The Ramsey Line

Spread the love

By far the most spectacular of the island’s lines, the ambitious northern section caused headaches throughout its lifetime, most notably the exposed section at Gob-Y-Deigan and the embankments nearby.  The majority of major stations on the northern line were constructed of local sandstone which has a distinctive pink-red colour; notable exceptions were the terminus building in Ramsey which was Italian in style and the unusual design of Sulby Glen, itself a replacement station.  The longest of all the lines in the network, it was perhaps the one with the most points of interest, such as the viaducts at Glen Wyllin and nearby Glen Mooar, as the quayside extension at the terminus and short-lived oil tanker sidings at Milntown in the last years of its life.
