Northern Railway Line

All posts tagged Northern Railway Line

Sulby Bridge station opened on the 23rd September 1879 as part of the Manx Northern Railways St John to Ramsey line, it is built in red sandstone which was quarried from Peel.

The station is named after the adjacent Sulby Bridge, and it’s rather isolated position meant that it was not as busy as the nearby Sulby Glen station.

The St John to Ramsey line and all of its stations, including Sulby Bridge station closed completely in 1968.

Railway House is now in private ownership.
