The Grumpy Old Sod wishes to make it quite clear that there is no such thing in the British Isles as a "train station". He is sick and tired of hearing this American expression in the media, in television and radio news broadcasts, and increasingly in everyday speech. He even heard it while watching an episode of "Heart Beat" on the television last week, and would like to tell the script writers that in the 1950s no-one had even heard of a "train station".
In this country, the place where trains stop so that you can get on or off is called a RAILWAY STATION.
Now, let that be the end of it.
