About Us

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 or participate in Manx steam railway heritage conservation projects alongside the day-to-day operation of the railway by the Government.
