Just discovered today why trains are “stabled” and not parked in train sheds/depots...

Apparently it goes back to the days when people only had the option of horse/horse and cart for travelling, so after their journey the horses were stabled, so when the trains came along, the term was carried over for their use.
There’s a few instances where horse related terminology is carried over to the new variant. I believe there is still a car sales place named Hexham Horseless Carriages.

I told my dad (70 odd) a joke the other day. He laughed his bollocks off until I reminded him that it was one of his old jokes from when I was a bairn. He stopped laughing when the realisation kicked in that his memory is now shit.

I felt bad about it afterwards like.
