Isle of Man Victorian Steam Railway
Having visited the Isle of Man at least once a year, and sometimes more, from 1966 to 1975 for the motorcycle races how could I possibly not visit this delightful railway. It has quite a chequered history which can be found on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Man_Steam_Railway The remaining section runs from Douglas to Port Erin, a journey of some 15 miles, and is now run by the Manx Department of Transport.
It is an absolute delight and is only one of several old forms of transport still active in the island including horse trams and the Electric Railway.
(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions. This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)
