Episode 3: Dig In
The Island Of Errol is a new island that was discovered near California in the United States of America. Four cities were created, and five railroads were built. There were a few hills, but so far, there was no source of water, other than the Pacific Ocean surrounding it. Because of this, the people living on the island had a shortage of water.
At the white house, plans were being discussed on how to fix the water shortage.
Assistant: Mr. President, what are your plans on fixing the water shortage on our newest island?
President: We'll have to create a bunch of lakes, and a water reservoir for every city.
Assistant: How do we do that Mr. President?
President: We'll have to create them ourselves. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna make the speech outside. *Walks out of whitehouse, and stands in front of a podium*
People: *Taking pictures, and filming the president*
Person 35: Mr. President, have you found a way to stop the water crisis on Errol Island?
President: We're going to dig bodies of water on the island, so that the citizens will have access to it. We are going to build three lakes, and at least one water reservoir in each city.
The news soon spread on Errol Island. The engines on the Eastern Pacific were interested.
Carter: Do you know what this means?
Shayne: Yeah. A lot of business for us.
Sean: And where there is business, there are trains for us to pull.
Victoria: And when there are trains for us to pull, there's money.
Nikki: And when there's money, there's a rich railroad.
Sean: The more we earn, the better.
Mr. Baldwin: *Sticking his microphone out of a small house near the sheds* Alright everyone, settle down.
Sean: With who?
Mr. Baldwin: I'm in no mood for jokes. Just because the president is planning to make water reservoirs, and lakes on this island, does not mean all the fame will go to us. I want you all to do your work with no foul ups.
Sean: We can do it. *Goes to collect his passenger train*
Shayne: Me, and Carter were just going to bring those supplies to The Hunterdon Central sir. Weren't we Carter?
Carter: Oh, yeah. We can't keep them waiting. *Leaves sheds with Shayne*
Nikki: I'll get those freight cars into Weaver station.
Victoria: And I shall help Sean bring passengers into Impala Station.
Mike: I'll go with Nikki.
There are three engines on the Eastern Pacific you haven't met yet. Andrew, a Santa Fe diesel. Then there's Bri, and Tabby, two steam engines from the Pennsylvania Railroad. They're both fast, but Bri is shyer then Tabby.
Mr. Baldwin: Andrew, there's some flat cars containing metal that need to go into Mossberg Harbor.
Andrew: Yes sir. *Goes to yards*
Mr. Baldwin: Tabby, I want you to bring passengers into Middlesex Station, as well as Tracy, and Bellete.
Tabby: Right away. *Goes to get her passenger cars*
Mr. Baldwin: And Bri?
Bri: Yes sir?
Mr. Baldwin: You'll be heading off the island, and into Santa Cruz.
Bri: Y-yes sir. *Goes to get her train*
Mr. Baldwin was wondering if assigning Bri to go into Santa Cruz was a good idea. She was shy obviously, and he was concerned that Bri would be afraid of heights, and be late going into Santa Cruz.
Meanwhile, Andrew brought the metal into Mossberg Harbor where he met Shayne, and Carter doubleheading on a freight going into Hunterdon.
Andrew: I'm bringing in supplies, and you're bringing out supplies. Can't they make up their mind?
Shayne & Carter: *Laughing*
Shayne: Okay Carter, let's get this train rolling.
Carter: Ready when you are.
Shayne & Carter: *Pulling train out of harbor*
Mike followed Nikki into the yards to bring in freight.
Nikki: I don't need help. I can do this myself.
Mike: Well, you never know. What if the brakes on those freight cars come on by theirselves? What would happen if you were pulling this by yourself, and you had difficulty going up a hill? Mr. Baldwin wouldn't like that.
Nikki: Okay, fine. You can help me.
Mike: *Pleased* Hey, that's what I want to hear. Let's do this.
While they were pulling the freight train, Bri got to the bridge that went into Santa Cruz. She was scared, because it was a very long bridge. What she didn't know was that the president was in Santa Cruz, and that he wanted to take a look around the island, to see where he would put the lakes, and water reservoirs.
Bri: *Hyperventilating* I don't know if I can do this. *Slowly goes onto bridge* So far so good. *Hears a creaky noise* Ah! It's gonna collapse! *Reverses off the bridge*
Georgia: *Appears, and one of her cars are making the creaky noise* Oh no. I have to stop, and make sure that my cars ain't going bad.
The president as well as a few other passengers were waiting in Santa Cruz. They were waiting for Bri to arrive, but it was three hours since she made her first attempt to go across the bridge. So, Makenzie was assigned to bringing the passengers to Mossberg Harbor, and Sean took them to Mr. Baldwin from there.
The president was not happy about being delayed, and complained to Mr. Baldwin about it. The next day, Mr. Baldwin spoke to Bri.
Mr. Baldwin: What happened yesterday which caused you to be late?
Bri: I was scared of the bridge! It was going to collapse.
Mr. Baldwin: No Bri, it wasn't. I can assure you that the bridge is perfectly safe. There is nothing to be afraid about.
Bri: Yes sir.
Mr. Baldwin: Good work, now the president wants you to take him around our entire line. You will drop him off at Impala Station when he decides to go see the rest of the island.
Bri: I can do it. *Goes to collect her train*
But she soon thought about the president. He was very important, and if he didn't like the way Bri was pulling the train, he would probably end up getting her into trouble. Bri went to Cadillac Station, where the president was waiting for her.
President: Just in time. *Gets on board train*
Bri: *Sweating, and blushing* I hope I do a good job.
Conductor: All aboard.
Bri: *Blows her whistle, and pulls her train*
President: *Relaxing in chair*
Bri: *Thinking to herself* What am I being so nervous about? I can do this, and I'll be good at it too. I just have to give the president a quick, safe, and smooth ride around our line until he decides to go into Impala Station. After that, the engines on the Eastwood & Mossberg Railway will take care of him.
And during the rest of the trip, Bri was not nervous. She chugged along the line showing the president all of the land around their line. He was pleased with the ride, and told Mr. Baldwin that Bri was the best engine on the Eastern Pacific.
As for the lakes, and water reservoirs, they were completed after four weeks. All the people on Errol Island now have quick access to clean water.
