It is so very important that timeless classics like the Isle of Man narrow gauge steam railway are supported. We always make a point of travelling on this railway and highly recommend it to all and especially those who may travel to the Isle for the first time.

A must if you are visiting the Island, we took a car but couldn't resist the steam trains. A great way to visit the South of the Island.

Imagine going back in time to a period of Steam!! This is a working museum, great to see all the different engines,dinner on the train is an amazing experience. Putting the window down and smelling the smoke and hearing the clicking of the wheels on the tracks. I love it!!

Had a hire car but also good to use the scenic trains to get to some spots. Fairly reasonably priced and was nice to sit out look out the window and take in the scenery.
