Sub-titled: 50 years of change

All 35 Island stations that were open in the steam era are illustrated herein, along with the typical trains of that period. Also featured are the changes that have occurred on the electric line during 30 years.

Following nationalisation the principal locomotives on the island were the 0-4-4T steam engines, though small diesel shunters were used to haul engineering trains.

Few in the days of steam would have imagined former London Transport tube trains operating services on the Isle of Wight, but that is exactly what happened.

The remarkable story of the recreation of a steam railway is portrayed in detail.
