Manx Electric Railway Tunnel car 5 makes its way past the Laxey car sheds whilst in use as a wire car with the engineering department. Emergency repairs to the overhead saw the car temporarily taken off normal service to move trailer 52 (with the overhead tower) to the problem area. Later in the day car 5 would resume normal service. Trailer 52 had been new as a passenger trailer in 1893, one of the initial batch of trailers for the MER, but later had seats and roof removed, being permanently allocated to the per-way department.
Car 19 entered the works for a much needed overhaul at the end of the 1995 season. 19 is seen in the Hospital Roads of Derby Castle Works during February 1996, stripped of side framework and panelling to permit the renewal of window pillars. At the same time 19’s trucks had been rolled out to undergo rewheeling and overhaul. Following a lengthy rebuild, 19 took to the rails again in July 1996.
Winter Photography 2014 on the IMR Saturday 8th March saw the third run of the 'Winter Photography' event on the steam railway. This year was the first occasion where the train took in the entire length of the line, with various stops and run-pasts en route. The formation used was 1874 loco 4 Loch with 'Small Fs' F18, F9 and F26, F26 and F9 both having been repainted during the winter, and all now sporting the black skirt livery. The highlight of the day must have been a rare double head running, the photography tarin merging with the 15:50 ex-Port Erin service train as far as Castletown. Now formed up for the double header Loch and Hutchinson are seen at Port Erin.
