The Picnic was a train for holidaymakers who visited the Mid Sodor Railway. Normally taken by Duke, the train ran between Easter and Michaelmas. The train left Arlesburgh at ten o'clock, stopping at all of the stations on the line and many beauty spots along the way, until reaching Peel Godred. The return run left Peel Godred at three thirty and arrived back at Arlesburgh by ten after five in order to give passengers enough time for high-tea at five thirty. The "Picnic" is currently taken by Proteus.
