Article name[edit]

The article was recently moved from "Taipei Station" to "Taipei railway station". I was wondering if others had opinions on the move. I'm more inclined to the original "Taipei Station" since calling it a railway station (i.e. its TRA name) would seem to neglect that the station also has two metro lines. It would be similar to just calling it "Taipei Main Station" and forgetting that TRA/THSR also operate at the station. If the current naming ("Taipei railway station") is the most appropriate, then I would suggest capitalization to "Taipei Railway Station" instead. Thoughts? -Multivariable (talk) 20:48, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

China Post gives the name as "Taipei Railway Station" (with capital letters), so I'd go with that. This is also the form used by the Taiwan Railways Administration. If you look at the Wikinames of railway stations around the world, it is quite unusual to give the descriptor simply as "station". Readers familiar with the nomenclature might think it was a bus station or something else. Another possibility is "Taipei train station" (not capitalized since it would be an unofficial name).

I was just curious, since it's only called "Taipei Railway Station" when TRA is involved. It's just called "Taipei Station" with THSR [1] and "Taipei Main Station" for the MRT. I do agree that "Taipei Railway Station" is a more appropriate name for the station than simply "Taipei Station"; I was just wondering how to justify going with the TRA name rather than the generic name ("Taipei Station"). Then again, this China Post article just calls it "Taipei Station".
Curiously though, Tokyo and Seoul don't add "Railway" to their names, even though those are widely known as rail-centric stations. On the other hand, Beijing and Shanghai do add it. Go figure, I guess. Thanks! -Multivariable (talk) 18:14, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
Since there seems to be no controversy, I have submitted a request to get the name changed to "Taipei Railway Station." Kauffner (talk) 03:58, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Separate article Taipei Main Station (Airport MRT)?[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

The Airport MRT station is a good 200 meters from the other systems. Having a separate article would make that clear to readers. More importantly, the station is nearly equally far from Beimen station, so having a separate article would emphasize that Beimen is equally viable as a transfer station. Szqecs (talk) 14:33, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Good points. Additionally, on the official Taipei Metro map [2] the station appears to be separate as well with dotted lines (though it can be argued that it was drawn this way to convey its closeness to Beimen rather than its distance from Taipei Main). On Chinese Wikipedia [3], the station page is indeed a separate article. An argument against this move would be that the station (A1) is indeed called "Taipei Main Station" (vs. anything else) or 臺北車站, indicating it's meant to be associated with the Metro/TRA/HSR station.
