Location[edit]

I edited the text slightly to make it clear that Patchway railway station is not actually located in Patchway at all, but in nearby Little Stoke. Johnsjames (talk) 09:19, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Is Patchway still considered a town and Little Stoke a village? Whatever the technicalities are I would consider these places now suburbs of Bristol. I would also think that the station's location right next to Rolls-Royce Bristol would be worth a mention. Chardn (talk) 21:56, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi! Will review this. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 06:10, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Well-written article. Only a few points to make: Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:25, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

  • Description
  • A note can be added on what the "chain" unit is.
    Already in note 1. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:45, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, did not notice. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:50, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Can CCTV camera be linked?
    I didn't link it on grounds of not liking common concepts, but ok, can do. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:45, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
As you like. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:50, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Services
  • Great Western Railway who operate most I think "who" should be "that" and the Railway should be considered a single unit, and thus it should be said "operates".
    Sorted. -mattbuck (Talk) 17:43, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Several duplicate links: London Paddington, Filton Abbey Wood, South Wales Main Line, Bristol Parkway, Pilning.
    Regarding duplicate links, it's always been my opinion that there should be no duplicates within level 2 headings, but that having the same link in several sections should be ok on the grounds that people don't always read the entire article, especially when it's a long one. -mattbuck (Talk) 10:00, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
I see your point. Alright, duplinks can be kept if they are necessary. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 06:08, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
  • History
  • More duplinks: Bristol Temple Meads, River Severn, Pilning, South Wales Main Line, Henbury Loop Line, South Gloucestershire, Great Western Railway, Arriva CrossCountry, Manchester Piccadilly.
  • and few details about it survive I think "remain" would be better than "survive"
    I'm not sure remain implies quite the same thing. I've reworded it to very little else is known about it. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:45, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
Fine. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:50, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
  • the gradient between Pilning and Patchway, 1 in 68 Can this be explained in simpler words?
    I'm really not sure how to be more simple than 1 in 68. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:45, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
Perhaps link gradient? I am not familiar with this term here, so could not get it. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:50, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
That's done now. -mattbuck (Talk) 17:11, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
  • What is a community mosaic?
    I've replaced community with decorative. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:45, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
Fine. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:50, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Future
  • Duplinks:Greater Western passenger franchise, impending upgrade to the Great Western Main Line, CrossCountry
  • Citations
  • Lower case in ref. no.s 36 and 48.
    The capital letters are in the original documents, I thought it best to stick with the original format. -mattbuck (Talk) 16:45, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
OK. Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:50, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

That should be all. These done, I would be glad to promote this. Good luck! Sainsf <^>Feel at home 16:25, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

I believe all the issues have now been addressed. This article is ready for promotion. Great job! Sainsf <^>Feel at home 06:08, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Thankyou very much! -mattbuck (Talk) 07:34, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
