The Railway Series
Opened in September of 1985, the railway was built for the convenience of residents and visitors. It is a joint venture between the hotel keepers of Skarloey village and Skarloey Railway Company. The railway undertook the construction and holds 51% of the shares while the hotels hold the remaining 49%.
Being a funicular railway, there are two tram-like carriages that run in opposite directions up and down the incline.
