  • Children poking around where they shouldn't be, leads to all kinds of trouble.

    Miss Beadle has been teaching the children about trains in school. When their fathers are going away on a business trip for a day, the children beg to go with him in order to assist in their education. So, Charles and Mr. Edwards find that they have some young company travelling along with them.

    While at the train station, like most young children, they get more than a little curious and start poking around a caboose. Unfortunately for them, it unhooks itself from the main carriages and sends them on a fast and furious train ride, while their parents and railroad officials try to save them.

    This one was very dull, and not up to the usual standard of the show at all, in my opinion.
