The Isle of Man Steam Railway is an iconic piece of living Manx history that serves both as a functional means of getting from Port Erin to Douglas during the summer months, and as a mean or organising local events.
The true Victorian marvel opened in 1874 and, as well as being the longest narrow gauge steam line in Britain still runs with its original carriages and locomotives. The current southern route, which runs through several ideal locations for sightseeing on the Island, is around 25 kilometres long and was formerly part of a larger steam network connecting the rest of the Island. Much of the disused tracks in the North of the Island are now perfect locations for cycling and walking, offering great locations to view the Manx countryside.
The railway runs through a number of stops which, with the option of taking a bike onto the train, are ideal places to hop off and explore some of the Islands wildlife and countryside which would otherwise be hidden during a car journey.
