Welcome to WikiProject Transport in Scotland (previously titled and proposed as Transport around Edinburgh and Glasgow), a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of transportation in and around Scotland.

This page undergoes constant change and would welcome improvement

(For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects).

  • For the maintenance and expansion of articles related to transportation in Scotland but not serve as the primary factor.
  • Expansion of the to do list
  • This project will cover transport in and around Scotland, focussing on, for example, rail, air, rapid transit, ferries etc., their associated features and anything else that is applicable.


Although they are nowhere near absolute guidelines, we will try to follow the applicable guidelines from the Wikipedia:WikiProject Trains/Manual of style for our articles, as by doing so we will probably be most likely to get our articles to good-article or featured-article status most quickly.

Open tasksEdit

Please note that this is a start and this to do list needs expansion, as stated.

  To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Transport in Scotland: edit·history·watch·refresh· Updated 2007-08-16

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Consideration is required of the City Union Line. A basic history of this line has been provided from its creation as the City of Glasgow Union Railway to the closure of St Enoch. There is a brief of current use, and potential future use. It should also be noted that potential future use of this line is covered by the Glasgow Crossrail. This is based on the various schemes and studies that have been published over the past 20/30 years.

Anything applicable to the project that's already listed at Featured article candidates, Featured picture candidates, or Featured list candidates

Good contentEdit

Please feel free to add articles with GA status i.e. Good Articles


Please add those articles that are candidates to become Good Articles.

  • As well as the examples above, have a look at, for example Bristol Harbour & Somerset and their talk pages, as both show the type of work needed to bring good articles up to this standard and they are recent. (OK they are not in Scotland, but I helped work on them)
  • Caledonian Railway - B class - has the makings, but needs far more inline references and photos before it can be considered.
  • the same comments apply to Glasgow and South Western Railway.
  • British Rail Class 303 - B class - is another possibility, but needs far more inline references & I suspect we could all find more photos.
  • How about Wemyss Bay railway station - start class -, its a small article, it has architectural merit, its photogenic, there is a railway & steamer interchange, rivaly between Calley & G&SWR on land and water. It could be expanded as a team project.
  • Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway - B class - could possibly be another candidate, however it has a similar problem to GPK&AR in that its missing information on rolling stock. (GPK&AR was submitted for GA but failed, mainly for that reason) --Dreamer84 10:42, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Caledonian MacBrayne - B class - is another article with promise, its almost unreferenced at present.
  • Glasgow International Airport - B class - has the makings, but needs far more inline references and photos before it can be considered.

New articlesEdit

Please feel free to list your new project-related articles here (newer articles at the top, please). Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box the Main Page.

Project divisionsEdit


still in development.

Peer reviewEdit

still in development.


We are considering implementing assessments according to the Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Assessment parameters. If the members of this project would like to engage in such assessments, please indicate such on the talk page. Also, if we do engage in assessment, it may when we implement assessment be beneficial for us to determine which articles are of greatest importance to the project.

Project structureEdit

Many projects, particularly ones which do engage in assessments, have one or more project coordinators. These individuals will probably be the members most connected to the regular management of the project. Any members who believe they may qualify should feel free to nominate themselves.
