Mr Monkey arrived at a display of trains used by the crowned heads of Great Britain. First he had a look at a Stanier class 5MT 4-6-0 (apparently known as a Black 5), then he inspected carriages built for Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1903, and later modified for Queen Mary. A bathroom was added in 1915, and modified in 1941.
You can read about the Black 5 locomotive at the Wikipedia website.
