Welcome to the assessment department of the Trains WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's rail transport articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{TrainsWikiProject}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Rail transport articles by quality, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

How can I get my article rated? 
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles? 
Any member of the Trains WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.
Why didn't the reviewer leave any comments? 
Unfortunately, due to the volume of articles that need to be assessed, we are unable to leave detailed comments in most cases. If you have particular questions, you might ask the person who assessed the article; they will usually be happy to provide you with their reasoning.
What if I don't agree with a rating? 
You can list it in the section for assessment requests below, and someone will take a look at it. Alternately, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
Aren't the ratings subjective? 
Yes, they are, but it's the best system we've been able to devise; if you have a better idea, please don't hesitate to let us know!

If you have any other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.


Quality assessments[edit]

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Trains}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Trains|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Quality scale for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class rail transport articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class rail transport articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class rail transport articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class rail transport articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class rail transport articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class rail transport articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class rail transport articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class rail transport articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class rail transport articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Book (for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class rail transport articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class rail transport articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class rail transport articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class rail transport articles)  Draft 
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class rail transport articles)  File 
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class rail transport articles) Redirect page Redirect 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class rail transport articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class rail transport articles)  Project 
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class rail transport articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class rail transport articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed rail transport articles)  ??? 

After assessing an article's quality, comments on the assessment can be added either to the article's talk page or to the /Comments subpage which will appear as a link next to the assessment. Adding comments will add the article to Category:Rail transport articles with comments. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.

Quality scale[edit]

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

Importance assessment[edit]

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Trains}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Trains| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

All articles that lack an importance rating are categorized in Category:Unknown-importance rail transport articles.

Importance scale[edit]

Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Example
Top The article is one of the core topics of rail transport. Generally, this is limited to those articles that are listed on {{Train topics}} A reader who is not involved in rail transport will have high familiarity with the subject matter and should be able to relate to the topic easily. Articles in this importance range are written in mostly generic terms, leaving technical terms and descriptions for more specialized pages. Train
High The article covers a topic that is vital to understanding the history or technology of rail transport. Most readers will at least be familiar with the topic being discussed. These articles describe the basics beyond the core topics about how trains work and the more significant historical events in rail transport history worldwide. Articles about the most basic topics in rail transport like rolling stock types, the largest railroad companies and the most historically and culturally significant topics are included in this level. Some technical terms can be used within articles in this range, but where they are used, they should be explained or at least link to articles that discuss the terms in more detail. First Transcontinental Railroad
Mid The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in the history or technology of rail transport. Many readers will be familiar with the topic being discussed, but a larger majority of readers may have only cursory knowledge of the overall subject. Articles at this level will cover subjects that are well known but not necessarily vital to understand rail transport, such as main stations in secondary travel markets, former Class I railroads and more specialized types of equipment. Due to the topics covered at this level, Mid-importance articles will generally have more technical terms used in the article text. Most railroad company executives will be rated in this level. Ulster and Delaware Railroad
Low The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of rail transport technology or history. Few readers outside the rail transport industry or that are not within the local area of the article's topic may be familiar with the subject matter. It is likely that the reader does not know anything at all about the subject before reading the article. Articles at this range of importance will often delve into the minutiae of rail transport, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed. Topics included at this level include most metro and local railway stations, short line railroad companies and limited or one-off productions of equipment or facilities that otherwise had no significant impact on the rail industry.

Requesting an assessment[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to add it at the bottom of the list below.

