Coverage of MER operations from the spring of 2008.

With the line between Laxey and Ramsey closed for track renewal this programme takes a look at the truncated Douglas - Laxey service with interesting footage of three days operations in late May.

Although only three sets were required, cars 5, 6, 9, 19 and 22 were all used with various trailers including the pairing of car 5 - fully repaired after an accident - and 'Wheelchair' trailer 56.

In superb sunny weather, see the various combinations including newly painted cars 19, 40 and 46.

North of Laxey the scene is very different with a huge track renewal programme in place.

See amazing footage of a road/rail crane lifting and snapping the old rails at Ballaragh and 'Bertie' the diesel with trailer 45.
