Isle of Wight Steam Railway

There was once a network of railway lines serving the Isle of Wight. Almost all were closed down in the 1950s and 1960s, leaving just one remaining line linking Ryde Pier with Shanklin.

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is a "heritage" railway run by volunteers, which has restored services to section of line between Wootton and Smallbrook. At Smallbrook the line ends at a specially-built station, where passengers can interchange with the Ryde to Shanklin train service.
