When Mirage returned with Nicole, Stephanie was helping some ponies uncouple freight cars.
pony 75: Uncouple the Missouri Pacific car from the rest of the train.
Stephanie: *Uncouples a Missouri Pacific Boxcar from the train, and watches it roll down the hump*
Mirage: *Walks over to Stephanie with Nicole* Hello Steph. Glad te could make it.
Stephanie: Thanks Mirage. So is this all we're doing? Taking turns in uncoupling freight cars from trains?
Nicole: Not exactly. There are lots of freight cars containing stone that need to get into Greeley from here.
Stephanie: And they need us to drive those trains.
Stephanie: What's the stone for?
In Cheyenne, the yards were getting full. The freight cars didn't have to travel far down the hump, to couple up to a train.
Mike: How the bloody hell is this possible?
Hawkeye: *Passes Mike* The lack of trains leaving the yards. *Continues walking, heading for two locomotives in the servicing facility*
Mike: *Confused* If there's a lack of trains leaving the yards, shouldn't there be a lot of trains leaving at once?
No. We all know what lack means
Dan: *Stops his locomotives successivo to the one Hawkeye climbs into*
Hawkeye: *Climbs into his locomotive*
Dan: *Passes by* How's it going Hawk?
Hawkeye: Not bad, but without Mirage, and Nicole, we're getting less trains out of here, and the yards are getting full.
Pete found out about what was happening, and called for Mirage, and Nicole to return, but decided to let Stephanie stay, so she could help with the stone trains.
Stephanie: *Stops her train in Denver*
pony 82: *Sees the empty cars* Nice. te got all of the stone unloaded.
Stephanie: Uh yeah. That was supposed to happen.
pony 82: Mirage, and Nicole had to go back to Cheyenne, so it looks like you'll be the only one helping us out.
Stephanie: That won't be a problem. We can do it.
