    A question popped up in another forum I participate in. "What is the collective noun for trains?"

    You know, a gaggle of geese, a parliament of owls etc.

    Is it a toot of trains???? What is it?

    Hmmmmm

    Well, seriously, I think it would be "fleet." You can have a fleet of cars, a fleet of trucks, a fleet of ships, and a fleet for trains. I think I've actually seen that term used for trains, too.

    But I think a "chooch" of trains sounds better.
