Celebrating 150 Years of Rail on the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is celebrating 150 years of rail - Tickets go on Sale 1st July


This year, the Isle of Wight celebrates 150 years of rail and is hosting a day of events across the island to honour the special anniversary.  On Saturday 30th August, residents and visitors to the island can join in with a series of celebrations that will be taking place across a variety of rail locations on the island. 

These events will give people a chance to step back in time and travel through 150 years of rail transport and life on the Isle of Wight. Celebrations will include a vintage vehicle display at Ryde St Johns Road, as well as steam fairs, stalls and not to be missed entertainment across a large selection of the island’s stations. Ryde Esplanade Travel Centre will host the IWR 150 Exhibition display, Brading Station will also be hosting a 1950s day which will include signal box tours as well as vintage and memorabilia stalls.

Visitors to Shanklin station will be partying through 150 years with entertainment for all ages, wandering through a selection of local traders' stalls and vintage vehicles whilst enjoying  a refreshing drink in the Pimms tent or sampling some Rail Ale.

To ensure everybody can get involved with all of the festivities, the tickets include unlimited rail travel on all Island Line services, as well as unlimited travel on the Isle of Wight Steam railway and a return vintage bus ride between Shanklin and Ventnor Gardens. Discounted admittance for Ventnor Botanic Gardens is also included in the ticket.  

Tickets will be available to buy in advance for just £18.64 from 1st July 2104 by telephoning the Steam Railway on 01983 882204.  Or there will be the opportunity to buy tickets on the day for £20.00 from the Booking Office when you arrive.

For anybody wanting to visit the island from the mainland for this anniversary, there will be the opportunity to purchase combination tickets with the ferry companies.

This event is supported by the Isle of Wight Rail Community Partnership.
