W27 Merstone pulls away from Newport with a train for Cowes in 1962. Despite the closure some years earlier of the lines to Freshwater and Sandown, Newport retained the air of a busy junction station right up to its own closure in 1966. To the right of the photo another 02 tank can just be seen in the bay platform formerly used by services to Freshwater.

Just like a pair of twins! Two O2s on their respective trains, all ready to set forth across the island. The further loco has a route disc on the front buffer beam. It was often the practice on the Island to leave these in situ regardless of which end of the loco was "leading", unlike on the mainland.
