Last horse tram until 2016

Today (Sunday) marks the last day in the 2014 horse tram season.

To mark the event the horse tram stables at Strathallen are having an open afternoon between 2pm and 5pm when visitors can call in.

Talks will be given by Mike Crellin of the horse tram service and a face painter will be on site for children who travel free over the weekend.

The horse tram service is to be temporarily suspended in 2015 while road repairs and upgrading are carried out along Douglas promenades. The double tram tracks running down the centre of the road are to be replaced by a single track with passing places which will run at the side of the road next to the marine gardens.

To mark the temporary suspension of the service, Douglas mayor Stan Cain will be driving the season’s last tram setting out from Strathallen at 5.20pm.

St. Heliers 3 Star Family run Guest House, Douglas Promenade Isle of Man. St Heliers offer Sea Views, Single, Twin, En Suites and Family rooms, a lift to all floors and Resident’s Bar – dogs welcome.
