Summer Transport Festival

30 July - 04 August 2024

The Isle of Man is deservingly described as a railway enthusiast’s paradise – and it would be hard to argue with that. With its collection of unique narrow-gauge railways that traverse the Island, skirting its coastal cliff tops, leafy glens and mountainous moorlands, there really is no better place to be on aboard an historic train.  

The Summer Transport Festival, undoubtedly one of the most popular events in the calendar for train lovers, provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate our wonderful steam and electric railway network – in minute detail. With trips and stop offs, as well as workshop, museum, station and sidings visits, the Festival is a week-long celebration of all things rail related.

As always, the network’s locomotives, freight wagons, trams and trailers will be the star attractions.

The Manx Steam Railway recently celebrated its 150th anniversary and the Manx Electric Railway is not far behind, having chalked up 130 years in existence. They are both still going strong, ably supported by some truly dedicated staff, who take huge pride in their upkeep and maintenance of the rolling stock.

To ensure your 2024 Summer Transport Festival is the best ever, Isle of Man Events have created some fabulous packages, to make your stay the most all-encompassing it could possibly be.  

If you are attending for the first time, you are in for a real treat. If 2024 is a return trip, it’s easy to see why. We look forward to having you onboard – with a quick proviso: don’t delay in making your booking, as the event is heavily subscribed - and accommodation is snapped up fast.
