When Mr Monkey got to Smallbrook Junction he jumped off the Island Line train, went through a gate, and found that the Isle of Wight Steam Railway had a steam train waiting for him. Looking around his compartment he found a map showing the routes that used to exist on the IOW, and a picture suggesting he should visit Bramhall Hall*. He was soon listening to the sound of the engine as it took him through the countryside.
* which is just down the road from his house, and nowhere near the Isle of Wight.
You can read about the railway at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway website.
