SITUATION  Travelling from Douglas in the direction of Castletown continue through Santon and immediately after passing the famous ‘Fairy Bridge’ take the first single private road on the right clearly identified by our Manxmove For Sale board and continue up this road for a short distance, over the railway track and Ballastrang Gate House can be found as the first house on the left hand side clearly identified by our Manxmove For Sale board.

To the north of the railway station the line passes over a road bridge and travels along an embankment; immediately after leaving the railway station environs the line passes under the main Douglas to Ballasalla road and thereafter onto another much larger embankment across the Santon Burn to the occupational crossings of Ballalona and Ballastrang farms. The latter is the sole remaining manned level crossing and retains its manually operated gates.
