attached a directly printed version of the web page.

This is a whole long page written by @KagurazakaYukari and me. Currently, we're working on an English version of that, I'll show you the preface of the work:

 

Since this book is for people who know nothing about railways, this book only talks about some general concepts and definitions. And it assumes all readers never take a train or go on a journey by train. Therefore, you may find some unprofessional descriptions of certain ideas or terms.

I don’t like to throw out all terms you will use at first. So, I’ll try to use some personal views and explanations to help you understand these words better.

This book has seven parts:

The first part is the basic concept you should know, like signals, interlock, turnout, etc.

The second part is the terms used in driving, for example, you will learn about locomotives, EMU/DMU, and batteries.

The third part is for dispatchers. We’ll talk about what to say, timetables, priorities, left-track operations, and related things.

The fourth part is some terms for operation, like delay and early, and all kinds of failures.

The fifth part is a basic introduction to Polish Railways, like the meaning of train numbers, train codes, and the current situation.

The last two parts will contain a very detailed tutorial on driving and dispatching. Also, there is a simple page for you to learn how to pronounce the Polish alphabet.
