The Magical Railway

Post  Christian_Ryan_Boltar on Tue Feb 19, 2013 7:24 am

Here is another story I am currently working on, I just finished the first chapter to it, and here it is.

The Magical Railway

You've heard of a legendary locomotive, and you've probably heard of more than one legendary locomotive. Heck Railroaders and railfans alike all know a Legendary Locomotive when they see one, but here is the story of a Legendary locomotive known as the Crimson Dragon. She was a steam locomotive like no other, and she changed the life a young man named Christian Allen Mandez for the better. But the funny thing is, the Crimson Dragon was not just 1 engine, but it was actually an entity consisting of 2 sister 2-6-6RT Mason Bogie engines that were the daughters of the Famous Calumet & Helica Mining Company number #3, affectionately known as the Torch Lake, from Greenfield Village in Detroit. And here is how one of the sister Crimson Dragon engines was found and how it changed the life of Christian Allen Mandez and his friends.
Our friend Chris was on his way to pick up his girlfriend Katelynn when he received a phone call from her.

Chris: *Receives a phone call*  Hey sweetie.

Katelynn: Hey Chrissy, are you on your way?

Chris: Of course, you know I always am.

Katelynn: Just checking Baby.  So do you think you can help me with my math homework?

Chris: Again?

Katelynn: It’s not my fault math is not my strongest subject, and I need help with my history too.

Chris: Ugh Oh Boy.  Katie Belle, how are you going to learn if I keep answering the questions on your homework for you?

Katelynn: I don’t know, I’m just lucky I got you. *Giggles*

Chris: Darn Right Sweetie.  *Snickers*  Anyway, it won’t be long, I’m less than 5 minutes away…………. HOLY CRAP!!!!!

At the moment, Chris spotted something that he thought was long gone, and no longer existent, but little did he know, that this would become a huge part of his life.

Katelynn: CHRISSY!!! WHAT IS IT?  WHAT IS IT????

Chris: Just a minute, I’m passing through the junk yard and just spotted something amazing.

Katelynn: What could be amazing in a junk yard?

Chris: IT CAN’T BE!!!!!!!   IT IS!!!!!!!!!!  KATIE BELLE!!!!! YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!!!!!!
Right in front of me was a very old 2-6-6T narrow gauge Mason Bogie locomotive along with a consist of very old overton coaches.   The engine looked very rusty, and very far gone, but I knew I couldn’t let this old engine and her train, sit and wrought away for all eternity.   Just then a strange and mysterious voice called to me…….

Aleasha: Save her.  

Chris: What?  Who said that?

Aleasha: You must save the old train, and find a way to bring her back to life, for she is an important link to an unknown world.

Chris: Okay, whatever you say, though I doubt I have the money to fix this train…..

Aleasha: Don’t worry about the money.  Anything you need, it will come to you, just save the old train.

Chris: Alright, if you say so.

Just then, Chris walks up to the front office and talks to the junker about the old train.

Junker: What are you doing here, what do you want?

Chris: I was wondering if you know anything about that old Mason Bogie and her coaches sitting at the far end of the yard.

Junker: Oh, you mean that old piece of junk pile of metal train?   I’ve been trying to get rid of that thing for years, but it would cost me over $25,000 to get the equipment needed to cut it up, money I don’t have.  Unless someone takes that thing away, it’ll continue to sit there until it no longer exists.  Heck, I’ll even take a dollar in exchange for that thing as long as it’s gone and not taking up anymore space.

Chris: Hold on, did I hear you say that you would take a $1 dollar bill for that whole train if I take it off your hands, or am I mistaken?

Junker: No you heard right, I’m tired of that thing taking up room in my junk yard.  It’s too expensive to cut up, it takes up too much room, and it’s becoming an eyesore just to look at it.  I would take anything just to get that thing out of my yard.

Chris: Well here you go.

At that moment, Chris knew there would be no turning back, but it was something he never regretted.

Junker: Thank you, now do what you can to get that piece of junk out of my yard and it’s yours.

Chris: Thank you very much sir.

Junker: Don’t thank me, if you get that think out of my yard, I’ll thank you.

Luckily Chris's parents owned a trucking company, so getting a hold of a few low bed trucks to tow the train out of the junk yard was not going to be a problem, and his family also had a vacant warehouse close by so storage was not problem either, it was like the train was chosen to end up in his possession.  The next thing he does is call up the trucking company to take the train away, then gets a hold of security at the ware house so they know about the storage of the train.  
Shortly after he make the phone calls, and runs out of the junk yard to pick up Katelynn excited to tell her the news.

Katelynn: Hmmmmmm, mmmmmmmmmm.   MMMMMMMMMMM. CHRISSY!!! WHERE ARE YOU?!!!!!!

Chris: Hey Katie Belle, I’m sorry I’m late.

Katelynn: Well, it’s about time.  You had me worried, and kept me waiting for 25 minutes.

Chris: I know sweetie, but there is a good explanation for it, but you’re not gonna believe me.

Katelynn: I’m listening.

Chris: Well, when we were talking on the phone, I was passing through a junk yard.

Katelynn: Sooooo.

Chris: In that junkyard was an old 2-6-6 Mason Bogie Steam locomotive along with its entire train.   It’s a piece of our history that was sitting in a junkyard, where it clearly should be in a museum or tourist railroad operating under full steam.   I then spoke to the junkyard owner about it, and it turns out, it’s too expensive to cut up for scrap.   In the end, he sold it to me for a dollar.

Katelynn: Chrissy, I love you, but have you gone nuts?  You’re pulling my skirt about this, and I’m not buying it for one second.   Now tell me the truth!

Chris: That is the truth, and I will prove it to you.

Chris then grab Katelynn by the hand, and tows her along.

Katelynn: CHRISTIAN ALLEN MANDEZ, YOU LET GO OF ME THIS MINUTE!!!!!

Chris: Hold on, you have to see this.

Just then they arrive at the junkyard, and low and behold four trucks are in the process of loading the train, and preparing to tow it out of the junk yard.

Trucker: Sir, is this your train?

Chris: Yes it is.

Katelynn: WOW!!!! WOW!!!! WOW!!!! WOW!!!!!! CHRISSY THIS IS AMAZING!!!!! IT’S SO COOL, A REAL STEAM TRAIN!!!!!

Chris: See, I told ya.  And now, I am the proud owner of this train.   My parents own a private Jet, a limo, a private yacht, and a helicopter, so it makes sense that we own our personal train too, and a steam powered one makes it all the more special.

Katelynn: Yeah, and I know how much you love trains.

Chris: However, it’s gonna be a real project restoring this thing back to life once after I take the external jacketing off this thing.  Not to mention all the wood wrought on the frame and coaches, the asbestos insulation, and all of the corrosion that has eaten away at the metal.

Katelynn: How are you gonna get the money for this?

Chris: No idea.  We are looking at well over $1 million dollars per car, and at least $10 million for the engine.  Knowing that this is one of only 2 surviving Mason Bogies in the entire world, and she’ll need an entire new welded boiler barrel, a new fire box, along with a new set of casted cylinders, not to mention the frame is going to need major components replaced, we’re practically removing a lot of the original parts and building a new engine.   The pattons for this thing are only available in Detroit.

Katelynn: WHAT?!!!! IT WOULD REALLY COST THAT MUCH?!!!

Chris: Yes, not to mention each of the coaches needs new wooden frames, the bogies need to be replaced, and the brakes need to be upgraded to air in order to be compliant with FRA.

Katelynn: CHRISSY!!! ARE YOU CRAZY??!!!!!

Chris: I know, I am, but this is probably the answer to my problem.

Katelynn: What problem is that hun?

Chris: Well, you know I’ve told you how empty I have felt lately….

Katelynn: Yeah, so…….

Chris: This could be my answer to filling that void inside of me.   I mean, I don’t know what my dream is, or what I want to do in life, but maybe this train could be the answer.

Katelynn: Well, maybe you’re right, and you do need something to keep you happy.  Also Chrissy, you know how much I love you, and would never leave you, and if this is your answer, I’m all for it.  I will do whatever I can to support you.  If you have a dream, go for it.  My dream is to make a career out of my cheerleading, and if your dream is to fix this old train back to the way it was, then I say go for it, and I’ll always be here for you.

Chris: Thank you Katie Belle.  You really a wonderful girlfriend.

Katelynn: I know, and I love you very much Chrissy, so if you’re unhappy, I’m unhappy, and if you’re happy, so am I.   Now lets make plans to fix it.

