In 1945 Mike Jacobs visited the Isle of Wight for the first time and was captivated by the railway system, which he innocently believed at the time to be concentrated only at Ryde. Over the years, further visits followed, including trips on the Island line to Ventnor, Bembridge, Newport, and Yarmouth. Already addicted to the charm of the Island system, it was fortunate indeed when in 1954 the family moved to Ventnor, which was to cement his fascination with the railway system. Mike Jacobs' stories of railway life half a century ago and more, seen through the eyes of both a regular passenger and an enthusiast, are unique. Written with wonderful warmth of feeling, the reader is immediately taken back to a long-forgotten time and to a quaint way of life that has now all but disappeared. Fully illustrated with plenty of rare mono illustrations, this volume captures the ever-changing railway scene beautifully.

The Isle of Man has a rich transport heritage and once boasted the largest narrow gauge network in Britain with eight railways and tramways. Founded in 1870 and opened in 1874, the Isle of Man Railway still connects Douglas with the ancient capital of Castletown and Port Erin. This part of the line continues in operation using several of the original steam locomotives and carriages, and Gordon Edgar's collection of historic black-and-white archive images from the 1950s and 1960s captures this microcosm of former times, with the trains set amid the beautiful Manx countryside. The Isle of Man railways are hugely popular as a tourist attraction. There is a railway museum beside the station at Port Erin.
