Proposed rename to Category:Industrial electric locomotives of the United Kingdom[edit]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose — For geographic, political and technical reasons, Category:Locomotives of Ireland is an all-Ireland category. Therefore with locomotives of Northern Ireland in the above, it makes more sense to have Locomotives of [Great] Britain, than to have Locomotives of the United Kingdom [of Great Britain and Northern Ireland]. The subcategories for electric locomotives and industrial locomotives follow the same logic, as does the intersection of the nominated category. Iain Bell (talk) 10:51, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

If you want to change the whole category tree Transport in the United Kingdom, Rail transport in the United Kingdom, Rolling stock of the United Kingdom, Locomotives of the United Kingdom, you can to propose it, but i think, it was discussed and resolved sufficiently. It would better to make this one category compatible with the parent categories and category tree. Most of categories of Britain are redirected to categories of United Kingdom, the category Category:Great Britain contains no similar subcategories. Themes of United Kingdom (excluding rivers) are divided - if they are - by its internal countries (England, Walles, Scotland, Northern Ireland), not by islands. --ŠJů (talk) 12:45, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Category:Locomotives of Ireland is incorrectly named and applied RoI and NI should be used, mistakes over there shouldn't mean we do it wrong over here, NI has it's own subcat and isn't bothering UK cats much Oxyman (talk) 13:03, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
