Perhaps it’s worth starting today with two maps of the Isle of Man rail system. As is now, and as it was, with many more 3′ gauge lines around the island. It was rather like the Isle of Wight, with a lot of lines round a small island.
We have travelled from Port Erin to Douglas, around Douglas Bay by horse tram, and today onward to Laxey by the Manx electric railway. Our trip starts at Derby Castle…
And on to Laxey, where the 3′ Manx Electric Railway interchanges with the 3′ 6″ Snaefell Mountain Railway.
A busy station….
Trains passing through on the way to Ramsey….
A trip on Manx Electric Railway No. 2…
Next time, we’ll visit the Snaefell Mountain Railway.
