30/7/17 - 1/8/17 : Isle of Wight Steam Railway
Having previously sharpened their skills with the farmyard the Railway Folk are far from daunted when a travelling Circus rolls up at Havenstreet and decide to stay for a few days. Whilst Dusty the Station Master tries to take control Max the Guard gets tangled in the Big Top, Nipper is digging out his stilts and Derek sees himself as Ringmaster. Mr Beeching, of course, is already counting the cost and wishing he could perform a vanishing trick!
