While questions remain about when the fleet will able to carry passengers, the new carriage was transported to the Island on the back of a lorry earlier today (Tuesday).  

More testing, certification and training is needed, operator South Western Railway said in a tweet.

Franchisee SWR called it a "a positive step towards re-opening Island Line as soon as possible."

The line between Ryde and Shanklin closed in January and was supposed to reopen in the spring.

However, the multi-million pounds refurbishment, which includes new trains and a new passing loop for more frequent services, has been dogged by delays, including Brexit, Covid-19, software incompatibility problems and more recently, flood damage to tracks and ballast at Ryde.
