St. John's Gravel Line

The St. John's Gravel Line was a very short section of two foot gauge line laid with "jubilee" type temporary rails and sleepers to the easterly side of the Isle of Man Railway station at St. John's and was served by a specially laid siding off the main Douglas-Peel line. Only manual power was employed and the line used a familiar style of tipper wagons. Few photographs of this line exist and it was very much gone and overgrown by the time the railway closed for good in 1968.
