Mr Monkey went to have a closer look at the pier. He couldn't help noticing that half of it wasn't there, and that the other half had an Underground train rolling along it. He knew that the train was going to the station at the pierhead, and that he needed to catch it when it came back to the Ryde Esplenade station. A few minutes later Mr Monkey caught the train to Smallbrook Junction.
You can read about the railway at the Island Line Trains website.
