Cities Sprinter[edit]

You fixed the vectron thing, thanks.Sf5xeplus (talk) 13:49, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

more[edit]

The references are quoting 200km/h and 125mph - in the same breath - so they're rounding the figures - as you say 200km/h = just over 124mph etc. It can be fixed by using {{convert|xxx|disp=5|sigfig=3}}

Alternatively if you start with mph eg {{convert|125|mph|km/h}} and round it works ..

  • {{convert|125|mph|km/h}} ... 125 miles per hour (201 km/h)
  • {{convert|125|mph|km/h|sigfig}} ... 125 miles per hour (200 km/h)
  • {{convert|125|mph|km/h|disp=5}} ... 125 miles per hour (200 km/h)

NYC Subway shop locations[edit]

Regarding the images File:Shop 1.JPG, File:Shop 2.JPG, and File:Shop 3.JPG; Are those more images of the 207th Street Yard ‎, or is this someplace else? ----DanTD (talk) 14:30, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

HXD3B motor[edit]

What was your source for the motor type of the China Railways HXD3B? --Rontombontom (talk) 12:44, 3 February 2011 (UTC)


Bombardier Zefiro[edit]

Hi. I've temporarily reverted your edits to the article, can you explain on the talk page what needs to be changed. If the link is dead we can get the old document from a web archive and use that.

I made a temporary fix here [1] - but I haven't checked if any of the data is now wrong.

Can you re-add any new data. sorry about the inconvinience Sf5xeplus (talk) 22:13, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

I wasn't disagreeing with what you were adding - just trying to tidy up the references..
As I understand it most of the information is unchanged. Though there is some additional height data and a few other changes - all I was asking was that you re-add that, and keep the references tidy.Sf5xeplus (talk) 16:37, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Please check[edit]

Sorry about the earlier revert - I meant like this [2] - can you double check it. I worked out how to fix it using "find and replace" in a word processor.213.249.225.149 (talk) 17:27, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Mystery NYC Subway Images[edit]

Here I am, once again asking for the locations of pics you've taken of the New York City Subway system, and if necessary other subway systems.


There are certainly some others I'm wondering about, and they're not all taken by you. I'll have to ask about those another time. ----DanTD (talk) 17:52, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

The First one is easy, it's the Far Rockaway – Mott Avenue terminal. You can see the signs on the columns. Acps110 (talkcontribs) 22:45, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
I didn't see them until later on, but thanks anyhow to both of you. The R143 train I added to a general list that was incomplete, and I forgot it wasn't one of the ones you took. Sorry. And as far as those three images from the 207th Street Yard go, I wouldn't be so sure they're deleted. All three were renamed, and at least two of them were sent to the commons. ----DanTD (talk) 01:17, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Another one[edit]

Here's another one I've been wondering about that's already in the commmons; File:IMG 1730.jpg. I know you didn't take this, but other than being a 6 train, I can't seem to find out where this is either. ----DanTD (talk) 18:25, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

ALP-45DP[edit]

I've reverted your last minor edit to ALP-45DP to reinstate the redlink to Selkirk Yard as per WP:REDDEAL. I've done a search, and it comes up several times, with a few other pages having red-links. I suggest it should be created as a simple redirect page, possibly to Selkirk, New York, which is at least a quick way of getting its location (once I've asked my wife yet again where Albany is -- I'm British, she's from Yonkers ;-).

If Selkirk, New York is used, I'd suggest creating a "Selkirk Yard", "Selkirk Rail Yard" or "Rail yard" section (with perhaps a {{anchor}} for "Selkirk Yard") so that it gets a positive hit.

An alternative redirection target page might be the Selkirk hurdle, which doesn't currently cite the rail yard, but I assume gives the explanation for the ALP-45DP's circuitous route. Then again the red-link(s) could be eliminated with a piped line as: "by way of Selkirk Yard". Tim PF (talk) 16:34, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:New Dual Mode Locomotive.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:New Dual Mode Locomotive.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Train2104 (talk • contribs • count) 00:42, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

    • Go ahead... delete it... The image is really useless at this point.

