Step back in time for a journey you will never forget, experience the grandeur of travelling between Douglas and the south of the Island on a Victorian railway, perfectly frozen in time.
Sit back, relax and enjoy a journey through the beautiful and ever changing Manx countryside thanks to Victorian engineering that has well and truly stood the test of time.
Children will love travelling on the train line especially if they are Thomas the Tank Engine fans. Thomas and the Magic Railroad film was made here on the Isle of Man.
Opened in 1874, this narrow gauge railway still runs with its original locomotives and carriages, through an ever changing landscape, to a choice of destinations in the south of the Island, these include the ancient monastery of Rushen Abbey, the impressive Castle Rushen, the Old House of Keys and the Nautical Museum all within the ancient capital Castletown and within walking distance of the town's station. A really good reason to purchase a Go Explore card. Further down the line there are a number of sheltered, sandy beaches, and the IoM Steam Railway Museum at Port Erin.
