Nikki got to the turntable, and was turning her engine around.
Coffee Creme: *Looking at engine, then notices Nikki* Nikki!! *Hugs Nikki*
Nikki: *Hugging back* Good to see te again after all these years.
Coffee Creme: When did te start working for this railway?
Nikki: I don't work here, I work for the Southern Pacific.
Coffee Creme: Oh.
Nikki: But don't worry, I'll be bringing in a lot of trains for y'all. How's Honey Bee? I haven't seen her since she moved out of our neighborhood.
Coffee Creme: She's dead.
Coffee Creme: Somepony crashed into her train three years ago.
Nikki: Aw, that's a shame. But, what can te expect from railroading? *Gets back in engine* Make te sure te don't crash now, te hear?
Coffee Creme: Just get your engine off that piatto, piattaforma girevole so I can turn my engines around.
Nikki: I'm on it. *Drives off turntable*
Coffee Creme: *Sighs* Great to see her again. If only she worked on the Union Pacific.
When Nikki got to the yards, she saw another pony in a small diesel pushing some freight cars onto a train.
Nikki: *Stops engine*
Percy: Ma'am? Your train is ready.
Nikki: *Sees train* I see. *Drives forward, then goes backward onto the track where the freight train is*
Snowflake: *Turns signal yellow*
Nikki: *Waiting for green signal*
Snowflake: *Turns signal green*
Nikki: *Blows whistle twice, then drives train out of the yards*
Nikki was going to a town in Utah called Ogden. When she arrived at the trainyard, she saw her sister Meadow, pushing freight cars down the hump in the yard.
Nikki: *Stops train da yard tower* I wonder if Meadow can hear me.
Meadow: *Pushing two cars*
Worker: *Uncouples freight cars from train*
The freight cars then rolled down the hump, and into the yards.
Meadow: Well, my work here is done. *Drives backwards*
Nikki: *Clearing throat* ciao Meadow!
Meadow: *Stops engine, and sees Nikki's freight train* Aw come on! I just finished with pushing sixty freight cars down that hill!
Nikki: And now te have sixty more! *Jumps out of engine, and runs toward coupling*
Meadow: Nikki, don't te dare!
Nikki: *Uncouples engine from freight train then runs back to engine*
Meadow: I'm gonna tell our parents on you!
Nikki: Our parents moved out of the house last week, remember? *Gets back in engine, and drives pass a switch track*
Meadow: *Sighs, then drives engine behind freight train*
Nikki: *Drives engine onto a track successivo to train*
Meadow: *Pushes train down hump*
As Meadow was doing her work, three stallions with fedoras, and trench coats arrived.
Stallion 1: Stop the train!
Nikki: *Notices train stopping, and gets out of her engine, to walk to Meadow*
Stallion 1: Are te Meadow West?
Stallion 2: Come with us please.
Nikki: Wait, what's going on here?
Stallion 3: Your sister is coming with us to the station. We need to talk with her, and your boss.
Stallion 1: Finish her work in here, then meet us in the station.
Nikki: Okay. (I wonder what's going on.)
