(EN) – Glossary of rail transport terms | Wikipedia


Rail terminology is a form of technical terminology. The difference between the American term railroad and the international term railway (used by the International Union of Railways and English-speaking countries outside the US) is the most significant difference in rail terminology. There are also others, due to the parallel development of rail transport systems in different parts of the world.

Various global terms are presented here; where a term has multiple names, this is indicated. The abbreviation “UIC” refers to standard terms adopted by the International Union of Railways in its official publications and thesaurus.
