Railway season extended

Monday, 14 September 2020

The Isle of Man Steam Railway and Manx Electric Railway will both run for an additional three weeks, following a successful season catering for Island residents and visitors from Guernsey. 

The routes have carried more than 27,000 passengers since services resumed towards the end of July. 

The Steam Railway will operate Thursday to Sunday this week, and then run at weekends only until October 4. The Manx Electric Railway will run today and tomorrow (Monday-Tuesday) and then also provide services at weekends only until October 4. 

Infrastructure Minister Tim Baker MHK said:

‘I’m delighted we have been able to extend the seasons on both routes and I know the staff involved are looking forward to welcoming passengers on board into the autumn.’ 

The dining trains have proved extremely popular, with the majority of services selling out over the summer season, and will continue to operate Thursday to Sundays until 4 October. Visit for a full list of events and call 697457 or email to make a booking.
