Saturday Film Club: Great Laxey Mine Railway

Another Manx video for you today - this time the lesser-spotted Great Laxey Mines Railway. 

This 19inch gauge line is a relative newcomer to the IOM train scene, re-opening in 2004. The ride is short, but fun and the locomotives are unusual. 

One interesting feature is the flange lubricator on the initial very tight curve out of the station. I can't recall seeing one before, although I know they exist on the main line.
