Manx fun

We’re just back from the Isle of Man! An early departure from home last Monday, to catch the ferry from Liverpool to Douglas; home again yesterday evening – six full days, with never a dull moment. There’s the steam railway to Port Erin, the electric railway to Laxey and Ramsey, the mountain railway to the top of Snaefell, the Douglas horse tramway (just a very short section in use at present), the Groudle Glen railway – and last – and least! – the 19″ gauge mines railway at Laxey. Lots of non-railway interest too. There will be more over the coming days – in the meantime, here are a few tasters

    Interesting. I paid a visit to the Isle of Man in 2010 (if my memory serves me right) and went to see all the train-related things you mention. Brilliant!

    P.S. And the Manx queenies are really good too 😉
