Reading Railroad Heritage Museum

Reading Railroad Heritage Museum (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: Google (books · news · newspapers · scholar · free images · WP refs· FENS · JSTOR · NYT · TWL)

This is a non-notable small local museum, open just a few hours per week. There is no significant coverage in reliable independent sources. Currently the references are local news coverage (the museum will put up Christmas lights this year), the organization's own website, and a Facebook page. Beyond that, WP:BEFORE turns up little more than directory listings and other non-significant coverage. Peacock (talk) 15:03, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Keep. See refs at 1, 2 and 3. Mccapra (talk) 19:04, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Keep It seems easy to find detailed coverage such as this. Deletion would not be sensible as there's such an obvious alternative: merger with Reading Railroad. Andrew D. (talk) 09:56, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep: Notable as per above. SL93 (talk) 23:10, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Physical infrastructure. scope_creepTalk 00:41, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep - has accrued coverage in local media and one print source, and so likely meets WP:GNG.--SamHolt6 (talk) 21:06, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete Those sources look like the hyper-local papers, and are not significant (much less independent) anyway. Rockphed (talk) 12:40, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete: An article on a two-year old organisation about which very little can be found beyond social media. I had thought to suggest a selective merge of information about their annual rally into the Great Harwood article (which is rather threadbare), but even for that some WP:RS coverage is wanting. AllyD (talk) 17:03, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
  • We are a small business based in Lancashire who are in the process of registering to become a charity. We host events in the local area in partnership with Hyndburn council and Amazing Accrington. We have over 30 voulnteers and put countless hours into restoring buses as a group. This Wikipedia article goes alongside our website to give people a bit of knowledge behind who we are and what we do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.205.192.102 (talk) 18:07, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
