Excellent book - very detailed and easy to understand.
Also to note that this book and its updated edition is used by the RAIB as the official source for all railway terms used in their report.
Just think the best terms listed is 'Tea' :)

This is the best dictionary for railway terms I ever found. I learnt why fish plate is called fish plate.
Before buying this book I spend a lot of money on other railway dictionaries. Now I don't
need any other railway dictionary.
I strongly propose to buy this book if you are looking for railway dictionaries.
