Fair enough. It's just that Esperanto is by and large considered a
failed language attempt. Seems a waste of time to learn it. Sort of
like learning Klingon.
If there isn't an Esperanto word for something, there are rules as to
how to make one up. Do you have the grammar texts?
I'll just say that for those who know the language, it's not a
failure. The internet has really allowed us to easily network.
I've got lots of grammar texts. I was looking for another Esperantist
Model Railroader to help form more of a consensus. Straight
translators have rarely given me a better answer than one I came up
with after some considerable thought.
I suspect the OP wants to 'practice' his language skills as they relate
to railroading. In terms of how railroading terminology would
'translate' to Esperanto, as in how one might refer to things on a
railroad in Esperanto or express various railroading situations in

I was looking for a model railroader, such as myself, who also spoke
Esperanto so that we could come up with a sort of glossary of model
railroading terms together. I can do it myself, pretty much, but I
was hoping for some outside input.
I model the Lackawanna Sussex Branch in HO. I've got 2 2foot by 4
foot modules of Franklin and Andover stations and a layout in progress
with Netcong, Newton and Branchville planned. I like to run short
freights and milk trains.
