Railway Cavalcade - The Unique Railways of the Isle of Man Download - Description

The Isle of Man has the most extraordinary collection of transport systems in the world. Not just the oldest surviving electric tramway and the world's only vintage horse tramway, it also has Britain's only electric mountain railway, a Victorian narrow gauge steam railway, a Victorian Glen railway and a mines railway with the narrowest gauge in the British Isles which leads to the world's largest water wheel, still turning today.

With all these railways running throughout the season there's a lot to celebrate and each year the Island puts on a spectacular series of events. 2016 saw the 140th anniversary of the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway as well as special transport festivals featuring traveling post offices, World War II re-enactments with military vehicles, a crashed spitfire on the mountain, musical entertainment and lots of opportunities for enthusiasts to enjoy special runs on both the steam and electric systems. 

This programme covers all of the main events and gives a general background to the remarkable railways that have survived on the Isle of Man. Using the latest cameras along with drone footage, this is an intimate and remarkable record of just one year in the world's premier railway destination.
