Railway Dictionary by Alan A. Jackson
Book DescriptionFully revised since its previous publication in 2000, "The Railway Dictionary" is an authoritative, wide-ranging reference work to guide both enthusiast and professional through the often specialist language that has developed during the long history of railways. International in scope, the dictionary covers all aspects of railway terminology, past and present. It defines terms specific to both railways and tramways and includes proper names of trains, lines, companies, periodicals and manufacturers, as well as clarifying a profusion of abbreviations. The dictionary also interprets in a clear and concise manner many foreign words and phrases, and the slang used by professionals and amateurs alike. Several hundred new entries have been added to this fourth edition, and many entries have been revised to take account of new terminology and developments in the railway industry.
