History:

Trailer No.36 was the third trailer in a batch built for the Manx Electric Railway in 1894 by G.F Milnes, as No.19. It was renumbered as No.36 in 1898 with the impending construction of the ‘Winter Saloon’ Cars.

In use mainly on specials to Groudle and Laxey, No.36 last received workshop attention in 1965. It was still in use for summer work until 1971, where it was withdrawn from service and stored in the seaside road at Ramsey Car Shed, moving for further storage at Laxey Car Shed during 1973.

It was moved from there for further storage at the Homefield Bus Garage in Upper Douglas in May 2002, returning to the M.E.R in November 2009. No.36 is now stored on trucks at Derby Castle Car Sheds, pending further decisions on its future.
