Fab vintage transport

A must if you are visiting the Island, we took a car but couldn't resist the steam trains. A great way to visit the South of the Island.

Imagine going back in time to a period of Steam!! This is a working museum, great to see all the different engines,dinner on the train is an amazing experience. Putting the window down and smelling the smoke and hearing the clicking of the wheels on the tracks. I love it!!

Had a hire car but also good to use the scenic trains to get to some spots. Fairly reasonably priced and was nice to sit out look out the window and take in the scenery.

Just returned from our Christmas lunch on the steam train. A great experience and certainly different? The food and wine were great and the staff attentive and friendly. A fine start to our Festivities! M, K,V,C and J

Absolutely loved seeing the Island on the steam railway and the ancient electric trams. Just wish I had worn warmer clothes as it was freezing, especially as we climbed Snaefell in a tram which felt like it could fall apart at any moment! Loved the whole experience!
