Vivarail 484类的图片's For Island Line

的first photos of the brand 新 Island Line trains, which are currently being built by Vivarail in the Midlands, have now been released.

2019年9月,西南铁路宣布£对Island Line的26m投资将使Vivarail取代483级’■484级火车,以及基础设施的改善,使火车每隔30分钟一班。




的Class 484 trains will operate between Ryde Pier Head and Shanklin and will replace the 前1938年的地下存货。

西南铁路公司在今年晚些时候抵达怀特岛的首列火车之前分享了建造过程的照片–待确认的日期。


的‘new’ trains are technically, 42-years-old. 的1978 former London District Line stock has been completely overhauled by Vivarail and run on bogies from the 2000s. This is a stark contrast to the current trains being used on the Isle of Wight which are older than some of the trains running on heritage steam railways.




的new trains will provide more capacity, better accessibility, USB charging, passenger information systems and onboard wifi. 的 y will also allow the guard to easily pass between carriages to collect fares. As photographed above, the 新 trains have been fitted with a snow plough to clear debris from the tracks.

五套 已订购2列火车,每列火车最多可容纳188人–共有106人站着,86人就座。在高峰时段,一列火车总共可以运行4辆车,可容纳约376人。

Previously, it was said that the 新 trains would be running to a 新 Island Line timetable from 可能 2021 onwards, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, this is likely to be pushed back.




South Western Railway has confirmed that for almost 3 months no trains will operate between Ryde Pier Head and Shanklin whilst work is undertaken to transform the line, including the introduction of a 新 passing loop at Brading allowing for a regular 30-minute service. 

Track enhancements will improve the quality of the ride, platforms will be upgraded to improve access to the Class 484 trains, and 新 ticket vending machines will be installed at Shanklin, Sandown and Ryde St John’s Road.


铁路替换巴士将投入运营,而小型巴士将在莱德码头(Ryde Pier)上下运行–这在潮湿的月份尤其重要。
