1st October
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.
