which would be the station in wales:

'Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch'

which means The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave.

hope that helps :)

It's really a station name - take a look in the thread in the Mess Room.

Welsh is a great language.

Who's the first to tell me what "Dim Parkio" means?
