Great Laxey Mine Railway 2021

A re-creation of the original steam-powered mine railway from 1877. Runs from Laxey Valley Gardens up to the foot of the hill below The Great Laxey Wheel (Lady Isabella). Power is by replicas of the original Lewin-built locos, 'Ant & Bee', and a 1073 electric loco (WASP) built by Clayton. The gauge is 19in., the only one in the British Isles, and it runs through a 70m long tunnel en route.
