How to Contribute to the Metro - Rail Fans Website

Calling all Rail Fans! We are looking for passionate volunteer contributors to write pages on the STM Montreal Metro stations. Learn more and signal your interest.

To join and help out, please send us an email at media@railfans.ca


Hello all.

This topic is for general information on how to submit content for the new sites, as well as what we are looking for in regards to text and photos. This post will be updated if new information or clarification is needed. Feel free to ask questions below.

1. Planning.

For planning purposes, I have created this article, for the purposes of completing the new sites. You will find a list of all the articles needing to be created, for the Trains, the Stations and the Lines. 

2. Creating Content.

For all of the articles, I do invite you to visit O-Train Fans otrain.railfans.ca to get an idea of how the articles should be put together. For the trains, the Alstom Citadis Spirit article is a good example, and for the stations, the Parliament station is another example. For stations, it is broken down into an Overview, Unique Features and Public Artwork. There is also space for some details on the station Public Artwork.

3. Submitting Content.

Submitting content is easy. Shane (myself) will handle the posting to the website to ensure consistency and formatting. You can send me via email (media@railfans.ca) your text. I do ask that you send separate emails for each station.

Final Thoughts

I hope the information above is helpful, but should you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you again for your interest in helping build Rail Fans together.
