Probley true about the angles on the rails, trains running up to 70mph do not rely on side flanges to keep them running central. But use the slopes on the rails and wheels to do so, but trams clopping along at 5.72mph  prefer flat rails. So now the grinding has fucked the rails for any future electric tram/ light transportation system, and we will have to source and install new rails before this could happen.

Who would of thought, BUFFOONS down to the last man.

5.72mph? "Speeds approaching 100mph".

Interestingly the powers that be have got around to letting us yokels see the latest minutes of the My Prom adventures. These are from end of May and the first produced since January . A few points jump out !  Not sure what the Esplanade issue is but am sure someone on here with know. Incidentally Alan Burroughs from Burroughs Stewart has conveniently now retired !

Interesting, am I reading this right that DOI tried to use 'Covid Capital Funding' of £2m for the horse trams?

What would be wrong with that? There is only one pot. It's normal for organisations to move money from one fund to another. Its irrelevant really and example of 'no news'

Thanks for your input, Ian. 

I guess it is 'no news' if you think a fund designed to help revive the economy post-covid should be used to bail out a government scheme that's gone overbudget.

I didn't say that. And no I don't.

It's a fact. All organisations do it. 

Sorry if it offends your polarised views. 

They don’t. Must be getting close to pay day now for you DOI apologists.

Just a couple of observations.

Our car reads every road sign in the island successfully, apart from the ones notifying people of the 20mph limit on the prom. If my car can’t see them then they aren’t positioned properly and neither can drivers.

I notice they have had to add another no entry sign at the Douglas City Centre Horse Tram Interchange.  Presumably because people were not seeing the designed signage.

If you can't "see" the signs then you should probably hand your driving licence back.
