The popularity of ‘Thirsty Thursday’ on the steam railway has resulted in the promotion being extended throughout next month.

Passengers can experience the hospitality on September 4, 11, 18 and 25, between Douglas and Port Erin.

The restored dining car serves up a selection of suppers, while a range of locally brewed ales, beers, wines and spirits are on offer in the bar car.

The train leaves Douglas at 7pm and returns from Port Erin at 9.15pm, with bar food available on both legs of the journey.

The Thirsty Thursday nights have been very popular throughout the summer, with people taking the opportunity to enjoy a scenic trip on the steam railway while sipping a cool drink or tucking into favourite dishes such as pie ā€˜nā€™ mash.

Reservations and inquiries can be made by calling the booking office on 697457 or emailing
