A 'Festive Brunch' train
on a frosty Sunday morning, Isle of Man Railway.
No 4 Loch, captured
at Douglas after a test run to Port Erin and back. Loch is due back
in service this year after last running in 2015. She has a new boiler
and 'Salter' type safety valves of the type originally fitted when she
was constructed by Beyer Peacock's of Manchester in 1874.
After this the island
entered another 'Covid' lockdown period. Normal passenger services
should have started in March, but apart from some sporadic works trains
that operated when regulations allowed, there were to be no more trains
for quite a while.
