Description

Starting with a day trip (by air from Blackpool) in 1970, this book covers the rest of the decade with visits in 1971, 1972, 1976 and 1979. The island was a fascinating place for a transport enthusiast, with the traditional Douglas Corporation buses, horse tramway, Manx Electric Railway and the steam railway - not forgetting the Snaefell Railway and the lovely old Steam Packet Co. ships. These traditional ships were the main loss in later years, but changes had also occurred prior to David's final visit, with the loss of the Douglas livery (all buses now being under a `National' fleetname) and the rationalisation of Douglas railway station. With a range of interesting views and fascinating subject matter, Isle of Man Transport in the 1970s will appeal both to those who have visited the island and general transport enthusiasts.

About Author

Born in Romford, Essex, in 1943, David Christie began photographing transport in 1962 when he decided to capture the final days of steam on Britain's rail network. He also recorded buses, especially around London, before moving to Scotland, where he still lives today.
