“Trip to Laxey.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The trip was really nice. A leisurely run to Laxey in a tramcar running beside the road. Couldn't ask for better.

“Great way to see the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We love Manx Electric Railway. It's such a novel way to see the island. The route along the coast is breath taking on a beautiful day.

“Electric Railway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The Electric Railway takes you to Laxey and the Snaefell Mountain Railway - or if you want to go futher east it takes you to Ramsey. All well worth exploring and complete with lovely scenery.
