Oh right. Wasn't expecting that for an IoM train as it's a "proper" working railway.

A lot of people get star struck with the big engines, and they forget the little engines such as this. What a classic, and beautifully restored.

Never seen such an engine before. Odd that it doesn't have the classic UK buffers on the front... unless its built into the coupler I see there. I also see the Isle of Man logo on thew left of the front fender. Does that mean this locomotive is originally from there?

This loco like the rest (bar one) built for the I.M.R. was built by Beyer Peacock in Manchester before being shipped out to the island for service. So what you see here is a loco running on the line it was origianlly built for with original rolling stock.
The Norweigan "chopper" coupling offers cusioning whilst being pulled due to a spring behind the buffer beam. This is however no cussioning whilst being pushed/coupled Once coupled it behaves much like a buckeye :)

Well, that's even more impressive in my book, then.

With couplers... sometimes its a Catch 22. Especially once they're connected. ;)

Fantastic shot, Nice decent view of a whole train of any size is rare on dA I suppose, but this charming little scene has it all. :)
