Expanded Description:
Scenic or Tourist Railroads

Scenic or tourist railroads can be found worldwide. They operate on all gauges of railway and have rolling stock that date from the 19th centaury to the present. Track lengths vary from 1.5 to 70 miles and primarily offer short train rides on a route that is considered historic or scenic. These tracks carry Full sized locomotives, coaches, railcars, gang cars, and other rolling stock. Some offer brunch, lunch, or dinner as part of the excursion while others offer murder mysteries or train robbery reenactments.

You do not have to ride the train to place or visit waymarks in this category.

RailServe and Tourist Railways both have searchable databases for North American and international tourist railways.
If you have questions regarding a potential waymark feel free to contact our group in the Scenic Railroads forum thread.
