So far, Louis wrote his letter about Hawkeye, Stylo, and Orion. Now he was writing about the rest of the ponies he knew.
Percy, and Jeff don't talk much, but they get their jobs done very well. They fix track, you see? And nopony has done a better job then those two so far. They could even fix the track during an earthquake, but you'll never believe what they did yesterday. Those two had to get a freight car back on the tracks, and they did it with stones. Here's what happened.
Metal Gloss: *Looking at derailed car* This is not good.
Percy: It's nothing serious. Watch, you get back in your engine, drive slowly, and we'll get the car back on the tracks.
Metal Gloss: How?
Jeff: Well, look at the wheels. Although they are derailed, they are on the ballast, right next to the rails. We just need to get a few stones, and make some kind of a small hump for those wheels to get back on the tracks.
Metal Gloss: Are you sure it'll work?
Percy: Yeah, I've seen a few ponies in South Equestria do it.
Metal Gloss: Alright, let's do it. *Gets in engine*
Jeff: *Putting stones in front of wheels*
Metal Gloss: *Driving three miles an hour*
Percy: Put a few more on there.
Jeff: *Puts more stones in front of wheels* It's getting there!
The wheels got back on the tracks.
Percy: Yes! *Runs to Metal Gloss* It worked! Drive your train to Cheyenne, and make up for lost time!
Metal Gloss: *Blows whistle twice, and drives train*
Speaking of Metal Gloss, she's Hawkeye's special somepony. Just like Pierce, she has a love for steam locomotives. You'll always find her driving one of those instead of the newer diesels. One day, she got her train out of a sticky situation.
Metal Gloss: *Driving train* We'll be going down Sherman Hill soon.
Coffee Creme: Right.
Metal Gloss: Alright, let's put on the brakes.
Coffee Creme: *Tries to put on brakes* They aren't working.
Metal Gloss: That's not good. If we don't slow down in time, we're done for. I got an idea, cast a spell so we can have water.
Coffee Creme: Oh, a fine time for a drink Metal Gloss. Next I supposed you want some popcorn.
Metal Gloss: Just get the water.
Coffee Creme: *Casting a spell for water*
Metal Gloss: Better hurry.
Coffee Creme: *Finishes spell*
Metal Gloss: *Takes bucket of water, and pours it in firebox*
Coffee Creme: What did you do that for?
Metal Gloss: To kill off power. Without a fire, the steam engine can't go anywhere, now can it?
Coffee Creme: And then, we'll slow down before we crash. Good thinking.
You probably want to know about Coffee Creme next. Well, she's French, and-
Pete: *Arrives* Louis, I don't mean to be a bad host, but the station is going to close soon.
Louis: Okay, I'm almost done.
Pete: *Walks away*
Louis: *Continues writing letter*
I have to go Clint. Enjoy your new career as being an actor. I'm sure, everypony will love seeing you in the movies.
On the next episode of Ponies On The Rails
Gordon gets angry, because Coffee Crème is on a vacation.
