Branch Lines

Branch Lines to Newport

from Ryde, Sandown, Ventnor West, Freshwater and Cowes

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

Newport was the Clapham Junction of the island railways for generations. Its bustle is contrasted with the many peaceful country stations, such as remote Merstone, junction for the spectacularly beautiful Ventnor West branch. Memories of the steam era will be aroused in older readers, whilst an important chapter in social history will be revealed to the young.
