This months Metro

The next Metro will be issued on the 1st of March. Posted by Unisouth (talk) 15:48, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Valley Lines

I was just looking at it actually, it's good work. I didn't think of adding that line, but I'm just going to add the extension to Ebbw Vale Town and change the branch to Newport because services aren't actually running there yet. Thanks Welshleprechaun (talk) 20:40, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes you're right about Newport. In that case we'll leave that red. BS7-2's new to me as well, I'm just following the pattern. Welshleprechaun (talk) 21:04, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Royal Docks Heritage Railway

I have replied to your question at Talk:Royal Docks Heritage Railway. Biscuittin (talk) 17:10, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. There doesn't seem to be any recent news on the RDHR website [1] and I have some doubts about whether the project will go ahead. Biscuittin (talk) 17:26, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

National Express redirect

Who there, could you revert that move. There is no consnsus on the move at RM, and as I was literally looking into it now, it appears National Express is remaining as the express coach identity [2], all other rebranded UK divisions are getting big straplines, (West Midlands is bigger than the NX bit [3]). Additionally, NX operations overseas are not being rebranded, so the NX name does not apply to them. MickMacNee (talk) 17:21, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Sheffield stations

Hi, wondering if you have some information that may clear up a problem. There is an article West Tinsley railway station but the template calls it Tinsley West. Have you any idea which is correct? Keith D (talk) 20:09, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Birmingham city centre stations

A tag has been placed on Template:Birmingham city centre stations requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{transclusionless}}</noinclude>).

Thanks. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:02, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Services and Night Riviera

Thanks for your welcome to Wikipedia - I'm not all that new as I have made anonymous edits in the past. I thought I would try to find some time to repay the knowledge that I have mined from these pages with some proper editing, but it seems a rather fruitless task as many of my edits have been simply reverted with no comment, at least you had the deceny to expalin your reasons.

I must admit that I don't agree with you. The Night Riviera is just another FGW service and at most stations, certainly in Cornwall, the stopping pattern is no different to many other FGW trains. If we have to put an extra line to show the Night Riviera, then what about the Cornish Riviera Express, Golden Hind, etc.?

Still your revert shows some thought, unlike all those Cross-Country Route links which link, say Penzance, with a page concerned with Bristol to Derby!

Happy editing! Albert Bridge (talk) 10:43, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

The Andys

Hi! I noticed that you are looking at the 2 Andys (their user names are similar). I think that they could be sockpuppets/related, as they both have edited 'one' / National Express articles. Regards, Btline (talk) 17:31, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, many thanks for reverting some vandalism on my user page. Keith D (talk) 11:10, 26 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed you redirected Whatley to Whatley, Mendip with the explanation that there is a hamlet in Somerset with the same name. Our convention has been to use place name, Somerset as the title where there is more than one village of the same name - are you aware of another Somerset village/hamlet with the name Whatley? & if so can you give any further info eg grid ref or lat/long etc? Also the "otheruses" template redirects back to the same page?— Rod talk 15:34, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks I've now found the other Whatley. I've created Whatley, South Somerset which redirects to Winsham which is the parish the hamlet is in. I've also edited the entries on List of United Kingdom locations: Wh & done the "otheruses" on Whatley, Mendip. I hadn't spotted the other Whatley until your edit otherwise I would have sorted it before now - thanks for your help.— Rod talk 17:30, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Template:Central Line‎

As you have taken a interest in this template before, I would invite your comments on the reworking I have done on it recently, particularly the treatment of Stratford, the White City area and the aborted Denham extension. Thanks!! Britmax (talk) 14:28, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments on this subject. I'm not sure about the "disused low level platform" at the north (left on the diagram) side of Stratford. Haven't yet found any proof that it existed. Also, you're right, this line has no cross platform interchange so I may work in a solution that differentiates the low level from the others on this basis.

I linked the right hand running through White City to the station article as the reason for it is briefly explained in the station article. From experience (I was a guard on the Central Line in 1980) I know that the regulars are unaware of the origins if this practice, let alone non users. Thanks again. Britmax (talk) 09:17, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Well that was one of my thoughts for the "disused" platform at Stratford (if they lift the NLL they'll have an impressive underpass). Anyway a year of watching the Timken bearings on the Eastern region trains as I sank into the Central Line tunnel means I know there is cross platform connection here! The station may end up as two groups linked (high and low levels). Thanks again. Britmax (talk) 11:04, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi there! I have no idea who put this article through for Featured Article status, and was therefore extremely surprised to come across your suggestions for improvment today! However, I have taken note of them all and followed all your instructions. The reference figure now tops 100 - phew, it's hard work! Just out of interest, could you take another look and see if I'm on the right path. To be honest, I'd LOVE it to be a FA! Thanks! --Seahamlass 11:45, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Many thanks again! I just wish the GA process was over! It seems to take so long for things to get reviewed. The temptation is to keep fiddling (usually during work hours!) but I've carried out every suggestion given by you and Rod, so it's a case of keeping my fingers crossed I guess! --14:36, 4 March 2008 (UTC)Seahamlass —Preceding unsigned comment added by Seahamlass (talkcontribs)

Hi, thanks for the message. Only a few little edits so far, but I hope to be able to make some more additions to the station pages for the Hitchin-Cambridge line.