Chris: I do work at a car dealership near the steel mill and airport, so there’s bound to be resources that can help restore this train.

Katelynn: And your family’s rich, so I’m sure they’ll help you.

Chris: Just because we can afford it doesn’t mean they’ll say yes to it.

Katelynn: But your sisters Alexis and Lexi are my best friends, and your parents can’t say no to them, so I’ll talk to your sisters, and will help them persuade your parents about this.

Juan: Count me in Bro.

Chris: Juan!  How long have you been here?

Juan: Since the trucks started loading up the train.  Is it really true, that you’re the new owner of this train?

Chris: Yes.

Katelynn: It turns out that the train was too pricey to scrap, so the owner wanted to get rid of it for a dollar, and now it belongs to Chrissy.

Trucker: Alright, we’re all fully loaded, and ready to go.  Now where to?

Chris: Well….

Just then Chris's faithful Volvo Cross Country, named Volvagia shows up.  Ya see, Volvagia is not like any other Volvo Station Wagon; she’s a car with a mind and personality of her, and she’d make sure you know it too.

Chris: Perfect timing Old Girl, as usual.

Volvagia: BEEP!!!

Chris: Alright you guys, get in.

Katelynn: You got it Chrissy.

Juan: Right behind you Bro.

Chris: Alright everyone just follow me.  *Depresses the clutch, throws the car in gear, and drives off*

They then drive over to the warehouse close to down town, but it was hard getting around without attracting attention.

Juan: Bro, why is everyone staring?

Katelynn: Well wouldn’t you if you saw a train being towed on the back of a semi?

Juan: I see your point.  Anyway, now you own the train, and have a temporary home for it, how are you gonna restore it, and find a permanent home for it?

Chris: Well, the family’s estate has plenty of land to have track laid down, and have shed built for the entire train, but where to run the train is a good question….  And how we’ll come up with $15 million dollars to bring the train back to life is beyond me, but we’ll find a way.

Not long after they arrive at the warehouse, and it doesn’t take long for the temporary track to be laid down and the train unloaded off of the trucks.

Trucker: Looks like everything’s in order.  Well, good buy, you’ll manage for now, I expect.

Chris: Yes, and thank you very much for your help.

Katelynn: WOW!!!!  I still can’t believe it Chrissy.

Juan: Your very own train, how cool is that Bro?

Chris: Hey, it’s not just mine; it’s yours too.  Katelynn also had a say so when it came to purchasing this train, and I know how much you love old steam trains like I do Juan, and you’re my best friend.  Also Katie Belle, you’re my sweetheart, so what’s mine is yours.   This train is just as much yours as it is mine, so it’s our train.

Katelynn: I like the sound of that.

Juan: Our train it is.

Chris: We may be young, and still kids in some people’s point of view but it doesn’t mean we’re not capable of reviving this magnificent iron horse.

Juan: Yeah, lots of young people do amazing things.

Katelynn: I may be 17, but I am almost an adult, and equally responsible.

Chris: Yeah, and I trust both of you, so we can do it, if we try.

Katelynn: I’m with you Babe, and I always will.

Juan: As am I bro.

Chris: Alright.  Volvagia?

Volvagia: Beep!!

Chris: Lets go home.

Volvagia: BEEP BEEP!

They all take one last look at the old train before getting in Volvagia and setting off for home.  Chris still didn’t know how he was gonna tell his parents about his big purchase, but he knew that they had to know.

Chris: Lets tell them about it together.

Katelynn: Good idea.

Juan: Good idea Bro.

They then drive home, but his little sisters Alexis and Lexi weren’t too happy.

Alexis: CHRISSY!!!! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN???!!!!

Lexi: MOM’S GONNA KILL YOU!!!!! BESIDES YOU SHOULD REALLY KEEP ME INFORMED!!! I'M YOUR BABY SISTER AFTER ALL!11

Katelynn: GIRLS!!!! It’s okay, I’ll tell you about it.

Juan: Yeah, don’t have a cow.

Chris: It’s a long story.

Alexis: Well, we’ve got time.

Lexi: Let’s hear it Chrissy!!!

Chris: You know I am 6 and ½ years older than you Lexi, and 4 and 1/2 years older than you Alexis, so you 2 better watch it.

Juan: Yeah, and besides, what you’re gonna hear, is so darn awesome.

He then tells his 2 little sisters the whole, and luckily Katelynn and Juan back him up on everything.

Lexi: REALLY!!!!!

Alexis: NO WAY!!!!!

Juan: You better believe it.

Katelynn: I didn’t believe him either until I saw the train being loaded onto the trucks.

Lexi: So how many pieces are there to this train?

Chris: Well that would be a 2-6-6T Mason Bogie locomotive, 2 open air sightseeing cars of some kind, a baggage car, a combine, 2 normal coaches, and an observation parlor car.  

Juan: The train cars are narrow gauge overton coaches that date back to sometime in the 1870s or 80s.  The locomotive is a narrow gauge Mason Bogie which was a very rare beast, and it’s one of last 2 that still survive in the entire world.

Katelynn: The other survivor is somewhere in Michigan……

Chris: Yes, Detroit Michigan, that would be the Torch Lake locomotive over in Greenfield Village, and she still runs.

Alexis: That is so amazing!

Lexi: Yeah, talk about a million to one find big brother!!

Alexis: Mommy and Daddy won’t be too happy though…..

Lexi: They’ll kill you once after they find out that you used the family’s trucking company….

Alexis: And using our vacant warehouse.

Chris: We actually don't own the warehouse, we rent it.

Alexis: Even worse.....

Katelynn: But you know your parents can’t say no to you 2, and they’re like my mommy and daddy as well.

Lexi: You have a point Katelynn.

Alexis: Yeah, you are kinda like our sister.

Katelynn: Exactly, and you know how much I love Chrissy, and want to support him..

Alexis: Yeah…..

Lexi: I got ya…… Don’t worry Chrissy, we have your back. I do anyways, not so sure about Alexis though.....

Alexis: LEXI ANNABELLE MANDEZ, I HEARD THAT!1!!!

Lexi: I was just sayin....

Chris: Thank you.

Alexis: Hey, you’re our big brother, and you’ve always been there for us.

Lexi: Yeah, whenever Sissy and I got into trouble, you always took the blame for us, and protected us.

Alexis: And you got us out of trouble by taking responsibility for stuff you didn’t do.

Lexi: When it was our fault, so it’s time we backed you up.

Alexis: Yeah.  I know we aren’t the nicest younger sisters, but I always want us to be very close.

Chris: Hey, I know I have kinda pushed you 2 away because I am getting to the point where I need to move out and live on my own.   But know, that I’ll always be your big brother, and will be here whenever you need me.

Lexi: Thank you, but it’s time for us to back you up.

Chris: Thank you.

Katelynn: We love you Chrissy, very much, and where ever you go, I go.

Juan: Same here with me Bro.

Chris: Thank you.  Now, how are we gonna tell mom and dad about this?

Lexi: Hmmmmm.

Alexis: Fortunately they’re overseas for a month, so it’ll be easier to tell them over the phone.

Chris: You got that right.

They all then go to the phone and make the call, and all 5 of them were very nervous and didn’t want to give a straight answer.

Chris: HEY Mom, hey Dad.

Alexis and Lexi: HEY!!!!!!

Katelynn: Guess what, you’re not gonna believe it, but….

Juan: CHRIS JUST BOUGHT A FULL SIZE MASON BOGIE!!!!

Chris: JUAN!!!! That was as suttle as a car alarm.

Lexi: Yeah, way to go Juan……

Mr. Mandez: What’s a Mason Bogie?.........

Chris: It’s a full size steam locomotive, along with a set of 6 vintage train cars.  The train is very historical and dates back to the 1870s.   It’s very rare and the only other one of its kind resides at Greenfield Village in Detroit Michigan.

Juan: The train is narrow gauge, so it runs on rails only 3 feet apart, and is smaller than a mainline train.

Mrs. Mandez: How much did it cost you?

Chris: One dollar, turns out the guy in the junkyard wanted it gone.

Katelynn: And Chrissy has always been looking for something to make him happy…..

Lexi: And it’s so cool.

Alexis: We do have our own plane, yacht, limo, and helicopter, so having our own train makes sense.

Juan: And it’s a steam train too.

Mr. Mandez: I see your point, and do we know how much it would cost to restore?

