WikiProject UK Railways
Welcome to WikiProject UK Railways. This WikiProject exists to improve the range and quality of articles related to the railways of the United Kingdom. It also covers the railways of the Isle of Man and Channel Islands, though these are not part of the UK. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page or see the Task list further down this page.
This is a WikiProject, an area for focused collaboration among Wikipedians. New participants are welcome; please feel free to join!
The aim of this Wikiproject is to coordinate the huge number of articles relating to railways and rail transport in its different forms within the United Kingdom. It is hoped to produce a more structured and clearer arrangement for users. Its scope includes the history of the railways of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as the current situation covering everything from the architecture, companies and structure, passengers, plans for the future as well as the trains themselves. Plus hopefully it will help keep articles up to date in the changing industry we have today.
This WikiProject was started on 6 April 2006 and needs lots of work doing, so if you can help out please do! Everyone is welcome to join and help out no matter how much you know about railways, just add your name to the members list and check back here to see what's going on.
I will do anything I can, particularly Lincolnshire stations. See my recent additions to Gainsborough Central and also, see what I have offered to this project on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject UK Railways
Mainly Southern electric and South Wales, both prototype and modelling. Especially interested in getting the typography right, so that tables look their best; also interested in getting information correct and up-to-date on the page, and consistent within the page and between pages
Broad, narrow and standard gauge, UK and Republic of Ireland, (Channel Islands and Isle of Man limited) Articles on railway stations, currently information mostly for 1825 to 1985. In process of bringing station pages up to date with each other(info boxes, brief history), specialise in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Ireland and Wales
I can offer help on tickets and fare systems, railway stations generally (especially ex-Network SouthEast area), recent (since 1970s/1980s) closures and openings, and info about TOCs and regions. Ticket systems are my main thing, though.
After creating articles for pretty much every railway depot/sidings capable of sustaining their own articles, I started do the same for railway stations, on a mission to fill in EVERY red link on Wikipedia. After I'm done creating a few railway station articles from redirects, my next step will be attempting to fill in every red link on the A-Z of closed railway stations in Britain, providing there are sufficient sources to work with. Armed with a Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the most generic username of the times, suffering is indeed at hand.
started expanding the Caledonian Railway article, got interested in the rivalry with the G&SWR and the North British, particularly steamer services on the Clyde – started Paisley Canal Line (Cal – G&SWR rivalry) as a diversion.
a fan of God's Wonderful Railway and anything associated with it, be that old or modern as a result of commuting on FGW. Having just written five articles on various South Wales railways, and added the article on the SAR NGG 13 Class Garratt depolyed on the Welsh Highland Railway, I have also found a liking for creating rote maps using the existing German language tool.
