And so to bed…

I spotted this photo by David W Lang on the Visit Isle of Man Facebook page.


It’s the last regular Steam Locomotive of the season being put to bed in Port Erin – Purt Chiarn in Manx – for the winter (Special Events not withstanding). The steam railway on the Island is not just a tourist thing though, it supplements the bus service and is especially well used by commuters during the TT Races.

I’m pretty sure that this steam engine is the CH Wood, which transfixed my little boy back in July 2009 (bigger here):

I hope he has a happy hibernation.
