Thread Name: Folklore: Railroad tracks
Subject: RE: BS: Railroad tracks
Thanks BSeed that's fascinating. In Russian the word for railroad station is vauxhall. Why? Because when the russians wanted to build a railroad station engineers went to Endgland to study them. They liked Vauxhall station in London so all railraod stations were called Vauxhall. I picked that little tidbit up the one year that I tried to study Russian.
