As he travelled towards Matlock Riverside Mr Monkey passed several sidings packed with rolling stock, including several carriages, a crane, and BR Class 44 No. D8 Penyghent. This is one of only 10 Class 44 diesels built. Mr Monkey stayed on at Matlock, and was soon looking backwards as the train passed through Darly Dale for the last time. At Rowsley South he jumped off the train - the last of the day - and had Mr Rik drive him home.
