Still on the Isle of Wight…
They are also running 1938 London Underground trains on the IOW Island Line service.

I don't know about these days but the Isle of Wight (tube Trains) used to be very brightly painted. I have been on one along Ryde Pier, half a mile out to the end where the Foot ferries come in.

They had some painted with dinosaurs a while ago, now it seems they are all painted in LU red, just as they were in 1938.

To be fair the Dinosaur trains looked like they were covered in Grafitti from a distance.

This is a good program on BBC iPlayer.

It starts with some interviews and a history lesson and turns into a long procession of various steam engines and old carriages, all travelling down a long straight, with an excellent commentary.

I've been looking at that website, there are so many photo's it kept me entertained for hours.
There is a lot of joinery involved in an old carriage.

Not models but a collection of the real beasts that the models are supposed to be based on.
