Berwyn article[edit]

Am I right in thinking it's not that close to Cadair Berwyn? I though that might be worth adding. Llangollen is a lovely area but haven't been there for years! Blythwood (talk) 21:07, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

@Blythwood: You are indeed correct. The OS map places Cadair Berwyn about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) to the south-west of Berwyn, itself. Regards, EP111 (talk) 21:12, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
Great, thought that was worth clarifying. Put it on the article now with a link & citation. Blythwood (talk) 21:31, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

British Rail Classes 445 and 446[edit]

Why are you using |art-sections= for the number of cars in a non-articulated EMU? I also noticed this at Class 311. --Redrose64 (talk) 21:50, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

@Redrose64: For |art-sections=, the documentation for Template:Infobox train states: The number of coaches/power vehicles formed into an articulated trainset.

See the definition of articulated:

  • 2. having a joint or joints; jointed.
  • 3. (of a vehicle) built in sections that are hinged or otherwise connected so as to allow flexibility of movement.

Therefore, as a trainset, the EMUs are definitely articulated. I expect articulated may be interpreted as "two sections sharing a common axle or bogie"? If so, that's not what the template or the definition specifies. Regards, EP111 (talk) 09:45, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

In railway terms, an articulated train (unit, coach) has two bodies sharing a common bogie - this might have two pivots, one for each coach, or a central pivot with one coach resting on that, and the other coach resting on a pivot mounted on the first coach, directly above the bogie pivot. Post-1945 examples in the UK include Class 370 and Class 373 but few others, although most of the modern British tram systems (including Manchester, Sheffield and Blackpool) use articulated trams.
If there are twice as many bogies as coach bodies (each coach has its own bogies), it's not articulated.
If there is more than one body, and the number of bogies is one greater than the number of bodies, it is probably articulated.
Some books that may help to clarify matters:
  • Harris, Michael (1995). LNER Carriages. Penryn: Atlantic Books. pp. 19, 53–57, 62–72. ISBN 0-906899-47-8. 
  • Harris, Michael (1985) [1966]. "Articulated Corridor and Suburban Stock: 1925". Great Western Coaches from 1890 (3rd ed.). Newton Abbot: David & Charles. pp. 78–80. ISBN 0-7153-8050-8. 
  • Essery, R.J.; Jenkinson, David (2000). "Chapter 3 - Articulated General Service Stock". The Illustrated History of LMS Standard Coaching Stock - III: Non Corridor, Special Purpose and Self-Propelled Vehicles. Shepperton: Oxford Publishing Co. pp. 81–88. ISBN 0-86093-452-7. 0007/A2. 
Harris (1995) has quite a bit on articulated coaches through most of the book - the LNER had many more articulated coaches than all of the others put together; there's a good photo and drawing of an articulation bogie on p. 18.

@Redrose64: Thanks for the comprehensive reply. I'd be grateful if you could update the template documentation to reflect this, and make this clearer for myself and others, preferably with articulated train linked? I expect that the link would prove to be very useful in the documentation. Regards, EP111 (talk) 17:18, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Your work in Saint-Lô's article[edit]

Hi, I'm a French journalist working in Saint-Lô and I noticed that you made a great work about my town's Wikipedia's page during last autumn.

I would ask you some questions about it. Can you give me your email address in order to permit me to send you my question ?

IBX info[edit]

I may have forgot to thank you for your efforts to add the IBX detail to the many articles you have so far - an otherwise thankless task but one you have undertaken. Kudos. Koncorde (talk) 23:03, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

Your thanks are appreciated. Regards, EP111 (talk) 08:03, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Liverpool to Wigan Line[edit]

Thanks for the great edit EP111 - the sun wasn't shining the day I took a similar shot at WNW P6 ! Nice to see a positive edit rather than the negative ones I get from a certain person who claims the flower of Lancashire... Now all we have to do is update the new franchisee, Arriva Trains North, who have decide to brand themselves 'Northern' - confusing, ain't it ?! Cheers Paul Gaskell (talk) 16:14, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

I do try to make as many green edits as possible. Thanks for appreciating it. EP111 (talk) 13:59, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Tireless Contributor Barnstar Hires.gif The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
Thanks for your hard work on that long list of Liverpool docks articles. They look so much better now. Andy Dingley (talk) 16:26, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@Andy Dingley: Cheers, Andy! I've still got a bit more to add to the infoboxes from "Baines, Thomas (1859). Liverpool in 1859. ", which seems to be a very good source; Part II, especially. It's not half as long a list, compared to some of the things I've done. Regards, EP111 (talk) 16:32, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I was wondering what you'd found as sources. I found them surprisingly scarce when I was looking - although I guess I could always go back there and go to the big library. Andy Dingley (talk) 16:41, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Well, I've got a few books on the docks due in the next few days, so I'll see what they offer with regard to everything but everybody's favourite. One which isn't on my list, though, is Lancashire: Liverpool and the South West. ISBN 9780300109108.  It's an 800-page tome, which I'm fairly certain will give some detail on the architecture of Liverpool's docks. EP111 (talk) 16:56, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Clarence Dock[edit]

Hi. I noticed you edited this page and great. I just want to know why you rewrote who supplied the source of the Echo link in May? As it was me that added the link? Babydoll9799 (talk) 15:13, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

The reference wasn't fully formatted, only provided as a titled link, and not helpful for future archiving in order to keep the reference alive (it needs at least the date, and should preferably use one of the cite templates which also allows the archiveurl= and archivedate= parameters, as I've formatted it). As no date was given in the original reference, I checked the link was working and provided the date I saw the article at that link. If you'd like to see how it was before I reformatted it, see this revision. Regards, EP111 (talk) 15:29, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
