IWSR Rescue Stranded Island Line Passengers

Just before 11am this morning the Island Line train heading for Ryde failed with what appeared to be a total power failure at Smallbrook Junction. At the time it happened the Isle of Wight Steam Railway train was also at Smallbrook Junction on the opposite platform. 

The steam train was held whilst a decision was made to de-train the 20 Island Line passengers who were transported by steam train to Havenstreet, where waiting taxis took the passengers on to Ryde.

Peter Vail, General Manager of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway commented “We were only too pleased to be of assistance. It was a little ironic that our locomotive in service is the newly restored Ivatt 41298 which was built in 1951. This is modern technology compared to the 1938 tube stock operated by Island Line.”
