The Sherman On Sherman Hill
February 1, 1954
Although it was 34 degrees farenheit, the sun was shining in Cheyenne, and the sky was clear from clouds.
Hawkeye: *Playing poker with Stylo* Alright, I'll put in three dollars.
Stylo: *Puts in three dollars* What do Ты have?
Hawkeye: Three kings, and two sixes. That gives me a full house.
Stylo: Great, all I had was a three of a kind.
Hawkeye: Aw, gee. That's too bad. Maybe you'll win Далее time, oh wait. We can't play another round, because our train will be here soon.
Stylo: We have another twenty minutes. Why do Ты want to stop so soon?
Hawkeye: That's none of your business.
Stylo: Why is it none of my business?
Hawkeye: That's also none of your business.
Stylo: And why is that none of my business?
Hawkeye: Even that's none of your business.
On sherman hill, some track needed to be repaired. Percy, and Jeff were there to repair the tracks.
Percy: *Putting in new nails* How's the other side doing?
Jeff: Good. When we get further up, we'll have to put in some new sleepers.
Percy: What about the ballast?
Jeff: We can put in new ballast once the sleepers get installed.
Mafia Pony: *Shoots gun at Percy*
Percy: *Lays on ground*
Jeff: *sees mafia*
Mafia Ponies: *Shooting at Jeff*
Jeff: *Taking cover behind inspection car*
Mafia Pony: *Shoots new nail*
Percy: That fucking nail was brand new! Now we have to replace it again!
Percy: Ты know what I meant.
Jeff: Should we take a chance, try to get in, and drive away?
Percy: I will if Ты want to.
Jeff: Alright. On the count of three. One-
Percy: *Gets in inspection car, and drives away*
Jeff: three. *Runs after car*
Percy: Come on, get in!
Jeff: *Jumps in*
Percy: *drives back to station*
The mafia ponies went to the track, and started damaging it. They were waiting for a train to pass by, so that it would be derailed, and they could steal anything they wanted.
Back at the train station, Pete was waiting to go to a meeting.
Pete: *Checking clock*
Percy: *stops inspection car on platform* Pete, we have something important to tell you!
Pete: Alright, but get that car out of the way. A train could be coming here soon.
Percy: *Moving inspection car out of way*
Pete: *Goes to bench, and sits on it*
Percy & Jeff: *Walk onto station platform*
Pete: What is it?
Percy: We were fixing track on Sherman Hill, like Ты told us to do, but some ponies in the mafia came, and attacked us.
Pete: That can't be good. We need to fix that track right away. If we don't get it fixed, we can't get any trains to go up the hill.
Jeff: We're aware of that Pete. Now, how do we stop those gangsters?
Pete: Ты mean the mafia?
Jeff: Same thing.
Pete: I know a good friend that can help us. I'll go call him right now. *Goes to office*
Stylo: Jeff, do Ты have any money that I can borrow?
Jeff: Why do Ты want to borrow money?
Stylo: Pierce keeps winning it from me in poker.
Jeff: Can't Ты quit?
Stylo: No. I need that money back now.
Jeff: I can't help you.
Stylo: Aw, please?
Meanwhile in Pete's office
Pete: Hello, Michael?
Michael: Pete? What's up?
Pete: I have to Отменить our meeting. The mafia is attacking us, and we need to fix some track.
Michael: Okay. What time do Ты want to postpone the meeting to?
Pete: Далее friday sounds good.
Michael: Okay. Good luck with those gangsters.
Michael: Same thing. *Hangs up*
Pete: Now, to make another call. *Dialing number*
Magnum: *Answers phone* Hello.
Pete: Magnum, it's me Pete Reimer.
Magnum: Peter! How are Ты my friend?
Pete: Not too bad, but I have a problem. The mafia is attacking us, and they won't let us fix this section of track on Sherman Hill. We need help.
Magnum: Why not call the police?
Pete: They keep getting killed. We need something better then Cheyenne's Finest.
Magnum: How about a tank?
Pete: A tank?! You're crazy.
Magnum: Relax. There's going to be no ammo for the guns. Just drive up to them, scare them, and they won't bother Ты at all.
Pete: What kind of tank did Ты have in mind?
Magnum: A Sherman. I was just fixing this tank that got back from Korea last year. Ты can have it in thirty minutes.
Pete: Sure. Thanks. *Hangs up*
Hawkeye: *arrives* Percy told me Ты were having trouble with the mafia.
Pete: Relax, I got the problem to get rid of those scumbags.