  1. High-speed rail in Australia - Page has been greatly expanded in past few days (current compared with 29 July). Definitely not start, possibly ready for GA. Also think it should be rated Mid importance - the concept is generating quite a lot of publicity in Australia (again) and would be one of the world's largest HSR networks if constructed.--Yeti Hunter (talk) 14:03, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
  2. Florida High Speed Rail - Greatly expanded since the original assessment. Doubt it is still a start class. Has maps, images and references now, I think those tags can be removed. Additionally, I think the importance should be upgraded since this project is on track to be the first true, dedicated high speed rail line in the United States. - Aalox (Say HelloMy Work) 22:20, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
    Noticed that this was rated C Class by user:Sharadbob back in May 2011. Thank you. - Aalox (Say HelloMy Work) 11:05, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
  3. RailsWest Railroad Museum - what should I do with this?
  4. Secunderabad Railway StationIt's a major and one of the busiest railway stations in Indian city of Hyderabad sharadbob (talk) 14:35, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
  5. Train horn - Improvements have been made to this article over the course of the past year. HarveyHenkelmann (talk) 21:50, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
  6. FS class E656 I've recently wrote these articles, i would like an opinion about them (hope i did nothing wrong, i'm new here) --- PanozzoFetuso (talk) 01:01, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
  7. List of Rail Accidents - Top importance? Seriously?!?!? I know it's in the train topics list right now, but it's barely even an article. An article explaining the common types of rail accidents, their causes, and methods of prevention might be appropriate, but a *list of accidents* as one of the "core topics of rail transport"? I don't think so! (talk) 03:41, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
    I think it is one of the core topics. --Hirohisat 初夏 02:21, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
  8. Rail transport in the People's Republic of China - need some input on where this article stands, what can be improved, better formatting and structure. Cheers, Poeloq 11:46, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
  9. Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (significant edits have been made per the last assessment to hopefully improve the article beyond B status; it would be appreciated if the assessor could leave a few comments on any weaknessess of the article and future directions) (The article has since been promoted to GA glass; it would still be helpful to get some feedback from the project on further improvements) I have now requested a peer review of this artice. I would appreciate it if the Trains wikiproject could give feedback on this article (I listed it here for assessment and comments about a year ago). Biomedeng (talk) 04:19, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
  10. SR West Country Class - Several improvements in flow, references to books and audio-visual material plus a more structured approach to layout.Since been made GA-further feedback helpful.--Bulleid Pacific 11:26, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
    FAC discussion. Slambo (Speak) 15:05, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
  11. Canadian comfort cab - Rewritten to article from, pix addedKG6YKN 21:34, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
    Not sure what you want done mate, its a start class article Pickle 15:35, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
  12. Michigan Central Railroad Depot - New assessment request for this list. I also encourage expansion by other editors. ---- DanTD 04:22, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
    I've put it down as a "dab" as currently it is just a list of stations (ie a dab page) - hope that helps. Pickle 05:18, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
    Fine with me. I suppose I could probably do this myself to St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad Depot and Missouri Pacific Railroad Depot, but they both really need more stations added to them. ---- DanTD 01:28, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
    Please do, there is by no means any need to pass it by this page first (be bold!) Pickle 08:40, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
  13. Woodside (LIRR station) -- Reassessment requested, since I have a feeling there's no need for the expansion request tag anymore, and the person who first posted it loved my expansion. ---- DanTD 14:33, 10 September 2007 (UTC)  Done --Hirohisat Kiwi 16:24, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
    It's still a stub. --Hirohisat Kiwi 16:24, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
    I would venture its a start, IMHO a stub is really short. Once an article has a few paragrpahs, a reff or two, photo and good infobox its a start. Here is a real stub Rye railway station. Pickle 22:06, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
  14. Norwood Junction railway station -- Reassesment required, since i have added many pictures which was a downside before (for not having them), so much that I need a Gallery section! Plus I've added many new sections including History, Transport Connections and Future. Pafcool2 18:01, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
    I would say move to an A possibly GA, but would like other editors help with this. Bluegoblin7 18:39, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
    Since it is already a B, you would need to nominate it for GA status through the GA procedure. I'm sure if you posted notices up on TWP, UK trains, and London transport notice boards you would get some help in fulfilling the GA requirements. Pickle 03:29, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
    I suggest that it should be referenced first. There's barely any references... --Hirohisat Kiwi 06:36, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
  15. Grand Trunk Railway Station - Major conversion from a redirect to Durand Union Station to a list of Grand Trunk Railroad Stations. Contains a US rail stub, but no Canadian RR stub, and should be expanded. ---- DanTD 04:25, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
    Not sure what you want done here. Its a dab page, all it needs to do is list the varios stations, it dosen't require any rating (does it?) Pickle 23:08, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
    Well, I was also seeking better stub and talk page tags, not to mention a call for expansion. Since this list covers both stations in the US & Canada, I wanted to make sure nothing from north of the border is overlooked, since WikiProject Trains has often been accused of only focusing on US-related railroad articles. Besides the WikiProject Trains tag on the back, I also added the National Register of Historic Places tag on the back, but I don't know of the Canadian equivelant of that, or whether there's a project for it. ---- DanTD 02:42, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
    UPDATE -- Found them myself and added them on April 1, 2009. ----DanTD (talk) 18:07, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
  16. Silver City Comet - New article, assessment needed. Article covers the diesel train and the service it provided until its demise. - Cheers, Vicer Userpage | Talk 11:04, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
    I've put it at a start class as it could be expanded. Not sure on importance though. Simply south 11:18, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
  17. Waterloo International railway station - stubbed off from Waterloo station into a main article of its own, and then significantly expanded and referenced. Neddyseagoon - talk 10:11, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
    I've put it as a start class as it is still quite short at the moment and maybe there should be a few more sections and pictures. Also look at the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and Eurostar. Good start though. Simply south 11:35, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  18. Réseau des Bains de Mer New article that I created, covers the part of the RBM that closed in 1947/51. The other part of the RBM now forms the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme which I expanded and has been rated, but also needs reassessment now. Mjroots (talk) 12:52, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
  19. Isle of Mull Railway - I have expanded this article. Needs reassessment, currently stub class but I think it should now qualify as start class. Mjroots (talk) 19:46, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
  20. Fairbourne Railway - Article importance not assessed as yet - requires more work to improve quality Willsmith3 (talk) 22:15, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
  21. Chemins de fer de Corse Greatly expanded, needs reassessment for quality.
  22. Well no, i have not made significant changes recently but otherwise this has gone through a large change and it is ages since an assessment was done so i request one on the London Underground. Simply south (talk) 21:44, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
  23. Arriva Trains Wales was last assessed in July 2006. It has changed a lot since then, and I'd appreciate an assessment of its quality. Ansbaradigeidfran (talk) 22:28, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

