Railfan Terminology

Elephant Style – This term refers to the orientation of the locomotives pulling a train. If all engines are facing forward on the train (running nose to tail), they are said to be running elephant style, referring to the similarity to the way that elephants are paraded through during a circus.
Land Barge – A very long train.
LHF – Long Hood Forward. While locomotives such as the EMD GP-7 and GP-9 were originally all designed to run with the long hood forward, most modern locomotives are made to operate with the short hood forward. It is more rare today to see a train with the lead engine running LHF.
