Migrated to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (stations).


The lead paragraph shall include the name of the station as it appears on the system map, and not a short-hand name, but those can and should be mentioned later. It shall also mention the system, the city or area, and the line the station lies on, and, if notable, the location on that line.

The next information should be the area served by the station, and major establishments and attractions near it. A list of lesser but still notable places should be supplied later. The date service began should probably be here. Notable historic events specific to that rail station should go in the next paragraph.

A table should exist, displaying the line(s) and the next stations on that line, with a link to the appropriate line.

Article Templates[edit]

'''[[station]]''' is a [[line]] station in [[city/area]] on the [[line(s)]].  (Notable
information here, like if it's a terminus or changeover station)

It is located at (address/intersection).  (Other notable locations here, like proximity to a 
university or sports venue).  Service began [[date]].

==Notable places nearby==
*List of places that people going to this station may be interested in knowing about

The table should go below the rest, since this kind of information is more appropriately rendered horizontally on the bottom. The western or northern or counter-clockwise station should go on the left. If there is a western or eastern link, that should take precedence (as seen in the second example below), since it would make poor sense to have the eastern link on the left.

Examples of tables:

Next station north:
Friendship Heights
Washington Metro
Red Line
Next station south:
Van Ness-UDC
Next station west:
Court House
Washington Metro
Orange Line
Next station east:
Foggy Bottom-GWU
Next station south:
Arlington Cemetery
Washington Metro
Blue Line
