Tram takeover a leg-up for campaign

Supporters of the Island's historic horse trams, which faced closure after 140 years, say they will make retaining their service an election issue.

Friends of Douglas Bay Horse Tramway say they are relieved at news the trams are to continue this summer - but concerned about the long-term future.

The Department of Infrastructure stepped in last week after Douglas council said it could no longer fund the loss-making trams.

They're to be run this summer as part of the DoI's railways operation, sharting resources and know-how - but the tramway's future beyond that depends on promenade redevelopment plans.

The Friends' spokesman Stuart Mullan says it's important people show the trams are valued - by using them.
