Plot Summary

It's finally finished! The Rookery Mountain tunnel will connect Cube Town to the neighbouring metropolis of Cube City and there's a festival to celebrate the opening. Hillary and Gazelle can't wait for their sleepy seaside town to catch up to the rest of the world but the other citizens aren't so sure about a new way of life. Pecola, Rudy, Little Chu and Coco decide to go and help Steamer polish up Cactus for its first big trip. In their efforts they manage to flip the switch on the console, sending the train off for a wild ride through Cube Town. By the time they finally figure out how to stop the train, it's in need of major repairs. Looks like life will continue to be the same in Cube Town, at least for a little while.
