£2m to 'Save the Horse Trams' (don't worry, not tax-payer's money)

Recommended Posts

The Manx Electric Railway Society have launched a 30 day Crowd-Funding Campaign to save the horse trams. They hope to raise £2,000,000.

I suspect that they haven't really done their sums properly here!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are looking at funds for possible court action. Athol Street lawyers will be rubbing their hands with glee ................. ££££££££ kerching!

£70 raised so far. Absolutely deluded.

How can you say that? In the last 4 hours alone it's gone from £70 all the way up to £70.

Save them from what? I thought they were staying and we were footing the bill.

Well lads, donations are pouring in. An anonymous has donated £200 with the quote "Stop this EVIL", so we're getting there. We are now 0.01% of the way there

Well at this rate, it will only take 81 years to reach their target, which may actually be OK, as it seems unlikely the DoI will actually be ready to start any reconstruction work in that timeframe.

It's still at £270 with 20 days to go!

Maybe this will be the realisation for the Manx Electric Railway Society that nobody outside of their organisation actually gives two fucks about the horse trams.
