Join us for our 3rd Diesel Gala and a rare opportunity to see our diesel locomotives at work. For 3 days the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is handed over to diesel locomotion.

Please note that NO STEAM TRAINS will be running during this event – all passenger services will be hauled by diesel. 

2 x visiting Class 03 Diesel locomotives, 03 197 & 03 399 accompanying our very own Class 03 D2509.

This will be the first time since 1996 Locomotive 03 399 has left Mangapps Railway Museum in Burnham-on Crouch, Essex following major overhaul work.

One of the visiting locomotives, 03 399 was allocated to Weymouth Shed in 1962 and may have shared the shed with one of our steam engines, Ivatt 41 298.