Fan Railer (talk) 03:45, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

I agree -- I've removed it from ALP-45DP. Tim PF (talk) 23:57, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
So now it's an orphaned fair use file and must be deleted in 1 week if not used. — Train2104 (talk • contribs • count) 13:31, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Re: File:34 Interior.JPG[edit]

Can you give a description to File:34 Interior.JPG? It's a nice-looking one and I'd like to be able to send this to the Commons. ----DanTD (talk) 12:08, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Ugh! I already beat you to it and posted it in the commons. If you have an account there, feel free to replace mine with yours. ----DanTD (talk) 01:22, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
Fine. I'll just swipe what you wrote and replace it. ----DanTD (talk) 01:49, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

More images threatened[edit]

I found two others that have been tagged as orphans but not necessarily tagged for deletion; File:R33WF Scrap Line With R160B And R32 Closeup.JPG and File:R33WF Scrap Line With R160B Wide Shot.JPG. Let me guess; the 207th Street Yard? ----DanTD (talk) 23:56, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Yep Fan Railer (talk) 06:24, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

M15 Bus in South Ferry[edit]

Regarding this image; Is this bus in South Ferry, Brooklyn, or South Ferry, Manhattan? This is another one that should be thrown into the commons. ---DanTD (talk) 16:33, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

But, which South Ferry? ----DanTD (talk) 23:50, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
South Ferry, Manhattan. (It's an M15 before they switched to three door artics.) Acps110 (talkcontribs) 01:12, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

File:R160B Barcode.JPG listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:R160B Barcode.JPG, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 15:02, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Rail photos[edit]

Greetings Fan Railer! I've noticed you have a load of wonderful train and rail related photos that you have uploaded. I do not know how active you are these days, but many (if not all) of your photos are lacking descriptions (see Special:ListFiles/Fan_Railer). I have no trouble adding descriptions from the best of my ability, but you have much more knowledge on the subject (especially since you took the photos) and I was hoping that you might could add descriptions to all of your uploads. Thanks, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask here or on my talkpage. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 21:53, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

  • I'll see what I can do Fan Railer (talk) 04:38, 16 January 2013 (UTC)


ACS-64[edit]

Regarding test runs, which you mentioned here. I was on the Vermonter #56 today during the engine swap in New Haven when I heard the dispatcher speak these hopeful words over the conductor's radio: "test train". I jumped up, rushed to the platform and waited as long as could, but to no avail. No picture for Wikipedia. Jehochman Talk 23:44, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Your addition of multiple external links on Steam locomotive[edit]

Hello. I have reverted your addition of all of those links to pdf-files on Steam locomotive, both because Wikipedia isn't a link repository, and because the links I tried didn't even work properly. Thomas.W talk to me 16:02, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

  • While I understand the first reason for reversion, I do believe the second you provide is purely your problem, as there is no reason that they would not work.Fan Railer (talk) 20:52, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:7 Extension.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:7 Extension.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:12, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

So you're telling me, that for a photo that I myself shot, I have to now send a copy of me sending myself the permission to upload said photo to Wiki releasing it to the public domain. That's some bullshit. Next time I might as well withhold the information that I published it to my Facebook page as well, and see if that saves me this trouble.

AB Standard, R62 1 Train and R68A A Train[edit]

If you have the chance, can you please upload a picture of the Kawasaki R62 on the 1, the Kawasaki R68A on the A, and the interior of an AB Standard subway car? And please, once uploaded, send me a link to the pictures so I can add categories, use them in their appropriate articles and (if you upload with Wikipedia) transfer them to Wikimedia Commons.

Replaceable fair use File:Metrolink EMD F125 Spirit.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Metrolink EMD F125 Spirit.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy.
