Laxey Browside Tramway (United Kingdom)


The Laxey Browside Tramway was a water operated two-car system that transported passengers up the hillside to the Laxey water wheel on the Isle of Man. Consisting of two open cars that operated opposite ends of the small line, it was powered by the water that was also used to turn the mighty water wheel. The tramway was opened in 1890, but closed in 1906.
