M.N.Ry. Carriage No.10 (N.48)

This example was fitted with electric lights, one of the few six-wheelers to be so treated; retaining the original layout of three double first class compartments until the end, by the 1940s it was out of use and stored in the open at St. John’s, one of the victims of the shed fire on 10th December 1975.

Above: third class composite No.1o with its six compartments including double windows in the central ones, a trait shared by No.6 as restored today in the railway museum; the lettering and detail here is show in vermilion and gold, though it is believed the original drop shadow shading was blue, matching the Railway Company's heraldic device, as shown on sister carriage returned to the railway though in private ownership, in 2022.

Stored in the former goods yard at Douglas Station in 1972 shortly before scrapping. This was the only six-wheeler to be moved here latterly.
