JOINING THE RAILWAY AND MEMBERSHIP
The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is a registered educational charity and is supported by well over 1,000 members. If you would like to keep up with news and developments, support our work or even get involved with the operation of the railway, then please join us!
Restoring locomotives and carriages, and keeping the trains running is very costly, so new members to support our Railway are always welcome! While the many visitors who travel with us each year generate much of our income, we welcome members' subscriptions to provide additional funding. Membership of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is therefore a very positive way of providing ‘armchair’ support.
As a member you will receive four copies per annum of our award winning full colour magazine, Island Rail News, and full members receive three free tickets to travel on the Railway during the year.
(Please note: these tickets are not valid on Santa Specials). An associate member accompanying a full member who is travelling on a free ticket may also travel without charge. Dependent children within 'family membership' may only travel free of charge when accompanied by a family adult member. Free tickets may only be used by the person to whom they are issued and are not transferable to any other person.
