Leadhills And Wanlockhead Railway
This narrow gauge railway operates between Scotland's highest villages, Leadhills and Wanlockhead.
The railway has been built on the track-bed of the erstwhile Caledonian Railway branch line which ran from Elvanfoot to Wanlockhead and was opened in 1901 and closed in 1938.
Explore the lead mining museum at Wanlockhead and marvel at the skills of the lead miners who dug their shafts to below sea level and excavated miles of tunnels in their search for lead ore and silver.
Look around the station at Leadhills with its collection of locomotives preserved from the industrial world.
