For transport enthusiasts and trainspotters, visiting the Don River Railway is a must-do. The railway is the last remaining bastion of rail-based transport in operation today. It’s all vintage locomotives at Don River, with visitors getting an opportunity to ride the historic line on either a steam train (on Sundays only) or a vintage railcar, along the banks of the Don River. Entirely run by volunteers, the train ride is picturesque and exciting for any train lovers.
