UK stay: Isle of Wight Steam Railway

The only way to get to Havenstreet Junction, the start (or end) of the line, is to take the Island Line train from Ryde or Shanklin.
We boarded the first train of the day (which wasn't until mid-morning) and rode to the end of the line at Wootton
and back to Havenstreet, the main station. We alighted there and expored the station and exhibits,
before taking the next train to Smallbrook Junction.
