From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Usage[change source]

All parameters are necessary with the exception of those marked :

Image section[change source]

  • image – name of the image file (e.g. Train-disaster-photo.jpg).
  • image_width – width of image; default is 282px.
  • image_alt – alternative text describing the image (see Wikipedia:Alternative text for images).
  • caption – a caption to explain the image, if needed (not to state the obvious).

Details section[change source]

  • title – name of the rail incident, usually the same as the title of the article
  • date – date of the incident in plain text (e.g. 1 January 1980 or January 1, 1980; depending on local custom)
  • time – time of the incident
  • location – location (suburb) of where the incident occurred, wiki-linked for convenience if necessary (e.g. [[Camp Mountain, Queensland]])

    Location placement[change source]

    The following should all be used together, however location-dist (or location-dist-mi) is the element to cause this to work/appear:

    • location-dist – direct distance (not rail distance) from capital city as a plain number, limited to two decimal points (e.g. 49.53, 49.5 or 50; no need to be too accurate with decimal points if distance is some hundreds of kilometers away, e.g. 349 not 349.1)
      • location-dist-mi – as above, but where metric measurements are not used; will return a conversion of miles into kilometers
    • location-dir – direction from capital city as a simple letter abbreviation (e.g. N, NW or NNW)
    • location-city – name of capital city of the state the incident occurred in, wiki-linked and piped if necessary for convenience (e.g. [[Brisbane]] or [[Perth, Western Australia|]]) – pipe the location if the link contains the country, and use country below
  • country – provide the country
  • line – railway line the incident occurred on, wiki-linked and piped for convenience if an article has been created for it (e.g. [[Metra Electric Line]])
  • operator – operator of the train in the incident
  • type – type of incident (e.g. Derailment)
  • cause – cause of the incident if officially found/released (e.g. Excessive speed)

Statistics section[change source]

  • trains – number of trains involved in the incident
  • pax – number of passengers on-board
  • deaths – number of deaths due to the incident (usually passengers on the train and crew)
  • injuries – number of injured due to the incident (usually passengers on the train and crew)
  • damage – damage caused by the incident

Route map section[change source]

  • map - bottom section for map image, no shorthanded codes provided like the image parameter, so you need to write the complete file embedding syntax to display the image or video. If you want to instead display the map created by en:Project:Route diagram templates, begin the map with {{BS-table3}} and end it with {{!}}}. For indicating the crash site, you can overlay the spot with Unknown BSicon "INCIDO" (INCIDO) icon.
  • map_name - map section title. "Route map" by default.
  • map_state - collapsing state of the map section. Shown by default, entry collapsed to default hidden map section when the page is loaded. This entry MUST come after map parameter to be functional.

Coordinates[change source]

Use, for example, {{Coord|-27.3972|152.8956||display=inline,title}} to provide the coordinates of where the incident occurred. When using |display=inline,title, as in this example, these coordinates will be displayed in the infobox, and at the top of the article, above the infobox. If the article is not about the rail accident described in the template, omit title use only |display=inline.
