  The Really Big Surprise
Tram Tales of the Manx
Electric Railway # 3
 
  The third in our popular series
of children’s books has just
been published.
 
  The trams of the Manx Electric
Railway celebrate their 125th
birthday at the beginning of
September 2018. The celebrations
include a visit from Rose, one of the
horse trams from the Douglas Bay
Tramway, and her horse, Douglas.
A surprise is also planned for the
birthday, although none of the
motormen (drivers) and conductors
will tell the trams what it is.
 
  The Really Big Surprise describes
how Sven the Number Seven, and his
friends, find out what the surprise is.
 
  Based on the exploits of the trams
of the Manx Electric Railway, the
series combines accuracy with fun,
and we’ve caught several adults
reading them too – including one
or two of the tram crews!
 
  We’ll have a rest from children’s
books after this one, but there may
be more in the future – keep checking
the website and read the newsletter
for the next one.
