Groudle Glen Railway

Groudle Glen Railway is a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge railway which is owned and operated by a small group of enthusiastic volunteers. The line was built in the late Victorian era to cater for transport down Groudle Glen after the opening of the Manx Electric Railway. A zoo was built, and the Groudle Glen Railway connected to it, running from the upper part of the glen, Lhen Coan, to the zoo at Sea Lion Rocks.

The railway is just under one mile and has multiple stations:

  • Lhen Coan Station, the lower glen terminus, is also the location of the railway’s loco and carriage works.
  • Lime Kiln Halt, the intermediate halt at the halfway point
  • Headland Station, now closed
  • Sea Lion Rocks, the outer terminus and tearooms on the cliffs above the old zoo

The railway offers a limited seasonal service and check the website for running times and special events.
