Kate spends an inordinate amount of time trying to get hold of some Forest Sauvignon grapes, only to give them to some birds. She then repairs the bandstand by the simple expedient of turning it on and finally gets a barge to tow the train to a winding station. Only to have Professor Pons call her to come to a lecture. Another stop on the road to Syberia.
Kate catches the clockwork train to Syberia, only to have it run down in the run-down university town of Barrockstadt. Oscar is no help so Kate has to deal with the problem on her own and we find out that Kate has the world’s worst expense account, thinks nothing of stealing books from libraries and has an unhealthy fascination with grapes. And there is something to do with Hans Voralberg. Another stop on the journey to Syberia!
