A rare opportunity to see Three Island Locomotives in operation including the newest addition to the fleet - 41298.

This year’s event is loosely themed on the “Merstone to Ventnor West Branch” and there will be an opportunity to see the push pull set running out on its own. As well as a rare opportunity to see as much of our rolling stock in operation as possible we will be offering trips around the sidings.

You will also have the opportunity to explore our Train Story Discovery Centre and learn the story of our Victorian and Edwardian railway vehicles and their lasting impact on all our lives!
A Real Ale Bar serving Island Beers will be available and our refreshment rooms will be serving an extensive range of hot and cold food.

This year’s Gala will feature a SPECIAL EXHIBITION CELEBRATING THE AGE OF STEAM ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT BY IVAN BERRYMAN

An Exhibition Celebrating the Age of Steam on the Isle of Wight will be held throughout the three days of the Steam Gala in the Education Room at Havenstreet.

This exhibition, by celebrated Island Artist Ivan Berryman, will showcase his unique collection of work portraying the Island's golden age of steam and is being held in support of the Railway's Ivatt Locomotive 41313 Appeal.

Come along and meet the Artist whose paintings and prints will be available to buy.
