Steam railway publishes 2014 calendar

Those looking to enjoy a traditional ride on the Isle of Wight's famous steam railway will not have to wait long as the 2014 season gets off to the blinding start this March on St Patrick's Day.

The company has recently announced its calendar for the year, with the first date offering a nod to the Irish on March 16th.

If you're hoping to celebrate the holiday on a different island to the usual one, expect live music from the band Last Orders and Irish dancing from the Shamrock and Thistles dance group aboard the steam railway.

Refresh yourselves with some Guinness from the beverage cart - the drink is being made specially available for this day only so that you can raise a toast to St Patrick - and there will be plenty of other edible Irish treats in store for those anxious for a taste of home.

Tickets can be purchased at the gate at the price of £12 per adult and £6 per child, with a discount applicable to those who book online. Kids under the age of four travel free, and the railway is offering its immensely popular family ticket for two adults and two children for just £30.

If it looks like you might have to miss out on the St Patrick's Day train journey, there is no need to worry as the immensely popular attraction will be running again on Mother's Day to ensure mums aren't left out.

As part of the event on March 30th and 31st, all mothers will receive a special gift of spring flowers to make them feel really special and a superb lunch will be served in the Refreshment Rooms.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801684578-ADNFCR
