Photographer Clive Brown visited the Island for a short break during May 1982, when he was able to capture some of the many facets of Manx transport during that period. It was an interesting toime especially on the bus scene, with many of the 'traditional' buses entering their twylight days in service being replaced with more modern types, albeit second-hand. Clive has a many thousands of transport and scenic photographs from all over the UK on his website at with the Manx page at and has very kindly allowed the inclusion of some on the Manx Electric Railway Society website. To see these images in full-size or the other good quality photographs from his collection please take a look at theabove links.

This page features some photos of Manx railed transport in 1982. The MERS is very grateful for the use of these photographs, which make a welcome addition to the website. Copyright for each view remains with Clive Brown.
