The original vehicles take you up the mountain and the commentary tells you what you can see as you ascend and descend. The Go card covers your fare

Loved this. A lovely clear sunny day although cold at the summit. Beautiful. Scenery. A really. Great adventure that is a must while visiting the island. Only downside was the awful female staff in restaurant. No manners. Quite rude ,, tip do not. Buy food. Take a flask & sandwiches. Overpriced and awful hospitality. Ungrateful no please or Thankyou from this lot.

I am into transport stuff and the wife likes her scenic stuff so a trip on the tram/railway fulfils both our tick boxes.
It was very busy at the time we went due to coach parties travelling as well so be prepared to wait.
The visit was combined with trips on the electric tram system.
The rolling stock is the original so built for the smaller Victorians

Had to wait for train as very popular. 15 minutes - not too long. Pleasant journey with commentary on way. Time for coffee to go.
Weather was on our side. Could actually see surrounding stunning views albeit cold!

We arrived around 10.30 – bought our tickets and joined the queue – the train only takes 46 passengers – all seated no standing – one amongst us at the back had already counted and we were destined for the next train – then it was announced that instead of 4 trains only 2 were running – we were assured that these trains were running on a continuous loop – so once at the summit they were turning around almost immediately

So we waited – 25 minutes later a train arrived – we boarded and were soon underway – 30 minutes to the top with a commentary – great views of the Laxey Wheel - once at the top – views became tantalising as the cloud descended and the wind blew in the rain – then like magic different vistas appeared – we made our way to the top – took the pictures – and returned on the same train we had arrived on – to some extent is not about the view but the experience of travelling on a transport from a bygone age – everyone was very friendly and helpful – and for an hour’s entertainment it is well priced – thank you
