I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Again, welcome!

I feel we may have got off to a bad start... It will be good to have a named author working on the Watercress Line article -- it is easier to know that the edits are coming from an informed source (although we must not forget that information should be referenced). The MHR has a long history and the WP article does not yet do it justice.

As you are clearly a fellow enthuiast, you may be interested in 'joining' the UK Railways WikiProject. By doing so you will (a) be able to contribute to the general improvement of UK railway-related articles, and (b) get help and advice on related articles you are working on.

If you need other help about editing here, feel free to ask on my talk page.

Watercress Line[edit]

Explain why you made this reversion please: [1]Signalhead < T > 17:37, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Your revisions were incorrect i.e. Diesel Multiple Units is the correct title which you changed to Diesel multiple units which is wrong. This was also the case for every other change you made. Ralph Chadkirk (talk) 05:38, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Wrong. The term 'diesel multiple unit' is not a proper noun and as such there's no reason to capitalise it. Please acquaint yourself with Wikipedia's Manual of Style. Every other change I made in that edit can be justified in the pursuit of consistency, verifiability and neutrality. Furthermore, you reverted my edit in its entirety, so I cannot understand why you added the words "Most of" to the edit summary.–Signalhead < T > 10:37, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
