I see your article on 1992 tube stock. I'm confused, is this a train, an old article of clothing, or what? When you first create an article please try to get at least a paragraph on it for that initial posting so as to keep people from confusing it with vandalism. Thanks.

4Res page[edit]

just saw the 4Res page you have added. perhaps you might consider moving the info to the BR class 404 page (which included 4Buf, 4Res, 4Gri and 4Cor types)? (Our Phellap 21:18, 26 Nov 2004 (UTC))

  • Thanks for this comment - I did consider it - changed my mind - now changed my mind again. I'm transferring the information onto one page! Musicandcomedy 13:56, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)

3Sub v. 4Sub[edit]

Just a quick point. I thought that the 3Sub units, and the 4Sub units were different. only the new-build steel units were given TOPS class 405. the 3 car and wooden-body (1925-type) units were withdrawn well before this and were not given TOPS class. Also werent the two types of completely different design? (Our Phellap 15:04, 30 Nov 2004 (UTC))

  • The designation Sub covered a range of units with significant variations, owing to the differing origin of the coaches used. In short, the term indicated their use rather than a specific design. When the 3Sub units were made up to four cars (when they were reclassified as 4Sub), this was done by adding one of the new steel-bodied style trailers, also used in the new build 4Subs. They were known as 'Augmentation' trailers. This extended the 3Sub units lives through the 1950s, but as you say, none of the wooden-bodied cars survived to TOPS days. Many of the augmentation trailers were reformed in newer 4Sub units or rebuilt for use in 4EPB units, while the wooden bodied cars were burned in the 1960s. Musicandcomedy 16:52, 30 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Irish railways[edit]

Hi there!

Great to see the work you've done on Irish diesel locos. May I suggest that the various short stub articles be combined into the parent "Diesel Locomotives of Ireland"? It would be nice to be able to read about all of them on one page - and each is only a paragraph or two anyways. If you copy the content in yourself it would be better - as you will retain attribution for the content.

If you are interested in any other Irish topics, see the Irish wikipedians' notice board.

  • Thanks for that comment. I'm rather hoping that they won't stay as short stubby articles and that more can be added, but I take your point and if they stay stubby I'll re-arrange it into a single page! Musicandcomedy 16:52, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

GWR Iron Duke Class?[edit]

Am i right?

  • Yes, I would say that they are!

CfD nomination of Category:Famous locomotives[edit]

I have nominated Category:Famous locomotives (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) for renaming to Category:Individual locomotives (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at the discussion page. Thank you. LeSnail (talk) 19:45, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Tregenna Castle[edit]

I have expanded the Tregenna Castle stub but have not found any reference for its original builders and sale date, which I think you wrote. Are you able to add these or any other information? Geof Sheppard (talk) 13:04, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Light dues[edit]

Hi. Can you please have a look at Light dues, an article you recently created. I have concerns over a section which has been directly copied and pasted from [1]. Although sourced, this is still a violation of copyright and needs to be quickly rewritten or else removed. Thanks, France3470 (talk) 12:26, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Katerfelto[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Katerfelto has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Insufficient evidence of notability. There are plenty of free copies of Whyte-Melville's book on the internet, and some info about Katterfelto the conjurer, but I can find little or nothing about the horse. Nor can I find any commentary or reviews that would lift the book into notability, which would have been an alternative means of retaining this article.

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.  —SMALLJIM  12:51, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
