The Isle of Wight Steam Railway has recently opened Train Story, a new museum exhibition based around a new storage facility for trains with an associated exhibition space. The new buildings are slightly apart from Havenstreet Station, the hub of the IOWSR, and the new displays will, therefore, have a distinct identity and purpose.

“Our vision … is to provide a more engaging, accessible and fulfilling environment for our visitors, staff and volunteers to explore the significance of our collection and the part the railways played in people’s lives on the island”.

Our proposals include a new brand identity, a highly interactive new exhibition based on the history of the railway and flexible displays that can be moved easily within the new sheds to accommodate changing locomotives, carriages and trucks.
