Chapter 12: Through the Gotthard Tunnel on a croco-locomotive (Ticino, Uri, Schwyz)
The bear-wolf and the mouse liberate a proud Ce 6/8 “Crocodile” locomotive from a railway siding at Bellinzona station. In a race against the bearded vulture and the fly they chug through the Gotthard Tunnel. Although no longer the fastest train on the track, the strong old engine wins the race and becomes a star at the Lucerne Transport Museum.

Chapter 13: Rescued from the Hard Rain (Lucerne, Nidwalden, Obwalden)
A tremendous storm causes Lake Lucerne to rise dramatically, which puts an end to a lively concert at the concert hall on the lake. In the forest of Obwalden a white horse rescues the four friends from the storm and brings them to the chapel of Brother Klaus. Here the bear-wolf has a “thunder-and-lightning” vision: Grandfather Bear of the Stars (Ursa Major) calls him to the Matterhorn and home to Canton Valais.
Songs: Piti-Rasanti (Res Schmid – Marti Brothers), instrumental; Vzbrannoi (Aurore Choir)
Chapter 14: On Via Sbrinz, the cheese pathway (Obwalden, Berne)
On the bank of the River Melchaa a strange fish called a pond loach tells Jimmy Flitz the story of the milk of the mountains. Jimmy serenades the fish with the Cheese Song, which he composed himself. As the day breaks the four friends cross the Bruenig Pass on the “Via Sbrinz”, the “cheese pathway” to the Bernese Highland. But they somehow end up on the wrong track.
