Article name[edit]

The five extant articles about railway lines in Jamaica (see Category:Railway lines in Jamaica) are all currently named in the format "Railways of Jamaica: X to Y", e.g. Railways of Jamaica: Bog Walk to Port Antonio.

This is an unusual naming scheme that looks more like a sub-article convention than is the standard on Wikipedia. I would suggest moving them to a more typical format "X to Y line" or "X to Y line (Jamaica)" if disambiguation is needed, although I don't think it will be in any of these five cases.

Please leave any comments you have here (messages also left on the talk pages of the other line articles and the talk pages of WikiProjects Trains and Jamaica). Thryduulf (talk) 19:09, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

I don't think that moving from one naming convention to another naming convention will achieve much.
The only substantial source seems to use "Port Antonio line" more than any other term. bobrayner (talk) 19:45, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
I haven't actually looked at what sources say the common name is, but if it is "Port Antonio line" then that's what the article title should be. I was mainly concerned with the "Railways of Jamaica:" prefix, and assumed the remaining part was the common name. What do sources say the common name of the other lines is?

Note that a specific railway line is a proper noun and capitalized as such. Arsenikk (talk) 21:37, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
Not always! In the UK, National Rail lines lake a capital "L" (e.g. North Downs Line) but London Underground lines don't (e.g. Northern line). I don't know what the convention is in Jamaica but the articles should use whatever it is. Thryduulf (talk) 22:32, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Some light research didn't reveal an obvious source for an official naming scheme for these railways so I've renamed all the articles with the simple format X to Y railway.  — Scott talk 09:19, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
