  • Isle of Man Transport: Snaefell Mountain Railway

    The mountain of Snaefell (Snow Mountain in Scandinavian) rises 2036 feet above sea level, and from it you can see the Seven Kingdoms: England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Mann, Heaven and the Sea. When the Manx Electric Railway reached the mining village of Laxey, the plans to construct an electric tramway to the summit of the mountain were released, and speculation ensued as to whether the trams would climb the 1 in 12 gradient on wheel adhesion alone. So, when construction began on the first British mountain railway (it predates the Snowdon Steam Railway) in 1894, the Fell Incline Railway system was adopted (where extra driving wheels gripped a central rail) but this was unnecessary as the trams had no trouble, so the centre rail was retained as a braking system (since changed to an emerg...

    The Isle of Man Steam Railway, consisting of the 13 mile long 3ft narrow gauge line from Douglas to Port Erin, was in action once again during the 2015 Manx Transport Festival, with the stalwart Beyer Peacock 2-4-0 tank engines going about their daily business. The following video shows what was going on, during three selective days of the event. On Wednesday 29th July, we join No.12 Hutchinson on a service to Douglas, with No.8 Fenella on a driver's experience course arriving back at Port Erin, and the recently returned to traffic No.13 Kissack. The following day, Thursday 30th July, we join No.4 Loch (with just under a month to go before being withdrawn for overhaul) for a run to Port Erin, but with a twist... A few yards out of Douglas station, and something happens. An extra coach an...

The mountain of Snaefell (Snow Mountain in Scandinavian) rises 2036 feet above sea level, and from it you can see the Seven Kingdoms: England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Mann, Heaven and the Sea. When the Manx Electric Railway reached the mining village of Laxey, the plans to construct an electric tramway to the summit of the mountain were released, and speculation ensued as to whether the trams would climb the 1 in 12 gradient on wheel adhesion alone. So, when construction began on the first British mountain railway (it predates the Snowdon Steam Railway) in 1894, the Fell Incline Railway system was adopted (where extra driving wheels gripped a central rail) but this was unnecessary as the trams had no trouble, so the centre rail was retained as a braking system (since changed to an emergency braking system only, hence the rust...). When being built, an extra rail was laid to 3ft gauge as the IOM Steam Railway locomotive Caledonia assisted in the job but could not run on the 3ft 6ins gauge decided upon for the Snaefell Railway. The trams are equipped with four 25hp motors (a total of 100hp per tram), making them the most powerful trams in the country at the time of building. Six of these passenger cars were built, and all still run in service to this day. Number 7 was a freight wagon with a cab at either end and a six-ton freight wagon body in the middle. You can see in this video that one of the trams is being used as a works car pulling a skip full of material to the summit instead of 7 (whose remains sit next to the tram shed). Departing Laxey you can see where three tramway tracks all cross the road: Snaefell, MER Northbound and MER Southbound. As when crossing roads the trams must have their bells/whistles going, it is a very noisy area. Heading up the line you can see the famous Laxey Wheel. Bungalow station passes by, where passengers may alight halfway up or down, and the tram then continues up to the Summit, where the Summit Hotel was built at the same time as the tramway to serve refreshments to the tourists at the highest point on the island.

Following the journey and after some shunting, the duo get going from Port Erin, back to Douglas. Later, No.13 Kissack, No.4 Loch and No.12 Hutchinson arrive and depart Castletown station with their respective services. Finally, back at Douglas, No.13 Kissack and No.10 G.H Wood depart Douglas with an evening 'diner' service towards Port Erin.

My aim is for you the viewer to also watch these videos and see places that spark that lightbulb moment, they even may make you want to buy a drone and fly the same locations and get closer to those places that I have not yet returned to. Ben-my-Chree was ordered in 1997 by Sea Containers for the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company. Costing around £24 million, she was built by van der Giessen de Noord of the Netherlands and launched on 4 April 1998. The sixth vessel to carry the name, she is registered in Douglas, Isle of Man. Brought around to the island from the Netherlands by the late Captain Vernon Kinley, Ben-my-Chree entered service on 5 July 1998, Tynwald Day - the Isle of Man's national holiday. At a gross tonnage of around 12,000, she was the largest ship to enter service with the company. The vessel received a lot of criticism due to her low passenger capacity of 500 (carrying no more than 350 per sailing), and the fact she had no open deck for passengers. The company insisted this was a "comfort level" for the vessel's size. In 2004 the vessel underwent a refit carried out by Cammell Laird to increase passenger capacity with the addition of a new passenger module. In 2014 Ben-my-Chree underwent a £1.6 million refit which included new LED lighting fitted to the lounge areas, refitted the crew rest area. also carried out by Cammell Laird Incidents On 25 July 2008, Ben-my-Chree suffered a technical failure, with the Viking taking her Heysham sailing until she was repaired. On the evening of 1 May 2013 when arriving in Douglas Harbour from Heysham, Ben-my-Chree struck part of the King Edward Pier Linkspan, Number 5 berth. In the collision part of the ship was slightly damaged, meaning the evening departure to Heysham was delayed. Passengers had to wait around two hours for the arrival of "Manannan" from Liverpool to be transported to Heysham, arriving there only about thirty minutes late.Ben-my-Chree re-entered service the following day with a freight-only service to Heysham and was back in full service at 19.45 the same day.[7] In December 2011 the Ben-my-Chree suffered a number of cancelled sailings due to high winds and a problem with a bow thruster that had been damaged in May that year. Arrangements to dry dock the ship in June and then in September had to be cancelled after the manufacturers, Wartsilla, failed to complete the necessary repairs.[8] Chief executive of the Steam Packet Company wrote to the local newspaper, the Manx Independent to express the company's frustration at the ongoing problems. On 12 February 2015, Ben-my-Chree lost control and collided with fishing boat, while entering Douglas Harbour. The vessel's stern made contact with Battery Pier and a fishing boat at its mooring. It was found that the ship and the fishing boat only suffered superficial damage. The ship was checked by divers for signs of damage to the propellers and steering.It was then relocated to Victoria Pier using a tug boat - where passengers disembarked. On 2 May 2015, the morning sailing from Douglas to Heysham was cancelled and the afternoon return. Ben-my-Chree was suffering from a "bow thruster... only operating on reduced power". On 16 May 2015 there was a suspected chimney stack lagging fire was detected on the 8.45am crossing from Douglas to Heysham. The sailing arrived in Heysham Port around 1 hour late and no passengers or crew were injured. On 12 February 2017, the vessel made contact with the pier at Douglas whilst attempting to moor in high winds on arrival from Birkenhead (Liverpool). MS Arrow and HSC Manannan were planned to take over the freight and passenger duties.
