Spare cars, 483010 at Ryde.1 viewsThe tenth class 483 set sent to the Isle of Wight in 1992, was spare set 483010. These two cars were body shells not fitted out, with their windows plated over. They were the strategic reserve, should any of the operational cars become damaged or should traffic levels increase to the extent that an additional unit may have been required. In 1998, along with four operational cars, 483010 was also set aside for disposal, and is seen here at the rear of the car park at Ryde St Johns Road in July 1999.

This location took some finding, it is only in sunlight for a few hours a day due to the depth of the cutting, surrounding buildings and unchecked lineside undergrowth.

485044 at Brading.0 viewsIn the hot summer sunshine, 485044 with Driving Car number 7 leading, pauses at Brading on July 16th 1989 whilst working a lunchtime Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin service. The site of the then recently lifted Down Line can clearly be seen. The banner on the footbridge reads - 'The New Island Line Trains are Here'. The first of the refurbished 1938 stock units, 483001 had crossed the Solent from Eastleigh Works earlier in July, and 1989 was to be the last year when the Class 485 & 486 vintage units held sway.
