Additional information is always gratefully received, whether entirely new records (particularly historical records) or information to fill in gaps or correct errors, via the contact link under the Miscellaneous entry in the navigation bar above. Thank you.

Please select a feature from the list below:

These lists show all known instances of languages other than English officially used on British, Manx and Irish railway stations. Additionally, a small selection of overseas stations that display bilingual signs that include English are shown.

Details are taken from the signs displayed at stations where known. Other sources (timetables, etc.) are noted. Please note that the exact form of some names has changed over the years; where variations are known they are shown here. All names known are shown here, regardless of whether a station has since been renamed or closed. Many names have a hyperlink to an image.

It will be seen that Handforth station has a large selection of languages represented. The station's 'friends' group is active in securing a wide variety of signs, which are illustrated on this page.
