Changes made to steam convoy route

Changes have been made to the route taken by the convoy of steam traction engines currently visiting the Island.

The steam vehicles are heading to Jurby this afternoon before returning to Ramsey this evening, and will travel back over the Mountain Road tomorrow.

The Mountain Road is closed, so members of the public will only be able to watch the convoy from the Snaefell Mountain Railway, unless they already have tickets for the bus that will be following the journey.

The slow-moving convoy made its way to Ramsey yesterday, resulting in lengthy delays for other road users.

The convoy is part of the Isle of Man Festival of Steam, which runs until Sunday.
