Template layout[edit]

Spent some time reorganising this new template to resemble its "sister" template with the current Scottish lines. It should all be in the right place but if anyone spots an error or disagrees feel free to change/comment. --Dreamer84 22:56, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


I have added a few and made a couple of corrections.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this template is, but it occupies a lot of space on a lot of pages.

Is it a list of companies whose lines later became part of the network of one of the big ones? If so then branches built by one of the big companies don't count.

What about companies that built a railway but never worked their own line? These companies simply raked in a lease charge and in most cases were grouped in 1923.

Many of the entries have the word "railway" suppressed. I can see that this could become tedious, but it rather degrades the accuracy. Afterbrunel (talk) 21:16, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
