The Isle of Wight Steam Railway offers a unique and exciting journey back in time to an era when everyone travelled by steam train. It will charm, engage and captivate everyone, leaving you with some lasting memories of a special day out.  You step back into a bygone era when steam power was the order of the day. Thrill to the sight and sound of powerful majestic steam engines and breathe in the evocative smells of a real steam railway. Soak-up the rhythm of quiet rural stations, settle back in beautifully restored Victorian and Edwardian carriages and discover an idyllic view of the Island’s unspoilt countryside. The Locomotives and Carriages have all been painstakingly restored to pristine condition and are the hallmark of the delightful railway. Their oldest locomotive was built in 1876 and carriages date back to 1864. Explore their Train Story Discovery Centre, which brings to life those swaggering locomotives, cheerful carriages and quirky wagons.
