Route Schematic

The background to the creation and financial background of the Manx Electric Railway and the associated Snaefell Mountain Tramway are covered elsewhere - at present this is just a holding page.

The original terminus station at Laxey was on the mine-side of the New Road near Dumbell's Row ('Ham and Egg Terrace') lasting for the first season until following the construction of the four arch viaduct, a new joint station was constructed across the New Road on land adjacent to the Laxey Church - a poor and doctored photo from an presumeably 1895 season Leporello album shows this
