Description

The Isle of Man has a rich heritage and once boasted the largest narrow gauge network in Britain with eight railways and tramways. ¬†Founded in 1870 and opened in 1874, the Isle of Man Railways still connects Douglas with the ancient capital of Castletown, and also with Port Erin. This part of the line continues in operation using several of the original steam locomotives and carriages, and Gordon Edgar’s collection of historic black and white archive images from the 1950s and 60s captures the microcosm of former times, with trains set amid the beautiful Manx countryside.
