Kansas City, Maresouri
April 4, 1957
Hawkeye, Benny, and Percy were getting closer to Cheyenne, but they would arrive at another conflict in Kansas City.
Hawkeye: *Stops train in front of bridge* There's a derailed freight train on the other side of that bridge.
UP Pony: Hey, come help us!
Hawkeye: *Gets out of engine, and runs to Union Pacific pony*
Benny & Percy: *Following Hawkeye*
UP Pony: We need your help. The Kansas City Southern just had one of their freight trains collide with ours.
Hawkeye: What happened?
KCS Pony: I was driving my train when I saw a green signal, then the Weiter thing I know, I see somepony shouting at me to stop, and that the signal ain't working properly. I put on the brakes, and as I look to the left, I see this pony in his train crash into mine.
Hawkeye: Is somepony fixing the signal now?
KCS Pony: No.
Percy: I can fix it.
KCS Pony: Please, fix it.
Percy: *Runs to broken signal*
Hawkeye: Anypony here from Ponyville?
UP Pony: I'm from Manehattan.
Hawkeye: Close, but no cigar.
Benny: How about Vanhoover?
KCS Pony: No. I was born in Vermont.
Benny: Meh, close enough to Canada.
KCS Pony: That's where Du were born?
Benny: Yeah. Vanhoover to be exact.
Percy: *Returns* The signal is working again.
KCS Pony: Not bad. Not bad. If Du ever feel like finding another railroad to work on, Du Mitmachen the Kansas City Southern.
Percy: I'll think about it.
Hawkeye: Alright, let's continue on.
So the three stallions got back into their locomotive, and continued on their way to Cheyenne.
Speaking of Cheyenne, this is what was happening.
Snowflake: *Watching everypony working in the yards* Five freight trains. They have to work on five freight trains in a row.
UP Pony: *Contacting Snowflake on radio* Attention Cheyenne, this is train 826. Requesting permission to enter your yard, over.
Snowflake: *Gets on radio* Negative, we have no room. Get your train into a siding, and wait for ten minutes, over.
UP Pony: Copy. The train is currently going into a siding. Over, and out.
Mirage: *Looking at the engine of a switcher* Alright, it should be operational now. Turn the key, and get it started.
Orion: *Turns the key in the cab*
Mirage: *Hears the engine* Come on.
The switcher's engine was running, and was repaired.
Orion & Mirage: YEAH!!
Yard Worker: *Whistling*
Orion: Let's get this engine back in action. *Drives slowly forward*
Snowflake: *Switching tracks to have Orion get behind a freight train* Wait for two Mehr engines, then Du can push that train over the hump.
Orion: Roger that.
Mirage: If only Nikki was here to see this.
Orion: Yeah, but if she comes back tomorrow with another freight train, we'll Zeigen her the engine we fixed.
Mike: *Confused* What am I doing again? *Walks upstairs to Snowflake's tower*
Snowflake: Now that we don't have to worry about that, I can listen to some Little Richard records.
Mike: *Enters yard tower* What did Du want me to do again?
Snowflake: You're an idiot.
Mike: Oh. Is that all Du want me to do? Be an idiot?
Snowflake: No really. Du are an idiot. I just told Du five Minuten Vor what you're supposed to do.
Mike: Tell me again. I forgot.
Snowflake: Stand Von the freight cars. Du have a paper to read that tells Du which cars are to be uncoupled. Du uncouple the freight cars that are supposed to be uncoupled, and that's it.
Mike: Okay. Now if Du tell me what my job is, I'll get straight to work.
