Steam Train No 4 Caledonia at Kirk Michael – Manx Heritage Transport Festival 2018.

To mark the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the last train on the Northern Line, a locomotive (Caledonia) will be positioned on track outside an original Manx Northern Station building at Kirk Michael (now Kirk Michael Fire Station).

Kirk Michael Heritage Trust will be in the former station building with a photographic display focused on the Northern Line. This will be the first time since closure of the line in 1968 that a locomotive has visited the station.
Worth a look on Wednesday 25th July.

A nice walk around Laxey on Saturday.

Image 1 – Laxey Railway Station looking very tidy and pretty, Laxey Station is an intermediate station that serves electric trams running from Douglas to Ramsey and return and is the start of the Snaefell Mountain railway climb and descent.

Image 2 – A slightly different perspective from high above the Laxey Wheel in the hills at Agneash. The wheel was built in 1854 in order to drain the mines of water and was officially started by Lieutenant Governor Hope and it was named in honour of his wife “Lady Isabella”.

I just love this gorgeous house in Ballabeg, it is a credit to the owner, I am sure there must be some history regarding this property, I love the archway where the garage is, if anyone knows it’s history please do tell us.

Mona’s Queen III Memorial

The anchor from the Mona’s Queen III, which lies at Kallow Point in Port St Mary, is a memorial to those who lost their lives in Operation Dynamo. During the 1990s, divers exploring wrecks off the coast of Dunkirk identified that one of the anchors from the wreck of the Isle of Man Steam Packet’s Mona’s Queen III had become detached and therefore could be considered separate to the untouchable war grave.

After much hard work and campaigning, the anchor was finally returned to the Island in October 2011 and officially opened on 29th May 2012, the 72nd anniversary of the loss of the three ships.
