Steam train timetable reduced following engine failures

Wed, 18 Oct 2017

Steam Railway services will be reduced for the next five days as a result of engine failures.

Isle of Man Railways revealed two of its engines are suffering from boiler problems, preventing the operator from running its full timetable.

Tomorrow, at the weekend and on Monday trains will leave Douglas at 9.50am and 1.50pm, returning from Port Erin at midday and 4pm.

On Friday, the 9.50am departure will only travel as far as Castletown.

All rail tickets will also be valid on bus services between Douglas and Port Erin on the affected days.
