To get the best flavour of travel in a bygone age, it helps to be able to take a nice long journey in an authentically restored train.
These railways all have a track at least ten miles long. At a maximum speed of 25mph, and allowing for the time taken at stations, that gives a journey of at least 30 minutes, allowing you to experience train travel as it used to be.