Sorry if you were upset that I had copied your User page - I just needed something to get me going. I think it should be completely personalised to me now - including the sandpit link (except your useful set of links) :-)

Hertford East Line

I've reworked the diagram for this line, adding in the two closed branches. Have left Buntingford linking to the town for now, link can be changed once the article is written. Mjroots (talk) 23:02, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Jowett's Railway Atlas shows a junction before Hertford East station linking to Hertford North. However, I know of other inacurracies in that work, so will leave it to you if you know better. Mjroots (talk) 23:12, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
It's a bit complicated, The best way to show it is to do you a diagram using the rail line template. Mjroots (talk) 23:47, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
Nope, was neither of those. Am working on it in my sandbox. Give me half hour or so. Mjroots (talk) 23:56, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

I've tweaked the diagram a bit to link to the Hertford Loop Line (diagram there needs redrawing :-/). I only know of one County School railway station. On another note, I'm looking for someone to get a railway article through the GA process, are you interested? Mjroots (talk) 08:01, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Updated DYK query On 9 March, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Hertford East Branch Line, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

GA candidate

I did have an article in mind, Chemin de Fer des Côtes-du-Nord, which is a French FA. I've had a few comments and made a start on addressing points raised, but would like someone to be the official proposer/arbiter.Mjroots (talk) 11:41, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

White spaces - I'm not seeing a huge white space where you mention seeing one. On my screen, the line 1924 and closed is the last line at the bottom of the diagram, the next line reading on 31 March 1950. There were two major bridges on the line, the being at the bottom of the photo of the Viaduc de Lézardrieux. The line below that spans the full width of the page. Maybe it's something to do with your monitor and settings? Mjroots (talk) 16:00, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
I've moved the next image down over to the left, it seems that the diagram extends further down the page for you. Let me know if this has cured the problem. Mjroots (talk) 16:18, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. If you're happy about the whitespace issue would you strike it on the talk page please? Then I'll know it's done. Mjroots (talk) 16:33, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Wrexham & Shropshire map

Hi, thanks for your message. My thinking at the time I removed the map (as part of the revamp) was that given it's not to scale, it didn't really offer much of an advantage over the Route Diagram Template, which is a lot neater (and doesn't need clicking on). Your new image is an improvement, but doesn't solve either of these problems. --RFBailey (talk) 00:07, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps you could make it a bit more to scale, and the text larger? --RFBailey (talk) 00:29, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
Maybe it doesn't need to be entirely accurate, but London needs to be shown further away from Banbury than it is now! Also, perhaps shrink the West Midlands a bit? --RFBailey (talk) 00:56, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
When you're happy with it, upload it so we can all have a look! --RFBailey (talk) 01:24, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
That's a lot better--could you make the text bigger, though? --RFBailey (talk) 19:03, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

First ScotRail and SPT stations

I was wondering whether actually SPT stations do fall under being a sub-cat of the First ScotRail stations as not all stations listed are served or managed by First ScotRail. I think the cats shouuld be left separate. Simply south (talk) 21:50, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I think to only two not managed by First are Prestwick Airport and Glasgow Central. You are probably right, feel free to amend accordingly. --Stewart (talk) 22:04, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
There are also all the Glasgow Subway stations which are managed by SPT and not First ScotRail. Simply south (talk) 22:06, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Parkhead railway station

I do not think it was wise to change the article name of this station, as it had three different names during its life. My feeling is the article should have been left - with the original name - with redirects from the other names. --Stewart (talk) 16:14, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

I just thought it should be moved to disambiguate it from other stations with that name and it seems that most station articles take the name in which the stations were named just before they closed, so i have seen. Simply south (talk) 16:18, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
Having just done the route map for the Coatbridge Branch (NBR) I was thinking about this, including the Switchback Line. My mind is current to do a disambig page and route map as with Ardrossan railway station. Parkhead will become the disambig page, with the other articles (including one for London Road spawned from it. --Stewart (talk) 16:23, 13 April 2008 (UTC)


Hello, sorry to trouble you, but I just wondered if I could ask a favour. You were kind enough to leave me some good advice about this article on its talkpage the last time it was up for FAC, which I hope I have addressed, and I wondered if you could cast your eye over it again and decide if you could give your support to it? . It has been through a Peer Review, won Good Article status and has been vigorously copy-edited since the last time. I've also had to remove a lot of the photos, to fit in with FA standard, so it doesn't look quite the same, and the refs have been tightened up too. (It has two supports so far, and no opposes, so fingers crossed!). Many thanks, --seahamlass 10:04, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your review. I welcome your constructive criticism, as I realize all of us have room for improvement.

