David Shepherd CBE

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of David Shepherd, a patron of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. 

In the mid-60s David was a key figure in the formation of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, securing - for preservation - the Island's (and the world's) last remaining O2 locomotive, No.24 'Calbourne'. 

David was last at the Railway on 8th October 2010 for the return to service of ‘Calbourne’. He will be sadly missed.
