The Modern Tramway Journal returned to look at the Manx Electric Railway in 1962, five years after nationalisation, to assess progress. ...

The report was divided between the June and July 1962 editions of the journal. ...

This is a third article about railways in the Isle of Man. Each is a retrospective, looking back at events in the history of the railways.

Modern Tramway Journal included a short article in October 1963 about developments in 1899 on the Isle of Man, and particularly about the use of 'Bonner Wagons' by the Isle of Man Tramways and Electric Power Company Limited which became the Manx Electric Railway.
