Engineering work on the Up line is causing single line working between Bungalow and Snaefell Summit. Snaefell Mountain Railway car 5 is about to take the crossover onto the Down line just before the level crossing at Bungalow station. Bungalow is shown as 1355 ft above sea level.
The level crossing is the A2 road, which is part of the famous Tourist Trophy (TT) motorcycle course. During this and other events the crossing is blocked to rail traffic: the workings terminate either side of the crossing using the crossover tracks; passengers have to walk between, via a footbridge just visible on the left.
