Large data dump[edit]

Whoa, that's a big chunk of text that desperately needs a copyedit. Since it was all added in one edit, I'm a little suspicious of its origins; in other words, it has a slight odor of a copyvio. But, Googling for key phrases doesn't come up with exact matches, so it may be legit. Since I can't verify if it is or isn't a copyvio, I'll assume good faith for now. slambo 17:15, May 11, 2005 (UTC)

I also suspect that this might be a copyvio, but I'm unable to confirm it. I know a good bit of this railroad's history offhand, and the copy seems to be accurate. A cleanup is definitely in order, though. Siliconwafer 00:30, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

After an extensive search, I don't see evidence of a copyvio, so I've gone through with wikification and a copyedit. Check the todolist (above) for tasks that still need to be done. slambo 16:06, May 29, 2005 (UTC)

Railroad name[edit]

Watertown and Potsdam Railroad on Google doesn't turn up much. However, Potsdam and Watertown Railroad turns up a lot. I wonder if we've got this backward? Siliconwafer 18:09, 31 May 2005 (UTC)

That's quite possible; I don't have a reference handy right now to verify this (other than Google, of course, but you've already done that). As I went through with my copyedit, the text seemed more like a brain dump than anything else, so flipping around one road's name could be believed... slambo 18:49, May 31, 2005 (UTC)


I will work on getting some references, too. --Railsmart


There are some maps online from 1886 which can be found at:



The second web site includes a full brochre and says that it is available under a creative commons license although given the 1886 date, it should simply be public domain now... Dspark76 (talk) 01:17, 17 July 2008 (UTC)


This edit [3] appears to be copied from [4] and needs to be paraphrased.--Lucas559 (talk) 23:15, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
