“Be One of the Railway Children for an Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

It's like stepping back in time. A gentle ride on an old steam train through the the beautiful Manx countryside. And the stations are a marvel.

“great trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

get there early to ensure you get on as popular even out of season. great views along the way. plenty of stops to get off and either go for walks or sights to see. have a look at the railway museum at port erin station.only £1 to get in. small but worth it.
