Manx Electric Railway Summer Season 2014 Services commence

Friday, April 4, 2014 saw the launch of this year's summer services on the electric railway following some considerable last minute effort to get the line fully operational. Repairs to the damaged track bed at Ballaglass were completed earlier in the week, whilst the last section of overhead (for the main MER tracks) through the Laxey relay area was strung Thursday evening. As planned, timetable B, with three service cars & crews was operational.
