Storyline

Charley and Floyd derail the Cannonball going around Deadman's Curve. They believe the reason for the derailment was that Floyd had removed too many of the railroad ties to stoke the engine. Floyd counters that he only took those that were deteriorating because of the worm holes. To get the Cannonball repaired and back into service, Uncle Joe takes matters into his own hands by calling the C&FW Railroad, who agree to pay the necessary $300 insurance deductible for the repairs. Kate doesn't think that what Uncle Joe did was such a good idea since it will probably mean the imminent arrival of Homer Bedloe. Kate's right. But Bedloe initially seems to want to cooperate. His true mission comes to light when he finds about what Floyd did, meaning that a railroad employee's negligence caused the accident which in turns means the insurance company will not pay which means he will not be repairing the train. Kate, however, comes up with an alternate plan in discussion with the insurance ... Written by Huggo
