The Isle of Wight  to be more precise. Starting off at Ryde Esplanade we went on the little tube to Shanklin and back

Next stop was Ryde St.Johns. This is the depot which services the stock for the line and throwback from the days of steam.

Smallbrook Jct was the next stop, alas no longer a junction but you can jump on a steam train to Wotton.


Brading was reached , with its signal box set back from the station


Sandown & Lake past in a flash and finally Shanklin
