Episode 8: Contract
The Mossberg Harbor is where freight cars get loaded with railroad supplies for the Hunterdon Central Railway. The boats are brought into the harbor by a small boat called a tugboat.
When a tugboat recieves a job, it's called a contract. One of the tugboats from the California Tugboat Facility, named Jim had the contract on bringing in the boat with the railway supplies, as well as some other boats. The engines on the Eastern Pacific like Jim.
Shayne: The Hunterdon Central's Railway supplies arrived ahead schedule five days in a row thanks to you Jim.
Sean: And I've been getting a lot of passengers to take around the island.
Carter: We're glad to have you bringing all these things for us Jim.
Jerry: Yeah man, you're the best.
Jim: *Smiles* You guys are too kind. I'm just doing my job, and I like working with you all.
Sean: We like working with you too.
Shayne: Listen, me, Jerry, and Carter need to get going with our train.
Sean: Yeah, and I better pick up more passengers at Bellette station before it's too late.
Jim: Alright you guys. I'll see you tomorrow.
Jim watched his friends leave the harbor as they continued on with their work.
Jim: I like all of those guys. I wish I could work here for the rest of my life.
But another tugboat company bought the contract from Jim's company, and he was no longer able to work at the harbor.
Next morning, as Sean arrived at the harbor to pick up more passengers to bring into Impala Station, he saw two tugboats next to each other. One had a cigar, and the other was just smiling.
Sean: Hey. What happened to Jim?
Palmetto: That old piece of junk has been replaced by us.
Bradenton: Now that there's two of us, more work can be done.
Sean: I don't believe it. Jim could do more work here then you ever could.
Palmetto: You better keep your mouth shut stripe face, or you won't get any passengers.
Sean: *Angry* You have to get my passengers off of that ship, or you'll get fired!
Bradenton: Seems like someone has a bad temper.
Sean: You haven't seen anything yet. I'm telling Mr. Baldwin about this! *Goes to Mr. Baldwin*
As for the other engines, they were not pleased by Palmetto, and Bradenton's attitude. They refused to do anything. The situation was so serious that the Eastern Pacific engines decided to join forces with the Northern Errol Line engines. Sean, Nikki, Jeff, and Bryce were talking to Robert, Kenny, and Tony.
Sean: Alright. Those two tugboats won't give us any freight, or passengers. Jim was much more useful then those two combined, and was nicer. Now how do we get rid of those two tugs?
Robert: We could use a gun, and sink them.
Jeff: We're trains. We have no hands.
Bryce: We can't use guns even if we wanted to.
Tony: This is tough.
Sean: *Thinking* It is, but I think I have a solution.
Kenny: Tell us.
Sean: *Whispers to the other engines*
Next day, Sean brought in passengers, while Nikki, and Tony brought tank cars full of gasoline.
Sean: Hey Palmetto!
Palmetto: What do you trains want now?
Sean: We're bringing in people, and supplies that have to go off the island. Is there any ship around here?
Bradenton: No, and you won't get one unless you get angry like last time!
Mr. Baldwin: *Sticks microphone out of passenger car* I don't think so. Your behavior is unnacceptable, both of you! Instead of getting more work done, you've been getting less done. Things were going much better with Jim around, and I'll do whatever it takes to get him back here.
Palmetto: We're not afraid of you.
Bradenton: All you do is stick your microphone out random places, and stay indoors.
Mr. Baldwin: That maybe true, but I have several workers here that will be more then happy to put hoses in the tank cars full of gasoline. With it, they will spray it on you, then light a match, and throw it at you, causing the both of you to catch on fire.
Palmetto: You know what? Forget this.
Bardenton: We never asked to be here in the first place. *Leaves*
Palmetto: *Follows Bradenton*
Sean: Nice work Mr. Baldwin.
Tony: Were you serious about setting them on fire?
Mr. Baldwin: Of course not. I knew if I told them that, they'd think I was serious, and leave.
Two days later, Jim returned. All of the engines were glad to see him back, and things at the harbor were running smoothly.
