Island Heritage Train Days
Our popular Heritage Days return for 2022. Running usually on the second Sunday of the month between April and October, these feature one of our historic Isle of Wight locomotives, hauling a selection of different trains.
Discover how the Island railways provided our daily transport. See how steam-powered train travel shaped lives from taking people to work, school or shopping, to taking livestock and farm produce to market. Goods - including coal, which was the Island’s largest import - were distributed around the Island, after arriving from one of the Island’s ports.
Explore Train Story Discovery Centre during your visit and delve into the history of our Victorian and Edwardian railway vehicles, and the lasting impact on all our lives.
Our May event features W24 Calbourne hauling our passenger trains, plus W11 Newport pulling our Victorian 4-wheeled carriages in the morning, then our heritage Southern Railway goods train in the afternoon.
Standard tickets include one complete journey to both ends of the line. Book online to reserve a compartment for you and your family. First-class tickets are also available.
