Well that's a wrap for the season but you know what's coming next!



It's not just the Laxey Duck Race next Saturday, 19th August. It's not just the Wheelie Bin Relay Race next Saturday. Its also the Great Laxey Mine Railway Duck Trail! Bring your little ones down and see if you can spot all the famous ducks along the line. Prizes kindly supplied by Shoprite Isle of Man. So don't duck the issue, get up at the quack of dawn, waddle down to Laxey and have a great day. It will also be made into a major new Netflix Duckumentary!

Can you crack the code? Event running Saturday & Sunday 22nd and 23rd July and Saturday and Sunday 29th & 30th June

Lets just draw a line under Summer and Skip to Hop Tu Naa!


The Great Laxey Mine Railway is now open for the 2023 season and, once again prices, have been held at £2.50 return, with children under 5 travelling free.


A small selection of cold drinks is now available at the station shop  along with Ant and Bee Souvenirs.

We look forward to welcoming you to the railway.                                                           


The Great Laxey Mine Railway is owned by the Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust, a registered Manx Charity, which was formed in 1997 to promote the rich industrial and natural histories of Laxey Village and Lonan Parish. The railway is operated and maintained entirely by volunteers from the Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust.

We would like to thank those organisations who have supported us over the years and there are many of you. In particular we would like to thank Ace Hire in Douglas who have helped with the equipment we have used for the winter season work.
