footplate experiences

For that special occasion, a very special gift or to satisfy a dream, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is delighted to offer a unique footplate experience. 




For the price of £80.00 you will enjoy a full round trip on the footplate of the day’s service locomotive.




Following a briefing you will join the footplate crew. For approximately one hour you will stand alongside and observe the driver and fireman as the locomotive travels 10 miles through beautiful Island countryside.




After your trip you will receive a souvenir certificate to mark your experience.




Full details are below. To enquire further or to book the experience please telephone Liz Tagart on the Events Team at the Railway on 01983 885924 (direct) or 01983 882204 (general number).








To be able to join us for this Experience you must:

* Be in good health and reasonably fit (i.e. able to climb on and off the locomotives from the ground)

* Arrive at Havenstreet Station Commercial office 30 mins before the departure time

* Wear good footwear that will protect your feet

* Wear clothing that fully covers your arms and legs

* Not attend the experience under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Footplate Experience Certificate
Booking this as a treat or for a special event? Footplate Experience Vouchers can be 
purchased and the recipient can liaise directly with us to arrange and book the experience.

To make the day extra special you might want to add a delicious cream tea for two and First Class Day Travel Tickets.

PLEASE NOTE: Locomotives cannot be specified for this experience and are subject to availability.
