A Manx Curiosity
There are lots of curious things on the Isle of Man, Manx cats for one, but more pertinent for this photo-stream is Manx Electric Railway 23. Built as a steeple-cab electric locomotive in 1900, an accident in 1914 saw it's rebuilding into the beast seen here. It has had an intermittent working life, borrowing trucks from other cars to run. It is currently in store, last seeing action in 1993.

23 is seen here at Douglas during an outing in June 1983, contrasting with the little Fiat Panda alongside.

Scanned from an Agfachrome slide (CT21 judging by the grain) taken by the late Charles Dean, now in my collection.
