    We were there in April, and the HORSE TRAMS, we rode many times, and it was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip, and this is history, and should be left, we loved the romance of the ride, and love the slow, clicketey clack of the horse hooves and seeing all the sights, slowly, and enjoying morning and eveinng rides, take away the Horse Tramway, and you have have taken away the HEART of what the Isle of about, slow and lovely living, don't let progress deny the love of the past, and present, this is what makes the Isle so SPECIAL, the Horse Trams.

    Leave it alone. It is the heritage of the island.

    My family and I are annual visitors to the Island. Its unique transport heritage is one of the big attractions for us and the downgrading of the Horse Tramway from a real form of transport to a theme park ride would greatly detract from this.

    This unique attraction deserves better. Or does the IOM no longer wish to encourage tourism?
