Guest trains announced for Isle of Wight Steam Railway

Tourists heading out on their Isle of Wight holidays this spring are in for a special treat if they attend an anniversary celebration taking place on the island.

This year, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is marking its 40th birthday and it has been revealed that in order to mark the occasion, a pair of locomotives are to be transported to the popular attraction.

Engines from the Bluebell Railway in Sussex and the Bodmin & Wenford Railway in Cornwall are to travel across the Solent to join in the fun at the anniversary celebrations at the end of May 2011.

Both of the visiting locomotives were built during the reign of Queen Victoria and will be transporting tourists on Isle of Wight holidays along with Calbourne and Freshwater.

A range of events are being held in order to mark the 40th birthday of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, including for Mothering Sunday in April.
