Breakdown Crane No.1
No.1 crane was obtained for the opening of the Peel Line in 1873 from Thomas Kiss & Co., of Birmingham and survived until 1969 when it was sold for scrap; latterly it was a common sight at Ramsey Station where it could be found on the spur that once extended to the Harbourside Tramway, without its jib. There appear to be no operational records to suggest that it was used.
Thomas Kiss & Co.
In June 2019 the surviving makers’ plate was photographed, this is in the possession of an Association member, the last part remaining.
