Horse trams to resume next week

The horse trams will be return to service next week after the health of the horses improved.

The trams had to be suspended earlier this month when a number of horses came down with a respiratory issue, which is said to be common among horses.

The animals have been receiving anti-biotics and welfare checks, and the vet is happy with their recovery.

Isle of Man Railways plan to ease the horses back into service from Wednesday with a reduced timetable, operating only between 10am and 4pm for the first week before being assessed again.
