September Review – Isle of Man: No. 4 – Manx Electric Railway Cavalcade starts
For many the highlight of the events week was the MER Cavalcade which saw 14 motors, 12 passenger trailers, 2 vans, 2 wagons and 1 tower wagon parade through Laxey Station on Friday 7th September – the exact anniversary of the opening of the MER. In this first of three looks at the Cavalcade we see the early stages of the parade.
Before the Cavalcade started the trams were lined up above the Washing Floors. This view shows 1+51 and 2+59 waiting for the Cavalcade to commence.
Another view of the 1+51 and 2+59 as they continue to wait.
The trams ran through Laxey Station in motor numerical order with the third in the parade being 5+42+Wagon 8. (All Photographs by Gareth Prior)
