History
Trailer No.46 was ordered for the extension of the M.E.R to Ramsey, and built by G.F Milnes as a crossbench of the No.44-No.48 series in 1899. It has seen constant use from its construction on the full-line service, and is the oldest surviving example of the ‘standard’ M.E.R Trailer, with the original Trailer No.44 being destroyed in the April 1930 Laxey Car Shed Fire, and No.45 rebuilt as a Permanent Way Flat during 2003.
