ISLAND RAIL NEWS

The Island Rail News is a bright and glossy magazine published four times each year and is distributed by post to all members mid February, mid May, mid August and mid November. In addition, the magazine is available to purchase for £3.00 from the Railway Shop at Havenstreet station and selected newsagents across the Island.

The magazine is produced by a team of dedicated Isle of Wight Steam Railway volunteers who diligently collect news stories and items of interest from across all areas and departments of the steam railway. In addition, other Island transport is frequently reported on, this includes Island Line, the cross Solent ferry operators, the Bus Museum.
Below are examples of the island Rail News that was the winner of the 2014 Heritage Railway Association "Best Magazine Award".  To receive a quarterly copy as soon as it is produced, we strongly encourage enrolment to membership of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway by clicking on this LINK
