What do you call train cars? Went through an old Pullman car the other day with two guys from the UK, they said they call most train cars pullman's, do you?

I would tend to call them 'Coaches' or 'Carriages'. Sometimes it depends on local dialects as well. I am a Cockney, originally from East London. ( I do a better accent than Dick Van Dyke did in Mary Poppins )

Ah ok it was just interesting to me that e would say that, I mean tissues= Kleenex, bandage = band-aid (at least here in the states) but I never think train car= Pullman
Oh and coach to me means bus , I work onboard motor coaches

Tend to agree on some of those.

Band-Aid = Plaster (as in Sticking Plaster)

I also use coach for a single deck bus. Bus tends to refer to the double-deck London buses (short for Omnibus (look it up))

I tend to be bi-lingual as we spend a lot of time in Canada with my cousin and his wife. She was born there and he has lived there since he was four. I'm trying to teach her Cockney Rhyming Slang. Cockney rhyming slang - expressions and meanings which she is struggling with.

Right coach is a single deck bus
I call double deck buses top decks , (the company that manufactures them for the US market calls them TD925 and the td is for top deck)

If we carry on like this Mate, we may well succeed where others have failed in getting Brits and Americans to actually understand each other.

No need to hide. What always throws me is what my wife calls a handbag, my cousin calls a purse. What my wife calls a purse, my cousin calls a wallet.

Perhaps the Canadians are throwing a spanner (wrench) in the works

Canadians have yet another version of English. With some French influence depending on the region.

Bugger Me!!!! It's getting confusing now.

Perhaps we should stick to Wranglers, at least that is a common language (except that mine is a right-hand-drive).

I'm going to thank you for a pleasant conversation and bid you Good Night. It's almost midnight here and I need to get some rest.

Take care and I'll catch you again.

Steve.