  32. FrontRunner - Thoughts? --Admrb♉ltz (tclog) 00:19, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
  33. Mid-Norfolk Railway - I'm trying to get this to GA standard. Much work has been undertaken since 2009 (last review), with some content forked out. I think it has to be about there, but won't make the call on an article I've contributed so heavily to. DiverScout (talk) 13:05, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
  34. Southern Pacific 1215 - initial write up on this great locomotive, but I'm a photographer not a writer.. I've tried to give it a good start... Grey3k (talk) 11:41PM, 22 August, 2008
    : Start class is right for this article - Bethayres (talk) 09:03, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
  35. Selma-Smithfield (Amtrak station) Reassessment requested - Despite being tagged for cleanup, I'm not sure it really qualifies as a stub. ----DanTD (talk) 12:48, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

    Mostly, more citation of references, I'd say. -- Starbois (talk) 13:00, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

I hope to continue adding onto it as I uncover more sources (I am currently browsing through about 20-30 years worth of engineering convention proceedings looking for historical and technical data). Slopes09 (talk) 08:21, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
  50. Stadler FLIRT - Reassessment requested, after expanding the article from a stub. Also the importance seems low to be for a vehicle sold more than 500 times in eight countries. Since this is my first bigger contribution on Wikipedia I would appreciate some feedback. Thanks. --TnTch (talk) 12:47, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
  51. Beijing Subway has undergone extensive changes since it was last rated in November 2006. Though some of the new content reflect the rapid growth of the subway during that time (the Beijing Subway doubled in size), much of the new content was devoted to the history section. Please reassess and leave feedback. Thank you. ContinentalAve (talk) 07:49, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down 15:20, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

  80. GCR Class 8B - third brand new article. Hopefully this one is more than stub quality! Lukeno94 (talk) 13:28, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
  81. GCR Class 8G - another brand new article. Hopefully this one is more than stub quality! Lukeno94 (talk) 17:52, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
  82. GWR Ariadne Class - Originally a list-class, now that I've tablized the names, I think a reassessment may be required. Lukeno94 (talk) 14:23, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
  83. Arnhem train accident - Edited it some time ago. Most essential information is there, this one seems more than a stub. PiusImpavidus (talk) 13:38, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
  84. Fort Railway Station (Colombo) - Hasn't been reviewed by the project Pheonix (talk) 19:33, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  85. Victorian Railways S class - This article has existed since 2006 and is currently "B-class" on the quality scale. In recent weeks I've effectively doubled the size of the article, with many new details sourced from archived newspapers from the day. I'm keen to get feedback on getting the article up to GA status. Zzrbiker (talk) 09:00, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
  86. Riverline (Hobart) - This is a very new article I’ve been editing that currently has a stub rating. I personally think it should at least be rated start and am hoping someone here will agree. I'm also in doubt about its level of importance - This will be the first constant passenger rail service to operate in Tasmania in over 25 years. I’m also looking for tips and pointers of what else I can add to article with the current sources at hand (on the exception of maps/diagrams as that’s not my specialty)?

