Railway Mail Van No.16 was brought back into service and carried mail from Derby Castle to Ramsey, and from Ramsey to Laxey, during the Manx Heritage Transport Festival. The M.E.R. built two vans in-house, numbered 15 and 16, during 1908 at the Derby Castle depot. The two vans were subsequently lettered with ‘G.R. Royal Mail’ on both sides. Mail Van 16 was taken out of service in 1975 and stored in the Ramsey car shed, then moved to the old Homefield Bus Depot in Douglas in 1997.
