After the party ended, Stephanie was working with Mirage. They were driving a freight train back to Cheyenne from Denver.
Mirage: I thought আপনি did splendid. What did আপনি think?
Stephanie: I think I did good too. That was a pretty good run we had. *Slows down as the train goes into the yard*
Mirage: Now it's very important to stop right পরবর্তি to the tower there.
Stephanie: *Stops train পরবর্তি to tower*
Stephanie: Why do we have to stop পরবর্তি to the tower?
Mirage: That way, we get as close as we can to the switch in front of us. After we stop, we need to uncouple the engines from our train. We go অগ্রবর্তী over the switch, then Snowflake switches the track to a siding. We park the engines there, and somepony else drives them into the servicing facility.
Stephanie: *Laughs* That's a lot of information. I don't think I can remember all of that.
Hawkeye: *Arrives* Remember all of what?
Stephanie: Oh, hi. Mirage was just telling me about what goes on in the yard.
Mirage: Where have আপনি been Pierce?
Hawkeye: Driving trains, just like আপনি two. Now if আপনি excuse me, I need to go to the station to drive a passenger train. I need to go all the way to North Platte without stopping for anything. *Walks away*
Stephanie: So, his name is Pierce.
Mirage: Yes, but we call him Hawkeye.
Stephanie: How come?
Mirage: Two reasons. He has very good eyesight, and his last name is Hawkins.
Stephanie: Ah, I see. The first syllables are the same.
Meanwhile at the station.
Hawkeye: *Climbs into engine* Hello Stylo.
Stylo: Ready to go Hawk?
Hawkeye: Ready when আপনি are.
Stylo: *Blows horn twice, and rings the bell*
Hawkeye: *Drives the train*
Just as the train left the station, a টাট্টু wearing a trench কোট carrying a big suitcase ran onto the platform.
Suitcase Pony: Stop that train!
Pete: *Arrives* Hey, what's going on?
Suitcase Pony: I missed my train for North Platte! Stop it immediately!
Pete: I can't sir. That train has orders not to stop until it reaches it's destination.
Suitcase Pony: Then get me another train!
Pete: Wait here, I'll be right back. *Runs to his office*
Back at the trainyard.
Stephanie: Can I ask আপনি something?
Stephanie: Do আপনি know if Jeff is dating anypony?
Stephanie: No, as in আপনি don't know, অথবা no as in he isn't dating anypony?
Mirage: No as in he's single. He was divorced five months ago. Why?
Stephanie: I danced with him at the party earlier today, and I think I'm falling in প্রণয় with him.
Mirage: Well if আপনি do তারিখ him, I wish আপনি the best of luck.
Suddenly, Pete's voice was heard on the loudspeaker.
Pete: Attention, Nocturnal Mirage, and Stephanie Anderson, please প্রতিবেদন to my office immediately!
Stephanie: Let's go.
They both arrived at Pete's office, and saw the টাট্টু wearing the trench coat.
Pete: This gentlecolt has missed his train to North Platte, and would like another train to take him there. I want the both of আপনি to drive the train for him.
Stephanie: We got it.
Mirage: Step this way sir, and follow us.
All the way from Cheyenne to North Platte, everypony was notified about the special train Stephanie, and Mirage were driving. Hawkeye, and Stylo had to stop their train in a siding.
Hawkeye: Why are we waiting? *Gets out of train*
Stylo: This oughta be fun to watch.
Hawkeye: *Goes up signal tower, and knocks on the door*
Signal Pony: *Opens door* Yes?
Hawkeye: Why is my train in a siding? I have orders not to stop until I reach North Platte!
Signal Pony: Sorry sir, a VIP is riding a train to North Platte, and he doesn't want to be late.
Hawkeye: Oh yeah? Well where is he? *Hears a train horn, and looks behind him*
Stephanie, and Mirage were driving a switcher pulling only one coach. The টাট্টু inside the coach was the one wearing the trench coat.
Hawkeye: What the hay?
পরবর্তি morning, he was still angry about it until Stephanie came to see him.
Hawkeye: *Points at Stephanie* You!! *Walks closer to her* আপনি made me a laughing stock last night!! I oughta মুষ্ট্যাঘাত আপনি in the face really hard.
Stephanie: I'm sorry. I had to drive a special train.
Hawkeye: *Calms down* আপনি had to?
Stephanie: An important টাট্টু was on that train. He ordered me, and Mirage to drive that train non stop until we got to North Platte. We had a splendid run, but...
Hawkeye: It can make somepony nervous if he, অথবা she, especially the she, doesn't know the route they're taking.
Stephanie: *Giggles* Exactly. You're such an expert.
Hawkeye: Well I can't argue with that. Come with me, today Pete assigned us to work together on getting a freight train into Pocatello.
Stephanie: Where's that?
Hawkeye: Idaho. You'll প্রণয় it. If we go 70 miles an hour, it should take us no less then four hours to get there.
