Horse Trams around the World...

Whilst the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway is the oldest horse-drawn passenger tramway in the World to be running its original route with original tramcars, there are a number of historical and modern horse-drawn passenger tramways operating in other countries, as well as museums and tramway systems around the World where periodically you can experience an authentic horse tram ride.
