The Categories task force is charged with bringing the morass and overabundance of rail transport related Wikipedia categories under control. This task force will develop a system of categories that will enable editors and readers to quickly and intuitively find articles that they are interested in (for comparison, see the efforts of the Military history WikiProject).
