(2 Disc Set)
The Manx Electric Railway Video Magazine was first launched in 1999, originally only available on VHS cassette. The idea of the series was to record the MER in details and its peak, by the early/mid 2000s, there were three tapes per year. Although the railway has been filmed many times over the years, this was the first time it had been recorded in great detail - particularly in winter.
20-years later and on DVD for the first time, this two disc set contains 9 and 10 in the series. The footage comes from the original Mini DV master tape and is unedited - exactly how it was released first time round.
No.9 includes: Full coverage of the 2002 events including Car 31 to Ramsey, trailer 57 back in service and more from the Great Laxey clearout, with trams moving off the railway.
No.10 includes: Footage from the autumn of 2002 with a breakdown and derailment involving cars 26 and 16 and for the first time ever on video - the entire MER fleet. Plus more moves from Laxey.
