2011 'to be special year for Isle of Wight Steam Railway'

Next year promises to be a special year for the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, according to its chairman.

The popular tourist destination will be celebrating its 40th anniversary and Steve Oates stated that there is a lot in the pipeline to mark the milestone.

He said: "There will be a great deal going on and our aim is ensure there will be something for everyone to enjoy during the year."

Mr Oates added that the Isle of Wight Steam Railway will be looking to pay tribute to the individuals who helped to keep it alive 40 years ago.

One of the main events will be in January, to commemorate when the railway was first established at Havenstreet Station and another in April, when the first trains set off down the lines.

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway will be holding a series of Santa Specials throughout December, which could be an ideal trip for visitors to the island before Christmas.
