Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway
Can you please help me get a quart into a pint pot?
I have extended the "main" article Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway by creating another article - Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway Timeline - which a reader of the main article can access near its start. If you have a look you'll see what I mean.
The main article is pretty good, but the purpose of the timeline article is to spell out the railway's remarkably convoluted evolution.
I've done this because simply putting the timeline's text, and especially its route diagram, into the main article returns a "too large" error.
The process works, but I'm getting a Bot screaming at me about the timeline article's lack of sources and notability, most of which belongs to the combined articles.
I'm stuck for a way forward.
- This is a difficult one. We don't generally have these kinds of articles on here. You might want to see if you can rework the content into a "history" article, such as History of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. Lamberhurst (talk) 21:59, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
- Thank you for your advice. As a result I've put the hours in developing the article and would appreciate your comments on it and on Blaenau Ffestiniog Passenger Stations which I did before CCLRT; as you will see the Blaenau article is a similar beast.

RE: Jean Claude-Juncker
Hi! I saw you un-did an edit that User:Therequiembellishere made. I agree with you a 100% on the matter. I myself have involved with a dispute with the editor. It seems he made mass edits to European pages. The editor from what I see is from the United States, he/she should not be worried about European pages. Is there any way to do something about this editor? maybe a block? I look foward to hearing your opinion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:46, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

I've received it today. I'm a bit disappointed to be honest, I think it needed a bit more editorial input. However, it's a great deal better than nowt and it is worth the cover price to me for pages 60 to 63 which contain five photos new to me, taken from next to my old school in Shirebrook.
