Ivo Peters Volume 14 DVD: The Isle of Man 1963




This is Ivo’s second visit to the Isle of Man. It was originally released in 1996, now totally re-edited giving a first-rate picture.

Travel Douglas to Ramsey on the Northern line and to Port Erin going south.

Ivo Peters first visited the Isle of Man in 1962 (Volume Nine).

In 1963 he spent the first week in July on the island, when he filmed and photographed both the north and south lines out of Douglas.

This DVD looks at the general daily maintenance of the locomotives, along with the sorting of stock for the day’s running.

We then travel the southern line towards Port Erin, followed by the norther route, first to St. Johns and then on towards Peel and Ramsey.

Ivo filmed at most of the stations as well as many locations between, including the two viaducts on the Ramsey land and ‘the race’ out of St. Johns, with his customary unerring eye for a beautiful setting.

A map of the island showing the railway, plus a complete listing of all the steam locomotives on the Isle of Man Steam railway, is on the inside of the DVD cover.

Approx. 48 minutes.
