What is the relevance of a railway station? JoaoRicardo 01:23, 9 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Note that there are more where that came from. Gazpacho 02:03, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Needs work, but part of an ongoing project and already listed for Wikification. No reason to delete, unless you want to reopen the debate on Paris and London railway stations too. Andrewa 04:00, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • keep. Xtra 05:55, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, let it grow. Wyss 06:19, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep Lots of people are interested in railway stations. Delete these articles and they might leave and therefore never contribute to anything else. Philip 06:54, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Samaritan 10:16, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Plenty of articles on train stations around the world. Capitalistroadster 10:28, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Agree with Capitalistroadster. --JuntungWu 13:13, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. The articles on various British railway stations are interesting and useful, this has the potiential to be as well. Thryduulf 13:24, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Inherently notable as both public infrastructure and a major Sydney transport hub.--Centauri 13:32, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Seems rather short, (and pointless wittering shouldn't be added just to make a short to the point article a long, flabby and annoying article) but if there isn't an appropriate article to merge this with, then it should be kept separate. Average Earthman 17:00, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • abstain I believe that someone is intending to have short articles about all airports and train stations, etc. with the intention that you could use wikilinks to see how to get from one place to another. (I became aware of this when I was observing some apparently useless articles about New York City subway stations). Morris 19:03, Jan 12, 2005 (UTC)
  • We keep railway stations, even when they are just a platform and a hut, but we delete schools. How merry a place this is!Dr Zen 00:44, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Actually, plenty of schools are kept if they are sensible articles, deserve/have more than one/two lines and can't be merged with the parent location. zoney talk 14:13, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)
That would be all of them then. --Centauri 23:30, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Timetable info[edit]

According to the timetable effective from 4 Sept 2005, the only East Hills inbound trains stopping at Sydenham on weekdays are at 5am, 7.26, 7.41, 7.56 and 8.11am, and (except on Fridays) 11.59pm. To me this looks a lot like running in the morning peak only. JPD 11:40, 29 November 2005 (UTC)[]
