Pinging Vcohen. How can a side platform (tracks 1 and 4) adjacent to an express track (tracks 2 and 3) be shown as not used by the express track (other than inserting a white space between them)? Useddenim has suggested using   (BS SR) or   (BS SR white), but it doesn't seem to be clear enough. (This is shown at w:en:WP:Templates for discussion/Log/2015 June 21#Station layout templates (the original discussion); the Commons template doesn't seem to support overlaying multiple images.)

Well then, how about this? Useddenim (talk) 16:36, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Another option is to overlay the directional track arrows over the express tracks in the "middle" of the platforms while the local tracks just use them before and after the platforms. Lost on  Belmont 3200N1000W  (talk) 19:39, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, this is not the question I asked. These platforms, whether used or not, are island platforms. My question was about side platforms as opposed to island ones. The original discussion is here, and the configurations I am speaking about are shown in turquoise. Vcohen (talk) 20:19, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
I really don't understand what you're asking for. Please see w:en:WP:Templates for discussion/Log/2015 June 21#Relisted for more examples. Useddenim (talk) 22:57, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Vcohen seems to be of the opinion that in his/her templates side platforms are depicted as being radically different than island platforms and wants either a BSicon solution that doesn't just double the width of the platform, or to leave those templates on en alone. Personally, the side platforms in both Vcohen's templates and BSicon in just look like "half width versions" of island platforms. Lost on  Belmont 3200N1000W  (talk) 01:45, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
@Lost on Belmont, Vcohen: Is it something to do with the borders on the platforms of the SL diagrams? Could this be fixed by adding a blank gap between the express track and the side platform (like the diagram at w:zh:羅湖站 (香港), platform 1 and passing track to the left; in OpenStreetMap)?

You mean like this? Then why doesn't Vcohen just say so? (I think he's just looking for reasons to say “No”.) Useddenim (talk) 12:00, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
My diagrams have two tracks each, not four. Is it possible to build with BSicons something similar to my diagrams? Is this question so difficult? Vcohen (talk) 13:57, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

It's only as difficult as you make it… Useddenim (talk) 19:44, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Excuse me, I hate cross-posting. I don't want to say every word twice. If our discussion has started there, let's continue there. The diagrams you just posted have already been discussed. Excuse me once more. Vcohen (talk) 20:13, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

ridiculously broken diagram[edit]

Does anyone feel like fixing w:hr:Željeznička linija Savski Marof - Zagreb Glavni kolodvor - Dugo Selo? The rows are done manually at 25px and it's even got a few PNG icons in it to top it off. Jc86035 (talkcontributionsuploads) 09:17, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Documentation[edit]

@Useddenim, Tuvalkin, Axpde, Sameboat: Should the English Wikipedia's BSicon catalogue pages be imported to Commons and placed in subpages of this page? This would make it easier to update catalogue pages in different languages (there are several wikis which have copied the enwiki one and never updated theirs) due to the existence of language templates on Commons, and would just generally centralize more stuff here.

I'd prefer to import the German wikipedia's catalogue ... a×pdeHello! 14:56, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
@Axpde: Regardless of whether the Bilderkatalog is better than the complete catalogue, only the German Wikipedia (officially) is restricted to using a limited group of BSicons, as far as I'm aware. I don't think that would be helpful for most editors. Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}

Seems like a good idea. Translation (and the required templating) would be a big job, though. Useddenim (talk) 17:45, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
@Useddenim: I think it'd also be better to split the current pages by section, as a lot of them take a very long time to load. Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}

04:46, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Then I guess Step 1 would be to block out the pages and section headings. Useddenim (talk) 17:17, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