Chris: Well if it’s gonna be a top of the line ground up rebuild, I would say it would be at least $1 million dollars a train car, and about $10 million dollars for the engine.  The locomotive no doubt has an old wrought iron lap-seam boiler that is not compliant to FRA, so it will need a proper welded steel boiler, along with a new set of cylinders, frame repairs, new wheels, and many new external components.  So we could be looking at $15 million to $20 million dollars of restoration work.

Mrs. Mandez: One of Our private jets was more than that.

Mr. Mandez: It was over $35 million, and our yacht was $28 million.  We do need a train to get us to some parts of the country that no road, or river can access, and that wouldn’t require the use of our planes, so you have our approval.   The budget is $20 million, to restore the train.  But it has to be top notch, I don’t want any corners cut.  Chris, I want you on the project, and this train will be your responsibility.  

Mrs Mandez: We also have plenty of land to place some of our cute movie props such as that darling little train station, so this train is a perfect reason to put that station in use.

Mr. Mandez: We’ll build a place to store the train on our estate, and deal with track construction in the town, but you need to be on the project.

Chris: Got it.  And thank you very much.

Mrs Mandez: You’ve done well.  Your father and I thought about buying a train, but you beat us to it, and now we have one.

Mr. Mandez: Be sure that the project is take care of and done as quickly as possible.

Chris: We’ll do.  Thank you.

Lexi: Thank you so very much Mommy.

Alexis: We love you Daddy.

Katelynn: Take care you 2.

Juan: It was great hearing from you.

Chris: Phew.  I can’t believe how smoothly that went.

Katelynn: I know….. CHRISSY, YOU’RE AMAZING!!!

Juan: WE NOW HAVE OUR OWN TRAIN!!!!

Alexis: So Cool!

Lexi: I know!

Chris: You see all the model trains I have over the house, but it was my first trip to Disneyland that got me into steam trains.

Alexis: You’re so lucky that Mommy and Daddy took you there.

Lexi: Yeah, they’ve never had the time to take us there.

Alexis: And you go there on your own every Thanksgiving.

Chris: It’s my most favorite place to go, I can’t help it.

Katelynn: I know baby.

Juan: Well, lets order pizza, I’m starving.

Lexi: You said it.

Alexis: Okay; who are we ordering from this time?

Chris: I’ve got it.

And so began a whole new chapter in their lives that would change their fate for the better, but little did they know, a terrible loss was to come.

Chapter 2

Rebirth Of An Old Steam Engine

Many days and months have passed, and as each day passed, more and more work progressed on the beautiful train’s restoration.   A brand new fully welded steel boiler was fabricated along with a brand new set of cylinder castings.   New drive wheels, pilot and trailing wheels were casted for the engine, and brand new cab, tender frame, and stainless steel water tank & fuel bunker were constructed.   The locomotive was looking better and better as restoration progressed.

Chris: We’re almost there; hopefully within the month we can have a fire in this thing.

Juan: I don’t know how you managed to get the money to construct the parts for this thing in such a short time.

Chris: I know what you mean.  It takes most railroads years to get ahold of funds to get their engines in the shop, let alone brand new parts made for their locomotives.   Not even Disney is able to manage a fast restoration.  

Juan: Well if you don’t count the Ward Kimball.

Chris: Well that restoration was rushed for Disneyland’s 50th, and everything was still a mess.  It took Disney 6 more months to fine tune and correct everything that was not complete on that engine.

Juan: And shortly after it took Fred Gurley and Ernest S. Marsh nearly 2 years for a full on ground up rebuild.

Chris: Not to mention Walt Disney World still has Lilly Belle in pieces in Strasburg.

Juan: We’ve been very lucky to come as far as we have in this short period of time.

Chris: Well getting the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village to make us a copy of Torchlake’s patens was not easy.  It took a lot of convincing, and persuasion for the museum to finally approve of us getting the patens as well as the plumbing diagrams.

Juan: There is still a lot of plumbing to be done.

Chris: Well the hydro is out of the way, and the engine passed with flying colors.

Juan: We still need to plumb the pipes from the water tank to the injectors, along with the air compressor, air tanks; not to mention the oil lines and emergency fuel shut off valves.
Chris: Not to mention there is more piping to be done in the smoke box, an ashpan has to be installed, the headlamp and back up lamp as well as the cab lights need to be wired; we still have a ways to go.

Just then Katelynn, my sisters, and their friends arrived.

Katelynn: Hey Chrissy, how much longer will you be here?

Chris: Juan and I are almost done for today, we just need to reinstall the last bearing for the pilot wheels.

Juan: So probably an hour or too.

Katelynn: Okay, that’s fine babe.

Alexis: She looks amazing.

Lexi: It’s hard to believe the way it looks now compared to how it looked when…….

Brittany: When you bought it?

Ashley: Well duh, of course she meant that.

Chris: Well it’s thanks to the fact Juan and I managed to get ahold of the patens and diagrams from the Henry Ford Museum, and the hard work of the Cloke Locomotive Works in assisting us in construction of the parts.

Juan: Not to mention the help we get from Durango when it comes to the wheels, Hillcrest in getting the tender tank, Tweetsie, Chattanooga, and many more places you can think of with amazing restoration shops.

Chris: On top of that, 2 of the coaches are in Strasburg Pennsylvania, the observation parlor car is in Durango, both the combine and the baggage car are being restored at Tweetsie, and the Cloke Locomotive Works are working on building 2 new open air sightseeing cars just for our train.

Juan: And all the bogies are in Chattanooga.

Chris: It is still unknown when which car will be back, but we do know that restoration work on all 5 original coaches are coming along beautifully.

Alexis: Wow!

Lexi: This is so cool.

Katelynn: I know, isn’t it?

Brittany: So, how has getting approval for laying the tracks through the city been?

Juan: Surprisingly it’s been very straight forward.  The Mayor wants to see some of the town’s history return, and most of the original right of way for old railroad line that ran through the town’s canyon’s and river gorges are still intact.   So getting the track laid won’t be too bad.

Chris: It does mean that tracks will be coming off our property, and new grade crossings will have to be made through town.

Juan: Digging up road tarmac will require streets to be shut down, and with the number of trenches, new bridges will need to made as well as repairs made to the old trestle.

Chris: Clear Creek’s Trestle you mean?

Juan: Yeah that’s the one.

Katelynn: That bridge freaks me out, I shall worry about you guys going over that thing.

Chris: The bridge may be 99 feet high, and 478 feet long, but it’s made of redwood which is very strong.   That bridge was very well constructed, and it even held locomotives as heavy as 130 tons.  

Juan: Those Rio Grande Mikados and Logging Mallets were heavy locomotives, and on long trains, those engines doubled headed; even on the bridge, and the thing’s still standing.

Chris: According to FRA, that bridge surprisingly only needs some need beams, wood treatment, and reinforcement nuts and bolts, but is fairly solid and safe enough to handle more trains even as heavy as 130 tons to rumble over it. Though the Clear Creek Bridge maybe scary, it's nothing compared to the Ashtabula Horror Bridge.

Juan: Our engine is only 38 and ½ tons, so it’s fairly light on it’s feet, and you're right about the Ashtabula Bridge.

Chris: The coaches are wood too, and not steel, so our train is fairly small, and is well within the safe weight limit, though I'd worry about it on the Ashtabula Horror Bridge.

Katelynn: Still, I worry about you 2, and don't bring up that name again.

Alexis: As do Lexi and I, and we don’t want you 2 to get hurt. And please don't say that name again.

Chris: Juan and I have been hurt by some of the machines in reassembling this locomotive, not to mention steam engines hurt people all the time, it’s part of operating steam locomotives, but it's nothing we can't handle.

Lexi: Yes, we know, but we still worry.  

Brittany: Katelynn loves you very much Chris, and Juan you’re like a big brother to all of us.

Ashley: We all worry about you guys; little sisters just don’t want to lose their big brothers.

Katelynn: Or boyfriends for that matter.

Chris: As for finding an engine crew to operate this locomotive, Juan and I will be doing it since, he and I are of legal age, and both of us have trained at Roaring Camp and Sumpter Valley as Engineers For A Day, and we have hours of experience hostling, firing, and operating steam locomotives.

Juan: FRA has approved of us, and is cool with us running this engine over public grounds as long as we operate the engine safely.

Katelynn: Still, I’m worried.  You 2 be careful on that thing.

Chris: We will sweetie.

Juan and Chris then set back to work on reinstalling the locomotive’s pilot bearings, and it wasn’t long after when the locomotive was completely reassembled, and all 7 train cars had arrived safely and were coupled behind their engine.  But they were still nowhere near completion.   The entire train needed to be painted, and the locomotive needed a bell and whistle if the train was to operate.

