Wally and Beaver have spent four days visiting Aunt Martha in Riverside. Aunt Martha calls Ward and June from the train station telling them which train she is putting them on. Wanting to appear grown up, the boys plead with Aunt Martha to let them buy their own train tickets and to board the train themselves without her. Aunt Martha obliges their request. But after Aunt Martha leaves the train station, the boys learn the train is delayed by 45 minutes, which gives them plenty of time in the station to spend some of their money, leaving them short when it comes time to buy their train tickets. Not trusting the pay phones to call Aunt Martha or their parents and thus potentially losing what little money they have left, the boys have to find a way to make it back to Mayfield without the help of Aunt Martha or their parents.
