A fault with 1 of just 2 trains operating on the Island Line network means that there is now just 1 train running between Ryde Pier Head and Shanklin.
This reliance on a single train – which is over 80 years old – has seen the service suspended in its entirety at least twice this week. The whole operation hangs in the balance.
It has been advised that disruption is expected ‘until further notice’ with South Western Railway today (Saturday) saying that the disruption is now expected until the end of the day on 17th November – next Sunday.
Engineers are working to resume a normal service as soon as possible.
Trains will depart Shanklin at xx:18 past the hour and will depart Ryde Pier Head at xx:49.
For further information or onward travel advice please speak to a member of staff or use a station help point.
South Western Railway apologise for any disruption that this may cause to your journey.
