Whilst much of the south
of the island was covered in fog, causing many aircraft to divert from
Ronaldsway, the northern areawas bathing in sunshine and I had a walk from
the Black Hut to the top of Snaefell. - Nikon D7100 7/9/16

Aerial pictures taken
yesterday morning, following the route of the old Douglas Southern Electric
Tramway from Douglas Head to Port Soderick. This was the island's
only 'Standard Gauge' (4' 8 1/2") railway and opened in 1896. There was
no mains electricity supply so the company built its own power station
at Pigeon Stream. Due to a shortage of level ground, the car shed
were constructed at Little Ness, about 2/3rds of the way to Port Soderick.
The railway was closed at the outbreak of WW2 in 1939 and ever re-opened.
One of the tramcars is preserved at the National
Tramway Museum at Crich, Derbyshire.
For more information
on this fascinating tramway may I recommend 'By
Whing to Port Soderick' by George Hobbs.
