New trains and improvements on Island Line

Island Line (Ryde to Shanklin) is a fun, car free way of exploring for our Isle of Wight holiday cottage guests. So we were delighted yesterday whilst catching a train from Brading station to witness the Minister of State for Transport announcing £26 million investment to fund new trains and a passing loop at Brading to improve connectivity with cross-Solent sailings. The new trains are refurbished London Underground stock providing more capacity, accessibility, passenger information and WiFi.
