When is a cutting an embankment?

When I was a Boy Scout (a couple of years ago) I could tell the difference when looking at an OS map. I'd need to brush-up a bit now.

Written by a non railway person. Embankments and cuttings, over-bridges and under-bridges, it all
relates to the per-way. Doing research I come across reports for the NSWGR that have been written
by people who seem to have had very little understanding of what a train is.

Hi Matt,

But the RAIB is a respected railway body:

https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/rail-accident-investigation-branch

Their reports are important industry documents. Presumably they have proof readers and someone senior to sign off the reports?

On the other hand, there are a lot of dimwits about these days -- found in my fridge:

I was reading a draft of revision to state rules about waterways yesterday. It doesn't seem to be able to decide whether to use " navigable" or "navigational" :)

Context is everything. Cuttings and embankments are recognised formations. However in referring to detail an embankment can be the side of a cutting. What else do you call it, except maybe a bank?
