Ethan, and Lee continued moving down the line, trying to reach New York City.
NS 6901: *Towing three New Jersey Transit engines, but stops to block Ethan* Going somewhere switcher?
Lee: u took over this line as well?!
NS 6901: Yes we did. If u try going backwards, you'll run into meer of my friends. u two should turn yourselves in while u still have the chance. Maybe we'll spare you.
Ethan: You're lying.
NS 6901: *Deploys an AK74*
Lee: They're gonna kill us no matter what we do. *Closes his eyes, awaiting the inevitable*
A raket hit the NS diesel in front of them, knocking him off the tracks.
NJT Engines: *Going away*
Ethan: Look at that.
Lee: *Opens his eyes* Lauren.
Lauren: *Removes the front section of her streamlining, revealing her face. Her front number board says 475*
Ethan: Hold up! You're both 611, and 475?
Lauren: Yep. I wear the streamlining to make it easier to defeat bad guys.
Lee: That's impressive.
Lauren: u already knew that though.
Lee: Can't hurt to give u a compliment, can it? I never did get a chance to, when Baltimore took down our whole operation.
Ethan: u worked with her before?
Lee: Yeah. This is Lauren.
Lauren: *Removes the rest of her streamlining, turning back into 475*
Lee: We worked together in trying to bring back the Norfolk & Western.
Lauren: But Buick Baltimore wouldn't approve.
Lee: Squires, NS's CEO at the time, thought our idea of reopening the Norfolk & Western was an excellent idea, but Buick knew every trick in the book to make us stop. Even with help from CSX, we still couldn't beat Buick. *Has a tear roll down his eye* Lost Jeff and Bryce to him as well.
Ethan: Jeff, and Bryce?
Lauren: Other Norfolk & Western engines. Listen, it's not veilig to be stopped on this line. u should work your way to Fort Wayne Indiana. I know someone who can help you. Her name is Jessica.
Lee: How can she help us?
Lauren: She sent me a message on Instagram, informing me of a resistance she's setting up. They know someone in Chicago that might be able to help out.
Lauren: Workmen on her railroad. Unfortunately however, there's only one engine in operation there, but Jessica and her vrienden hope to get in touch with Robert Snyder once they arrive at Chicago. He once worked for the United States Railway Association, and helped create Conrail, but when the USRA went defunct, Robert went into exile. He doesn't have internet, television, not even a toaster. He doesn't know about what Norfolk Southern is doing, but if you, and Jessica can help get him up to speed, he can help u stop them. He's very strong. Lifted a lot of weights back in the day. Probably still does.
Lee: Sounds like he's been taking this exile thing too seriously, but I'll take your word for it. If he can help stop Norfolk Southern, we'll go get him.
Ethan: Will u help us get to Fort Wayne though? It would be easier for us if u stuck door our side.
Lauren: Of course. *Activates her streamlining, turning back into 611* I'll have to find a wye to turn around first.
Lee: Take your time Lauren.
