Isle of Man Railway
At one time the system covered over 45 miles which when you think about it was quite a considerable amount on an island as small as the Isle of Man.
I loved the way the line still uses the original historic rolling stock and marvellous locomotives and there are few concessions to the modern way of running a railway. The main point is though is that is not just a piece of heritage railway for the tourists as it is still used by the local population on a regular basis. We spoke to school children, people doing their shopping and one unlucky person going to the dentist!
