“Steam in Man”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

A beautifully restored railway travelling through the southern Manx countryside. If you like good scenery, steam trains, and real ale pubs aplenty, then this is the steam train for you

“Isle of Man STeam Railway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

Great day out with great views of the island. The little steam trains exude character, and the stations in Douglas and Port Erin are really well located.

highly recommended

“Great Journey!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

A great journey from Douglas to Port Erin in around an hour.
Quite good value for money for a very scenic trip.
The only downside is that the service has finished by 5pm at this time of year.

“Steam all the way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

The trains run for most of the year and if you time it right you can get a train to & from Ronaldsway Airport but remember to hold your hand out if you want it to stop to pick up or tell the guard you wish to get off as the airport is a reequest stop.

My only complaint is that it is not an hourly service in the winter
