WINNER ANNOUNCED: Treat Your Family To A Day With The Railway Folk
Congratulations to our winner, Marcia Harman! We found Marcia's experience about meeting Chris Evans and Billie Piper in Portugal brilliant, especially as she then accidentally managed to hit Chris with a door!
Enjoy a lovely day out with the family this summer with the Isle Of Wight Steam Railway!
We've teamed up with the railway to offer a family pass for four (two adults, two children) to enjoy a day with the Railway Folk on June 12 and 13.
About the event:
