Episode 3 - Channel 5, 17 May, 8:00 pm

In this episode, John, Peter, and Piglet explore the picturesque county of Dorset. Their journey kicks off by preparing the T3, a beautifully restored train for its maiden voyage, with John getting his hands dirty in the final preparations. As they embark, they reminisce about childhood holidays in Dorset while admiring the stunning countryside, passing Corfe Castle, a scene reminiscent of a fairytale.

Their sweet tooth leads them to a traditional sweetshop before hopping on Young Buster, a steam-powered Leyland Sherpa, for a drive to Kimmeridge Bay. The weather takes a turn with Storm Babet, prompting a ride on Puffing Billy, a bus ill-equipped for Dorset's hilly terrain, causing frustration for Peter during refuelling.

Despite Peter's reluctance, John insists on a walk along Chesil Beach, leading to an impressive view of Portland Bill Lighthouse against the rough sea. The following day, they ride a ninety-five-year-old cider wagon, stopping at the Abbotsbury Swannery, where Piglet learns about the birds' historical significance.

Their journey continues along the stunning coast and rolling hills of Dorset, culminating in their arrival at West Bay.
