Other Regions - Isle of Wight Steam Railway

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway has preserved part of the original rail network between Wootton and Smallbrook Junction and operates steam services from its intermediate station base at Havenstreet where there is also a museum, workshops and various sources of information and exhibits. Since its inception in 1971 the Railway has imported many period artefacts and railway pieces and created an interesting Southern Railway time capsule.

Havenstreet Station

Havenstreet station is the Railway's headquarters and is the point of public access to the railway - particularly by car as the otter stops on the line are relatively inaccessible. Here we see the booking office and railway cottages.

Originally Haven Street station - as identified on the station building name board - the station stood at roughly the halfway point between Ryde and Cowes.