Juan: What colors should we paint this locomotive?

Chris: Not just the engine but the coaches too.

Juan: The train is beautiful, but it has no flare or personality without color.

Chris: And it looks naked.  On top of that, we need a bell and whistle.

Katelynn: I have an idea for colors.

Alexis: So do I.

Lexi: Me too.

Brittany: Me three.

Ashley: Me Four.

Chris: Okay girls; give us your ideas.

Juan: Lets hear it. ☺

Girls: PINK!!!!!

Chris & Juan: NO WAY!!!!

Girls: Awwwwwww Boooooo!

Chris: Sorry, but that would not look right.

Juan: Yeah, we appreciate your opinion but……

Chris: Have any of you seen a pink train?

Katelynn: Yes!

Alexis: We Have!

Juan: Rosie from Thomas & Friends does not count.

Girls: Awwwwwww! ☹

Aleasha: Red….. A beautiful Rosette and Crimson Red are the right colors.  Purple striping, silver chrome, and gold brass piping, very little black, some green flower arrangement patterns, and fine oil rubbed bronze.

Chris: Thanks again whoever you are. GUYS!!!! I think I got it.

Chris then opened up his laptop and set to work.  The entire train was going to be a beautiful rosette red color as the main coat.  Red was Chris's favorite color, and from seeing Disney, Great Brittan, The Cloke Locomotive Works, and many other places with red steam locomotives, he felt that he couldn't go wrong with red, and some voice told him to go for red.  The locomotive was then going to have gold and purple striping on all 14 wheels along with delicate striping on the bogie, chrome silver boiler bands, dome centers, handrails, dry pipes, and gold brass grab irons and brake wheel.   Beautiful green flower arrangements were to be painted on the cab panels, oil rubbed bronze was used on the smoke box supports, and headlamp bracket, and the main under carriage along with the smoke box mounted air compressor were painted black.  Surprisingly, the smoke box and smoke stack were also to be painted red, and it looked great on the computer’s 3D document program, and beautiful white structures were painted on the dome centers, and cylinder jackets. The cowcatcher was a beautiful rosette red with dark blood red striping running down the front beams.   The Headlamp had a beautiful painting of the numbers 22 on one side and a painting of ribbon falls on the other side.   The locomotive was now a piece of art; well on the computer it was.

Chris: GUYS! Come check this out.

Juan: Okay, lets take a look; what the?......... WOAH???!!!!!

Katelynn: OMG!!!!!!!!

Alexis: AMAZING!!!!

Lexi: THAT LOOKS GORGEOUS!!!!

Ashley: WOW!!!!

Brittany: WHERE DID YOU COME UP WITH SUCH AMAZING COLORS?

Chris: That part is scaring me; I really don’t know, it just came to mind.

Juan: Well, however it came to you, that is what we must paint the engine.

Chris: I’m not done yet.

Chris then set to work on setting up all 7 coaches for painting, and with quick and thorough thinking, he gave the coaches a similar, but slightly different paint scheme, and each coach had it’s own unique feature.  The Baggage Car had oil rubbed bronze hand rails, the combine had purple pins striping on its wooden panels, one open air car had delicate gold striping near the top of its delicate roof support columns, another had blood red striping on its panels and roof support columns, one passenger coach had beautiful white painted art work, another passenger coach had its green flower arrangement artwork painted on it, and the observation parlor coach had it all.  Oil rubbed bronze hand rails, purple pin striping on the wood panels, delicate gold and blood red striping on the roof support columns, white painted artwork, green flower arrangement art, as well as a green and white striped canvas over the rear observation deck, emerald green observation platform gate, gold brass rear drum plate, olive green bogies with gold striping, and red wheels.   After each coach was painted, Chris assembled the entire train behind the locomotive, and the whole train was good to go.

Chris: I think that about covers it.

Juan: WHAT??!!!!!!!!

Katelynn: I have nothing to say, just WOW!!!!!

Alexis: THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!

Lexi: I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU HAVE THOUGHT OF THAT!!!!!

Ashley: WHERE DID YOU COME UP WITH SUCH BEAUTIFUL COLORS?

Brittany: AND SUCH BEAUTIFUL PATTERNS!!

Juan: I WOULD HAVE NEVER HAVE THOUGHT OF SUCH BRILLIANT COLORS!!!

Chris: This will be very expensive to paint, but this train must be those exact colors, no ands, its, whys, or buts about it.  It has to be those colors.

Juan: What about a whistle and bell?

Chris: The Torchlake has a very sweet sounding bell, and if Greenfield Village allows us to borrow the bell for duplication, we’ll have the perfect sounding bell.  As for a whistle, the Robert Dollar number 3 in Niles Canyon has a perfect sounding whistle.  

Juan: But you and Jonathon Kruger never really….

Chris: Well, you got that right, but if I ask Henry, and get a talented whistle builder to make a duplicate, we should be good to go.

Juan: I still can’t believe you had to alter the throttle design to a rotary type like on Roaring Camp’s Heisler Tuolumne, and Robert Dollar number #3.

Chris: I never could get a feel for a common lever type throttle, where as for a rotary shut off valve type throttle, I feel I have more control over the locomotive and better response.

Juan: Still, you could have learned to improve on a common throttle, rather than jack up the design on which a mason was not meant to have.

Chris: It’s too late, but you’ll get used to it after a while.

Juan: That’s true, and I don’t blame you for altering the throttle design.

Chris: Well the injector piping is literally reaching the ceiling inside the cab, we have 2 clearly marked water glasses, a beautifully large pressure gauge, air brakes of the engine, and the train, emergency fuel oil shut off, and air operated sanders.

Juan: We have one hell of a train.

Chris: We sure do, and I couldn’t have had this done without any of your help.  Even though many outside sources were the reason why had all this done in a short period of time, it was still thanks to you, that we got as far as we have.

Girls: Awwwwwww ☺

Juan: That means a lot Bro.

Chris: We still have the engine, and a whistle and bell to mount on the engine, so no time to lose.

Carpenters then set to work on carefully painting the locomotive and cars.  The name Ten Mile was painted in a beautiful gold in purple highlight on the tender tank of the locomotive, Katelynn and the girls add their cheer sparkle and glitter touch to the paint, and some of the pin stripping, Juan then set to work on getting ahold of Robert Dollar number 3’s whistle for duplication, while I set to work on getting ahold of Torchlake’s bell for duplication.  
The process was long, tedious, and negotiations were not as straight forward as they had hoped, but in the end Chris and Juan managed to get ahold of the whistle and bell, and got pretty darn good duplications, though the bell sounded more tinny than melodic, but it was still beautiful.   Chris then managed to get ahold of brass numbers to mount on the sides of the cab, and polished the locomotive’s beautiful brass star spot plate.   Chris felt very pleased with himself on the locomotive’s out come, and was very excited to firing her up for the very first time.
It wasn’t long until the paint work was finally done, the bell and whistle were mounted on the locomotive, and the beautiful Star number plate was placed back on the front of the smoke box.

Juan: Awesome job Bro.

Katelynn: You were amazing Babe.

Alexis: You really were.

Lexi: I’m so proud of you.

Brittany: As am I.

Ashely: It looks so beautiful.

Alexis: Mom and Dad are gonna be so happy.

Lexi: Yes they will.

Chris: Well, you all head back home and take a good rest, you deserve it.  I still have some unfinished business.  

Katelynn: What’s that Chrissy?

Chris: It’s a surprise.

Alexis: Well, the girls and I are heading home, good night Chrissy.

Juan: C-ya bright and Early.

Lexi: Chris, is it okay if I stay behind?

Chris: Sure thing Lexi, just don’t tell Alexis, Juan, Katelynn or anyone else about this.

Lexi: I promise.

Chris: Well here it goes.

Chris then set to work on carefully installing the brass numbers on the side of the cab, and right above the numbers in the cab side panels Chris painted on beautiful pink lettering saying, Katie Belle.

Lexi: OMG!!!!  CHRISSY!!!! KATELYNN WILL LOVE YOU FOR THAT!!!

Chris: I know you girls wanted pink, and back in the 1800s, many engineers would name the locomotives they were assigned to after someone they loved whether it was their wife’s, sisters, daughters, mothers, grand daughters, or anyone close to their heart.  They would name steam locomotives after someone they loved, and I’m naming this engine after Katelynn.   This engine is very special given that it’s one of only 2 surviving Mason Bogie Engines, but more importantly, Katelynn is a very special girl, in fact, the most special person to me.

