The phone rang at the Rive-Reine station.
Maurice: *Picks up the phone in his office* Rive-Reine... Yes, this is Maurice.. Right, call them... My wife is saving some cheese for me. She's bringing it to me on the Weiter train here. Yes, yes. The train will stop, but there are no passengers. Good. I'll save a piece of cheese for you. *Hangs up*
Nazi Pony: Railroad business, huh?
Maurice: Ah, yes.
Meanwhile, Labiche was still driving the train, but with the signs being changed, they were heading in the wrong direction.
Labiche: *Blows the whistle as he gets near a railroad crossing*
Old Mare: *Closing the crossing gates on one side of the crossing, and then runs across the line to close the other gate*
Labiche: *Passes the railroad crossing*
Old Mare: *Waves hello*
Labiche: *Does not pay attention as he is looking in front of the train*
German pony 84: *In the caboose with Schmidt* Weiter stop is Saint-Avold sir.
Schmidt: *Smiles, and unbuttons his coat*
Labiche: *Slows down, and stops at the station marked St. Avold*
Didont: Should we run?
Labiche: Sargent. May we stretch our legs?
German pony 49: Alright, get down. *Climbs out of the cab*
Labiche & Didont: *Following the German*
German Ponies: *Run towards them as they climb out of the cab*
German pony 49: Corporals watch them. *Walks away*
German Ponies: *Watching Labiche, and Didont*
Schmidt: *Walks onto the station platform, and sees the station master* You! Where's the telephone?
Station Master: *Points inside the station*
Schmidt: Sargent, nopony leaves the train, we will only stop here for two minutes.
German pony 49: Jawohl Captain.
Schmidt: *Gets to the phone, and uses it to call Colonel Von Waldheim*
Labiche: *Walks to the left*
German Ponies: *Switching positions to prevent Labiche from going anywhere*
German pony 1: Tell Maurice that there's cheese on the train, and save a piece for Pierre, and Harlan.
These German ponies were not German after all. They were French ponies in disguise.
Schmidt: Hello Colonel? Colonel, we are in Saint-Avold. Yes Colonel.
German pony 49: *Walks towards them, stopping between the Germans, and Labiche, and Didont* What's it like here in Saint-Avold? Huh? *Awaits a response*
German pony 1: *Frowns as he shakes his head*
German pony 49: Heh. I know what Du mean. I'll be glad to get back to Marelin.
Schmidt: *Walks out of the station* Sarge!!
German pony 49: Yes Captain?!
Schmidt: We must go!
German pony 49: Get up!
The three of them got back in the cab.
German pony 49: Auf wiedersehen.
German Ponies: *Nod*
Labiche: *Blows the whistle, and drives out of the station*
Station Master: *Walking towards the German ponies. He holds a station lamp marked Commercy*
That was the name of the town they're really in.
German pony 49: *Looking out the cab, enjoying the scenery*
Didont: *Lights a cigarette for Labiche to smoke*
