Date: July 23, 1959
Location: Somewhere between Cheyenne, and Laramie Wyoming
Time: 8:03 AM
Railroad: Union Pacific
Hawkeye, and Metal Gloss were driving their freight train at 65 miles an hour.
Hawkeye: *On a radio* Engine 3713, approximately fifteen মিনিট away from Laramie. Request permission to enter your train yard.
Tower Pony: Copy that 3713, the yards are empty, আপনি may enter with your train.
Hawkeye: Thank you.
However, at Cheyenne, things weren't going as smooth as they were in Laramie. Aqua Marine's train was still derailed, and they were trying to get it back onto the tracks.
Orion: Where are those cranes when আপনি need 'em?
Aqua Marine: Maybe they broke down.
Orion: They couldn't have. Every time they're not used, they get maintained so they won't break down.
Mirage: *Arrives* Orion, the cranes broke down.
Aqua Marine: *Makes a হাঁস face while raising a brow*
Orion: Don't rub it in.
Aqua Marine: I didn't even say anything.
Orion: Mirage, who's fixing the cranes if they're broken?
Orion: Well, আপনি can always rely on Wilson to-
Ike: *Arrives* Listen আপনি three, Wilson just broke his leg.
Mirage: He what?
Ike: He was trying to fix the কপিকল so it could lift Aqua Marine's train back onto the rails, but he broke his leg in the process.
Orion: Did আপনি call a doctor?
Orion: Why not? Wilson breaks his leg, and আপনি don't bother to call a doctor? Doesn't anypony here know common sense?
Mirage: আপনি shouldn't be the one talking. আপনি try to get fired on purpose.
Orion: Because, if I quit my job here, Pete will kill me. What part of that do আপনি not understand?
Ike: Every part.
Mirage: A men.
Aqua Marine: Same here.
Orion: *To Aqua* Now আপনি stay out of this.
Mike was still waiting in the caboose like Orion told him to, but he was bored.
Mike: *Gets out of caboose, and walks to Orion* Hello.
Aqua Marine: What do আপনি want?
Mike: I'm bored.
Orion: So? আপনি caused this wreck in the first place.
Mike: No, that was the engineer.
Mirage: Because আপনি told him to drive into the yards, even though there clearly wasn't enough room for you!
Mike: Shut up. I don't have to take this abuse. I'm telling on you. *Walks to Pete's office*
Ike: He's telling on us, for something he did.
Mirage: This can only be disastrous for him.
Snowflake: আপনি two better hurry up. Hawkeye, and Metal Gloss will be here soon with their train.
Orion: We're working on it Snowflake.
And in Pete's office.
Mike: I told the engineer to try, and enter the train yard, because we're blocking the mainline.
Pete: Uh huh, go on.
Mike: Then the পরবর্তি thing I know, he crashes into another train. Then, Orion, and Mirage start blaming me for it, because I'm the conductor.
Pete: Here's the thing Michael, when a train stops, that means it can't enter the yards. Everypony in the signal towers switch the points, so that your train can't be hit. Do আপনি understand?
Mike: I think so. দ্বারা the way, what's a signal?
Pete: Just... Get back to the train yard, and ask Orion.
Mike: Okay, I'll do that right now. *Leaves Pete's office*