Lexi: Awwwwww.  She is such a luck girl to have you.  Alexis and I are really glad that you 2 have hit it off well.

Chris: Thank you Lexi, that means a lot to me.  But also know that you and Alexis are my precious little sisters, and nothing will ever change that.

Lexi: And you’re our big brother, and no one can ever replace you in our hearts.

Chris: Well, now’s the biggy, let’s see if this thing will get up to pressure.

Chris then filled the water tank up with distilled water, filled up the fuel bunker with recycled bio diesel vegetable oil, then lit a fire in the locomotives firebox.   Over the next several hours, the boiler pressure slowly climbed, until finally, the rebuild Mason Bogie, Katie Belle, number #22, was up to full operating pressure of 152 psi.
Chris then grabbed Royal Purple synthetic 10W30 oil, and began oiling the rods through the rod bearing caps, and greasing the locomotive fittings on the Walschert's Valve gear linkage.   It wasn’t long until Juan, Katelynn, Alexis, Brittany, and Ashley arrived.  Katelynn saw her name on the locomotive and cried the moment after she laid eyes on it.

Katelynn: AWWWWWW BABY!!!!!!

Alexis: WOW!!!!

Juan: THIS IS AWESOME BRO!!!

Lexi: I’M VERY PROUD OF YOU!!!

Brittany: THIS IS AMAZING!!!!!

Ashley: IT CERTAINLY IS!!!!

Just then, Mom and Dad arrived.

Mr. & Mrs. Mandez: WOW!!!!! WHO EVER RESTORED OUR TRAIN DID SUCH A BEAUTIFUL JOB!!!!

Chris: It was a team effort.

Mr. Mandez: I’m very proud of you son.

Mrs. Mandez: Just look at all the beautiful paint, and all the colors, who’s design was this?

Girls: Chris did the colors!

Juan: The Colors were all his idea, and if you see the train cars, not one of them is alike.

Mr. Mandez: Well we are so glad we said yes to having our own train.

Mrs. Mandez: That was money well spent.

Mr. Mandez: Well we must get construction work done on the railroad line so we can use our train, and we must build a round house and engine shed on our property so we can safely house our train.

Alexis: We have our own private planes, our own yacht, a few limos, and now we have our own train.

Lexi: Chris and his team were amazing.

Chris: Now here is the real test.

Chris then climb into the cab, released the brakes, gave 2 loud blasts on the whistle, slowly eased the throttle open, and with a might HUFF, PUFF, Katie Belle was rollin.
The warehouse doors then opened, and finally the beautifully rebuild train steamed out on the small temporarily laid piece of track which shed used when she arrived.  Chris then gave one very loud 4 whistle grade crossing whistle blast as Juan happily rang the bell announcing that the old steam engine had finally come back to life, and that steam had finally returned to the town of Ashta.

Aleasha: Well done Chris, your journey begins here and now.  Only time will tell when you and your train are needed to save a magical realm.

After the train made a cameo appearance and mention in The Magical Game Of No Return, the decision has been made to resume this story once The Magical Game Of No Return is complete, but the story will be heavily altered from the original plan and brought up to today.

Chapter 3 will see a transition from old to new, and chapter 4 will introduce brand new main characters who will be replacing our old characters. Chris and Juan will still have their characters, but all other characters will be replaced.

Chapter 3

  Enter McCloud River Number #18


After a couple of months, narrow gauge railroad tracks were finally laid from the warehouse all the way to the Mandez Estate.  The warehouse also had a set of standard gauge track which got dual gauged along with the mainline to allow Little Katie Belle number #22 to go with her train wherever she needed.  Little Number #22 along with her train, was finally ready to return home.  However, our friend Chris, has since quit his job at the old car dealership and had stumbled upon another steam locomotive that was parked in the exact same junk yard where he found Little Number #22.   The locomotive he had found was none other than McCloud River Railroad number #18.  She was a vintage 1914 Baldwin Built Makoto that was made specifically for use in hauling logs and lumber along the McCloud River Railroad in Mount Shasta, California.

Chris: Okay, so first a narrow Gauge Mason Bogie, and now McCloud number #18.  Where are these steam engines coming from?

Chris then walked back into the junkyard, and gave number #18 a thorough look over.  Everything appeared to be mechanically sound.   Chris then took a look inside the cab and spotted all of the boiler certificates and paper work.  What he found was appalling beyond all reason.

Chris: WHAT???!!!!!! THIS ENGINE WAS JUST OVERHAULED A COUPLE MONTHS AGO????!!!!!!!  THE CERFICATE IS GOOD FOR AT LEAST 15 YEARS, SO WHY THROW IT AWAY?????!!!!!!!!!

The junkyard owner then came walking over to Chris.

Junker: So, this engine caught your eye as well I see?

Chris: This engine is in great shape!!! She’s just had an overhaul, has valid paper work, and is mechanically sound.  I mean sure she’s dusty, covered in baked oil, and her wheels look a little rusty, but otherwise she’s in tip top shape.  Why scrap a good engine?

Junker: The new owner being too cheap!!!

Chris: WHAT??!!!

Junker: Yes!!!  Once after the Virginia & Truckee fully overhauled her, she was just about to get her new coat of paint and road name when a wealthy businessman bought her for private use.   He then stored it in his warehouse before he could find a place to house her, but he saw oil, grease and grime all over the floor.   The owner didn’t think much of it, and he also wasn’t too happy about the storage fees.

Chris: It’s a steam locomotive!!! They are supposed to leak lubricating oil and grease on the ground.

Junker: That’s not the half of it.  The owner then saw the bills on how much it would cost to run and maintain the engine.  In the end it was just too much money, so he took it here, and threw it away.   Now it’s just sitting in my junkyard taking up space.  It’ll cost me money I don’t have to scrap it, so it’ll continue sitting here.  That is unless you want it.  

Chris then heard the voice again!!!!

Aleasha: Buy this engine as well, for she too is a key to leading you to a new world.

Chris: I guess I’ll buy it.   Now I must call Juan so we can get ahold of fuel and water to run her out of here.

Chris then makes a call to Juan to fetch Katie Belle number #22 along with a tank car and fuel car to steam the massive Makoto out of the junkyard.

Juan: Hello, this Juan Igar Here!!!

Chris: Hey Juan, it’s me.

Juan: Hey Bro, what’s up?

Chris: I just bought the former McCloud River Railroad number #18 Makato from the junkyard.  The engine is in mechanically sound shape, and is completely legal to operated.  For that I need you to bring Katie Belle over on the dual gauge mainline tracks that run by here.   We have a standard gauge oil and water car in our shop that we bought about a month ago…

Juan: Yes?

Chris: Is Katie Belle fully steamed up and ready to go?

Juan: Yes she is.  Our crew have her ready to go and set off for home.

Chris: Okay, so I need you to hook up Katie Belle to the oil and water car, and bring them over.  I will then need you to couple them up to our Makoto so we can fire her up and run her out of here.

Juan: Okay, I think I can do that……..

Chris: You seem unsure.

Juan: Chris, this is another impulse buy, and I don’t think your family will be too happy about this.  It was one thing with Katie Belle given that she’s a small engine, but McCloud 18 is a monster.   The cost to running and maintaining Katie Belle is chunk change to the McCloud, not to mention your estate only has room for Katie Belle and her train.

Chris: That’s not a problem.  We’ll keep the McCloud 18 at the warehouse machine shop for the time being until we can build her a proper facility.

Juan: If you say so……

Chris: Keep the McCloud 18 a secret from everyone until they are fully satisfied with our train or Memorial Day Weekend.  
In the mean time, I need a lot of steam oil, and hard grease to get this engine moving again.   It’ll take hours to get us out of here.   Since it’s 1:00 p.m. now, it won’t be until 6:00 when we’ll be ready to go.

Juan: You know that Katie Belle doesn’t use grease, so therefor we don’t have any.

Chris: Well that’s a bummer.  Looks like we’ll have to run the 18 back to the warehouse with dry rod bearings.   Just be sure to bring the valve oil and hoses.

Juan: I’ll bring what we have available to use, and will be there as soon as I can.
By the way, you may want to Katelynn what’s going on.

Chris: I haven’t heard from her in a long time.  2 months and no phone call, respond to emails or pms on Facebook.  Besides my sisters told me that she doesn’t talk to them anymore.

Juan: That sucks Bro.

Chris: Tell me about it.  I miss her, but I know that I must move on.  Anyways, it’s still best to keep number #18 our secret.

Juan: I understand and will be over soon.   Engineers Big Joe and Robert will be over to help us out.

Chris: Thanks man.

