Announcement from Isle of Man Transport
"To ensure the continued safety of the public and their staff Isle of Man Railways have announced all Isle of Man Heritage Railways will suspend operations from this evening (19 March).
The situation will be regularly reviewed in the light of ongoing developments.
The famous dining car events on the steam railway and the Snaefell Summit dinners will also cease operating from today. The team will contact all customers who have booked for these events to make suitable alternative arrangements.
Port Erin Railway Museum will be closed from today and the Rush Hour on the Railways event will also be cancelled. Discussions will commence with commercial tenants and off–Island travel partners to support them and mitigate the impact of the situation.
Any annual passes for the railways will be extended into next season to take into account the period of closure."
