When the train got to Wooton it ran out of track and had to stop. Mr Monkey jumped out and watched the engine - an Austerity 0-6-0 called Waggoner - being uncoupled and taken to the other end of the train for the journey back to Ryde. This involved letting a lot steam out of the braking system. Mr Monkey left the station and went to find Carol's brother's house, where he spent most of the afternoon.
