Manx Electric Railway
Take an unforgettable journey along the east coast on this unique Island and railway which dates back over 100 years.
From Douglas the Electric Tram will take you north to the quaint village of Laxey and the Lady Isabella water wheel, the largest working water wheel in the world. On one side you’ll experience the beautiful Manx countryside, glens and picturesque villages and to the other you’ll have far reaching views out to sea. At Laxey you can travel further north on to Ramsey or venture up to Snaefell on the Snaefell Mountain Railway.
Trams depart from the Manx Electric Railway terminus (Derby Castle) at the Onchan end of Douglas Promenade, and can be located by the large ELECTRIC RAILWAY sign in the cliffs above.
The Manx Electric Railway operates regularly from March to late October/early November. With more than 60 official stations along the line, you can do some serious exploring!
