A good heritage line; as is often the case, railways do run through cuttings as well as embankments so there is not always a view. Nice cup of tea at the Douglas terminus.

Good fun and makes travel south from Douglas an easy venture.
Older folk will enjoy travel like they used to and younger people will enjoy the novelty.

We took a trip from Douglas to Castletown where we walked to the harbour and visited the Nautical Museum before catching the next train back to Douglas

Superb ride with lovely scenery, all behind a historic Victorian locomotive

Nice ride with well maintained carriages and stations. Staff were very helpful. Expected more scenic views than we got. Timetable easy to understand. Not too crowded.

A great way to visit Port Erin for seaside walks and a glass of lunch in the Bay Hotel. The museum at Port Erin Station is worth a visit, as is a stop at Castletown on the way back
