Steam trains hit by boiler problem

Reduced timetable this week

Passengers are facing disruption on the Island's Steam Railway for the next week.

Engine failure is being blamed for a reduced timetable operating between today and Monday.

The train will be leaving Douglas daily at 9.50am at 1.50pm, and returning from Port Erin at 12pm and 4pm.

There are also additional alterations to Friday's schedule.

Transport bosses say the problem is 'regrettable', but anticipate it will be resolved by next week.

In the meantime, travellers are reminded their rail tickets will also be accepted on local bus services.
