Some backpackers are waiting for Peter Sam's train, but Peter Sam is late. The coaches call out that Peter Sam's shed is empty and it has been all night which causes the staff at the top station to get worried. Then, they hear a cheeky puffing sound coming from an overgrown siding and the coaches are glad that their Peter Sam has been found.
