Repair works on the Manx Electric Railway near Ballaglass Glen, Maughold, will be completed in time for the start of the season tomorrow (Friday).

In this initial phase of works that were required following flood damage to the line, the track was removed, ground around the sinkhole was excavated and replaced plus 10 metres of gabion baskets have been installed giving additional support. The track has been reinstated followed by works to replace the lined drainage ditch.

The first trams will depart Douglas at 9.40am and Ramsey at 10.10am on Friday.
