With the old­est train net­work in the world in Bri­tain, our lan­guage is lit­tered with rail­way ref­er­ences on a daily ba­sis… Hit the buf­fers Sud­denly reach an un­suc­cess­ful end. Go off the rails Start be­hav­ing badly with a lack of con­trol. The gravy train An easy way to a lu­cra­tive liv­ing. Let off steam Re­lease en­ergy or emo­tion. On the right track On course to yield good re­sults. Full steam ahead A whole­hearted ap­proach. Stop some­one in their tracks Halt progress im­me­di­ately.
