+++   2018 Steam Railway Season Dates -  Friday 9 March 2018 to Monday 5 November 2018  +++

The Steam Railway

Dating back to 1874 and running 15¾ miles southwest from Douglas, the Isle of Man Steam Railway's line to Port Erin is one of the oldest and longest in-service narrow gauge passenger steam railways anywhere in the World.

Peel Line Opening, Douglas Station, 1 July 1873
(Manx National Heritage)

The 3ft gauge railway still uses its original vintage locomotives and rolling stock to provide passengers with an authentic Victorian and Edwardian travel experience through glorious Manx countryside.

The Supporters' Association

The Isle of Man Steam Railway Supporters’ Association was formed in 1966, the year that the Isle of Man Railway was closed for 'essential track maintenance work'.  We are the leading charity for railway preservation on the Isle of Man.

We actively promote awareness and interest in the Isle of Man Railway and undertake Manx steam railway heritage conservation projects alongside the day-to-day operation of the railway by the Government.
You can support our work - promoting and conserving Manx steam railway heritage - by making a charitable donation.  Click on the Donate button below to visit our fundraising and donations page.
