Ryde O2 NºW22 Brading awaiting departure from Ryde Esplanade for Pierhead. For some reason there are two up trains in the platforms at the same time.

NºW22 has been joined by NºW27 Merstone. The reason for this is not known but it could be, as both trains were due to connect with the same ferry, if the former were running late that the latter was let into the station on the down line to minimize the delay.

Ryde NºW22 has now left, leaving NºW27 as the sole occupier of the station.

Finally it is NºW27's turn to depart for Pierhead and the waiting ferry.

Well, that's one explanation, if anyone knows for certain what the true course of events was, we'd be pleased to learn about it!
