THREE PIERS

Model Rail (UK) - - Masterplan Dramatic Lines - ALL: HOLLY NORRIS

There are three piers at Ryde: the foot/road pier of 1814, the derelict tramway pier of 1864 and the half-mile rail­way pier, which opened in 1880. The lat­ter was jointly funded by the Lon­don Brighton & South Coast and Lon­don & South Western rail­ways. The rail­way from Ryde Es­planade south was the prop­erty of the Isle of Wight Rail­way, which also worked trains on the ‘joint’ pier.
