Young minds called upon for Train Design and Short Story Competition

Prizes to be won in four categories

Young imaginations are being called upon to create a 'virtual journey' in a new competition.

The Train Design and Short Story contest is the brainchild of Time Enough, in collaboration with children's author Christopher Vine, Isle of Man Transport, and The Family Library.

It's asking creative young minds to ponder up a journey and design the train to take readers there.

There are prizes to be won in four different categories, the design competition is open to anyone aged 4-10 and the writing competition to anyone aged 5-14.

You have until 5 July to get your entry in, which you can do on the Time Enough Spotlight page.

A model of one of the Isle of Man Railways locomotives.
