Isle of Man Steam Haulage

Paul Smith sent me the following wonderful pictures of Fowler Road Locomotives 17105 "Atlas" & 17106 "Duke of York" which were taken during a haulage job on the Isle of Man back in 1993.

Paul tells me that he was Atlas' steersman on the return trip to Bolton from Heysham docks. Mike Bozson was steersman on the I.O.M. with Fred Dibnah driving, the engine having been repaired in Bolton by Fred. There was also a video produced around this time which features some footage of the job called "Travels with an Old Atlas":
