483006 at Shanklin.2 viewsThe end of the line at Shanklin on June 28th 2014. Having arrived with the 14.07 from Ryde Pier Head, 483006 awaits departure with the return working, due to depart at 14.38. The units now stop well short of the stop block here. The route beyond Shanklin, closed in folly in April 1966 is now unlikely to reopen. Whilst the bridge across Languard Road (beyond the stop block) would be easy to replace, the trackbed is now incorporated into an access road for a holiday park complex.
