A slow-moving convoy of locomotives is making its way around the Isle of Man as part of a steam festival. The road train, consisting of three Fowler road locomotives, will haul a trailer carrying the Isle of Man steam engine Fenella.

The Isle of Man Festival of Steam 2017 incorporates and builds on the success of the Rush Hour event, with visiting steam cars and road locomotives participating in a number of tours and events around the Island.

The most dramatic visual experience of steam powered heavy haulage to be seen on public roads for many years is this road train consisting of three iconic Fowler road locomotives hauling an Isle of Man Steam Railway locomotives on the Great Dorset Twin Bogie Trailer around some of the steepest and most challenging roads on the Island.
