Superb experience, but not a "quaint preserved" line. If you like industrial railways, this is the one. And (at least it was a few years ago) it is free (but donations were gladly received). Warning : don't go on a hot day. as the noise & heat from the works is a bit much. But you won't get the chance anywhere else (& maybe here not much longer) to get up close & personal with a hot rolling mill (from the safety of the train) or a iron carrying "torpedo". Friendly volunteers. Top marks to them & Corus for letting this happen.
