Santa Origins: The Dummy Line - What's a dummy train? (47) RE: What's a dummy train 26 Aug 08


Slightly adrift, but can I refer you to British railway practice, and Stanley Accrington's song which mentions "the Delph donkey", referring to a local train.

In the modern RAF, Donk is slang for an engine, as in "That Tonka's donk is duff." No prizes for anyone who understands it, and my apologies for hijacking the thread, but it did sem to have run its course.
