The Isle of Wight once boasted 54 miles of railway, most of which was closed between 1952 and 1966. However its unique atmosphere has been perfectly preserved by the largely volunteer-run Isle of Wight Steam Railway, which began operating trains in 1971. The Railway is truly a journey back in time - a living, breathing museum! All of the carriages and most of the locomotives have spent much of their working lives here on the Island. They have all been painstakingly restored to pristine condition and are the hallmark of their delightful railway. Their oldest locomotive was built in 1876 and carriages date back to 1864! Well worth a visit while staying on the Isle of Wight.
