Station and Gift Shop

The Station is located at the valley garden end of the line at the bottom of the ramp coming down from the junction of Captains Hill and New Road (and opposite JJ Ribbons)

The shop has been painted again for the start of the season and the shelving has been altered to make it easier for customers to browse. 

Last year we trialled Go cards which were a great success so will be accepting them again this year.  What with a “new” till and now Go cards, the Station shop is progressing well from the days when the money for tickets was collected in a leather satchel.

The shop is well-stocked with adult’s mugs, child’s mugs, fridge magnets, coasters and key fobs which are unique to the railway in that the photos are of the engines, Ant and Bee.  

The Ant/Bee pin badge are also be on sale.  Some of the first-day covers on sale will also have photos of the railway on them.

We now have three children's books, “The Magic Tunnel”, "Jinny the Witch and the Magic Tunnel" "The Lil' People and the Magic Tunnel" all part-fiction, part-fact books about the adventures of Ant and Bee. Each book has been written and illustrated  by one of our volunteers, Edith Quaggin and are in Manx and English.  The books sell at £6.99 and every penny profit from the sales will be donated to the railway.  There is more information about this book on the “Book and other merchandise” part of the website.  The publication of the books has been supported by Culture Vannin.

All major credit cards are accepted.
