On August 17, 2019, there was a sci-fi event going on named "Sci-Fi on the sidings" happening at the East Lancashire Railways

Klingon station names

For their event, they had the station names replaced by Klingon signs.(1) These were translated by klingonist Lieven L. Litaer.(2) The Klingon signs are actually more a transcription than a translation, because most of them are just names. The Klingon station names were not only seen at the stations, but also on the printed event's timetable.

Only one of the names was not transcribed by Lieven Litaer, and its translation is a bit awkward: "Bury transport museum" is written as be'wly lup qun Daq, obviously ignoring that there is a word for museum 'angweD and with a lower case L instead of an upper case I.

As they are not created nor approved by Marc Okrand, these words are not considered canon.
