Although trains can be boarded at either end of the railway, most passengers start their journey at the Valley Gardens end of the railway.  The station has been constructed on top of the stone bunkers, known as the "teams" below.  Near to the carriage shed are another set of "teams".  Although older and of a different style they served the same purpose and stored ore tipped from the tramways wagons.  From the station there is an excellent view overlooking the former Washing Floors and in particular the restored Snaefell Mine waterwheel, Lady Evelyn.


Passengers are welcome to visit the engine shed and carriage shed but are asked not to cross the railway line and to use the footpath around the perimeter of the station.


There is a small souvenir stall at the station where train tickets can be purchased.
