Other stopping places[]

Winter Saloon No. 20 (1899) at Ramsey Plaza Station in the austerity livery in June 2005

In addition to official stations which appear on the timetables, there are also a number of unofficial stopping points and request stops, more recently denoted by the addition of "bus stop" style signs during the late 1990s; prior to this the halts were not demarcated on the line. These can be found along the line at such locations as the former holiday camp at Howstrake, the Liverpool Arms (Halfway House, now known as Balladromma Beg) and Ballure Road. This is not an exhaustive list of every stopping point on the line, however. Trams may stop at virtually any point on the line[citation needed] and double track operation ensures that collisions are avoided. There are crossing points along the line, primarily at the timetabled stopping points, though many are now disused.
