I've signed, too.
A summary of what has been agreed at the latest meeting on 17th January of The Tynwald can be found here:Spoiler alert: don't read on if you want to see the surprise news on the telly!
But my hunch is...
I have just returned from a few days on the Island, which included an evening with a well-informed local enthusiast. The rumour is that the horse trams will be double track from Derby Castle down to the Villa Marina, and single from there to the Sea Terminal. There also seem to be plans to install overhead electrics and run the MER down to the Villa Marina. The stable building is not in a good state though.
Yes. Just have to find the photo, but a guy called Kerry Willard had one running at Rail-Ex 2017 in NZ,But more to the point has anyone been able to articulate a G scale horse to look like its pulling a G scale Horse tram?
The Douglas Horse Tramway has just published it's summer timetable and here's a link to the Friends of Douglas Bay Horse Tramway. Certainly not closing and so still the oldest in the world I think.Sooooo this would mean that Our Aussie Granite Island horse tramway is probably the last in continuous service. We also have the only Purrey Steam tram in the world too.... We colonials are looking up.
