Flåm Railway, Norway
A Class 17 electric locomotive of the Flåmsbana in Norway. This railroad connects the Myrdal station on the Bergen to Oslo line with Flåm on the Aurlandsfjord.
The picturesque rail line is about 12 miles long, but must negotiate a 2800 foot height difference between the two end stations in that distance. The gradient is just over 5.5 percent.
Because of the severe gradient the locomotives are heavily modified with redundent braking systems and the services are run with a locomotive at each end of the train.

A GM built diesel electric locomotive of the Irish Railways
I actually managed to get to the Welsh railway station reputedly sporting the longest name in the world.
Supposedly it means" Saint Maria church in the white hazel forest near the rapid whirlpool beside Saint Tysilio of the red cave"!
And they do make a nice cup of tea in the station restaurant.
