Summary

This holiday-themed episode visits the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, as an enchanting wooden carriage from the very dawn of the railway age - 1864 - is restored. In its heyday, the carriage transported Victorian holidaymakers to the posh seaside resorts on the Isle of Wight, but it was scrapped in 1920 and converted into a holiday chalet. The team prepare to convert it back into a carriage featuring two second-class compartments and a first-class salon, with rich blue velvet hand-made upholstery and carefully crafted period features.
