The Manx Electric Railway Museum

The Manx Electric Railway started regular services in 1893 and was, in its time, a world leader.

The Manx Electric Railway Museum was opened much more recently, in 2014, with the intention of illustrating the history of this fascinating network. Situated inside the old goods shed at the Derby Castle terminus, it's full of interesting and intriguing objects as well as information boards and models of rolling stock. After you've visited the museum, you can walk a hundred yards and take a trip on one of the trams you've just been learning about - a very real bit of history - still working today as they have been for over a century.
