Open, the new tram tracks

                          Alternative travel


The tram tracks have undergone an update and renovation during the closed winter period. General maintenance and shiny new cables, and paved and painted. A popular way for tourists to view the island, by tram all the way from Ramsey, through Laxey when you can depart for Snaefell Mountian, or continue on to Douglas. It's a long ride, so if you're in a hurry bus or car might be for you, but on a sunny lazy day, a slower ride through the Manx landscape might be the way to go. If you don't mind a bit of a chill sit in the outdoor car, as it's a great vantage point for photography.

I would love to explore your beautiful Island by tram. Heck, I'd love to explore it in any way at all. If only my wish for a magic carpet would come true!

I remember travelling in the outdoor carriage when I was a child.....
Brrrr !
It was wet and windy and my brother and I moaned all the way to Douglas.
We were rewarded with a mug of Ovaltine and a Wagon Wheel chocolate biscuit, popular in the 50's,

best wishes,

Very cool composition. I'd take the adventure and vantage point for phototaking any day.
