Snaefell Mountain Railway :: SC3987
Built in 1895, the Snaefell Mountain Railway is an electric mountain railway (the only one in the British Isles) which runs from the village of Laxey to the summit of Snaefell, at 2,036 feet above sea level the highest point on the island. It connects with the Manx Electric Railway (MER) in Laxey. The line is five miles long, built to 3 ft 6 in gauge and uses a Fell Incline Railway System centre rail for braking on the steep gradients. It is electrified using overhead wires at 550 volts direct current, with bow collectors.
