Betty Jo and Steve's baby is due anytime now. This baby has become a true community project, with the Douglases the last to know and to get involved. Steve thinks that it a good idea if they move back to the Shady Rest until the baby comes. Wendell has been on an around the clock watch for the last week keeping the train engine stoked. This 24-hour a day watch is taking its toll on his body. Betty Jo is trying to hold off the baby's arrival as Billie Jo is out of town on a singing engagement, and is trying to make it back as soon as she can. But more importantly, Kate is out of town taking care of their ailing Aunt Ruth. When Betty Jo finally goes into labor, will Wendell be awake to get them to the hospital? And will both Billie Jo and Kate make it back in time? Written by
