signatures[edit]

Hey 7severn7, you don't need to sign your name to posts in articles, just posts on talk pages. Thanks for your contributions. Cheers!--Kchase T 10:02, 1 August 2006 (UTC) Many thanks for the pointers. As a newbie I'm sure to foul up even more.--7severn7 08:05, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Wareham Station[edit]

Just wanted to say how much I liked your replacement of my speculation about the future plans of the Swanage Railway in this article with a note about their aspirations. Much better way of saying the same thing but without falling foul of the Not A Crystal Ball constraint, as I did. Thanks! Britmax 21:04, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

My pleasure--7severn7 20:04, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Question marks[edit]

Hi. Thanks for the contributions you've been making to railway articles. Just a couple of things: if there's something you're not quite sure about (e.g. the year when New Hadley Halt closed), it's best not to add it at all, or just be vague and add as much as you know, for instance say "in the 1970s" instead of "197?". Also, if it's a really short article which needs expanding, perhaps a suitable stub template. Just to let you know. --RFBailey 19:57, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi there RFBailey. Thanks for the tips. I started out as a complete newbie and I am now just beginning to get the hang of all this stuff. --7severn7 20:03, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Steam loco components[edit]

I note your additions to the "Steam locomotive components" page, but did you mean to add them to the top section where they become numbered 35 and 36 but don't reference labeled parts on the diagram? I have been working on an improved component diagram, see Talk:Steam_locomotive_components, comments? --AGoon 21:04, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Reviving the railways[edit]

7severn7, i'm wondering how would i create or find tables. on a lot of pages (use Didcot as an example) they have info boxes about the town. how would i create a template for railway stations, that conveys as much info as possible. i'm about to start the process of creating articles of railway stations that have been closed down (thank u doctor beeching). starting off with oxfordshire, and working my way slowly around the country, sayin who built what, when, where, who took it over, why it closed. needing a bit of help, i got the info, just not the understanding of how to use this site properly.

also, would love to know, if there is an english article, how would i create a version in another language that is linked? say a spanish version of bristol temple meads?--Halowithhorns89 16:30, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

preview[edit]

When you edit a text you find a "show preview" button below the text window. Please use it to verify your edits before you use the button "save page". You will thus produce lesser garbage in the article history. --SonniWP 20:06, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip. As they say "More haste, less speed". 7severn7 (talk) 19:34, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Telford Steam Railway[edit]

Hi 7severn7, could I ask you to stop adding speculation about the future of Coalbrookdale station to the Telford Steam Railway article? While I appreciate your attempt to source it, the document you provided is clearly marked as withdrawn. It also doesn't specifically mention Coalbrookdale station, therefore you cannot use it to source your addition - that would be synthesis which is not allowed. Unless you have a (current) independent, published source that describes the specific issue at Coalbrookdale station, you cannot include this information in the TSR article. Thanks, Gwernol 10:39, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Gwernol If you knew the incline (approximately 1 in 100) that Coalbrookdale stands on you would be more inclined to agree with me. I have now found the current Rail Safety and Standards Board document at GI/RT7016 within http://www.rgsonline.co.uk/docushare/dsweb/ApplySearch Which clear states, with caveats for existing stations, that platforms shall be located on track no steeper than an average of 1 in 500. It would be very unusual in the UK for a derogation to be applied for a new station. This would be applied even more stringently where rolling stock is vacuum braked.7severn7 (talk) 21:07, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Just to clarify, I was well aware of the steepness of the gradient involved before reviewing your edits. Please do not assume bad faith of me, nor continue to make personal attacks and implied smears on my editing or level of knowledge. Please address the issues involved, specifically that you cannot drawn your own conclusions from primary sources, per [WP:OR]]. Thanks, Gwernol 13:27, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

My userpage[edit]

Please don't edit my userpage; doing so is a form of vandalism. How do you presume to know what my to do list is? Gwernol 13:02, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Hest Bank North Junction[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Hest Bank North Junction, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Image source problem with Image:Highley_footbridge.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Highley_footbridge.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 21:21, 24 August 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 21:21, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Image:Highley Station views.jpg[edit]

Hello! I saw that you had problems with a bot about this image. You said that the copyright of this image had expired. When this image was taken? How old are it? You can all available tags at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags. For now, I inserted the tag {{Non-free historic image}} to prevent this image being deleted for not having a copyright tag. Have good edits! Regards, Sdrtirs (talk) 01:00, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

TSR[edit]

Could I ask you again to refrain from adding unsourced suprious information the the TSR page? You seem to be attempting a bold ford across Wikipedia's ethos of accurate reporting. Your help on the history of the line was much appreciated, could you continue in that vein perhaps? WaltTFB (talk) 17:31, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

What can I add without risking banning from Wikipedia????Green Gronk (talk) 01:06, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

At one time there was a change in the up/down direction at Lightmore Junction. I.e. At one time you went up towards Madeley Junction and up towards Buildwas. The most recent change in declared direction means the whole line between Madeley Junction and Buildwas is now consistent. Green Gronk, you seem to object to some interesting facts being included in the history of an otherwise humdrum line.7severn7 (talk) 08:27, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

BR Standard Class 6[edit]

"Steel cylinders"? Can you expand on that at all? Presumably this was the use of a stronger cast steel alloy (and thus presumably thinner / lighter) rather than the cheaper grey cast iron usually used. Was this related to the 19&frac; diameter, mid-way between the 7s and the 5s on what was otherwise the same motion? Why was it done - purely to reduce the 6's weight? Do we know by how much?

My main concern is that someone unfamiliar with metallurgy is likely to be confused by this and see "steel" as a redundancy, "Hey dude, aren't they like all made of steel? Duh!!" and then remove it. Andy Dingley (talk) 09:23, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Some of the BR standard locomotive classes were fitted with cast iron cylinders and others were fitted with cast steel carrying cast iron liners. I hope that clears things up. 7severn7 (talk) 08:20, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

PH[edit]

Speedy deletion nomination of Scott bader[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Scott bader requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Re the paragraphs on Kitmaster kits that you've added to various loco articles - I know that they're mostly (if not all) true, but others might not, and could potentially revert you for adding unsourced statements.

Proposed deletion of Gartsherrie East Junction[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Gartsherrie East Junction has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A search for references failed to find significant coverage in reliable sources to comply with notability requirements. This included web searches for news coverage, books, and journals, which can be seen from the following links:
Gartsherrie East Junctionnews, books, scholar
Consequently, this article is about a subject that appears to lack sufficient notability.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Please read the last section of the talk page for that article. Those videos do not clearly indicate that the bricks in question are Lego bricks.
