Easter week saw the various railways and tramways on the Isle of Man staging a Rush Hour on the Railways event with intensive timetables on all lines. The Isle of Man Steam Railway ran a two-train service on several days with additional dining trains requiring three locomotives to be in steam.
The Manx Electric Railway and Snaefell Mountain Railways both ran timetables with passengers queueing for sometimes fully-booked trams.
On the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway, operations were in full swing following the tramway’s welcome reprieve and double-deck tramcar No. 52 made a rare appearance over the Easter weekend, headed by two horses.
