Today “Picture in Time” is heading across the Irish Sea again and finds itself on the Isle of Man for a view of one of the original two trams still in existence – no. 2.
The main subject of our image is 1893 built tram no. 2 which along with still in existence no. 1 and the Laxey fire of 1930 victim no. 3 was built by G F Milnes for the opening of the line between Derby Castle and Groudle in the same year. The tram had by this time spent a period of time in use by the Overhead Line Department but continued to return to passenger service frequently.
In this view no. 2 is seen approaching 1906 Crossbench no. 32 at Garwick on 4th August 1967.
