White painted Isle of Man Railway diesel locomotive 18 AILSA stands alongside Douglas station platform having just shunted carriage F10 from the carriage shed.

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.

A bedecked Douglas horse tram 42 makes its way 'wrong line' along Douglas promenade during the town's carnival procession on August 19, 1984.

With Brook Lodge house in the background fully laden Manx Electric Railway cars 27 and 37 head towards Laxey on a special working during August 1984, complete with brown painted trucks, running boards and plastic stick on lettering. Today both cars remain in store out of use.

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.

Good Friday 1996 and first trip out for freshly repainted Winter Saloon Car 20. By the time Ramsey had been reached the overgrown vegetation in the vicinity of Belle Vue had already taken its toll on 20’s recently applied pristine coat of paint !

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.

Three out of use Isle of Man Railway carriages usually stored inside the Port Erin carriage shed, F25, F62 & F63, have, over the past few years, been temporarily moved to the siding at Port St Mary station whilst special TT commuter trains are operated. This is to create space inside the carriage shed for a second rake, there being two trains based in the south whilst the special trains operate. To protect easily vandalised glass, wooden boards have been attached.
