Across the Irish Sea – 2

Looking through all the pictures Allan and Ron have given me, it has been tricky to post them in a logical manner.  Although Ron has provided me with his usual day-by-day (including their ailments), it’s a small island, and they visited some places more than ones.

So I think that I’ll post these pictures by location and subject.  And we’ll start with the Douglas Bay horse trams.  These nearly became extinct (the trams, not the horse) but there was such an outcry that the lines have been repaired and I think relayed in places, albeit for a shorter length of line.

Douglas Bay.


The pictures capture the first day of tram operation for a number of years.  Surely, this has to be the greenest way to travel!


And a visit to the tram sheds.

Did they get the red carpet out for Allan & Ron – or for the horse?


Last for today, a few pictures of Ramsey bus garage.
