WATCH: Railway safety taken seriously, says chief minister

The Chief Minister says calling a halt to services on the Snaefell Mountain Railway shows how seriously government has taken the safety issues.  

Howard Quayle MHK says the incident involving a tram rolling down the hill with passengers on board earlier this year highlights the challenges of operating a heritage railway in a modern, safe environment.

The Department of Infrastructure have promised to commit the expertise of the railway engineering staff to dealing with the matters.

Mr Quayle says he hopes the issues surrounding the railway will be overcome for the start of the next season.
