“Just to make it clear”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Just to make it clear, this attraction should really be listed under its proper name - the Isle of Man Steam Railway - as there are other (albeit smaller) steam railways on the Island.

I wrote a review under the heading of the "Isle of Man Steam Railway" but it's still shown as 'Pending', several weeks after I submitted it. Maybe one day TripAdvisor will get round to sorting it out, then I might think about writing more reviews.

“Great!!!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

It was like going back in time. The stream whistle, the chugging of the engine, the vibration of the trip, just everthing. It is the way to travel

“Stepping back in time .”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The little steam train in the Isle Of Man is a step back in time, reminds me of days gone by when I was a child, stopping at an aray of pretty little stations on you way through the lovely countryside of this quaint Island. We went from Port Erin to Douglass and really enjoyed the ride with each station having an aura of a time past,not expensive and well worth a trip so if you are ever in this lovely Island give it a try especially if you have young children.
