Failt ort, Welcome...

Douglas Bay Tramway Heritage Trust is an Isle of Man charity established to help promote and support the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway, its draught horses and its historic tramcars, with a focus on advancing education through conservation.

 
The Horse Tramway...

Douglas Bay Horse Tramway is the oldest horse-drawn passenger tramway to remain in service anywhere in the World, having opened in 1876.


Our Tramway Guide provides comprehensive information about the history of the Tramway, its present day operation and services, the tram horses and the historic tramcars.

The Heritage Trust...

Douglas Bay Tramway Heritage Trust raises funds to provide financial and other assistance with the preservation and operation of the Tramway, the promotion, upkeep and welfare of its horses, the conservation of its historic tramcars, and much more besides.


About the Trust explains our charitable purposes and objectives and how, with your kind donations, we can help to support and develop the Tramway and conserve its heritage.

The 'Trammers'...

Clydesdales and Shires are well suited to pull horse trams with their immense power, large round feet and generally good temperament.


There are currently twenty-five of these heavy draught horses with the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway. Click here to meet the 'Trammers' and find out how you can support their upkeep.
 
Tramcar No.32...

The Trust is raising money to help with the restoration of 'Sunshade' Tramcar No.32 to near original design, condition and livery as part of the Tramway's designated "Museum Fleet".


Tramcar No.32 was the first of six tramcars of this type built by G F Milnes & Co of Birkenhead and delivered to the Douglas Bay Tramway in 1896. Click here for more information about supporting this restoration project.
