Nikki: *Still Pagsulat her letter*
Conductor: *Walking towards Nikki* Excuse me miss, are you one of the passengers for the train heading to Chicagoat?
Nikki: Yes sir.
Conductor: Then you better get back on board. The engines have been repaired, and this train will leave soon.
Nikki: Thank you. *Gets on train. She sits down on a seat, then continues Pagsulat her letter*
There are two ponies that repair track, and locomotives that I know. Their names are Percy, and Jeff. Percy is nice, but Jeff is always switching up his personality. One araw he's nice, and the susunod day, he's mean.
Percy: *Sweating as he hammers a spike into a rail*
Jeff: Percy, you seem to be tired.
Percy: I am tired, but I don't have any water.
Jeff: Take some of mine. *Gives water to Percy*
Percy: Oh thanks Jeff. *Drinks water* That's really nice of you.
Jeff: *Walking towards the yards*
Pete: Jeff, I need you to-
Jeff: Repair engine 4013, I know. You told me yesterday.
Pete: I just wanted to make sure you remembered.
Jeff: What, you think I'm an idiot or something?
Pete: Take it easy.
Jeff: Well you're wrong. *Walks away*
Percy: Good morning Jeffrey.
Jeff: Shut up. *Pushes Percy into garbage can*
Percy: *Finds a one hundred dollar bill* Who would throw money away? Oh well, finders keepers.
Coffee Crème is my best friend. We went to high school together, and seeing her here makes me happy. I met her once when I brought a train into their yards. I met her while turning my engine on the turntable.
Coffee Creme: *Looking at engine, then notices Nikki* Nikki!! *Hugs Nikki*
Nikki: *Hugging back* Good to see you again after all these years.
Coffee Creme: When did you start working for this railway?
Nikki: I don't work here, I work for the Southern Pacific.
Coffee Creme: Oh.
Nikki: But don't worry, I'll be bringing in a lot of trains for y'all. How's Honey Bee? I haven't seen her since she moved out of our neighborhood.
Coffee Creme: She's dead.
Coffee Creme: Somepony crashed into her train three years ago.
Nikki: Aw, that's a shame. But, what can you expect from railroading? *Gets back in engine* Make you sure you don't crash now, you hear?
Coffee Creme: Just get your engine off that paikutan so I can turn my engines around.
Nikki: I'm on it. *Drives off turntable*
Coffee Creme: *Sighs* Great to see her again. If only she worked on the Union Pacific.
Metal Gloss is another female engineer. She loves steam engines madami than any other parang buriko I know.
Percy: *Putting oil on the valve gear of a challenger*
Metal Gloss: *Arrives* You're doing a really nice job.
Percy: Thank you. Pete told me you were going to use this engine to get a freight train up Sherman Hill.
Metal Gloss: That's right. These challengers are nice, but I want to drive a Big boy. Those engines are the largest steam engines in the world.
Percy: Maybe tomorrow.
Metal Gloss: Yeah maybe.
And last, but not least, there's Pete. He's the head honcho for this section of the Union Pacific, and does his job well.
Pete: *Signing papers in his office, then hears his phone, and sagot the call* Hello?
Orion: *Sings* Praise the lord, and pass the ammunition. Praise the lord, and pass the ammunition.
Pete: Either you sing a good song, or don't sing at all. *Hangs up*
Hawkeye: *Knocks on door*
Pete: Who is it?
Hawkeye: It's me. Let me in.
Pete: No. I have over two hundred papers to sign. *Hears phone ringing, and sagot it* What?
Business: This is the car dealership at Omaha. I need twenty new Foalsmobiles, and Studebakers sa pamamagitan ng Friday.
Pete: I'll get them to you. *Hangs up, but the phone rings again. He picks it up* Yes?
Orion: How about I sing a song sa pamamagitan ng the Andrew Sisters?
Pete: *Getting angry* How about you go bother somepony else?! *Hangs up*
Hawkeye: Now may I come in?
Pete: Yeah, whatever.
Hawkeye: *Enters the office*
Pete: *Hears phone ringing again*
Hawkeye: *Leaves the office*
Pete: *Answers phone* Orion, you stop pag-awit those songs of yours, or you'll never get fired!
Mom: Peter! Don't talk like that to your mother!
Pete: Mom? How did you get this number?
Everypony here enjoys working here. Except Gordon, and Orion.
Conductor: All aboard!
Nikki: *Finishes Pagsulat the letter*
Write back to me as soon as you can.
Your loving sister, Nikki.
The brown earth parang buriko stared out of the window, as her train leaves the station.
