She is an elegant carriage, Brian.
Brian Walbey: She is indeed Ray, I think we got to ride on this one.
She is a fine looking tram Brian....she has been well cared for since 1898...i like your montage showing it going and coming back....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Yes she is as you say Peter, but all the trams here have been really well refurbished.

It must have been perishing in winter Brian.
Brian Walbey: These were for summer use only I think Chad. The Isle of Man ones like this have roller shutters that can be pulled down at the side of each rank of seats.

You would hope the rain fell straight downa no side wind,good looking tram
Brian Walbey: You would indeed vintage. Some trams had roller blinds that pulled down by each rank of seats. These were really only for summer use I believe.

Brian Walbey: It is indeed, Bill, thanks.

Good to see the driver posing in the larger image. It looks a fine old tram but I bet it was hated by the drivers at the time for the open cabs with the winds and rains off the Irish Sea. Perhaps we were all more stoic in those days?
Brian Walbey: We probably were Alan. I think these would only have been used in the summer months, the winter trams were usually closed in, well the IOM.ones were/are anyway.
That's a real oldie!
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Tom, thanks.

Brian Walbey: Yes it is quite refreshing on a hot day to enjoy the breeze when one rides on an open tram.

Well you learn something everyday - I thought they had always been cream & green! Nice shot on the left.
Brian Walbey: Perhpas this was an earlier version of their paint scheme Mike.
Wonderful pictures.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Francis.
These make good subjects, nice to see the passengers on-board, without stray people milling around and making it untidy smile
Brian Walbey: I moved away from the area where passengers usually congregate, these shots are where the line moves into the countryside area.
