Isle of Man Heritage Railways

A horsecar or horse-drawn tram is an animal-powered streetcar or tram. It is one of the earliest forms of public transport. The Douglas Horse Trams have been in existence on the Isle of Man since 1876.

The Manx Electric Railway was built between 1893 and 1899 and connects the Island’s capital, Douglas, with Laxey in the east and Ramsey in the north. Two of the trams in use are the oldest regularly operated tram cars in the world.

It looks as like originally two stamps were attached.
