An 'Island Line' train approaching Shanklin station
An 'Island Line' train approaching Shanklin station
Class 483 unit no.004. This is a '2nd generation' of ex-London Underground stock on the Isle of Wight, originally dating from 1938 and having been brought to the Island in the early 1990s. These, in turn, are soon to be replaced by trains being built by Vivarail, having ex-LT bodyshells but to be fully fitted out with new interiors. More good news for the Island line is that proposals to reopen the lines to Ventnor and to Newport are to be seriously considered under the governments 'Restoring Your Railway' plan.