Juan: No problem.

Chris then paid the junkyard owner his dollar, and a few minutes later, Juan came steaming in on Katie Belle with Big Joe, Robert, and a few more of the locomotive crew.

Juan: Okay, I’ve got the stuff, so lets get to work.

Chris: Alrighty, sounds good to me.

Chris and Juan set to work on backing up Katie Belle along with her 2 tank cars onto number 18 before hooking up the hoses and filling up McCloud number #18’s tanks with recycled vegetable oil and water.
Chris and Juan then fill up number #18’s boiler, light a fire in her firebox, and oil up all of her valves, cylinders, and mechanical lubricator.
Big Joe and Robert then take over the process of firing up number #18 along with the rest of the steam crew.

Big Joe: Robert and I will take over the operation.

Chris: Alrighty Joe.  I’ll detach Katie Belle from the 2 tankers.

Big Joe: Alright, sounds good.

Chris then climbs into Katie Belle’s cab, while Juan shuts off the air brake valves on the tank car and Katie Belle’s brake hoses and pulls up on Katie Belle’s coupler lift bar.  Chris then gives 2 blasts on the whistle, throws the Johnson bar forward, releases her engine brake, eases the throttle open and with a loud……

POP-BANG!!!!!!!

Katie Belle was detached from the tank cars.  Chris then instantly threw on Katie Belle’s engine brake and stopped her after a few yards of detaching before climbing out of her cab.

Chris: Alrighty, now all we can do is wait for pressure to build up.

Juan: Yep.

Chris: Now that I think about it, we should get ahold of a caboose, a flat car, a gondola, and a couple boxcars.  We do have the room for them in our warehouse, and we need a freight train to handle goods work, and move things around for when my family needs it.

Juan: That is a good point, and there are lots of old railroad cars here.

Junker: Have at it; we have flat cars, boxcars, hopper cars, gondolas, and a few cabooses.  All a dollar each given that I don’t have the money to cut them up for scrap.

Chris: Okay, Thanks.

The junkyard owner then walked up to Katie Belle and had a good look at her.

Junker: IS THAT THE SCRAP ENGINE I HAD IN HERE MONTHS AGO??!!!!!

Chris: Yes it is, and now she is operational.  Not much of the original is left on her, but she does run great.  The firebox bricking could have been better, and her firebox is a little small, but otherwise she’s a great running engine.

Juan: Yeah, she steams great, fires great, and runs great.

Chris: Yep, and we’re quite thrilled with her.

Junker: Had I known she’d turn out this beautiful I would have charged you more for it, but hey, it must have cost you a good penny shine her up this good.

Chris: That’s an understatement. LOL!!!

Junker: Anyway, have a good look around, and pick out what you find that looks good.

Chris: Alright; will do.

Chris and Juan then get a good look around, and they find a nice large rusty brown steel boxcar along with a wooden refrigerator car.

Chris: This boxcar is rusty, but we can sand it and repaint it to look like a beautiful boxcar.  

Juan: It was from the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railway from the old lettering underneath all of this rust.

Chris: And the refrigerator car with all of its rotten wood seems to be from the old Denver & Rio Grande Western’s standard gauge line.

Juan: Shall we take these 2 cars then?

Chris: Sounds good, and we’ll have our carpenters set to work on them right away.

Juan: Awesome, so lets couple Katie Belle onto them and back them onto the 18 and her tank cars.

Chris: Alrighty.

Chris and Juan then hop into Katie Belle’s cab, and they soon make their way to the boxcars, and back the little engine onto them.

Chris: A narrow gauge engine switching out standard gauge cars. LOL!!!!  Hasn’t happened in decades.

Juan: I know!!!! It’s pretty awesome.

Chris and Juan then hook up Katie Belle onto the boxcars, and pull them out of their spot.   Katie Belle then runs around with the 2 cars, crosses over a couple switches, and soon backs the boxcars behind McCloud Number #18 and the tank cars.

Juan: Hey!!!! Now it’s starting to look like an actual train.

Chris: Yep, and lets not stop there, we have more to get.

Chris and Juan then move Katie Belle back and forth throughout the junkyard as she moves various cars about.   They soon tow back a hopper car, then a flat car, then both a low side and high side gondola, then a stock cattle car, and another boxcar.  This shuffling went on and on and on until one by one, all of the cars they wanted were hooked up behind McCloud number #18.

Chris: Alright!!! We pretty much have everything we need.  Now just one car lies.

Juan: Yep, and one car only.

Chris & Juan: A caboose!!!

Chris and Juan then take Katie Belle around the junkyard, and they search high and low for the right caboose.  They then come across a very old and run down Southern Pacific Lines long caboose with terrible wood rot, but they knew that it was the perfect caboose for their train.

Chris: This caboose is at least 100 years old!!!!

Juan: Yeah, and given that it’s an old wooden caboose, it has to have more of a historical value than the other cabooses her.

Chris: Yep, so we’ll take this one!!!

Chris and Juan then back Katie Belle onto the old caboose, and haul it away.   They then run around the junkyard and back it onto the back of McCloud number #18’s train.  And with that, their freight train was ready to home to the warehouse to begin restoration.

Chris: Alright, now we’ll oil up the journal boxes on the old cars that have them, and we’ll wait for number #18 to build up pressure.

Juan: Sounds like a good plan.

Chris and Juan then go around oiling up all of the journal boxes on the freight cars while McCloud number #18 continued to build up pressure.
Chris then pays the junkyard owner the money, and a few hours later at 4:30 p.m. sharp, McCloud Number #18’s safety valve pops signaling that she was ready to go.

Big Joe: Alright!!! Robert, turn on the air compressor.

Robert: You got it!!!!

Robert then turned on McCloud 18’s dual cross compound air compressor and with a mighty and loud…………..

BANG……..BANG…….BANG…….BANG……BANG……BANG…….BANG……BANG…..BANG..BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG!!!!

Number #18 was ready to go.

Chris and Juan then hooked up all of the brake hoses and safety chains before hopping into Katie Belle’s cab.

Juan rang the bell and opened up the atomizer and firing valve while Chris gave 2 blasts on the whistle, eased the throttle open, and Katie Belle slowly moved away from the massive freight train.
Robert opened up the firing valve and atomizer all the way and rang the bell while Big Joe gave 3 blasts on the whistle, threw the Johnson bar in reverse, released the brakes, eased the throttle open and with a mighty and thunderous……

CHUFF…………..CHUG……………CHUG……………CHUG………………….CHUFF…………….. CHUFF………………CHUFF……….CHUFF……….CHUFF……..CHUFF……..CHUFF…..CHUFF…..CHUFF-CHUFF CHUFF-CHUFF, CHUFF-CHUFF CHUFF-CHUFF, CHUFF-CHUFF CHUFF-CHUFF!!!!!!!!!

McCloud Number #18 and her freight train were then backing out of the junk yard until they were ready to switch onto the main line and follow Katie Belle back to the ware house.
Big Joe then applied the brakes and stopped the massive freight train while Juan climbed out of Katie Belle’s cab and threw the switch.  Juan then climbed back into the cab and both Juan and Robert rang their bells as Chris and Big Joe gave 2 blasts on their whistles, released their brakes, eased the throttles open, and together the 2 engines were rolling.
Little Katie Belle went flying along the mainline with hardly any chug to her given that she had no load to pull while the mighty Baldwin Makoto huffed and puffed thundering down the mainline with her old freight train.  
As the 2 engines ran through the downtown area of Ashta, many people on the sidewalk got out their cell phones, cameras, and video recorders while the 2 engines made their way.

Chris: Okay, now we have to deal with railfans and foamers!!!! LOL!!!!

Juan: How typical!!!! LOL!!!!!

As the 2 engines come to a crossing, both Juan and Robert ring the bells while Chris and Big Joe tug on the whistle chords with a………….

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 2 beautiful bells and 5-chime whistles echo throughout the town as the 2 engines make their way back to the warehouse.  Not long after, both Katie Belle and McCloud 18 arrive at the warehouse as the massive roll up doors open.
Katie Belle is then gently backed onto her passenger train while the mighty McCloud 18 hauls her massive freight train in nose first from the other end and eases to a full and complete stop.
The 2 engines are then side by side with their trains, huffing and puffing with clouds of smoke and steam filling up the bays of the warehouse.

Chris: This is definitely something we have to photograph!!!!

Juan: DEFINITELY!!!!

Big Joe: I’M WITH YOU GUYS!!!!!

Everyone then shoots off their cameras and cellphones as they photograph and video record the 2 engines side by side.

