Episode 1 - Channel 5, 3 May, 8:00 pm

In this episode, John, Peter, and Piglet explore the Lake District, known for its stunning beauty. They start by firing up a narrow-gauge steam train at Ravenglass, aiming for Scafell Peak. Piglet manages the front, while John and Peter relax and enjoy the scenery.

Transitioning to a bumpy Foden steam van, they traverse rugged terrain, reaching the Swinside Stone Circle at dusk. The next day, they visit Alex Sharphouse's eccentric steam machine collection, riding the impressive Talisman through the lakes.

Boarding 'Amazon,' a boat from "Swallows and Amazons," John, surprisingly the Arthur Ransome Society president, takes the helm. The journey concludes with tea aboard Shamrock, a 1906 steam launch on Lake Windermere.
