Description

The Isle of Man, isolated in the Irish Sea, has always had fascinating transport systems, beginning with the steam ships that took passengers across the waves, but this book will focus on the island's unique railways, which have crossed the beautiful scenery of the island for well over one hundred years. The Isle of Man Railway, operating historic rolling stock powered by steam, has operated continuously for over 140 years. By way of a wide selection of beautiful images taken and collected by the author, this book will evoke memories of the heyday of the railways, from the glorious years of steam to the more modern electric trains.show more