Chris: We shall take Katie Belle back to the estate after a good polish.  That way she is clear of all dirt, dust, and debris.  My parents are out of town and over seas once again, so they won’t need to know.  My sisters, I can trick and convince them that I work for a company known as the Mandez Machine Works.

Juan: Mandez Machine Works………….

Chris: That’s what we’ll name this warehouse!!!!!!!  The Mandez Machine Works, and it’s where we run, maintain, and overhaul our trains.

Juan: I like the sound of that.

Big Joe: Me too!!!

Robert: I’m in!!!!

Just then a guy named Mike Anotal walks up to the warehouse and is completely blown away by what he sees.

Mike: HOLY SHIT!!!!!! THERE ARE ACTUALLY STEAM TRAINS HERE???????!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: Yes, and we have 2 of them.  One of which has been fully restored here, and the other one is beginning restoration here tomorrow.

Mike: AWESOME!!!!!

Juan: I know!!!!

Big Joe: Who is that?

Robert: That’s what I’d like to know.

Chris: I take it that you love trains.

Mike: HELL YEAH MAN!!!!

Chris: Awesome!!!!!  Welcome!!! If you’d like to join us, your more than welcome to join us, and become part of the team.

Mike: SWEET!!!!

Just then 2 more guys named Aaron & Alex join in and are blown away by the steam engines.

Aaron: AWESOME!!!!!!

Alex: YOUR STEAM ENGINES ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Chris: They sure are!!!!

Juan: Looks like we have 2 more joining.

Robert: Hey the more the merrier.

Just then 2 little girls around 12 and ½ years of age named Nina Yamada and Wendy Marvell walk up to the large doors and get blown away.

Nina: WOW!!!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!

Wendy: SAME HERE!!!!!! THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Chris: I know, so it looks like we have a total of 3 new recruits for The Mandez Machine Works.

Juan: Yep!!!! It looks like it.

Mike: You may want to recount your recruitment numbers.

Chris: Why do you say that?

Mike: Well, 2 girls here look like they want to join.

Aaron: And it’s not my brother Alex and me.

Alex: Nope!!!!

Chris: Are you kidding me??!!!!! The Mandez Machine Works is no place for kids.

Nina: WHAT????!!!!!!!!! KIDS!!!!!!!!!! I AM NOT A KID!!!!!!!!!!! I AM IN THE 7TH GRADE FOR YOUR INFORMATION AND ALMOST 13!!!!!!!!!!

Wendy: NINA????!!!!!!!!!!

Nina: DON’T BE TOO NICE WENDY MARVELL, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO JOIN AS WELL!!!!!!! I MEAN, AREN’T YOU CURIOUS AS WELL???!!!!!

Wendy: Yeah, but like you, I’ve never seen these things before, and they do look dangerous.

Chris: Sorry for what I said, but, steam locomotives are very dangerous entities.  As beautiful and human like as they are, these things are pressurized vessels with personalities.   They are very unpredictable, and if you’re not careful, these things can blow up in the blink of an eye if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Big Joe: Christian, it’s okay.  As long as they’re under our supervision, I don’t see why they can’t join our facility.

Robert: Yeah, I’m sure we can find other things for these girls to do.  Besides, The Mandez Machine Works is just getting started and we’ll need all the help we can get.

Nina: I know I am very young, but I am very responsible, and there is so much I would like to know.  Besides, I’ve never even seen one of these in my life.  

Wendy: Yeah, we’ve only seen them in movies, books, and pictures.  This is our first time ever seeing an actual steam train, and both Nina and I are very curious.  We promise to listen to you and your friends when it comes to anything that can compromise our safety.

Big Joe: That sounds good enough to let them join, and we do need more girls involved with steam railroading.

Chris: But we only have a limited number of those FRA certified, and you have to be at least 18 years of age to get a license to fire over public roads.  So far only you Joe, Robert, Juan, Tom, Doug, Steven, Jack Anderson, Jack Verdi, and myself are the only ones who are FRA certified and licensed to fire and operate steam locomotives over public roads.  Though Juan and I don’t have as much experience under our belts as you guys do.

Big Joe: True, but we all need to start off somewhere.

Robert: And these girls seem like real sweethearts, so we should at least give them a fair chance.

Nina & Wendy: AWWWWWW!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!

Chris: And now that I think about it, one of the girls does look exactly like Nina from Mamotte Lollipop, and the other looks exactly like Wendy Marvell from Fairy Tail.  To top it off both girls sound exactly like their voice actress Brittany Karbowski, so it shouldn’t be just coincidence.

Juan: You also do have anime crushes on those girls.

Chris: *BLUSHES BRIGHT RED*  HEY NOT SO LOUD!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: *GIGGLES*

Juan: Need I also remind you that you bought the former McCloud River Railroad number #18 and an entire freight train without your parents consent.  You also plan on hiding from them the fact you bought a second train in the first place, so I’d say you’re the only one whose really breaking any rules.

Chris: But it was my money I spent on both trains, and they only cost me a total of $13 US dollars.

Juan: But that was just to buy them.   Your parents paid the millions of dollars to restore Katie Belle and her passenger train, and will be sent the bills for the restoration on the freight cars.  So hiring minors should be the least of your worries.

Chris: Your point being?

Juan: That it won’t hurt you to hire these 2 girls, and as long as we keep supervision on them, there shouldn’t be a problem.

Chris: I guess you’re right, so it looks like we have 5 people to recruit.

Nina & Wendy: YAY!!!!!!!!!

Mike: SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron & Alex: AWESOME!!!!!!!

Chris & Juan: Welcome aboard you guys!!!!

Chris: My name is Christian Allen Mandez of the new Mandez Machine Works, but you can call me Chris, and I’m 24 and ½ years old.

Mike: Sweet!!!! I’m Michael Anotal, but you can call me Mike, and I’m 27.

Aaron: Hi I’m Aaron and I’m 19.

Alex: I’m Alex and I’m 21.

Nina: Hi, I’m Nina Yamada, I’m in the 7th grade, and I’m 12 and ½.

Wendy: My name is Wendy Marvell, and I’m also 12 and ½.  I’m really exciting to be working with you and I really hope we can be great friends.

Chris: It’s nice to meet you all.

Juan: My name is Juan.

Big Joe: And I’m Joseph but everyone calls me Big Joe.

Chris: I call him the Famous Joe Jackson!!!

Big Joe: LOL!!!!! HAAAA HAAAAA HAAAAAA!!!!! VERY FUNNY!!!!!

Robert: And I’m Train Wreck Robert. LOL!!!!

Chris: Welcome aboard, and we all look forward to working with you.  I will have those who are 18 and older fill out applications while you girls will be paid under the table to avoid lawsuits and liability issues.   The starting pay is $13 per hour, and I’ll have the guys start out as hostlers and the girls will be apprentices or paid interns.   We’ll start you all off on full time, and there won’t be a probationary period given that we’re really too small of an organization for one, and we’re non-union.  Also the only way to get fired is to either kill someone, steal from someone, cause a boiler and/or cylinder explosion, or do a hit and run while out on the road.  In other words, the only way to leave here is to quit at your own will.

Juan: Yeah, so the main rules on boiler or cylinder explosions and hit and runs out on the line really only apply to engineers and firemen, and we’d like you guys to learn from the bottom as hostlers before becoming apprentice firemen, and then certified firemen.  From then once you’re 21, you can become a student engineer, then become a certified engineer.

Big Joe: And don’t be ashamed to ask for help when you need it.

Robert: All first timers need to learn, and we all make mistakes.  The key is to also learn from your mistakes, and that’s how you get better.

Chris: Yep, and sometimes the only way to learn is to make mistakes.  So if you strip bolts, or a bearing cap on a rod; don’t be afraid to tell us, and we will fix the problem right away.  

Juan: Tomorrow our carpenters will set to work on restoring our freight cars, and our steam crew will set to work on cleaning and repainting McCloud number #18.  There you can learn on how we do restoration work.

Chris: We’ll start you all off easy and have you just absorbing things.   You can then get involved with helping out in painting and polishing, and then we’ll get you guys involved with the dirty oiling and greasing.  Everyone is fair game, and you all may want to bring a change of clothes in case some things get dirty.   Don’t worry about boiler work, or major parts and components removal, we have FRA certified and licensed contractors to take care of that.  

Big Joe: Just arrive here when you can, and leave when you have to.  

Robert: You’ll just write down the number of hours you were here and you’ll get paid by the number of hours.

