Admire the workmanship, enjoy the memories and expect to be surprised!

Featuring an array of railway and road vehicles of all shapes and sizes, if you love cars and heritage transport this event is for you!

Every vehicle on display is someone’s pride and joy … And this is also your chance to contribute to the Show!

Whether your car, bicycle, road engine, truck, wagon or old charabanc is a rare vintage marque, a smartly polished classic, or just an old banger, if it’s your ‘pride and joy’ come and display it at Havenstreet Station for the day!

Plus there will be a full two-train service of steam trains reminiscent of Island transport in days gone by, and there’s a chance to explore our Train Story Discovery Centre and learn the story of our Victorian and Edwardian railway vehicles, and their lasting impact on all our lives!
