Some notes on my preferred mode of transport.
a person who has an interest in trains or trams - sometimes to the exclusion of all else. …The term originated in Victoria in the mid 1970s, and was then highly derogatory (equivalent of USA foamite/foamer or UK anorak). It is bit by bit gaining acceptance however.
seat61 is a handy reference for anyone who wants to try to catch a train around the world.
