Class 33 to make is­land de­but

Rail (UK) - - News -

A Class 33 is to make a de­but for the class on the Isle of Wight when 33202 stars at the IoW Steam Rail­way diesel event on Septem­ber 29-Oc­to­ber 1.

The Type 3 will be taken to the IoW by ship and is only the fourth Bri­tish Rail diesel to visit the is­land. It re­turns to the main­land af­ter the event.

The ‘33’ is re­stricted to op­er­at­ing be­tween Small­brook Junc­tion and Haven­street as it is too long for a head­shunt at Wooton. It may work one train per day through to Wooton, but not the re­turn.
