M.N.Ry. Carriage No.8
This carriage had a guards’ compartment added early in its career which was short-lived when it was damaged in an accident on 20th July 1905 when struck by an incoming train at Douglas; it was shortly thereafter officially removed from the stock list but survived for some time as an oil store at Ramsey. It was one of two to have a small window added to the bulkhead to improve visibility for the guards.
Above: no photographic images of M.N.Ry. No.8 are known to exist, instead here is an imagined maroon livery with gold detail on the beading on a brake composite carriage; the oil lamp housings have been omitted for variety, these were lost quite early in the careers of these carriages. Lost as early as 1905 no attempt was made to replace this, the Railway Company favouring bogie rolling stock by this time. Although known to have been used as a store at Ramsey Station no documentary evidence survives.
