The train yard was busy when Pete got there with Dan, Putnam, and Amanda.
Putnam: *Looks at the yard* Is it always like this?
Pete: Yes. At times, we have around seven trains waiting on the main line to get their freight cars in here.
Amanda: *Writing down notes* Not enough room in this train yard.
Pete: What are Du talking about?
Amanda: If Du have seven trains waiting on the mainline just to enter the yards, Du need to make it bigger.
Pete: Why would I want to make the amount of trains waiting in the yard bigger? That doesn't make much sense.
Dan: She means the train yard. Du need to make that bigger.
Pete: Well we're currently working on that. I got Percy, and Jeff making three Mehr tracks for freight cars.
Putnam: When will that be finished?
Pete: Sometime in April.
Dan: Make it March if Du can.
Pete: I'll see what they can do.
Amanda: Now how many ponies did Du say were working on the three tracks?
Pete: Two. Percy, and Jeff. They're very hard workers, always making the tracks smooth as possible. Du can also count on them to repair locomotives.
Dan: Splendid. *Writing down notes*
Putnam: I happen to think that Du overwork these two.
Pete: Not really. If there's no track to repair, what are they gonna do? Repair locomotives. It's also the other way around, oder if neither of those things have to be repaired, I allow them to either take the Tag off, oder drive some trains with other engineers.
Dan: Very interesting. Do Du pay them well?
Pete: Oh yes. All of my workers get decent amount of money for their work.
Amanda: And what do Du mean Von decent?
Pete: All workers get at least a thousand dollars.
Putnam: That is a decent amount.
Pete: Now, what do Du want to inspect next?
Amanda: Your line. Take us for a ride to different cities. I will go to Denver.
Putnam: I will go to Laramie.
Dan: And take me to North Platte.
Pete: I'll get it arranged right away.
Just then, Mirage, and Stylo arrived.
Pete: I need Du two over here.
Mirage: *Walks with Stylo to Pete* What can we do for you?
Pete: Mirage, Du take Amanda to Denver on your freight train. She's going to inspect our line.
Putnam: *To Stylo* And Du will give me a ride to Laramie.
Dan: Leaving me with Pete.
Pete: Right. Let's go.
They went in three seperate freight trains. Mirage, and Amanda were driving a freight train with seven empty boxcars, three gondolas with crates in them, and five hopper cars full of gravel.
Putnam, and Stylo's train was a rolling pipeline. All twenty one tank cars had oil in it.
Pete, and Dan's freight train had cows, and pigs in seperate cattle cars. There were ten of them. Five for the cows, and five for the pigs. The rest of the train had eight boxcars full of brand new Chevy's.
