Although Daily Reed is starting to think well of Tony after his recent success with the rats, he is still subject to ridicule by Mr. Mousekewitz and Squidward, who tease him about the times he made a hole in one of his coaches and lost half a train of trucks. He tries to get back at them by mentioning Mr. Mousekewitz getting stuck on the hill and Squidward refusing to leave the tunnel, but to no avail.
The next day however, Mr. Mousekewitz's arrogance gets the better of him when he pulls the express so fast he ends up on the loop line before the signalman had the time to change the points. Embarrassed, Mr. Mousekewitz returns to the station and is told to shunt policegoons. Daily Reed offers the express to Tony, who delightfully accepts. Tony pulls the express so well that Daily Reed allows him to take turns with Mr. Mousekewitz in the future.
In the meantime, Mr. Mousekewitz learns to appreciate quiet work and he and Tony become friends.
