The Isle of Man once had an extensive 3 foot gauge railway system. From an imposing terminus at Douglas, trains went to Port Erin, Peel and Ramsey. After the Second World War, the system began to run into financial problems, leading to the closure of the Peel and Ramsey lines in September 1968. The Ramsey line joined the Peel one at St. Johns and the rolling stock stabled there was just left to rot.
By 1974, things were in a sorry state, when spotted from a bus. There was just time to get these pics before having to return to Douglas to catch the ferry. Shortly afterwards, Irish scrap merchants cleared the site, which is now a car park!
