WAGR locos[edit]

Hey it would be really good to try get a standard/template for various classes for the old WAGR locos (i do have better images than my xa B&W Jpeg somewhere) it would be good to have some consistency with other oz states articles for similar arts -what do you think? SatuSuro 12:48, 14 January 2008 (UTC)


I would be reluctant to place every class as they existed to a see also to a history of wa rail transport - it would be better to have either a list of the histroic classes that could be the main link - rather than the main history article - otherwise it will end up a real mess SatuSuro 12:53, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Trying to start a list first - fumbling with it a bit - my x class photos will be delayed - i am interstate from ym home at the moment SatuSuro 13:04, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

The new south wales article has a template for current running rolling stock - not sure what the other states have to allow for discontinued scrapped locos and rollign stock SatuSuro 13:06, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Info box[edit]

check out australian standard garratt - a good standard i think we need to aspire to - imho - i think we need off web info for reasonable sources as well - also I am not ahppy wit current categories - any ideas from your end ?SatuSuro 03:24, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Oldham, Ashton and Guide Bridge Railway[edit]

A question regarding the Oldham, Ashton and Guide Bridge Railway. I work for Oldham Council Highways and we are decommissioning a former railway underbridge by underfilling. We are looking to retain and restore one of the steel parapets. My question is would anyone know of the original railway company's colour scheme for painting of bridges and structures? Many thanks.Waltonhighschoolphoto82 (talk) 07:04, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

The Avengers[edit]

Can I interest you in helping me start the episodes of the Avengers? I want to see articles on them!

Sounds like a good idea. I may start the pilot later.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:52, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Siemens Brothers[edit]

Many thanks for your kind message. Perhaps you should cast a more critical eye over what I've done. Its not yet finished and also I have arranged for a copy of a book to be sent to me which may tell more. It is Siemens Brothers, 1858-1958: An Essay in the History of Industry by John Dick Scott. I've still got a few conflicts within the info I've gathered and maybe that book will clear them up. I'm sincere about you doing an edit. Best wishes, Eddaido (talk) 06:31, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited John Chandos (actor), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Parachute Regiment (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Lady Rachel MacRobert[edit]

Hi, thanks for adding categories etc to the Lady Rachel article. I'm sorry if I've come across as a tad "stroppy" when removing the link to the MacRobert baronets article - WP is really, really hacking me off at the moment but I love creating content and felt Lady MacRobert well and truly exceeded notability requirements. If I can regain a smidgeon of motivation I'll try to add some more detail to the article over the next few days- again, I apologise for being such a bitch!!!

Disappearance of Sheila Fox[edit]

Hi, can you take a gander at Disappearance of Sheila Fox? The article was largely writter by an Australian (me) and an American (Gourami Watcher) but is about a British victim so a pair of British eyes could be helpful. Many thanks. Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 09:00, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
