A review of the Manx Electric Railway from 2013.
Footage from two visits to the island during the year – spring and summer.
Starting in May, highlights from three days of operation with the rare combination of cars 16+41 on Ramsey service, plus 9+59 and 19+58 on the Friday. On the Saturday car 16 works with 57 and trailer 56 is stabled in the now-lifted dual gauge siding at Laxey. On the Sunday, 21+56 are paired up, with cars 9, 19, 20, 47 and 59 also in action.
Footage from the summer is from the two main days of the Heritage Transport festival with an intensive service on the MER. On 26th July, a ten minute Douglas – Laxey service operates in the morning with an incredible 11 sets, (22 trams) in service. All of them are featured. On 28th July, an intensive service to Ramsey operates with 21 trams in service. All are featured on the Northern section.
With a running time of 65 minutes this review is shorter than previous years and this is reflected in the price, which is just £11.95.
