Work ongoing to develop wheelchair-adapted tram on Snaefell Mountain Railway

Concern over lack of accessibility on heritage rail network

The Department of Infrastructure says work is ongoing to develop a wheel-chair adapted tram for the Snaefell Mountain Railway.

It's after a resident with mobility issues told Manx Radio they struggled to come aboard the Island's heritage railway due to a lack of disabled access.

The DOI says: 'The heritage rail team are always available to help passengers using wheelchairs and those with limited mobility. 

'The Manx Electric Railway has a wheelchair-adapted trailer, which does need to be pre-booked but has been carrying passengers successfully for some years.'
