I spent the weekend just gone over on the Isle of Man, principally to visit friends and get some high speed riding in on the TT course before the weather gets too bad, but I found time to call in to Douglas train station to snap a few shots of the steam railway... enjoy!

The people that keep it looking lickity smick must groan everytime it fires up.
Look at all the brass and copper let alone the paint work.:Doh:

Nice shots.

Noticed the oil and grease stains on the track ballast, nice addition to tracks in stations.

I visited the Isle of Man about 25 years ago.  Looks like little has changed (and this is a good thing).  It had the steam railway, a working horsecar line (maybe the last public operation in the world?), a narrow gauge interurban and a standard gauge trolley climbing the summit of a mountain.  Wonderful place!

Too many American modelers dismiss any non US railroading as being something of no interest to them.

Perhaps, like Isley Scotch, it's an acquired taste.

Where else in the world could you find a driver (engineer, to us) wearing colo(u)r coordinated hearing protection?

I agree with you Herbert, or 'Erbert as the case may be. I love those tiny narrow gauge lines no matter where they be. Remember-"if it's not Scottish, it's crrrrrap!"
