Roger got in a locomotive, and was pushing freight cars down the hump. He was still concerned about the gangsters nearby.
Gangster пони 35: Shoot him.
Gangster пони 46: I'm on it. I'm on it. *Grabs pistol, and shoots at Roger*
Roger: *Takes cover*
The mafia didn't like Roger, and often tried to kill him whenever they could.
Gangster пони 35: Let me do it. *Grabs tommygun, and shoots fifty bullets at Roger*
Roger: *Continues hiding in cab*
After working in the yards, Roger had to put some tank cars in a siding. Another train would take the cars to a dairy, and they would be loaded up with milk.
Roger: *Slowly putting tank cars in siding*
Jeff: *Fixing nearby track*
Roger: *Stops train in siding, then sees Jeff* I remember him.
Jeff: *Sees Roger* I remember him. *Walks over to Roger's train*
Roger: *Jumps out of engine*
Jeff: *Sees bullet holes in Roger's engine* What happened?
Roger: Some gangsters tried shooting at me. My boss just makes me continue with my work.
Jeff: Nopony understands our feelings. Now if Ты were sick, Ты couldn't work, and Ты wouldn't have to worry about gangsters. Would you?
Roger: Good idea. I'll try it.
He did so Далее morning.
Michael: *Answers phone in his office* Hello?
Roger: I don't feel well!
Roger: I can't go to work today.
Michael: Ты sound alright to me. Why don't Ты come over here, and let me check Ты out?
Roger: No. What do Ты think I am, a библиотека book? *Hangs up*
Michael: Great. *Gets on PA system* Attention, Anthony Richards, and Ryan Morrison, please come to my office.
Anthony & Roger: *Arrives in Michael's office*
Michael: Roger is pretending to be sick.
Anthony: How can Ты tell?
Michael: By his voice. I'm getting somepony to bring him here. In the meantime, you'll have to do his work, as well as your own.
Ryan: I'll be able to do that.
Anthony: Good. I knew I could rely on you. Now get going.
So they did. Anthony got in a passenger train, and was using a Pacific to pull it.
Ryan worked in the yards, and would take a freight train westbound later.
Anthony didn't mind his work. When he got to another station, he uncoupled his engine from the passenger train, and drove it towards a hill.
Sometimes on railways, when a train is heavy, it needs extra engines to get up the hill. The engines used to push these trains uphill are called helpers. They get on the train at the bottom of the hill, then they get off at the top, allowing the train to continue on downhill.
Anthony was going to work as a helper today. He parked his engine in a siding, and waited for a freight to arrive.
Gangsters: *Waiting by the tracks on the hill* We're gonna kill that blue unicorn today.
Gangster 57: The sooner, the better.
Engineer: *Blows horn on train*
Anthony: Well, I better get ready to help this train get up the hill.
Engineer: *Gets train pass Anthony*
Gangster 57: He's getting ready. *Loads sniper винтовка with bullets*
Anthony: *Drives engine out of siding, and onto freight train*
Gangster 57: *Aiming rifle*
Gangster 45: Shoot him, shoot him.
Gangster 68: *Looking at train* Wait, don't shoot! That's not Roger.
Gangster 57: *Shoots funnel on Anthony's engine*
Anthony: What was that?
Gangster 68: I told Ты it wasn't Roger.
Gangster 57: Ты should've told me sooner. *Accidentally pulls trigger on rifle*
The bullet hit Anthony's front leg, then the train stopped.
Gangsters: Let's get out of here. *Running away*
Anthony: Help? Anypony? I'm stuck in a train.
Ryan: *Arrives five минуты after the accident* Anthony, are Ты okay?
Anthony: I would've been if Ты got here sooner.
Ryan: Never mind, we'll help you.
Anthony soon got back to Ogden, and was sitting at a bench on the station with Roger.
Roger: I'm sorry about your accident. I'm always cautious when it comes to driving trains near the mafia. They don't like me.
Anthony: Why didn't Ты warn me?
Roger: I didn't think-
Michael: *Arrives* Ты never do!
Roger: *Looks at Michael*
Michael: Ты can start now by doing Anthony's work as well as your own. That'll teach Ты to pretend you're sick.
After placing Anthony's engine into the repair shop, Ryan was going to do his final job of the day. He was driving a train full of equipment for repairing track, when he had to stop at a red signal. Then Mirage arrived in another brand new supply truck.
Ryan: *Opens window in cab, and looks at Mirage*
Mirage: Splendid to see Ты again. I'm test driving supply trucks for my railway.
Ryan: Well done. Cheers, and keep up the good work. *Drives train pass the signal when it changes green*
