Manx Electric Railway

The Manx Electric Railway is a unique electric vintage railway over 100 years old connecting Douglas, Laxey and Ramsey in the Isle of Man. Dating from 1893, Manx Electric Railway consists of open and closed tramcars which carry passengers along the east coast from Ramsey to Douglas, via Laxey.

All of the operational trams are original, with Trams 1 and 2 the oldest dating back to 1893 and are the oldest electric tramcars still at work on their original line in the world. The Manx Electric Railway is also the longest narrow gauge vintage railway in the British Isles; 17 miles long from terminus to terminus.

The railway's route offers some of the best coastal views on the Isle of Man, from the breathtaking heights of Bulgham Rocks to the pretty Maughold countryside, through countryside, glens and villages and with the sea visible for most of the way, this is a great way to see the island and is popular with tourists.

A service operates year-round, although less frequently in the winter months, there is no better way to travel around the island than the Manx Electric Railway. It is about a 45 minute ride from Douglas to Laxey and then another 45 minutes from Laxey to Ramsey. There are usually two seating options, outside or inside. The inside seats are ideal if it is cold or wet, but the outside seats are best if you really want to take in the scenery.
