A week or so before his day out Mr Monkey received a letter from the Railway Touring Company, the organisers of his trip. Inside he found an itinerary of the day and a pair of brightly coloured tickets for his humans. Later Mr Monkey compared the itinerary to the correct pages in Jowett's Railway Atlas (borrowed from Mr Rik's dad) to work out what route his journey would take.
You can read about the organisers at the Railway Touring Company website and see the train's itinerary at the UKsteam Info website.
