Stops and Stations

Although well-known for its rural nature, it still comes as a surprise to most passengers that there are more than sixty official ‘stations’ or ‘stops’ on the M.E.R network. Many of these are little more than footpaths across the railway, especially on the northern section between Laxey and Ramsey, however over the years the line has possessed a number of substantial stations with cafeterias, large waiting areas and even one or two hotels!

As with the lines rolling stock, many of the original buildings survive, although the majority have been modified, repainted, or replaced outright.
