September Review – Isle of Man: No. 18 – Douglas Bay Horse Tramway
Of course the Isle of Man isn’t just about the Manx Electric Railway and although it was the 125th Anniversary of the Manx Electric Railway that was being celebrated we can’t resist the opportunity to feature some of the other tramways on the island. Today’s feature looks at some of the trams of the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway.
Shortly after no. 1 had been unloaded Andrew brings in car 36 to Derby Castle. 36 was the first horse car to enjoy a rebuild at Derby Castle after the takeover of the line by Isle of Man Railways.
Another tram to enjoy a rebuild was 45 which received central advertising boards rather than the more recently seen boards around the edge of the roof. 45 is seen here at the Sea Terminal waiting time to return back north. (Both Photographs by Gareth Prior)
