St Lawrence Station Overbridge.1 viewsAdjacent to the station building at St Lawrence, is the road overbridge that carries St Lawrence Shute, (a very narrow step lane), over the former line. To the left in this scene is the station, and to the right the former trackbed is covered with trees before disappearing under a housing development. The Southern Railway downgraded the station to an unstaffed halt in 1927. Closure came with the rest of the branch in 1952.
Spare Car Number S10 at Brading. 0 viewsIn 1966, the stock was formed into 3-Car and 4-Car sets, additionally a spare driving motor car was sent to the Island. S10 was not allocated to any set, and was used as required to cover failures or routine maintenance. The car was fitted with a stencil type number display that could be altered to whatever set it was part of. Here in July 1978, S10 is running with set 035, as it crosses Barnes Footpath Crossing on the south side of Brading Station as it runs in with a service from Shanklin.
483004 at Smallbrook Junction.0 views483004 calls at Smallbrook Junction bringing up the rear of a Shanklin to Ryde Pier Head Service in July 1993. Opened in 1991, when the Steam Railway was extended from Haven Street, the station is an interchange between the two railways, and the Island Line Electrics only call when the Steam Railway is operating. Completely surrounded by countryside with no other access except by train, the site was originally just a junction where the line to Newport & Cowes diverged away from the Ventnor Line.

The building to the left is part of the original Isle of Wight Railway engine shed dating from 1864 when the line opened to Shanklin. The former LT identity of 126 was 10297. 483006 was delivered to the Island following refurbishment at Eastleigh Works, on June 20th 1990.
483007 (227) at Sandown.0 views483007 pauses in the evening light at Sandown on July 10th 2014 with the 18.49 Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin. A refreshment room/cafe is now open once again in the station building, bringing some activity to the place between trains. A far cry though from the Summer Saturdays in the 1950s and 1960s when queues would form outside the station both here and at Shanklin, such was the volume of passengers returning home following the end of their holidays.
