Glossary


This section is not intended to be a complete list of railway terminology, there are plenty of other sources available, especially on the internet. Rather it is a collection of notes and explanations for terms used elsewhere in this Stockbook Website. Sometimes this may simply be in place of using the same explanation on two different entries!

These pages are under construction as time permits.
