Episode 2 - Channel 5, 10 May, 8:00 pm

In this episode, John, Peter, and Piglet explore the Isle of Wight, off Southampton's southern coast. Boarding the Waverley, the last passenger steamship, they navigate the Solent, while John and Piglet admire the engines. On the island, they join Ralph's century-old Sentinel steam lorry to Carisbrooke Castle via the scenic Military Road.

Exploring the castle's history leads to a boule game, with John treating Piglet and Peter at the Crab Shack near Ventnor. The next day, they ride the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, with Peter trying carriage restoration before boarding the 135-year-old steam engine, Calbourne. Toward Bembridge, John and Peter hitch a ride on Dragon Fly, a converted steam roller turned Showman's Wagon, but with only room for two.

A bumpy caravan ride to Bembridge leads to a spectacular view of the illuminated Showman's Wagon by the harbour, marking the end of their journey across the enchanting island.
