Reorganised following the results of the vote in Talk:Rail transport in the United Kingdom/Alternate naming schemes in which it was decided by a majority of users to seperate these pages geographically for the British Isles, not by nation state. —Morven 05:58, Aug 1, 2004 (UTC)

Category:Timeline of rail transport[edit]

A timeline of rail transport series of documents has been created, currently with little content. Please help out (not least since all but 3 "events" are US based). You know the drill: births & deaths, dates of key bits of infrastructure & acts / openings / amalgamations / closures / accidents &c. --Tagishsimon (talk)

The root category is now Category:Rail transport timelines. Slambo (Speak) 18:41, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Page Title[edit]

Shouldn't this page be titled Rail transport in the British Isles since that more accurately describes the content. If not the the link to rail transport in Ireland does not need to be as prominent and the preamble at the start about the history of two nations is unnecessary. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 144.82.192.209 (talk) 10:58, 17 March 2007 (UTC).

The Isle of Man, which is not part of either the UK or Ireland (but is part of the British Isles) has railways. 86.132.138.57 02:09, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

The isle of mans part of the UK! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.125.23.42 (talk) 07:55, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

It is not part of the UK. It is a Crown dependency. 86.143.48.85 (talk) 03:19, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
