January 28th  2022                                            Meeting at Brockenhurst Village Hall      


  

Colin Brading presentsThree Feet on Three Legs - Railways of the Isle of Man”


  

This presentation explores its unique transport systems, it is like opening the lid of a treasure chest - and what jewels there are! 

Wonderful Victorian steam and electric railways still take passengers to ancient towns, through wooded glens, up to a mountain summit and by dramatic coastal scenery, while the oldest operational horse tramway in the world still plies the promenade in Douglas. 

Rich though this heritage is, there was once even more, and the presentation will also look at the many other systems that used to exist on this beautiful island.
