The ride on the MER to Ramsey should not be missed, it's a wonderfully scenic ride on a unique tramway, twisting and turning, up and over the hills and along the coast. A Manx Electric Railway tram at Douglas (Derby Castle) terminus, at the north end of Douglas' 2-mile-long promenade.The Manx Electric Railway runs every 30-60 minutes from mid-morning to late afternoon, taking 30 minutes to Laxey and 1 hour 15 minutes to Ramsey. There's a small ticket office, and a pub next to the terminus if you need refreshment.The most famous and luxurious hotel in town is the Sefton, the Empress is also a good choice.As the spring weather entices more people to take to the roads to enjoy the warm temperatures and scenery, we remind everyone to be more aware of other road users.

CYCLISTS can take their bicycles to 'Dr Bike' soon to make sure they are healthy with the free medical card passes.A simple change of tram at Laxey station gets you onto the Snaefell Mountain Railway. The Steam Railway station is at the south end of town, just inland from the Sea Terminal.An offshoot of the Manx Electric Railway opened in 1899, it links Laxey with the summit of the Isle of Man's one and only true mountain, the 2,036-feet-high Snaefell. The delightful Isle of Man Steam Railway links Douglas with Castletown and Port Erin to the south, from March to November with roughly hourly departures mid-morning into the afternoon.
