Across the Irish Sea – 8

Last, but not least, we have the 2′ gauge Groudle Glen Railway.  Less than a mile long, and 2′ gauge, it serves the Sea Lion Rocks Tea Room.

 

The Glen and the viaduct carrying the road and Manx Electric Railway.

The main station.

The trains.  I like the loco livery, rather like the old Midland & Great Northern Joint ‘gorse’ colour.

And Sea Lion Rocks.

So that’s the Dawes Brothers Manx excursion.  I thought that would be the end of their holidays, but Ron has already headed off to Bavaria.  He’s sent me some railway pictures, so we’ll post them at some point soon.  But perhaps I’ll have some modelling posts to come first?
