At Smallbrook Junction, the steam railway connects with the Island Line.

Services are operated on most days from June to September, together with Sundays in April, May, and October and public holidays. The railway is popular with tourists, attracting people to its original steam locomotive and railway cafe.
The railway has several steam locomotives and a small series of diesel shunters, four of which have had notable careers on the island.
Apart from the standard definitives with the Queen, here is one very lovely stamp, issued in 2007 in a set of 6 Grand Prix stamps, with this one featuring Stirling Moss, 1957 Vanwall 2.5L.
As for the Queen Elizabeth definitives, they come from this year's mini sheet of 12 stamps.
