Norman Curtis, who has fallen in love with life at the Shady Rest, is still staying there for free without Kate yet knowing his true identity. He is even helping Kate and the girls set-up for the Jamboree Hoedown which will be held at the hotel. Both Norman's reputation with Kate and the Jamboree are threatened when Norman, who was given the reigns to operate the train by Charley and Floyd, ends up breaking the throttle. The train can't run without it. A replacement part for a train this old is difficult enough to find, let alone by a supposed company who doesn't care about its operation. Norman decides to come clean about his identity. The problem is no one believes him. In fact, they all believe he's crazy. While everyone else does whatever they can to fix the throttle in time for the Jamboree, Norman, on his own, has to make contact with the outside world to prove that he says who he is by getting the train's throttle fixed the proper way. He is able to make contact with his team ... Written by Huggo
