Thomas the Tank Engine was inspired by the Island's railways and the feature film Thomas and the Magic Railroad was filmed on the Isle of Man.
It's possible to see the majority of the Island by travelling on the railway network and many of the Island's heritage attractions are also located near to the railway stops making it easy to get around.
