Our Current Major Projects
Our restoration of Isle of Man Railway Goods Van G.1, a vehicle of significant historical importance both on the Island and much further afield, is approaching conclusion although additional funds are still needed.
Following removal of its asbestos last year, we are funding the cosmetic restoration of 1876-built Engine No.6 PEVERIL which resides in the Railway Museum at Port Erin and has had no major attention since 1994.
