Time: 8:38 AM
Railroad: Union Pacific
Jeff went into Pete's office at the station.
Jeff: toi wanted to see me sir?
Pete: Yes. Let me ask toi a question. What do toi know about the Lehigh Valley Railroad?
Jeff: Not much. All I know about it is that it's a short railway in the east coast. Why are toi asking me about it?
Pete: There's a shortage of track repairers in Neigh Jersey. You'll be taking an airplane from this city into Jersey City. From there, a stallion with a sign of both the Union Pacific, and Lehigh Valley logo will be there waiting for you.
Jeff: I see. When do I go?
Pete: Right now. *Gives Jeff a fifty dollar bill* Hopefully, General Grant will help toi buy your ticket at the airport.
Jeff: He better. If he doesn't, I may need help from the president.
Pete: Alright, good luck Jeff.
Jeff: Thank toi sir. I will not let toi down. *Leaves*
Pete: *Hears his phone ring* I wonder who that could be. *Answers the phone* Hello?
Michael: Pete? Can toi help me out?
Pete: What is it?
Michael: I need an extra poney over here to repair track.
Pete: I'm sorry Mike, I'm short on employees as well.
Michael: What about Jeff?
Pete: The Lehigh Valley is borrowing him.
Michael: That railroad is all the way in the east coast toi bastard. Why would toi send him all the way out there?!
Pete: The boss on that railway had a short temper.
Michael: Yeah? Well Roger, Anthony, and Donut will have short tempers if I don't get another poney to help repair the track.
Pete: Alright, I'll send Percy over, but toi owe me big time.
Michael: Whatever toi say.
Meanwhile, Jeffery arrived at the airport in a taxi.
Taxi Pony: *Stops at the airport* That'll be $2.50
Jeff: *Gives the taxi poney $2.50* Have a good day. *Gets out of the cab*
Taxi Pony: That unicorn must be fucked up in the head. Nopony has ever a dit that to me before. *Drives away*
Jeff: *Enters the airport* One ticket to Newark Airport, Jersey City.
Airport Pony: toi got it. *Gives Jeff a ticket* Enjoy your flight.
Jeff: Thanks. *Walks to his airplane*
As for Hawkeye, Stylo, and Gordon? The three of them were waiting for a freight train in the yards. They were going to push the cars from the train down the hump in four switchers.
Gordon: I'm glad Jeff is gone.
Stylo: How could toi say that?
Hawkeye: He's the best poney we have for repairing track, and locomotives.
Gordon: Yeah, well he won't be blocking our line with track repairs.
Stylo: toi do realize that repairing track is important.
Gordon: Not as important as getting to your destination on time.
Pete: *Talking in the loudspeaker* Attention, Percy Sigma, and Gordon Suite, rapporter to my office.
Gordon: Ha! I bet I'm gonna get a vacation, and Percy will be fired.
However, that was the complete opposite of what he was expecting.
Pete: *Looking at Gordon, and Percy* Now toi two are most likely wondering why I called toi down here.
Gordon: Nope. I know why we're here.
Pete: I'm sure toi don't, so fuck you.
Gordon: toi got something to say?
Pete: The reason I called toi down here was because the Southern Pacific needs another poney to help repair track. That's where toi come in Percy. toi will take the suivant train to Ogden, and help out until Michael gets plus ponies.
Gordon: And, what does this have to do with me?
Pete: Since Percy, and Jeff will not be here, I need you, and Orion to do their work.
Gordon: Oh no! I will not repair track. It's unnecessary, and causes too many delays.
Pete: Those delays will save your life. Now get going toi two.
Percy walked onto the station platform, and Gordon followed. Just then, Metal Gloss arrived in a passenger train.
Percy: Metal Gloss!
Metal Gloss: What?
Percy: Is this train heading to Ogden?
Metal Gloss: It sure is. Climb aboard.
Percy: *Gets into the cab suivant to Metal Gloss*
Gordon: Where's Orion?
Metal Gloss: He's coming back here with a freight train from Dallas.
Gordon: Alright. Pete wants me, and him to repair track while Percy, and Jeff are away.
Metal Gloss: Where did Jeff go?
Gordon: Neigh Jersey. Pete says he sent him to work on the Lehigh Valley for a few days.
So far, Jeff was on an airplane, currently flying over the state of Kansas. He was looking vers l'avant, vers l’avant to working on the Lehigh Valley Railroad, but was also nervous about it.
