Everyone in Ponyville was preparing the evacuation. Many police cars were blocking intersections to make it easier for everyone to make it to the train station. An alarm was heard all over town: link
Ponies: *Driving out of Ponyville*
Police Pony 74: Attention. There is a large, uncontrollable fire in Ponyville. Everyone must evacuate. If you do not have any means of transportation, go to the train station at once. We repeat, if you do not have any means of transportation, go to the train station at once.
Tom: *Stops the train at the station*
Hunter: I'll help the others get on board.
Nikki: *Slides her car into a parking lot, and runs to the train station*
Hunter: We're getting the engine onto the other side of our train. Please remain calm, and get on board the train one at a time.
Everypony slowly got on board the three passenger cars.
Nikki: *Running into the cab of engine 60*
Tom: Nikki, what are you doing here?
Nikki: I heard about the fire, and I came to make sure you were alright.
Tom: Look, don't worry about me. I'll be fine.
Nikki: *Hugs Tom* I'm not leaving you!
Tom: Alright. Carlos, you okay riding in one of the cars with Hunter?
Carlos: If I must. *Steps out of the cab*
Hunter: *Sees Carlos* What's going on?
Carlos: Tom's girlfriend arrived.
Hunter: Oh. Well, at least you can help me get the passengers out of here once we reach Ringoes.
Carlos: *Watching five more ponies get on board* Is that everyone?
Mare 92: I think so.
Hunter: Okay!! *Waving to Tom* We're good to go!!!
Tom: Alright, let's move. *Drives the train to Ringoes* I could use you as my firepony.
Nikki: Okay. When do you want me to start putting coal in the firebox?
Tom: When the time comes, I'll tell you.
They left Ponyville, and were entering Ringoes. They almost escaped the wildfire. They just had to cross a bridge going over a road, and a stream. Above the bridge was a tree, and it caught on fire. One of it's branches were close to falling off. If it did, it would destroy the bridge.
Nikki: Tom, look at that big branch on that tree.
Tom: Don't worry about it. We'll make it across. Only trouble is we need to slow down. We could derail if we don't.
The train slowly made it's way across the bridge, but the branch was slowly moving closer to the ground.
Hunter: *Looks at the branch* Oh god.
Carlos: It's alright. We need to get the other two coaches across, and we'll be okay.
By the time the third coach passed the tree, that's when the branch snapped. It destroyed part of the bridge, and the last coach's rear wheels were stuck. Engine 60 was slipping as the train stopped.
Tom: What happened?! *Closes the throttle*
Nikki: *Looks back* It seems that the third coach is stuck.
Tom: *Pouring sand on the rails, and opens the throttle again* We'll make it out of here.
The eight drive wheels began to slip again, but after a few seconds, and with more sand, 60 managed to get the third coach's rear wheels back on track.
Nikki: *Sighs* That was close.
Tom: *Looks back, as the rest of the bridge gets demolished*
Nikki: So what do we do when we reach Ringoes?
Tom: Get everypony to a safe spot. I'm very glad we survived. I don't think anypony even got killed from that fire.
Nikki: That's good too, because we gotta go on that bicycle ride on Saturday.
Tom: *Chuckles, and kisses Nikki*
