Back in 1973 the Isle of Man Steam Railway celebrated its centenary.


Various special trains were run over the weekend at the beginning of July. Here one of the 2-4-0 Beyer Peacock tanks poses at Douglas prior to working one of the special trains on 1st July.

As you can see, there was a splendid turnout of folk dressed in Victorian era costume.



This is No 4, "Loch" at Port Erin

          And here at Ballasalla

No 13 "Kissack" near Douglas


Nos 11,  "Maitland", 13 "Kissack" and 10 "G.H. Wood" at Douglas

No 4. Loch, at Port Erin


This is the most wonderful eccentricity. A sort of hangover of the days of the "Inter Urban" tramway. It runs from Douglas to Ramsey along the East side of the island. At Laxey, where both these views were taken in 1973, it connects with the Snaefell Mountain Railway, oneof whose cars can be seen on the right of the picture below.
