The Muppet Theater is being fumigated, so the entire show moves to a railroad station -- and is periodically interrupted by passing trains. Luckily, Loretta cheerfully tells Kermit that "country singers can sing anywhere."

Gonzo sets up a backstage office for Kermit on the caboose of a train, which takes off for Pittsburgh. While the show continues, Kermit and Gonzo try to ride a handcart back -- but they run into a train heading in the other direction.
