Pictures for Today


Video of last weekends action (GHW)

Three new box vans for the DLR. On the right is the latest Atropos Schull and Skibbereen, complete with sliding doors. The other two were bought from the member to member sales at the AGM. I have 'Irished' them up.  (DP)
Empress Van, the perfect beginers IOM coach, only 8 windows compared to the standard 36. Originally built to handle the booming "Advance Luggage" market for the then vibrant tourist industry, when they would be attached to trains out of Douglas packed to the roof with suitcases bound for hotels in the outlying resorts.
These were actually used as ambulance coaches during the TT when road access to the hospital was impossible due to racing believe it or not!
The last use was for a mobile PW mess room

Don't forget the "Search" box above!
It allows you to search this site and works well.
