Line labelling[edit]

The up-arrow showing the Piccadilly Line heading towards central London needs labelling "Piccadilly Line". The row on the diagram is the same as that for Hayes station on the mainline. Even left-aligning one label and right-aligning the other causes confusion and led to an inaccurate correction [1]. I have inserted a row to attempt to overcome this, but if there's a neater solution... Bazza (talk) 12:21, 14 May 2009 (UTC)


The template is so wide that it obscures text in the London Heathrow Airport article. Can the default display be set to hide? Mhockey (talk) 10:08, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

  • You're right to an extent, although it depends on what window width you have. The template text probably needs looking at to abbreviate or condense some of the descriptions. I will have a look sometime unless someone gets there first. Bazza (talk) 13:25, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Try this option - {{Heathrow rail services|collapse=yes}} - by adding the "collapse=yes" parameter you can optionally have the box in a collapsed state. I added this bit of code to the template so I hope it helps. Cnbrb (talk) 15:12, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
