  • Isle of Man Transport: Snaefell Mountain Railway

    The mountain of Snaefell (Snow Mountain in Scandinavian) rises 2036 feet above sea level, and from it you can see the Seven Kingdoms: England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Mann, Heaven and the Sea. When the Manx Electric Railway reached the mining village of Laxey, the plans to construct an electric tramway to the summit of the mountain were released, and speculation ensued as to whether the trams would climb the 1 in 12 gradient on wheel adhesion alone. So, when construction began on the first British mountain railway (it predates the Snowdon Steam Railway) in 1894, the Fell Incline Railway system was adopted (where extra driving wheels gripped a central rail) but this was unnecessary as the trams had no trouble, so the centre rail was retained as a braking system (since changed to an emerg...

  • Isle of Man Transport: Douglas Promenade Horse Trams

    The only commercial horse tramway in the world still in operation runs along the seafront at Douglas, the Isle of Man's only city. Its southern terminus is a few minutes walk from the Steam Railway Station, at the Seaport Terminal. It then heads north, at a fast trot, with traffic on both sides, slowing down (and occasionally stopping) to let passengers on or off at a handful of stops in between the two termini. It then passes the stables, where the horses are changed up to every two hours so that they are not overworked. The tram then continues past the Sheds, which we have a brief look inside and see the hand-operated traverser which moves the trams to the correct tracks inside, and finally it arrives outside the Terminus Tavern at Derby Castle, a terminus it shares with the Manx Ele...

  • Isle of Man Transport: Steam Railway Part One

    Part one of a look at the Isle of Man's southern railway from Douglas to Port Erin. Mainly a tourist service, there were only two trains in operation over the 15 mile long route. The railway used to be much larger, extending North to Peel and Ramsey, but the route north was closed due to the competition from the Manx Electric Railway (which will be featured soon on this channel). The gauge is 3ft, and still uses the original stock from the 1870s. All the steam locomotives, built by Beyer, Peacock and Co, have a 2-4-0 wheel arrangement, except one: number 15, Caledonia, has an 0-6-0 arrangement as it was used on a particularly steep extension of the original line to Foxdale Mines. Only four of the original steam locomotives are operational (Loch, G H Wood, Hutchinson and Kissack (the l...

  • Isle of ManTram Transfer from Homefield to Derby Castle

    When the lease of former Isle of Man Road Services Homefield bus garage expired the stored coaches, loco frames, trams and buses owned by Isle of Man Railways had to be moved. This took place during 2009 and resulted in the trams returning to Derby Castle tram depot, railway coaches and locomotive frames to the Steam Railway and buses to a former aircraft hanger at Jurby to become part of the Islands Transport Museum.

The mountain of Snaefell (Snow Mountain in Scandinavian) rises 2036 feet above sea level, and from it you can see the Seven Kingdoms: England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Mann, Heaven and the Sea. When the Manx Electric Railway reached the mining village of Laxey, the plans to construct an electric tramway to the summit of the mountain were released, and speculation ensued as to whether the trams would climb the 1 in 12 gradient on wheel adhesion alone. So, when construction began on the first British mountain railway (it predates the Snowdon Steam Railway) in 1894, the Fell Incline Railway system was adopted (where extra driving wheels gripped a central rail) but this was unnecessary as the trams had no trouble, so the centre rail was retained as a braking system (since changed to an emergency braking system only, hence the rust...). When being built, an extra rail was laid to 3ft gauge as the IOM Steam Railway locomotive Caledonia assisted in the job but could not run on the 3ft 6ins gauge decided upon for the Snaefell Railway. The trams are equipped with four 25hp motors (a total of 100hp per tram), making them the most powerful trams in the country at the time of building. Six of these passenger cars were built, and all still run in service to this day. Number 7 was a freight wagon with a cab at either end and a six-ton freight wagon body in the middle. You can see in this video that one of the trams is being used as a works car pulling a skip full of material to the summit instead of 7 (whose remains sit next to the tram shed). Departing Laxey you can see where three tramway tracks all cross the road: Snaefell, MER Northbound and MER Southbound. As when crossing roads the trams must have their bells/whistles going, it is a very noisy area. Heading up the line you can see the famous Laxey Wheel. Bungalow station passes by, where passengers may alight halfway up or down, and the tram then continues up to the Summit, where the Summit Hotel was built at the same time as the tramway to serve refreshments to the tourists at the highest point on the island.

The tram then continues past the Sheds, which we have a brief look inside and see the hand-operated traverser which moves the trams to the correct tracks inside, and finally it arrives outside the Terminus Tavern at Derby Castle, a terminus it shares with the Manx Electric Railway (which is coming up in my next video). There were two out-of-service trams at the Derby Castle terminus: one is a Toastrack tram, the other painted in a different livery as it is the Royal Tram used when members of the Royal Family visit the Island. All the trams date back to the beginning of the horse tramway in the late 1800s, but only includes one working double-decker which does one trip a day. Unfortunately I was never in Douglas when it ran so didn't catch it on film. Hope you like the video, and the series will continue shortly as I'm trying to clear a backlog of videos for both this and my other channel (8spliced).

There are also two diesel locomotives usually used for shunting (one at each terminus; Douglas' engine Viking can be seen in this video) and two railcoaches under restoration.
