The Supporters' Association

The Isle of Man Steam Railway Supporters’ Association was formed in 1966, the year that the original Isle of Man Railway had 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 charity work - helping to promote and conserve Manx steam railway heritage - by making a donation.  Click on the Donate button below for information on how you can donate.

Our next planned major conservation project, starting in 2018, is the restoration of Isle of Man Railway Goods Van G.1, a vehicle of significant historical importance both on the Island and much further afield.  Please support this restoration project by making a charity donation to our G.1 Appeal Fund

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.
