Ghost train at Wroxall?
We were walking along the old railway line between Wroxall and Shanklin and we heard the toot toot of a train whistle ahead of us. No trains have run along this line for over forty years.
(Wroxall station, opened when the Isle of Wight Railway extended from Shanklin to Ventnor in 1866, had two platforms, a passing loop and a 280 ft siding. The station closed in 1966 when the line to Ventnor was cut back to Shanklin.)
