Heritage Railway magazine deputy editor Gareth Evans enjoyed a visit to the Isle of Man on April 8-10, 2019.
In issue No. 254 [BUY NOW], Gareth’s six-page feature provided an overview of what the Isle of Man can offer railway enthusiasts and he also learned about the latest developments on the system, including the story behind the turnaround of the system’s fortunes in recent years – plus the return to steam of 2-4-0T No. 16 Mannin.
Here is a selection of photos from Gareth’s trip which we didn’t have space for in the printed article but we thought you might be interested in.
