Part 3


July 28, 1996
Written by Noel Robinson
Directed by Robert Marchand

The annual beach picnic is approaching and Mum is knitting new bathing costumes for all the children. Bruno complains that he can't possibly wear his because everyone will laugh at him. His father hears his complaints and becomes angry. He tells Bruno that he must stay at home and do the chores instead of going to the picnic.

While Jack Ryan's brand new wheat harvester stands proudly on a flat topped railway truck, the Gunthers and the rest of the town prepare to catch the train, leaving Bruno behind. However when Bruno returns early to meet the train, he sees that the harvester has disappeared. Discovering it further down the track in the path of the train, Bruno finds himself at the centre of a perilous drama. He must stop the train to save his family and friends.
