Usage

This template expands a name (first parameter) to link to the appropriate tram stop article, without displaying "tram stop".

Optionally a second parameter can be supplied to distinguish between identically named tram stops in different locations. (With respect to the UK, this is typically the county level administrative division.)

For example:

{{tram|High Street}} expands to [[High Street tram stop|High Street]].

{{tram|Halfway|Great Orme}} expands to [[Halfway (Great Orme) tram stop|Halfway]].

Discretion should be used on whether to name the place itself or the stop that serves it. In tram articles it is generally preferred to use the stop unless specifically talking about the place, for example that Mitcham serves the district of Mitcham.