Hawkeye: Did Ты call the cops?
Pete: No. Even better.
Hawkeye: The police?!
Pete: No. A friend of mine is going to bring in a Sherman tank.
Hawkeye: Ты have really gone crazy.
Pete: Nope. It wasn't my idea.
Hawkeye: You're still crazy.
Pete: Bullshit. Now get out of here, I'm going to make an announcement.
Hawkeye: *Leaves office*
Pete: *On speaker* Attention everypony. A tank will be here in thirty minutes. Under no circumstances are Ты to touch it. I will use it to scare away the mafia, and then it goes back to it's rightful owner. Do not go near the tank at all!
Everypony understood, but Gordon and Coffee Creme were not around to hear the message. They would arrive at the station from Kimball Nebraska.
Gordon, and Coffee Creme arrived at Cheyenne with a freight train. They saw the Sherman, but didn't know why it was there.
Gordon: *Thinks of a plan* It's here. Finally.
Coffee Creme: What is?
Gordon: My tank. I ordered it from a shipping company, and they delivered it to me at last.
Coffee Creme: Ты must be very rich if Ты can afford a tank.
Gordon: Right. *Stops train near entrance of train yard* We just have to back this up, and get the train into the yard.
Red Rose: *Switches track*
Gordon: *driving backwards into yard*
Coffee Creme: Stop so that the-
Gordon: Caboose is near the switch track. I know. *Stops*
Wilson: *Drives engine to caboose*
Gordon: Wait here, I'll be back. *teleports to end of train*
Wilson: How was your trip?
Gordon: Good. *Uncouples caboose* Ты can take this to the other cabooses, and then use the engines on my train to push the cars down the hump.
Wilson: But they aren't switch engines.
Gordon: Does it matter? Get the job done! *teleports back to Coffee Creme*
Coffee Creme: Welcome back.
Gordon: Yeah. Now, we go to the tank, and I'll Показать Ты how great I am at driving it. *Teleports himself, and Coffee Creme to the tank*
No one was around when they arrived.
Gordon: *gets in tank*
Coffee Creme: *Waiting outside of tank*
Gordon: *Starts tank*
Pete: *Hears tank* Oh shit. *Runs towards tank*
Gordon: *Starts driving the tank* Weeee!! This is fun.
Coffee Creme: He really can drive a tank.
Pete: *arrives* Who's driving that thing?!
Coffee Creme: Gordon.
Pete: I should have known.
Gordon: *turns tank around* Pete's there to see me... Whoaeihotsuesuahgt, PETE?!!
Pete: Gordon, stop!
Gordon: *Tries to stop tank* I don't know how to stop this thing!! *Drives past Coffee Creme, and Pete*
Coffee Creme: At least he didn't kill us.
Gordon: *Driving tank towards Sherman Hill* What do I do? *Opens hatch* HELP! I'm on a runaway tank!!
Snowflake: Иисус christ.
Orion: And I thought I've done stupid things.
Gordon: *Driving away*
Pete: We need to stop him. Pierce, get a Bigboy right now!
Hawkeye: I'm on it. *Runs to servicing facility*
Jeff: *Maintaining engines*
Hawkeye: Pete wants me to use a Big Boy. Do we have any?
Jeff: Number 4012 is available.
Hawkeye: Good, I'll use that one. *gets into engine*
Jeff: *gets in engine* Might I ask why Ты need this?
Hawkeye: To save the day. *Drives engine*
Gordon: *Going up hill*
Mafia Ponies: *Taking spikes out of train tracks*
Gordon: *Sees mafia* Oh no Ты don't. *Aims turret, and pulls trigger* What? No ammo! What kind of a dumbass would own a tank, and not put in any ammo?!
Mafia Ponies: Let's get outta here! *Running away*
Gordon: Good. Now they know not to fuck with us. *drives back to station, but is destroying the track*
Hawkeye: *Driving towards Gordon* I see his tank.
Gordon: *Drives out of way*
Hawkeye: *Stopping engine*
Jeff: Will we stop in time?
Hawkeye: I hope so.
They stopped just before the pilot wheels became derailed.
Gordon: *Driving back to station*
Percy: He's coming back.
Pete: Oh no.
Gordon: This is it. I'll be stuck in here forever.
But suddenly, the tank stopped.
Gordon: *Comes out of tank* Эй,
everypony. I saved the day.
Ponies: *Booing, and throwing garbage at Gordon*
Pete: Ты used up all the gas on this thing!
Gordon: Oh well. *Walks away from everypony* I tried my best.
