Whitwell Station Bridge.2 viewsThis is the scene in Nettlecombe Lane, Whitwell, where the Ventnor West Branch crossed over the lane on a plate girder bridge. The two brick abutments now stand open to the sky, as the former Railway Hotel on the left looks on. This very scenic line closed in September 1952.

485043 at Ryde St Johns Road.0 viewsCar 5, built in 1931 leads set 485043 at Ryde St Johns Road on the 17th July 1989. The unit was working from Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin. Like the metamorphosis of a butterfly, the units which were originally red, then blue, blue & grey, suddenly became a blaze of colour in their twilight years, when Network South East Livery was applied to the fleet. Desite being nearly 60 years old the livery made the trains look quite modern.