In regard to my userpage edits, most of those are from the days when I catalogued every single article I'd edited on my userpage. As the list got larger, I turned it into a tree with categories. When I started the articles without images project, however, I realized that this would only slow my progress down, so I stopped. I am, however, still keeping an image gallery, which isn't nearly as much effort as cataloguing every taxon I've edited. A couple days ago I noticed someone had their gallery on a separate page from their userpage, so I decided that seemed more efficient and less page-cluttering and adopted that technique.

Hopefully my own userpage edits will stay relatively low for awhile, as I have just gotten it the way I want it again after inserting extra code yesterday.

Well, off to find images of plants again! Thanks again, Bob the Wikipedian (talk) 13:31, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Rest of line

Would the Stirling-Alloa-Kincardine rail link still count as proposed\authorised\under construction because of the aspirations of Longannet-Dunfermline under consideration? Simply south (talk) 15:30, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

I would consider so as this project (the project website and article title) only considered the refurbishment and reopening of the line between Stirling and Kincardine. The remainder of the line is open - albeit frieght only. I would suggest future opening of the remainder of the line to passenger services would be the subject of a new project (and article). --Stewart (talk) 15:36, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Future projects

Could i ask your opinion on this? I am wondering whether the time is right to start an article or two on two proposed railway projects in Scotland, both within about 10-20 miles of each other. One is the Leven rail link, linking towns such as Leven and Methill to the Dunfermline Circle at Thornton, and one is the St Andrews rail link (or Starlink) linking St Andrews to Leuchars. Simply south (talk) 17:07, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

I had a look at the Transport Scotland Rail Projects page and these projects are not listed. I would be reluctant to add them without a relevant reference to a feasibility study, proposal or other web site reference. Sorry I am not being too positive. --Stewart (talk) 19:08, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
There is however merit in some ways. The Leven rail link, although i can't find a website, seems to have been backed by various MSPs in Fife Council and talks seem to be underway. Starlink does have its own website and they had sent a local questionnaire out of which the results made it into the news as a majority support. Simply south (talk) 19:14, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Based on this I would go for a stub article for Starlink, not sure about the Leven rail link. --Stewart (talk) 19:33, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: Castlecary rail accidents

I skimmed the first paragraph of the article, and up to that point only one accident is mentioned. The second accident appears at the end of the article.

I suggest splitting this article into two separate articles:

Does that seem like a good idea?

FYI, I'm doing a wholesale rename of all "rail crash", "train wreck" and similar variations of naming to "rail accident" for the sake of consistency.

For 'from your editor' you and write about how you are reviving The Metro and write about the latest WP:LT happenings good or bad and how you feel about them. You could also write about important TfL news. If you need anymore help please do not hessitate to ask! UNI|SOUTH 08:51, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

I think it is much better than when I was virtualy doing all the work. You can say about the revival, your future ideas and plans for the newsletter and that in order to keep up the interest of the newsletter then more subscribers are needed. Anyway I have decided to start pulling out of the project and Wikipedia in general. I will still be here I will just visit much less often. UNI|SOUTH 18:43, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

The Wrexham and Shropshire map....two problems with the present version

1. The "kink" at, I assume to be Coventry (which isn't "in the Birmingham area"), gives the impression that it is a reversal at that station. It's simply a very sharp curve, and I feel the map ought to reflect that 2. As the main article correctly states elsewhere, not all trains are routed that way anyway. So perhaps the alternative of Soho Pool, New Street, and Bordesley Junction ought to be shewn as well. Songhouse (talk) 16:14, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Many thanks for your response, full reply on my talk page. Some trains are indeed routed via Birmingham New Street. (Songhouse (talk) 18:44, 1 September 2008 (UTC))



Hello! I know you've done some work on Isle of Wight articles, and thought you'd be interested to know that I've just started Wikipedia:WikiProject Wight. I think there's a lot more that can be done with the island's articles, and this should help us all to work together consistently. I hope to see you there! --Peeky44 (talk) 12:09, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice


As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!
