Titre original : Steam Whistle Towards New Frontiers
While Candy anxiously awaits the letter from Merry Jane Nursing School, Jimmy organizes a competition to determine who will become the second in command after Candy, now that he is to live with Mr. Cartwright as his adoptive son. The best tree climber of the other orphans is John. When Matthew the mailman delivers positive news from the nursing school, John instructs the orphans that even if they might not like it when Candy leaves, they ought to be happy for her. Candy decides not to postpone her leaving. This time, however, she will have to leave Klint behind, who makes several attempts to stop her from leaving. Jimmy gives the other orphans a ride to accompany Candy to the train station where they say their goodbyes and promises to take care of Klint for Candy. The raccoon breaks loose and races after the rapidly accelerating train in a desperate but unsuccessful bid to catch up with her.
