GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    "Opened in 1998, it is located on the same block as the Hillsboro Post Office adjacent to the Washington County Courthouse and the Hillsboro Civic Center bounded by First and Adams streets on the east and west and between Washington and Main streets on the south and north." -- that sentence is a bit too long. "Then retired" needs a hyphen, or can be shortened to just "Retired...". "Scheduled train service began at 11:00 a.m. followed by a two-day opening party." -- sort of fragment-ish. Maybe split into two distinct phrases. I'm pretty sure it's "up-to-date". You may need a link to "lay over". "Three part" should be "three-part".
    All addressed, let me know if the changes work. Aboutmovies (talk) 19:44, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    Which of the buildings around the station opened in response to the station (if it is possible to know this?)
    At most, one building, and I'll check on that later to see how related they are. The other buildings are older than the station. Aboutmovies (talk) 19:44, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
    I checked some sources pre-construction of the one building built after the station opened and there is nothing to indicate the building was built in response to the station. So I guess this is addressed. Aboutmovies (talk) 10:37, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    Could use a better overview shot of the building.
    Addressed. Aboutmovies (talk) 19:44, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    Looks good so far. Could use a minimal amount of edits, but that's all.

Looks great now, thanks! —Rob (talk) 14:18, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
