Category:Fictional trains[edit]

Redundant category. Should be merged with Category:Fictional locomotives. Norman Rogers 00:50, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)

The articles in Category:Fictional trains are trains, not locomotives, and vice-versa. I'm not voting yet, but I don't think this is a simple "redundant". -- Rick Block 04:16, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Keep. Few things *&^%$ me off more than people who can't tell the difference between trains and locomotives. [[User:Grutness|Grutness talk ]] 12:26, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Keep Trains include but are not the same as locomotives, I would make fictional locomotives a subcategory of fictional trains (which will make it easier for the people who *&^%$ off Grutness to find them :) Sortior 15:34, Nov 29, 2004 (UTC)
Keep and explain the difference between a train and what pulls a train on the respective category pages.
  • If this is to be kept, the difference needs to be explained on the category pages, and someone who knows the difference (Grutness?) should monitor the categories. Whether it is correct or not, the two words are often used interchangeably by laypersons, so you can safely guess that there will be mis-categorization. Also, these both should fit into the Category:Fictional scheme somewhere. -[[User:Aranel|Aranel ("Sarah")]] 18:16, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)

A "train" by definition is a locomotive with zero or more cars and marker lights at the rear. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.109.1.136 (talk) 22:30, 21 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
