The toes of England hold a remarkable selection of steam and related centres. Some of them reflect the industrial heritage of the area. Others the tourist locations.

The Great Western Railway is well represented, particularly with a museum in Plymouth. A collection of miniature railways and the interesting cliff railways offer a good variety of days out for local residents and visitors, families and enthusiasts alike.

Make sure not to miss the West Somerset Railway in Minehead - at almost 23 miles, the longest in the UK - and its ten restored stations.
