This article has been reviewed as part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles/Project quality task force in an effort to ensure all listed Good articles continue to meet the Good article criteria. In reviewing the article, I have found there are some issues that may need to be addressed, listed below. I will check back in seven days. If these issues are addressed, the article will remain listed as a Good article. Otherwise, it may be delisted (such a decision may be challenged through WP:GAR). If improved after it has been delisted, it may be nominated at WP:GAN. Feel free to drop a message on my talk page if you have any questions, and many thanks for all the hard work that has gone into this article thus far.
- I think the lead needs to be a little longer to properly summarise the article.
- Most of the History section is uncited, almost all of the Trains section, and all of the Station building section.
- "Over the years, Hamm prospered and grew quite notably due to its newfound role as a railway town." Does that mean that Hamm's growth was notable? In what way was it notable?
- The Trains section consists entirely of very short paragraphs which need to be merged.
- "The marshalling yard nowadays operates at only 10% of its original 10,000 wagon per day capacity." When is "nowadays"? 2008?
- "Local car parks have 800 bays, with another 200 to be added in a newly-built car park at the western exit." To be added when? Are they already there now?
No 3) Over the years... In fact Hamm was by the end of the Napoleonic Area a small city like Dortmund an other towns of the Ruhrarea (about 3,000 to 4,000 inhabitants) and lost its status as the Prussian Provinzcapital (County of Mark). Due to the building of the Railway and to the establishment of several Steelwiremills like the Westfälische Drahtindustrie Hamm started to grow again an became a city of Steelers and railway employees the two main industries of the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century. This wasn't changed until the incorporation of neighbouring towns like Heessen and Bockum-Hövel and the muncipalities Herringen and Pelkum in 1975. The great coalmines were situated in those parts of the now greater Hamm. Hamm origianally ment only the old city founded by counts of Mark and some "Feldmark" named fields around it. To give an example of ist grotwh Hamm had in 1819 4,657 inhabitants 1840 there were 4,151 and after the railtrach reached Hamm it changed rapidly 1858 there were 10,022 inhabitants another ten years later in 1867 16,000 and 1880 20,800 and on the 1st of December 1900 31,371. At the start of the war 1939 Hamm had reached 59,000 inhabitants and was still growing and still the main industries were the railway and the Steel. See also de:

I hope it will help to understand this mentioned section better.
No 5) Maybe we can get some answers from the DB!? email: email@example.com The german Wiki give the following Information, after the privatization of the Bundesbahn (today Deutsche Bahn AG) two railway control centers, Hro and Vmo, were closed and the marshalling yard now operates with a tenth of its capacity.
No 6) Allready added, must have been in 2007 or 2006 at the western entrance to the station, with, as far as I know, two storeys. (Groundlevel+1)
I hope that this few informations will help you. if you've got further question please contact me in the german wikiprojekt, you will find an interwikilink here:--Gabriel-Royce (talk) 12:08, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
