Lake railway station is a station on the Isle of Wight serving the village of Lake, situated in a quiet residential area not far from Lake Cliff Gardens and the beach at Sandown Bay. Until the construction of an interchange station with the Isle of Wight Steam Railway at Smallbrook Junction in 1991, this station was the newest on the island having opened by British Rail in 1987. The Station is formed of a single wooden platform with a shelter. The station is served by South Western Railway under their Island Line branding using Class 484 units formed from refurbished Ex London Underground D78 Stock. This follows the retirement of the Class 483 units which were formed from former London Underground 1938 Tube Stock.
