On Saturday 1 August 2015, Isle of Man Railways payed tribute to the Manx Northern railway, originally opened between St John’s and Ramsey on 23 September 1879. The line closed in 1968, so as a tribute the Douglas to Port Erin line became the ‘Northern Line’ for the day. Stations were renamed along the line and locomotive No.10 G H Wood ran as No.5 Mona for the day. Under clear blue skies, No.5 Mona departs from St John’s (Douglas) with the delayed 12.50 to Ramsey (Port Erin). The leading coach is Manx Northern Railway No.17, in MNR Livery, that became F39 in the Isle of Man Railway fleet.
