Diesel railcars at Port Erin
Diesel railcars at Port Erin
Railcars Nos. 19 and 20 were purchased second-hand from the County Donegal Railways Joint committee when rail services were discontinued on this Irish line. In Ireland, they operated singly, but in the Isle of Man have always been used as a coupled pair, with one car towing the other. This is necessary because of the lack of turning facilities. The railcars are seen here at Port Erin.
