Great day out on Steam Railway

Lovely day out visiting Port Erin and Castletown. The trains were reliable with separate compartments.

Nostalgic train ride
Oct 2021 • Family
We got the train from Douglas to Castletown while staying on the island. The train seemed busy without being completely full. Saw quite a bit of the Manx countryside while being bounced about in the carriage (which was actually quite fun). There is plenty of train memorabilia on display and a little model railway at Castletown station. My only advice is to check the train times as it is 2 hours till the next train if you just miss it.

Wife and I did the Manxman Sunday lunch trip today.
Oct 2021
This trip involves a steam hauled trip from Douglas to Castletown and back.
Appetiser and main course is served on the way out and the dessert is served on the way back.
The food was tasty, well presented and filling.
The staff were tremendous! To serve so many meals on a moving train is not easy and involves them moving through the train dozens of times.
Great value. Just sorry there is not another trip before we have to go home.
Well done to the loco crew as well for the smooth trip.

Very enjoyable

Our recent "Arabian Nights" dining train experience was well worth doing. Excellent food in a wonderfully furnished carriage with comfortable seats. The gentle pace of the train was ideal for relaxing as we ate some superb dishes with a good wine and excellent service.

Loved the whole experience of travelling on the old steam railway. The trains look great, the scenery is beautiful and we enjoyed our stops at Port Erin and Castletown.

Dining Train

We usually take the train to Port Erin whenever we're on the island, & this time we also booked onto the Dining-Train for the Pie & Mash Special. This is a leisurely experience, & we loved it! The food was plain, hot & sufficient, & the staff not so plain, very efficient & we don't know about hot! If you're bound for Man, check the timetables for this evening experience.

Take the train to Port Erin.
Sep 2021
A great little railway, superbly maintained and comfortable. Very pleasant scenery, passing through many quaint little towns and villages. Its terminus in Port Erin is in walking distance to the beach and promenade and all the town's amenities and shops. Well worth a trip.

Lovely trip, comfortable, even better if you choose the dining experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
Enjoyed 2 trips on this atmospheric steam train in comfortable old carriages. One trip was to Port Erin and the other was on the lunchtime dining special to Castletown.. Here we were looked after, not rushed, enjoyed some cask ale, lovely food and great service. All whilst watching the scenery go by. Give it a go.

Great trip

What a lovely way to travel. The train was comfortable and the views were spectacular. Make sure you check the timetable as the train does not run every day.

Pie and Mash
Sep 2021 • Family
Pie and Mash train trip was great. Brilliant choice of food and drinks. Excellent service. Carriage comfortable and views great on the way there when it was light. On the way back it was cosy in the carriage with the lights on.
