My classical education is pretty weak to be honest but I know just about enough to realise that ‘ferro‘ is related to iron and ‘equin‘ is about horses. Hence ferroequinologist or train (ie iron horse) buff or railway enthusiast, or even ‘anorak’ if you are feeling harsh! I will suggest we rename our little shop area in the ticket office: ‘Ferroequinologist’s Corner’ – if we can find a sign board long enough.
My fellow ferroequinologists today included Dave G, Chris, Ian, Roger, Bob, John L, Pete, Mike and Maurice. Very healthy turn out for any day, never mind a Monday. They were, in no particular order, painting, fencing, gravelling, posting and gardening.
Good effort for a bunch of practical ferrequinologists
All is well, all is well.
PS: Must look up the Latin for someone who is into gravel and fences.