  87. Better Farming Train (Saskatchewan) - New article requiring a rating. I had started out writing a page on the Better Farming Train in Victoria, Australia and put some of this in a background section, but it kept growing and I decided to make it a separate article. Ferroequinologly (talk) 05:24, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
  88. Tatra T6A5 - The article is completely rewritten, new info added, references added, please check.--Sheep221 (talk) 09:44, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
  89. Steam Locomotivr 1243 - need some input my first article, what can be improved, better formatting and structure. Cheers, Hpeterswald (talk) 20:46, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
  90. Ulsan Station - Kept with 'Stub' rating for 3 years. Requesting (re)assessment for 'Start' or better. Estas Erad De., aŭ moknomo [krǽniːzjər]... 젠장, option이 안먹힐 줄 몰랐군. 04:23, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
  91. One-man operation - The article has been expanded vastly the last couple of months and has never been assessed. Please asses quality and importance. Henry1500 (talk) 20:38, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
  92. Piedmont (train) - Article has been around for a couple years and could use an initial assessment for quality and importance. Dahumanpretzal (talk) 02:10, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
  93. Cane Belt Railroad - This is my first foray into railroads. Please assess for B-class. Thanks. Djmaschek (talk) 05:42, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
    Reassesed as B-class. Gummbahla (talk) 11:37, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
  94. New Hyde Park (LIRR station) - Reassessment requested due to addition of history chapter and additional references. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 16:14, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
  95. Lausanne-Flon station - There is still much to do here but I've put quite a bit of work into it recently, and believe it is now easily start-class. I've already identified areas where improvement is needed, but a more impartial assessment would definitely help. Thanks. --Peeky44 What's on your mind? 16:45, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
  96. Belmont Park (LIRR station) - Reassessment requested due to considerable expansion, including addition of history chapter and additional references. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 11:28, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  97. Stadium (Link station) - Expanded and referenced in one swift blow. Clearly not a stub anymore. SounderBruce 22:37, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
  98. Casa-Port railway station and Casa-Voyageurs railway station. Stubs translated from French. Almost certainly stubs on assessment, but gets them on your radar. Si Trew (talk) 23:56, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
  99. Beacon (Metro-North station) - Reassessment requested due to considerable expansion, including addition of history chapter and additional references. I certainly don't expect it to be an FA-class article, but it has to rate better than a mere Start class. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 12:54, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
  100. Roydon railway station Reassessment request, as I have expanded the article.(Spymo (talk) 15:06, 27 December 2014 (UTC))  Done upgraded to start class.
  101. Buenos Aires Underground - Reassessment request. I've done quite a lot of work on it recently and would like to eventually get it up to GA status, would appreciate some feedback.
  102. Trams in Buenos Aires - New article assessment. Likewise, any new articles listed on my user page which are not assessed would be much appreciated. SegataSanshiro1 (talk) 22:35, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
  103. Trams in Szczecin - the article has been expaned. I have added more informations like history, current rolling stock, tram lines etc. Please rate this article once again. Szczecinolog (talk) 22:13, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
  104. CrossCountry - I've not made changes myself, but both the Quality and Importance seem too low - looks like a B-Class Quality and a Mid-importance to me. Dybeck (talk) 14:07, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
    @Dybeck: It can only be rated B-class if it satisfies all six of the WP:BCLASS criteria - does it do that? As for importance, remember that CrossCountry is a UK organisation, and the |importance=low parameter is for a global perspective. The article presently has two other importance ratings: |UK-importance=mid and |Scotland-importance=mid which are set independently of |importance=. --Redrose64 (talk) 22:50, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
    @Redrose64:. Well I think it meets each of the B-Class criteria, and I also think it meets the Mid-class importance criteria - I would consider it of significance at least equal to Ulster and Delaware Railroad, which is given as the example of a mid-importance article on Wikiproject:Trains' assessment page. If nothing else, I certainly don't think it still warrants Start-Class on the Quality scale. I shan't die in a ditch over any decision made in reassessment, but imho this deserves another look.
  105. Compass Tours - I have recently completed an update to this page, made the headings more relevant and improved the spelling and grammar. Olympiandvv238 (talk) 19:19, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
  106. South African Class Afro 4000 - Unassessed. Updated, especially in respect of the loading gauge controversy. - André Kritzinger (talk) 18:59, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
  107. Assiniboine Valley Railway - Significant changes, including sources cited, over the span of a few years. Certainly not finished, but has improved beyond start class quality. Wikchard (talk) 21:45, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
  108. Draft:Constitution-Talca_Ramal - started Article, submitted draft - First article I wrote , I need help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:14, 3 June 2016
    Drafts are not assessed until after they have been moved to mainspace. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:47, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
  109. Tavares, Eustis & Gulf Railroad - No longer a stub. Multiple additions made to this article this week, including pictures. Jackdude101 (Talk) 15:28, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
  110. Walt Disney World Railroad - entire article re-written this week with the goal of achieving good article status or higher. Jackdude101 (Talk) 03:32, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
  111. LMS Coronation Class - I have expanded this article enormously and would be grateful if it could be uprated from its present "B". Hoots Mon (talk) 20:44, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
    @Hoots Mon: Not possible, I'm afraid. The only ratings above B are GA, A and FA (lowest to highest) - and each has a special procedure for assessment that is out of scope for this page. For GA-class, you need an independent assessor (see Wikipedia:Good article nominations/Instructions); we don't use A-class here, so ignore that one; and for FA, the requirements are stronger than for both A-class and GA combined (see Wikipedia:Featured article candidates). --Redrose64 (talk) 16:52, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
  112. Richmond and Petersburg Railroad - I have expanded this article enormously and would be grateful if it could be uprated from its present "Stub". User:James_Shelton32 (talk) 00:15, 29 December 2016
  113. Vale of Rheidol Railway - I have made a lot of improvements to this article recently. Currently rated start class, I would appreciate feedback.  Willsmith3  (Talk) 19:10, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
