Artist's Description

Snae Fell Mountain Railway, Isle of Man

Number of views as of 31st January 2016 = 1900.

Car number 2 approaching the terminus at the summit of Snae Fell on the Isle of Man, 2036 feet above sea level.

When clear, it is said that the mountain offers views of Six Kingdoms – the island itself, Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales and Heaven above.

The 5 mile line was opened in 1895 and operates with 6 identical cars. It joins the Manx Electric Railway at Laxey.

The mast on the left is part of the NATS (National Air Traffic Services) radio station situated on top of the mountain.

During the winter months, the power lines for the electric railway are removed to protect them from damage by icing and NATS staff are transported up and down the mountain by smaller private railcars.

Date: 2nd August 2009.
