Across the Irish Sea – 1

As the Goons sung so memorably…

I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
Across the Irish Sea,
I’m walking backwards for Christmas,
It’s the only thing for me.

As threatened promised, today I’ll start the pictures from Allan’s and Ron’s holiday on the Isle of Man.  These may pop up from time for weeks and weeks.  There are some interesting pictures of the remnants of a unique narrow gauge railway system.

We’ll start by getting them there…..

Liverpool Lime Street.  Only had time for a few quick pictures here at Liverpool Lime Street.  Had a nice run up from Euston this morning on Penelope the Pendolino (this was the name the side of the train.)

Sitting in departure lounge for ferry on Liverpool.

Arrival of our ferry on which we will be travelling in the luxury lounge.


Nice trip across. Don’t think we will need the rescue. (the small tower in the middle of Douglas Bay.)

Ferry 25 mins late arriving. Delayed in disembarking due to a medical emergency on board requiring an ambulance crew. Tried waiting for a bus but gave up and walked up to station to catch last train of the day to Port Erin. Very windy here.


Now that’s what I call a locomotive!  More in a day or two…..
