Northern Railway (Western Australia)Northern Railway, Western Australia – bring in line with other similar articles, refer to Category:Railway lines in Western Australia for other examples. --Relisted. George Ho (talk) 08:59, 8 July 2015 (UTC) Coorwrold (talk) 04:58, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment. Not sure about this one. This article is more of a WP:CONCEPTDAB in that it covers several WA railways that were at various times referred to as "Northern Railway". All other articles in that category seem to be about specific railways, so I'm not sure bringing this article in line with them is wise. Jenks24 (talk) 08:10, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
  • oppose majority of articles use the format name railway(Western Australia) in fact only one article currently uses the suggested format, so this change would be inconsistent with accepted practice Gnangarra 12:28, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose - it is not about one railway - and the term 'slipped' in usage between different sections of different railways over time JarrahTree 14:14, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
