  “When I get a little money, I buy books. If any is left I buy food and clothes.” Erasmus  
 
What is a Loaghtan?
  A Rochester Town Crier'  
  Something on the Line
Tram Tales of the Manx
Electric Railway # 1
 
  Why should all the good books be about steam trains? The trams of the Manx Electric Railway (MER) celebrate their 125th birthday this year and have lots of stories to tell.  
  We’ve seen so many children really enjoying their day out on the MER that we thought they’d probably enjoy reading something about the trams’ adventures.  
  Something on the Line tells how a dinosaur strayed onto the MER line, and how the trams all worked together to sort things out. Twain, the youngest tram, had to be particularly brave when he ventured into dinosaur country.  
  The book is the first in a new series ‘Tram Tales of the MER’. Other books in the series will be out later in the year.  
 
 
  Welcome to the Loaghtan Books website.
As a reader have you ever felt that the books you really want to own are just too expensive?

So did we!

To rectify that we at Loaghtan Books keep our prices as low as possible and the quality of our books as high as we can.

We are a small but growing independent
publishing house, founded to produce the sort
of books we want to read but can’t find elsewhere. At the moment we publish only factual books,
but in the future, who knows…?

We don’t restrict ourselves to specialising in
certain subjects, preferring to base our books on what readers tell us interest them. Whatever the subject each publication is researched thoroughly and imaginatively illustrated. Our books aim equally at education, illumination and entertainment or, to put it another way, learning and fun.

Some of our books are based on unique historic material; manuscripts and photographs not previously published to which we have added commentary so that our readers can understand allusions in the text not obvious to modern eyes.
Other books are completely new, researched and written in house or by authors whose standards are as high as our own.

In this digital age, information can be can be seen by thousands merely at the click of the mouse.
But how accurate is it? And who checks that it’s true? At Loaghtan Books we check. We verify everything we publish. And accuracy needn’t
be stuffy and boring. Look at our book pages to find out.
