The pictures below are of buildings that survive from the WW2 Chain Home radar station constructed at Scarlett in 1940 as part of the defensive network around the coast of Great Britain. There were two other Chain Home station on the IOM, at Dalby and Bride and a Chain Home Low
radar station on Mull Hill, above Cregneash. Originally the transmitter and receiver buildings were completely covered with earth to
protect against bomb damage, but this has been eroded over time.

re-worked photographs, dating back to the 1990s in some cases, processed using Corel Painter Essentials. They depict the 'single digit' numbered locomotives from No 1 to No 9 all built in the 19th century and with the exception of 'Loch' none are currently in service. Engine No 2 'Derby' and No 7 'Tynwald' no longer exist and No 3 'Pender' is a sectioned exhibit in a Manchester Museum.

Just had a quick count up on the last day of 2014, at the end of 15 years of Island Images. Over the past year I have posted 1,118 pictures of the Isle of Man, 251 pictures of the island's railways and 299 Aircraft pictures taken here.  'Away' pictures not counted.  I hope you have enjoyed looking at them and will continue with more in 2015. Wishing all visitors best wishes for the New Year!
