'Complex' operation to right derailed tram

Wed, 08 Jul 2015

Work is on-going to ensure the Manx Electric Railway track and overhead lines are safe.

Services were suspended yesterday after a tram derailed and a tram trailer rolled onto its side.

It happened near to Laxey Station during a routine shunt.

Staff worked for two hours last night to successfully lift the trailer back onto the track in a rescue operation described as “complex”.

Isle of Man Transport  has apologised for any inconvenience.
