Transport Festival this month

The Island's wealth of vintage transport will be out in all its glory at this summer's Manx Heritage Transport Festival.

It'll be tram and train heaven for enthusiasts, over five fully-packed days from July 28.

The programme includes extra services to the Island's most stunning locations; late runs up Snaefell for sunset tours and dinner; shuttles to the Glens; and a chance to have your photo taken on the footplate of a steamed loco.

Also planned - an outing for the oldest working tram car in the world, unusual train and tram formations, vintage buses, and a film show about the Island's railways in the 1960s.
