    Apologies if this important subject has been discussed before ... I may have missed it.

    Did you know the following stations have bilingual station signs?

    Ashford
    London St Pancras
    Moreton-in-Marsh
    Southall
    Wallsend Metro

    Can you guess the other language (apart from English)?

    Just taken a look at your link ... the vast majority are Scottish or Welsh or Irish or Manx.

    In other words NOT English stations.

    Hey, haven't you got a baby coming today? Why are you asking about railway stations?

    Hope all goes well.

    Railway trivia has taken a back seat for too long.
    Besides baby isn't due for another 15 hours.

    Wallsend Metro is more unusual!
    Can you guess?
    The "Wall" in Wallsend is Hadrian's Wall.
