Jeff and Bryce had a conversation while pulling their train to St. Louis.
Jeff: Did I ever tell bạn about the last time I went to St. Louis?
Bryce: I don't think I've ever been there myself. Anyways, to answer your question, no. bạn never told me about the last time bạn went to St. Louis.
Jeff: It was August, 2017. I was with two ES44's on loan from Union Pacific.
Bryce: What happened?
Jeff: We went to a place to grab a few drinks when this 4-8-2 pops up. They're both intoxicated, and try to fight each other to win her over. They even thought I was trying to hit on her.
Bryce: bạn still dating Lauren?
Jeff: Yes. We might see her in Lexington.
Inside the Firebird, Lee and Janet were having a conversation of their own.
Lee: If all goes well, we should reach St. Louis within 14 hours.
Janet: bạn think Buick Baltimore will strike again?
Lee: Yeah, but it won't be easy for him to find us. He may know where our HQ is in Norfolk, but I don't think he'll find us. Nor will he find Jeff and Bryce. Let's try not to worry about him, and keep going westbound.
Janet: Westbound and down!
Lee: *Driving his Firebird on Interstate 64*
Jeff & Bryce: *Pulling their train*
Bernard: *Enjoying the ride with the executives*
Jeff & Bryce: *Passing through Richmond*
Buick: *Giving the thumbs up to Gordon*
Gordon: *Climbing a poll, and places a little bird on hàng đầu, đầu trang of it*
The song fades away as NS headquarters was jammed.
NS Employee 64: Hey, I'm not getting any signals.
NS Employee 69: We Mất tích everything.
NS Employee 34: Contact Squires at once. Maybe he knows what to do.
One of the employees stared at the bird Gordon placed on hàng đầu, đầu trang of the poll. It did not di chuyển at all. He thought it was odd, but didn't say anything.
Buick: *Talking on a walkie talkie* Okay team, Squires is totally in the dark. Only we can communicate with each other. Happy hunting.
Dragovich: Thank bạn Mr. Baltimore. *Looking at thêm diesels near him* Gentlemen, we must not let Mr. Baltimore down. Capture Lee Brent, and all his comrades before they reach St. Louis!
