Horse Trams

Recommended Posts

A lot more people there than we generally have, none of them seem tram aware either?

 

Perhaps once off the main roadway, our tram horses can walk instead of trotting too. I imagine that they are only trying to keep pace with the traffic anyway? It would give a better experience for visitors and maybe they can get rid of their stupid hi-viz stuff too?

We have actually learned much from Disney and their transport systems already.

 

The horse tram and bus services here are clearly Mickey Mouse operations.

Yesterday was a very sad day for the Isle of Man. Douglas Council decided to scrap the horse trams for good.

 

It is very hard to understand why such an historic tramway should be consigned to history, when money can be found for what are little more than vanity projects.

 

The people who voted for this closure last night will go down in the history books as making their own personal contribution to the decline and fall of this beautiful island.

The horse trams will get in the way of the new motorbike racing events on the Promenade.

Douglas Corporation are total fucking wankers.

 

Every single one of them.

 

Especially their dickhead leader. He's the biggest prick of the lot.

This was always going to happen. All of this crap about moving it was just to wear people down for this inevitable conclusion. I hope they run them for a few weeks so my bairns can enjoy one last trip that their kids never will

I just hate it when people sit on the fence and don't say what they really mean. :-)

They'll have their mates waiting to buy the stables and attached buildings, why don't we just be done with it and give the whole of the Isle of man to Dandara?

Sadly you are probably right but if the "powers that be" cannot grasp the fact that the horse trams are part of the Islands heritage and if that continues to be destroyed then the 'vintage transport enthusiasts' will be discouraged from visiting.

 

One hopes that Central Government will take it on , failing that , enthusiasts should be given a chance to run the service before the numpty's sell off the stables and associated premises.

I am really sad about this and truly disgusted.

 

On a side note, has anyone got any contacts that are involved with the horses? There was a nice dun that I wouldn't mind offering a home to.

 

This place is going to the dogs

 

Hell in a fucking hand cart thumbsup.gif
