Your choice of delivery:

This tour of the island’s former steam-operated lines gives, not only the joys of the splendid trains in full colour, but also the impressive changing scenery in its natural hues.

The author has intimate knowledge of this Manx line, having compiled four other splendid albums on the island systems.



'An informative well-illustrated book providing an excellent guide to those visiting the lines of the Island.'
(The Railway Observer, May 2017)

'Your reviewer must be one of very few British railway enthusiasts who has never been to the Isle of Man. However, if anything were to persuade him to change that situation it would be this fine book!'
(Ffestiniog Railway Magazine, Autumn 2017)
