News and footage from an eight day visit to the MER in May. Includes car 1 on a test run, car 16 on specials plus the usual combinations on service. Cars 1+59 were hired out for a filming session on 16th May. See the trams perform a variety of odd moves and shunts at Dhoon Quarry, Lewaigue, Ballaskeig and Groudle, plus numerous run past shots and on board footage.

10 Years Ago:
A special feature from February 1995 which saw a mail tram run from Douglas to the top of Snaefell. We pick up the action with car 22 and Mail Van 4 from Douglas to Laxey, then Snaefell 2 from Laxey to Bungalow and then diesel power to the summit! This previously unseen footage shows an interesting event from the past and includes the rare sight of Snaefell cars running in the snow!
