Details hidden from the mobEdit

Whoever could have guessed the "subtle" detailing? "Cabalistically esoteric" would be a better description. An encyclopedia is meant to explain, not to have hidden mysteries. The displayed map needs to show the points --SilasW (talk) 19:10, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

As Eurostar is a service not a route I've changed the box heading. The route remains on HS1 article, of course. --AlisonW (talk) 11:34, 11 August 2009 (UTC)


Now that the full route of HS1 is running services can only call at Ashford iff they divert off the main (HS) line. It isn't the case that fast services just run straight through without stopping (as all at Stratford, many at Calais, etc); they just don't actually go anywhere near Ashford now! To clarify Sladen's point; Ashford may not have moved anywhere, but the line has gone East some miles! --AlisonW (talk) 16:58, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

New destinationsEdit

This is nearly correct but is there possibilty that an additional branch be created to take account of the direct service to Avignon Centre as well as the provence service. I do not know how to add this — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:59, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Edit requiredEdit

Seasonal services to Avignon Centre and Aix-en-Provence need to be removed and replaced by additional branch to Lyon-Part-Dieu - Avignon TGV - Marseille - Saint-Charles with best times of 4:41, 5:49 and 6:27 respectively. This diagram is not easy to edit for the everyday user — Preceding unsigned comment added by Steven a68 (talkcontribs) 11:26, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Done :) Slasher-fun (talk) 21:33, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. However these Provence services need to be placed before collapsible as they are no longer seasonal — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:20, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Excessive detailEdit

@Nathan A RF: There is not need to show the individual transit lines at an interchange station of an international service: the orders of magnitude and scales are too different. It's like showing full details for an insignificant rural level crossing on a cross-country trunk route (Oh, wait, you do that too). Useddenim (talk) 03:55, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Okay then; I won't ever contribute again. No detail to be added and all the route maps will look appalling because of the lack of detail. Why isn't a level crossing important as a river bridge? Why aren't river bridges as important as motorway crossings? Why aren't motorways as important as stations? If you don't want to add any detail, why don't you personally make every single route map include stations only. No, because that's what the 6000 icons in here are for. Can I just say what you don't like about my edits? The fact that they disrupt what you're (not) doing? Why do you have to change every single thing I do? Why are you stalking me online? Don't you have anything better to do? I'm unfortunately stuck at home trying to recover from a medical condition and I'm only 15. It's hard. So I go on Wikipedia. I would say more about you but I feel I'm the bigger man. If you want to make a change to a template, DO IT and please don't disrupt my (detailed) edits. Nathan A RF (talk) 06:27, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
