Station Wagon
A STATION WAGON, also called an ESTATE CAR, ESTATE WAGON, or simply WAGON or ESTATE, is an automotive body-style variant of a sedan/saloon with its roof extended rearward over a shared passenger/cargo volume with access at the back via a third or fifth door (the liftgate or tailgate ), instead of a trunk lid. The body style transforms a standard three-box design into a two-box design — to include an A, B, and C-pillar , as well as a D-pillar. Station wagons can flexibly reconfigure their interior volume via fold-down rear seats to prioritize either passenger or cargo volume

It generally consists of at least one track -side platform and a station building (depot) providing such ancillary services as ticket sales and waiting rooms . If a station is on a single-track line, it often has a passing loop to facilitate traffic movements. The smallest stations are most often referred to as "STOPS" or, in some parts of the world, as "HALTS" (flag stops). Stations may be at ground level, underground, or elevated. Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other transport modes such as buses , trams or other rapid transit systems

Shooting-brake
A SHOOTING-BRAKE is a car body style that has evolved through several distinct meanings over its history. "Shooting-brake" originated as an early 19th century British term for a vehicle used to carry shooting parties with their equipment and game . The etymology of the term brake is uncertain; initially a chassis used to break in horses , and subsequently used to describe a motorized vehicle. It is also possible, that the word 'brake' has its origins in the Dutch word 'brik' which means 'cart ' or 'carriage '. The term was later applied to custom-built wagons by high-end coachbuilders and subsequently became synonymous with a station wagon or estate car . In contemporary usage, the term shooting-brake has broadened to include a range of vehicles from five-door station wagons — to three-door models combining features of a wagon and a coupé

This is an overview LIST OF DIALECTS OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. Dialects are linguistic varieties which may differ in pronunciation , vocabulary , spelling and grammar .

Estate (land)
Historically an ESTATE comprises the houses and outbuildings and supporting farmland and woods that surround the gardens and grounds of a very large property, such as a country house or mansion . It is the modern term for a manor , but lacks the latter's now abolished jurisdictional authority. It is an "estate" because the profits from its produce and rents are sufficient to support the household in the house at its center, formerly known as the manor house . Thus "the estate" may refer to all other cottages and villages in the same ownership as the mansion itself, covering more than one former manor. Examples of such great estates are Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire
