Spotter as in train Spotter. You may not have them, but here in the UK you often see people in Anoraks gathered around a railway platform waiting to get the number of the next train passing through. For some its a passion greater than anything else. Nothing better than to clock the 4.15 from Grimsby on a wet Saturday morning in October!

And 4-6-0 is an example of the wheel layout for locomotives 4 wheels in the front, 6 larger ones under the boiler and 0 or none at the rear.
