Train is an episode of Series 3.
The Alphablocks are getting ready to take a holiday, but T has forgotten to arrange transport.
A railroad appears, and so does the time table reading the arrival of the train is 9:00. The train isn't coming until another two hours, 12 minutes, and 22 seconds. They cannot wait that long.
It starts to rain and the Alphablocks are still standing.
A train appears. W wants to come along for the ride.
The train comes to a stop. T lets N take his seat as CH comes by. They sit on the front seat, but only the front of the train goes, leaving the passenger cars behind. L tells them to come back and reminds them that something is missing.
F flies in and takes the front seat while CH goes in the passenger car.
The engine has failed! The trip is about to be ended in tragedy, but S comes in to help.
The Alphablocks hop aboard a sail boat. They can finally travel, and the episode ends with N asking "Are we nearly there yet?"
