“Great Views a trip back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went on the electric railway from Ramsey to Douglas, the views were stunning, and it was as quick as the bus! Staff were very friendly. It was like a trip back in time, like going to Disney but the real thing!

“Good long ride to Top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

It really is a marvellous ride with fantastic views, you really do feel special as you are swept along on this old rickity train. It can be a bit uncomfortable if you are sat on the end of the seat. ( I think it is better the lighter you are) The cafe at the top of Snaefell has really reasonable prices and the pub in Laxey has lovely real ale. The railway visits lots of places so you can make a good day out of it or buy a ticket which lasts right though your holiday for all transport great if you have no vehicle with you.
