There used to be a small network of railways on the Isle of Wight. Most were closed in the 1950s and 1960s leaving just one survivor, the line from Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin. This line was electrified using the third-rail system, but work was carried out in a tunnel at Ryde to prevent flooding. This resulted in the tunnel being too small for full-height trains. Since then, the railway on the Isle of Wight has been operated by old London Underground "tube" trains.
