The 1ft 7in gauge Great Laxey Mines Railway connects the electric railway and Snaefell Mountain Railway with the giant waterwheel.that served a zinc/lead/copper mine. A low clearance tunnel takes the line beneath the road and the electric railway.
The two original locomotives, ANT and BEE were built by Stephen Lewin of Poole in 1877 and modern replicas were built in 2004. There is also a modern Clayon battery-electric, WASP.
