Mister Rogers arrives with two boxes which he opens in the kitchen to show two model railroad crossings from a train set. Using toy cars, he explains why the gate at the crossing goes up and down. The models were borrowed from Mister Rogers' son in order to share with Bob Trow who has a train set assembled at his workshop. Before leaving for Trow's Workshop, Mister Rogers sings Let's Be Together Today.

At Trow's Workshop, Mr. Trow adds one of the railroad crossings to his impressive train set. He and Mister Rogers look at the various pieces assembled including one building with a sign that says "Rogers' General Store."

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Donkey Hodie returns to Someplace Else with an empty potato train having sold all of his stock. Lady Aberlin arrives in search of a package from the Owl Correspondence School which they find in the potato train. A note inside the package askes Harriett Elizabeth Cow to teach X the Owl about safety.

Behind the tree, Lady Aberlin and Harriett Elizabeth Cow use a picture card of a stop sign to begin X's safety lesson. Using the card, they practice what to do when a stop sign is seen.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a portion of What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel before showing a film about children riding tricylcles and playing with a stop/go sign. After the film, Mister Rogers talks about other ways to say stop as well as reasons that grown-ups might tell a child to stop.


Details for this episode were taking from an incomplete recording missing the final few moments of the visit with Bob Trow as well as a bit at the end of X's safety lesson.
