Fine example of a Victorian Electric Railway and I'm sure one of the best examples in the British Isles. Railways like these sets the Isle of Man apart. So much tradition and character to the vehicles as you pass through some of the best Glens and coastal scenery on the Island. The Mountain Railway is another trip all together as you pass through steep valleys to the highest point on the Island. These tram ways never need modernizing. Keep fine things the way they are, just maintain and look after them.

From Douglas to Laxey and Ramsey via the hill/cliff top east coast route. Shame they haven't got the mountain line running as that would be a must

Had a return trip from Ramsey to Douglas on a sunny day in August. Travelled in the open carriage to appreciate the scenery. The views from the tram are magnificent and only seen from the railway. An hour in Douglas before returning. A few hours well spent and highly recommended.

Really enjoyed the return trip from Douglas to Ramsey. Friendly staff and interesting scenery. Stopped for lunch for an hour or two with a stroll around the small town. Memorable trip.

If you love a bit of vintage transport then the Isle of Man is the place for you, with the electric trams, the horse-drawn trams and steam train that this beautiful island has to offer. The Manx Electric Railway is a charming way to travel - the staff are friendly, the trams are all kept spotlessly clean and are easy to use, and it's a lovely old-fashioned way to enjoy the scenery. Loved the Isle of Man overall, it's low-profile but has loads to offer.
