Default Favourite Regional & Shortline

As the Title says.

What is your favourite Regional RR and Shortline RR?

My favourite Regional - Utah Railway Company
My favourite Shortline - St. Maries River Railroad

I just love the fact that the RR (StMRRR) operates over former MILW track, their rolling stock is all former MILW (apart from the caboose's) and their main Customer and Tonnage is Logs. You don't see much Log trains in North America, where as down here in New Zealand, it is a common site along the East Coast & Northland regions.

as for the Utah Rail Co., well, what else can you say about a Regional RR operating up & over Soldier Summit apart from "brilliant"!.
