posted 18 Sept 2018, 03:40 by IOM SRSA   [ updated 28 Jun 2021, 03:38 ]
Published by the Manx Transport Heritage Museum which resides in the old Brickworks yard office in Peel, this new 36 page A5 size booklet recounts the remarkable story of a railway which served 26,000 people encamped on the Isle of Man from 1915 to 1920.

With a selection of historical and contemporary photographs, the booklet places the Knockaloe branch line into historical context, looks at the purpose,  construction, and operation of the line, and explores the route today as a most useful rambler's guide for the more adventurous.

The booklet is available from the Manx Transport Heritage Museum and the House of Manannan museum in Peel, or from the Supporters' Association. RRP £5.00 (plus P&P).
