Outside Euston station Mr Monkey examined a statue of Robert Stephenson. This was cast in bronze by Baron Carlo Marochetti in 1871* and used to be inside the station. It got moved outside when the station was modernised in the 1960s by demolishing it. Then Mr Monkey caught his train home to Stockport.

* According to English Heritage, anyway; everyone else seems to think he died in 1868. Or 1867.
