Mister Rogers arrives with a train set which he takes to the kitchen and sets up on the table. After playing with the train for a few moments, Mister Rogers sits and the piano and plays "train music" for viewers to listen to as they pretend to be trains.

Mime Walker stops by and demonstrates some train motions while Mister Rogers continues to play the piano. Returning to the kitchen, Mister Rogers shows the train set to Mime Walker. Mime Walker then shows some different emotions through various facial expressions.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mime Walker has ridden a train and arrived just as Daniel is dusting the numbers on his clock. Mime Walker "talks" with Daniel and X the Owl about his train ride and learns that there is a "royal secret." Lady Elaine believes that the secret is that the royal family is planning to build a zoo. At the castle, Mime Walker seeks the truth and is told the secret by King Friday.

Back at the house, Mime Walker talks about how he gets many ideas from children. After he leaves, Mister Rogers sings Children Can.


As Mister Rogers and Mime Walker play with the train set in the kitchen, a studio camera comes into view on the left side of the screen.
