This is the final part of the third episode of T.H.O.E. When most ponies talk about trains, they often think about passenger trains, others think about the trains of other countries. Then there are those ponies that talk about model trains.
These model trains run on electricity that runs through the tracks, and provides power to the engine on the train. They've been around for over one hundred years.
Pinkie Pie: I've been trying to save up on a model train set, but Mr. und Mrs. Cake won't let me. Zhey say zhere is not enough room, but vhat do zhey know?
Applejack: My sister Applebloom wants one, but sadly.. *Takes hat off, and cries* We're too poor!
Fluttershy: I know someone that lives near my house that has a cool model train set. He has lots of tracks running around his house.
While some ponies make their layout look realistic, taking place in either the past, or the present. Others have fun, being as creative as they can be with getting many different trains running around.
One day, Rainbow Dash got a cool layout set up, and she had it set up during the winter, when it was snowing.
Rainbow Dash: *Making train go around* It's a good thing none of the tracks are covered up in snow yet. I didn't get any snowplows yet. *Laughing*
Camera Pony: That's funny.
Rainbow Dash: You got that right. You should see the layout that my special somepony has. He's not really a pony, but he's a good guy.
A grey hedgehog lives nearby Fluttershy, and he is the one that Fluttershy said had the cool layout. He has a table set up near the walls of his home, and it goes through five rooms of his house.
Sean: I see you like my layout.
Sean: All I need now, is the friendship express. Other than that, I am happy with my train layout. *Having trains go around his table*
Camera Pony: *Filming model trains*
Sean: Come here, I got something to show you.
Camera Pony: *Walking towards Sean*
Sean: *Pointing to glass case* This is where I put most of my engines when they're not in use. I like to switch things up from time to time.
Camera Pony: That's a lot of engines.
Sean: You got that right. You know how much it cost me to get my entire layout to set up?
Camera Pony: What?
Sean: Five hundred thousand dollars.
Sean is not the only one to spend a big amount of money on his model trains. Lots of ponies throughout Equestria, and many other countries spent over two hundred thousand dollars on their trains, and their layout. In the end, it's all worth it.
Railways have helped out Equestria in many ways, by getting freight across the country, for those who need it.
Many cities in the east coast, such as Manehattan, Fillydelphia, or Boston have the Acela, the fastest passenger train in all of Equestria.
Las Pegasus is not always about money, and casinos. They get a lot of visitors, and goods from trains as well.
And to top it all off, Equestria has the world's fastest freight train with a speed of 75 miles an hour. Though not as fast as the high speed trains of Europe, it's faster than any other freight train in the world.
