"U trinighellu" (lit.: the trembler) is it called, the little train connecting Bastia and Ajaccio (via Corte) and Calvi. It has only 110 seats. I went on a scenic railway from Bastia to Ajaccio, which lasted four hours. Mostly standing, as I wanted to enjoy the views! You come through lovely landscape, the mountains, and remote villages. Sometimes you wonder how the little trembler can manage to go to such an altitude :). Apart from the regular stops there are some optional as well, I think you have to tell the driver in advance to stop there. One way from Bastia to Ajaccio costs about 23 EUR.
