Book review

by Alan A Jackson

THE FOURTH edition of this wide-ranging reference work has been updated with around 1550 new or revised entries to reflect changes since the last edition was published in 2000.

Assisted by members of the Railway & Canal Historical Society, the author has put together a wide range of railway terminology, acronyms and slang from around the world. Running from the Antrofagasta (Chile) & Bolivia Railway to Zulu Warrior, the 400-page book includes a number of French and German terms, but there is a natural predominance of English-language entries from the UK and North America.
