Travelling The Island Line (or the vaguely interesting tale of a company that seems to have absolutely no interest in corporate branding)

We were staying in Shanklin which is the final stop of the Isle of Wight's eight mile train system - running from the pier end at Shanklin, mere moments after you get off the catamaran - which meant we got to enjoy travelling the entire route of Wight's trains. The trains are operated by Island Line, the smallest railway franchise in the UK, which is owned by Stagecoach.
