North York Moors Historic Railway. Yorkshire.  England

This line runs across the Yorkshire moors from Pickering to Whitby. Built in 1836 by George Stephenson, the engineer who built the first loco to carry passengers on a public rail line, it is now, like other branch lines in Britain only 10-20 miles long, a 'heritage' line. It is questionable whether being pulled by a steam train & watching the Yorkshire countryside go past out of the windows is any different, whatever the rolling stock. But the dedication to keeping it running is admirable.
