'Waterloo International' needs removing

Internations trains no longer serve Waterloo, this station needs removing from the template. I have no experience of editing rail network templates though so could somebody oblige? Thanks a_boardley (talk) 09:08, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

I see now that by the legend this line is actually marked 'not in use' so that's fine, although I wonder therefore if it is owrth keeping there at all as the international terminal is being redeveloped as domestic? Or wait until it is set up as domestic before changing? Also, there is a Waterloo -- Waterloo East line here marked 'not in use' but a look at map and aerial photographs (try Google Maps) shows no such link, not even an expired one. Can somebody with more knowledge of the situation review this whole template? Thanks a_boardley (talk) 09:16, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
The Waterloo-Waterloo East line ran through the main concourse and followed almost exactly the route of the present walkway/footbridge between the two stations, so the diagram is correct - it's just that no physical remains are obviously left. I say leave Waterloo International in, but 'not in use' until it's got trains running from it again. --Peeky44 What's on your mind? 11:57, 10 September 2009 (UTC)


Perhaps Blackfriars Bridge railway station (on the ex-bridge) and Blackfriars Road railway station (next to Waterloo East)? --Rumping (talk) 01:39, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Thameslink and Blackfriars

As the through lines are now on the east (downstream) side of the station, consideration should be given to adjusting the template accordingly. Also if closed station are being displayed (i.e. Waterloo International), what about Holborn Viaduct? --Stewart (talk | edits) 09:33, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Holborn Viaduct

Should Holborn Viaduct be added as the closed extension north from Blackfriars. --Stewart (talk | edits) 20:14, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Difficult to read

The cluster of links, some of which are presented vertically while referring to a horizontal line, lower down this template than "Blackfriars Road (1864-1868)" is really difficult to follow — even as someone with a relatively good understanding of the local geography.

Perhaps another column of labels could be added on the left, to make this easier to read? Or the horizontal rail line could be oriented diagonally to make labels less ambiguous? — OwenBlacker (talk) 18:48, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

1 Elephant & Castle
2 Blackfriars Bridge (1864–1885)
3 Blackfriars
4 City Thameslink
@OwenBlacker: I've tried, but I'm not sure how the directions at the bottom were supposed to be split, and I'm not sure it's actually better. Maybe the Thameslink stations would be clearer if they were marked with numbers? Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}

@Jc86035: Ooh, that's a good idea. Aside from the colour-contrast of the "2", that looks way clearer. Thank you! — OwenBlacker (talk) 16:44, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
@OwenBlacker: I've updated the diagram; do you think it'd be better if all the labels were on one row? Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}
