Step aboard Winter Saloon car No.19 in 1995 with former MER Society Chairman - the late Mike Goodwyn. During the course of the full journey between Douglas and Ramsey, Mike provides a unique insight into the railway and its long and eventful history.

It’s an eye opening experience comparing the state of the track and overhead as it was back in 1995, and how it is now having benefitted from multi-million-pound investment over the last fifteen years. It is widely acknowledged that the MER, particularly the northern section, is in the best condition probably since the line was completed through to Ramsey in 1899.
