Episode 125: The Race

Four trains-an old one, a red one, a big one and a little one named Miss Train (Señorita Tren)-decide to have a race. Miss Train, clearly an underdog, is the slowest train out of the starting gate. Soon after the race begins, the old train stops to eat cake with The Three Bears (Los tres osos) in the forest and becomes ill from all he has consumed. Then the red train purchases a book from The Three Goats (Los tres chivos) and wrecks while trying to read and race at the same time. Finally, the big train pulls over to rest, but accidentally falls asleep. Miss Train, slow but steady, wins the race.
