UK stations)#Official names), the official station name is taken to be what is displayed on the platforms." the station title should be Custom House for Excel. See the photo in the article itself. Unless THAT is original research? I am being bold. WillE (talk) 20:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
Excel or ExCeL?
The official capitalisation of both the station and the venue it's named for is "ExCeL" (Exhibition Centre London). Should this article be moved to that capitalisation (as the official spelling, treating it as an acronym) or should be keep it here lowercased (treating it as a word). MOS:TM#General rules offers no help here, it says "Trademarks in CamelCase are a judgment call. CamelCase may be used where it reflects general usage and makes the trademark more readable - OxyContin or Oxycontin—editor's choice". Thryduulf (talk) 13:11, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
I have added some history of the original station and the PLA engine shed to this page. Should the name be changed to reflect the history of the stations (and soon to be Crossrail station) or should the historical material be split off into a separate article? I prefer the former as they are all more or less geographically at the same location.--Davidvaughanwells (talk) 19:32, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Custom House railway station
Now that construction of the Crossrail station is well under way (see http://www.newhamrecorder.co.uk/news/custom_house_crossrail_station_structure_completed_1_4008637) should Custom House railway station have its own article rather than a redirect to this page about the DLR station? The info concerning the previous North London Line station can be transferred to the article about the Crossrail station seeing as it on the same site? --TBM10 (talk) 20:29, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
