Manx Electric number 7 in blue

After an extensive overhaul Manx Electric number 7 entered service on 5th June with matching trailer number 48. Both are painted in a dark blue livery. Pictures and further details can be found Dave Martin's web site.
I have a couple of pictures of 7 in 1969 and 1975.

Dave Martin has sent me this picture of number 7 last September but please have a look at his web site for more pictures.


  1. I was out on the MER today, but unfortunately didn't see 7 and 48, so thanks for the pictures.
    Thanks also for the title picture of 76, on which I did some work, alongside Bob Hall and Charlie Haycock, in the sixties. Shame she's not a runner any more.

    Hi Geoff,

    I'm of the opinion that 7 and 48 are now tucked away in Derby Castle Car Shed until late July when the events period starts, however this is only guesswork...!

    With most of the service fleet recently painted the line is looking more impressive this year than it has been recently.
