The Ankh-Morpork and Sto Plains Hygienic Railway is a company joint owned by Harry King and Dick Simnel. Since Raising Steam, it has lines to Sto Lat, Scrote, Quirm, The Netherglades, and even Bonk. It is also known simply as the "Sto Plains Hygienic Railway" or even just "The Railway."


It was joint-founded in Ankh-Morpork by Harry King and Dick Simnel, with the assistance of Mister Thunderbolt, who acted as both mediator and lawyer[1]. At first providing rides on their only engine, Iron Girder, the railway soon expanded their fleet and set out to Sto Lat. Later, lines out through the Quirmian Maquis and into the Netherglades were added. After pressure from Lord Vetinari, they finally set out to Überwald.
