    "Cuaderno ferrocarril" is in my country a kind of notebook that teachers ask kindergarten children´s parents to buy to teach them how to write; (tiene dos líneas muy unidas y luego un espacio grande), is there a translation in English for this kind of notebook?

    I know what you're referring to but we simply call it a "notebook". You can call it a "writing notebook" to make it more specific if you like.

    They are hand-writing notebooks to help small children to start drawing lines first and then letters. In my country they are called "cuaderno de caligrafía". "cuaderno ferrocarril" sounds interesting to me: Any relation with trains, for instance?

    A double-line book perhaps? Something like this.
