ISLAND HERITAGE TRAIN DAYS - June

REF NR: 5841

Head back to the past to discover how the Island railways provided our daily transport. This included not only taking people to work or school, or to the shops, but also taking livestock and farm produce to market and shops. Goods were also distributed around the Island, often having been imported via one of the Island’s ports. Coal was the Island’s largest import. 

On Island Heritage Train Days, we will endeavour to operate at least one locomotive with Island pedigree and run our heritage goods train or recall the days of the scenic Ventnor West branch by running our pull/push set 484.

Visitors may also be transported back to the 1950s and 1960s and see an early British Railways’ era ballast train operating along the line, hauled by our heritage BR Class 03 diesel D2059. 

As usual, we encourage visitors to explore our Train Story Discovery Centre and learn the story of our Victorian and Edwardian railway vehicles, and their lasting impact on all our lives.
