“Rural rails”

Manx Electric Railway
Ranked #2 of 44 things to do in Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Running from Douglas to Ramsey, with a connection for the Snaefell Mountain Railway at Laxey, the wooden bodied trams clunk, screech and roll their way along. Running in pairs, one is enclosed and pulls another that is open sided and thus benefits from the fresh air. Take a jumper!
Like the steam railway, it gives an appreciation of the Manx countryside and very pleasant it is too.

A wonderful way to pass an afternoon and get to the top of Snaefell, the highest mountain on the Isle of Man. A little pricey, but the views from the top - we were blessed with a very clear day - are well worth the money. Dogs allowed too.

Very good, but not the weak! After an hour I was feeling the need for a soft seat and means of resting weary bones. It's very jerky!!
But it's great fun. The health & safety bores may have something to say about the open carridges. but they haven't lost anyone yet.
It's good fun.

A trip not to be missed, views to die for and friendly staff. I could do it all again. Would like to go back with my grandsons, they would love it.
