Miniature railway back on track thanks to funding

Tue, 14 Sep 2021

A much-loved Island attraction for all ages is ready to delight locals and visitors alike after a key part of the facility was rebuilt.

The Orchid Line Railway, which is based at the Curragh’s Wildlife Park in Ballaugh, has benefited from a Community Award, courtesy of the Manx Lottery Trust.

The grant of £1,370 will allow the Manx Steam and Model Engineering Club to demolish, remove and rebuild the railway’s old ticket office.

It had been originally built 20 years ago, together with two signal boxes which are used to house the electronic control equipment for the railway’s signalling system.
