High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Year of Railways was a series of special events held on the Isle of Man during 1993 to commemorate the centenary of the opening of the first section of the Manx Electric Railway from Douglas (Derby Castle) to Groudle in September 1893. Prior to 1993 the Isle of Man's steam and electric railways were already established as tourism attractions and had put on special events previously such as the 1973 Steam Railway Centenary, the 1993 Year of Railways was used as an opportunity to promote the Island as a mecca for rail and engineering enthusiasts. Although 1993 was the centenary of the Manx Electric Railway, the events showcased all of the Islands railways and more with intensive activities during three periods. Each of the event periods commenced with "meet and greet" sessions held at Summerland where organisers, directors, staff and other influential people from the railways were on hand. As well as outlining the event timetables, there were slideshows, Questions and Answer sessions and general chat. The majority of the events were simple railway-based activities although the opportunity was also taken to do things a little different.
