The Future of Island Line

As a stakeholder in Island Line, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway will submit to South Western Railway a detailed response to their ongoing consultation process. Our focus will be on essential short term solutions that will see the Island Line service updated, improve and become more sustainable. 

We will be suggesting a number of initiatives where it may be possible to share use our facilities and resources here on the Island. The Steam Railway have always made it clear that we do not have the resource or desire to take any level of responsibility for Island Line. Our focus must remain on continuing the successful operation of the Steam Railway.   

We do however see an immediate opportunity to extend our line into Ryde St. John’s Road, alongside Island Line. Many benefits have been identified for the Island Line, Island tourism, the local community and the Isle of Wight Steam Railway.

If the opportunity arose it is in our long term vision that we would also like to see our line extended into Newport. However we are very mindful of the costs, technical and regulatory challenges. For this reason our present focus is firmly on our Ryde St John’s Road ambition.
