New Island train arrives via ferry!

An unusual sight yesterday – a train on a lorry on a ferry! The first of the refurbished tube trains arrived at Fishbourne yesterday as part of a multi-million pound investment in Island Line. Whilst the trains are 42 years old (!) they have been fully refurbished and have free WiFi, power sockets and wheelchair spaces. The fleet will come into service in 2021 after improvement works on the line to improve the quality of the ride and adjustments to platform heights to improve accessibility.
