The trouble with having an international interest in
railroads railways is what word to use. Is it:
- Railway or railroad
- Shunt or switch
- Coach or passenger car
- Wagon or car
- Van or boxcar
- Tram or trolley…. and so on?
But when you see a sign like this! Context is everything. Understandable at the end of a passenger car, but not quite right when nailed to a station building…..
