Tram Tales of the Manx
Electric Railway # 1
 
  Why should all the good books be about steam trains? The trams of the Manx Electric Railway (MER) celebrate their 125th birthday this year and have lots of stories to tell.  
  We’ve seen so many children really enjoying their day out on the MER that we thought they’d probably enjoy reading something about the trams’ adventures.  
  Something on the Line tells how a dinosaur strayed onto the MER line, and how the trams all worked together to sort things out. Twain, the youngest tram, had to be particularly brave when he ventured into dinosaur country.
  The book is the first in a new series ‘Tram Tales of the MER’. Other books in the series will be out later in the year.
