All Stations to Ventnor West Dvd
This film tells the story of the little Island branch line that served Ventnor for only 52 years.
The high expectations of traffic on the route never materialized throughout its life, opened in 1900 and closed in 1952.
This interesting piece of railway history is told by railway historian Roger Silsbury from the signal box at Havenstreet.
With vintage film and a good helping of stills from the archives, takes us on the journey from Cowes to Newport and Merstone to Ventnor West.

A special run at Havenstreet: Reconstructs the original Ventnor West branch push pull train, now fully restored.
Both films produced and directed by Bob Ennis with John Huntley and Roger Silsbury.
Approx. 41 minutes.
