Episode Summary

EDIT
Mary, Laura, and Mr. Edwards' adopted son Carl long to get a first-hand look at the kinds of trains they learn about in school, but accompanying their fathers on an upcoming business trip would mean missing school for a day. The kids eventually con their parents into letting them go, and when everything is finally settled, the five of them head off on their way. While messing around on a caboose at the train station, the children are in for the ride of their lives when it detaches from the rest of the train and runs loose. With the caboose going increasingly faster, and another train coming full-speed in the opposite direction, it's up to Charles and Mr. Edwards to save their children.moreless
