Train is the fourteenth Season 3 episode of Alphablocks.


When the Alphablocks go on holiday, a trip on a train is the only way to travel - if only the train would travel somewhere!


The Alphablocks are getting ready to take a holiday, but T has forgotten to arrange transport.

r-ai-l, RAIL!

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.

r-ai-n, RAIN!

It starts to rain and the Alphablocks are still standing.

t-r-ai-n, TRAIN!

A train appears. W wants to come along for the ride.

w-ai-t, WAIT!

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.

ch-ai-n, CHAIN!

F flies in and takes the front seat while CH goes in the passenger car.

f-ai-l, FAIL!

The engine has failed! The trip is about to be ended in tragedy, but S comes in to help.

s-ai-l, SAIL!

The Alphablocks hop aboard a sail boat. They can finally travel, and the episode ends with N asking "Are we nearly there yet?"
