For nearly 100 years tiny tank engines hauled crowds of holidaymakers across the timber trestle bridge to the Island. This album will bring back memories of happy holidays to some and timeless train watching to others. Every detail is recorded including the station lighting, the bulk oyster traffic, the pram vans, the toll bridge, double heading and the full story of the short lived Isle of Wight Train Ferry.
