TV & Film Services

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway offers a range of locations, historic rolling stock, and other opportunities for TV and Film

Our railway has provided the setting for numerous TV and Film productions over the years. Our delightful Victorian and Edwardian carriages, (dating back to 1864) have been beautifully restored to pristine condition, and all have genuine original fittings. When used in conjunction with one of our Victorian locomotives, the oldest of which was built in 1876, the perfect period atmosphere of a bygone age in a rural location can be recreated.

The railway has featured in a variety of productions including:

GREAT RAILWAY JOURNEYS – BBC2 programme with Michael Portillo
