Scampering into Paddington Station, Mr Monkey passed a statue of Isambard Kingdom Brunel (who built the station) and his big top hat. Soon he was on a platform, boarding his First Great Western train to Swindon. This First Great Western is a different Great Western to Brunel's Great Western, which was the actual first Great Western. Today's First Great Western is really the second Great Western.
