Peter Johnson. Isle of Man Steam Railway in Colour (1998)

     Peter Johnson. Isle of Man Steam Railway in Colour (1998) Most of the photos (one per page) feature the steam engines; the captions provide all kinds of history and other information. Technically excellent, a few include people (staff, tourists), or a bit of landscape. As far as I can tell, the colours are accurate. A very well done album for the fan, and of more than passing interest to the casual reader recalling or planning a visit to the Island. Looking through it, I decided we should go there on our next visit. ***

I went to the Isle of Man some years back, and rode all three of the historic railways there. The steam railway was interesting, but the one that really intrigued me was the Snaefell mountain railway (electric). It is a beautiful place, and well worth your time and effort.
