At the station in Los Pegasus, Michael got ready to take Stylo to Cheyenne.
Stylo: Where are we going?
Michael: I am taking you to Cheyenne. Another worker wants to switch jobs with you, and see what it's like on our railroad. You must impress the Union Pacific's boss for me. Show them what a typical Southern Pacific worker is capable of.
Stylo: You got it. With all that training you gave me, I'll do my best.
Michael: That's just what I want to hear. Let's get going. *drives to Cheyenne*
It was a long way to go from Los Pegasus to Cheyenne, but by the time they got there, Gordon was ready.
Pete: Now, please don't try to cause any trouble during your visit.
Gordon: You got it.
Stylo: *Jumps onto platform from train*
Pete: Whoa. We got ourselves a little daredevil over here!
Stylo: *Laughes* I am a pegasus Mr. Reimer.
Pete: Please, just call me Pete. Everypony calls me that.
Stylo: Alrighty then Pete. What would you like me to do first?
Pete: I would like you to work with Metal Gloss, and get a freight train into St. Foalis.
Metal Gloss: *Arrives* Hi, I'm Metal Gloss.
Stylo: Nice to meet you.
Gordon: *Enters Michael's train*
Michael: Hello Gordon, I'm Michael.
Gordon: Yeah, great to meet you. Let's get out of this hell hole.
Michael: Hell hole? Are you kidding me? You're lucky to be working on the Union Pacific.
Gordon: Let's just get out of here.
Michael: Ok, if you say so. *Leaves station*
Metal Gloss: *Enters freight train*
Stylo: *Enters engine* Ok, so what am I doing?
Metal Gloss: You'll be my fireman.
Stylo: If you insist. *grabs shovel, and puts coal in firebox*
Metal Gloss: What's it like on the Southern Pacific?
Stylo: It's good. Work conditions are great, and my boss plans to have the entire line dieselized by 1958.
Metal Gloss: Oh. I'm sorry to hear that. Our railway will most likely be dieselized in 1959.
Stylo: Don't get me wrong, I like steam engines, it's just that operating a diesel is much better. You don't need to waste half a day with a fire just to get the locomotive going.
Metal Gloss: It only takes half a day if you work slow. I love steam engines, and I'm glad to be driving this one.
Stylo: Alright. The signal should turn green soon.
Stylo was right. The signal turned green, and they were off.
