Great Laxey Mine Railway 2024

A recreation 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. Power is by replicas of the original Lewin-built locos, 'Ant & Bee', and a 1073 electric loco 'WASP' built by Clayton. The gauge is 19 inch, the only one in the British Isles, and it runs through a 70m long tunnel en route.
