What We Do

  • We monitor and consult with Government departments, Ministers and other stakeholders on current railway operations and proposed changes to services, stock, infrastructure, buildings and disused trackbeds.

  • We support a broad range of restoration and overhaul projects by providing volunteer labour when required and financing specific components.

  • We promote awareness and wider interest in the railway through publications, websites and social media, and at special interest exhibitions.

  • We participate in railway heritage conservation projects, independently and in partnership with Government departments, Manx National Heritage and other island-based heritage interest groups.

  • We publish a regular magazine journal, Manx Steam Railway News, recording and reporting the current news and events from the railway, with additional contemporary and historical articles, photographs and material of interest.

  • We maintain an extensive reference library with information on all aspects of the Isle of Man Railway operations, past and present.
