I have no particular problem with railway analogies -- the terminus
is the main station where the traincomes in, and has to go out backwards.
The plural may be either termini or terminuses -- both are accepted,
at least in British English .
The word also has some other, less familiar meanings. Well, maybe people
in America are less familiar with the obvious railway meaning? Would
"airport" be a better name instead?
