I see you've added your name to the Trains WikiProject participants list. If you take some time to browse through the WikiProject discussion area, you'll see that I'm a frequent contributor there too. We've been working hard to ensure that data on rail transport related articles is fully cited to reliable sources that are independent of the subject and therefore verifiable by independent researchers. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Slambo (Speak) 17:55, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