Chris: Yep, so tomorrow will be an easy day for all of us, so you all go home and get a good night sleep, and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Big Joe: But if you’d like, we’ll bottle up the McCloud 18 for the night if you want to watch.

Robert: Yeah, you’re more than welcome to see how it’s done.

Chris: And then we’ll polish up Katie Belle, before we take her home to my estate.

Big Joe, Robert, Juan, and Chris then go over to McCloud number #18, drop down safety chains by her drive wheels, close up all of her branch pipes, shut off her air compressor, shut off all valves, dampen down her fire, and bottle her up for the night.
They then go over to Katie Belle, clean her up, and give her a good polish until she is ready to set off for home.

Chris: Alrighty everyone.  Have a good night, and we’ll see you tomorrow.

Chris and Juan then climb into Katie Belles cab; Juan rings the bell while Chris gives 2 blasts on the whistle, releases the brakes, eases the throttle open, and Katie Belle and her beautifully restored passenger train were rolling.
Mike, Aaron, Alex, Nina, and Wendy then stepped out of the warehouse to watch Katie Belle gracefully steam out and set off for home.  Shortly after the last of Katie Belle’s train steamed out of the warehouse, the shop crew then closed the massive bay doors, while Big Joe, and Robert got in their cars and drove off.
Mike, Aaron, Alex, Nina, and Wendy were all in awe as the beautiful train steamed off into the sunset as she steamed away.  They then followed her until they all went their own separate ways home.
More and more people on the sidewalks got out their cellphones, cameras, and video recorders as Katie Belle made her way through Ashta.  Juan had to keep ringing the bell constantly while Chris was constantly yanking the whistle chord to keep people and cars away from the on coming train until finally, Katie Belle was out of site, and steamed into a tunnel leading back to the Mandez estate.

Juan: Today was a good day.

Chris: Got that right, and we got ourselves a beautiful second train.

Juan: Yep, though I still think you should have informed your parents about it, and they should know about the employees.

Chris: I know, and I will tell them when the time is right.

But little did Chris know that the day he would have to tell his parents would never come, for a tragic fate lay ahead.

Chapter 4

An Unfortunate Turn

Carpenters worked around the clock on sandblasting and repainting the old freight cars, as well as replacing the old rotten wood with beautiful new wood. McCloud 18 was also getting all the dirty grease and grime off of her, and getting a brand new fresh coat of paint. All was going well with restoration on the new train, and the new hires were getting a good idea on just what it took to restore old trains. All seemed like it was going well.

Chris: Alrighty, seems like everything is going well. I’m sorry that we’re not using our engines at the moment. We have too much crew and not enough locomotives.

Mike: Hey man, no worries.

Nina: Yeah, it’s okay.

Wendy: We’re already learning a lot.

Alex: But I get your point, it would be fun with more engines.

Juan: We may find more at the old junk yard.

Chris: Since I’m hiding the acquiring of the former McCloud River Railroad number #18, a couple more won’t hurt; especially if we get a good variety.

Chris, Juan, and the rest of the gang head out to the junkyard, and they get a hold of both Former Union Pacific 0-6-0 number #4466, and the former Graham County Railroad Company number #1925 70 ton 3-truck shay engine as well as 5 gravel side dump cars. With 2 more engines and a few more freight cars to restore, the Mandez Machine Works soon became more lively.

Chris: Now we have a good number of locomotives. McCloud 18 just needs cosmetic work, where as both the 4466 and 1925 need 15 year overhauls and get converted from coal fired to oil, and it’ll be at least $1.2 Million an engine and will take till Memorial day with all hands on deck.

Juan: THAT IS ONLY A MONTH AWAY!!!!!! WE CAN’T GET THEM DONE IN A MONTH!!!!!

Chris: The Roaring Camp Railroad in Felton did a full overhaul which included removal and reinstallation of a boiler and firebox on their former Westside Lumber Company Shay number #7, the Sonora, in under 2 and ½ months. And they had a much smaller crew than we do. Not to mention neither of the engines need their boilers removed, just new tube sheets, ultra-sounds, and inspections. I know both will probably need firebox patch work, but we can do it.

Juan: Then there is no time to lose, and we must begin work right away.

Chris: Alex, Mike, and Aaron, this will be your new assignment, helping out in the restoration of these 2 engines. It will be hard, it will be dirty, but I know we can do it.

Mike: Awesome Man!!!!

Aaron: We’re getting our hands dirty right off the bat.

Alex: We are gonna learn a hell of a lot more from here onwards.

Chris: As for you Nina and Wendy, your jobs will be to assess and take inventory of the parts we have removed. I am also going to be trusting you on whether or not we can save some components or if we’re better off replacing them, and I will teach you how to inspect the components.

Nina & Wendy: Great!!!!

Chris: So, onwards and upwards.

Chris, Juan, all of their friends, and the rest of the restoration team set to work on tearing down the Union Pacific number #4466 and the Graham County number #1925. All tubes were soon taken out of both engines, both boiler jackets and external components were removed along with all of the exterior piping, and the shay’s cylinder engine set was removed.
As days went on, work continued on the locomotives. McCloud 18 was almost ready to go with her new paint work almost done, but all was not well in Chris’s personal life. Chris’s little sister Lexi was getting suspicious.

Lexi: Chris, can I talk to you for a minute?

Chris: Okay, sure.

Lexi: I’ve been noticing that you’ve been out a lot, and a lot more than you usually were, so please tell me what’s going on.

Chris: Okay. I will tell you if you won’t tell Alexis or Katelynn.

Lexi: Okay, I promise not to tell Alexis, but Katelynn and I haven’t talked in weeks and I don’t know what’s going on with her. Alexis might know, but I honestly have no idea. I think you should talk to her if you can, but I honestly don’t think your relationship with her is gonna last any longer. Now please tell me what’s going on.

Chris: The Mandez Machine Works has gotten more projects.

Lexi: WAIT, WHAT??!!!!

Chris: I guess you don’t know what the Mandez Machine Works is. It all started when I acquired the former McCloud River Railroad number #18. A Baldwin built 2-8-2 Makoto that was built in 1914 for us on the McCloud River Railroad in Shasta, California. After the railroad shut down in 2007, she was sold to the Virginia & Truckee in Carson City. She was then given a thorough overhaul, and was bought by a private businessman. The new owner didn’t like the cost and work involved in running and maintaining the engine, so he threw her away and she wound up in the scrap yard. I saw that she was in great shape, with all the legal documents, so I bought her. Juan and I then acquired other pieces of railroad equipment such as old freight cars and a caboose. We then acquired former Union Pacific number #4466 and Graham County number #1925, which had the same story as McCloud 18. Union Pacific 4466 was bought from the California State Railroad Museum and 1925 was bought from the North Caroline Transportation Museum by supposedly the same owner who bought McCloud 18. He thought they’d be easy fixes until he saw that it was too much money to fix them, so he threw them out. Juan and I have began the process of restoring the engines back to steam, and that’s why I’ve been out a lot.

Lexi: And Mom & Dad don’t know about this?

Chris: No they don’t, and I didn’t want you or Alexis to know about it given that you 2 tattle tail a lot, and I didn’t want to worry you girls. I was planning on telling you guys when the McCloud 18 had her new coat of paint and all the freight cars were finished. Then with the acquiring of the 4466 and 1925 along with gravel cars, and getting them done by Memorial Day, I thought it would be more convincing. Besides you know how much money I have been granted, and I’m paying for it all.

Lexi: WOW!!!!! I don’t know whether to scold you or commend you on this, but I promise not to tell Alexis or Mom & Dad. Your secret is safe with me, but please keep me updated on everything.

Chris: I promise.

Lexi: Thank you!!!! Also just to let you know, my friend Chrissy from cheerleading and her little sister Lilly are coming over for the night and I would like for you to get to know them. They’re really sweet, and I think you might like Chrissy. She’s a lot like you in so many ways.

Chris: Lexi, are you trying to hook me up with another girl when Katelynn and I haven’t even broken up yet?

Lexi: Well, I honestly think you 2 would be happy together. Her ex boyfriend cheated on her and broke her heart, and she’s had nothing but lousy luck with boys. You on the other hand lost a fiancé in a car crash, and had an ex who also cheated on you. Not to mention you and Katelynn hardly speak to each other anymore, and I care about both of you.

Chris: Thanks, but please don’t rush me.

Lexi: I know, but it’s that I told Chrissy a lot about you, and she’s been wanting to meet you for such a long time.

Chris: GREAT!!!!!! If it’s not one thing, it’s another.

Lexi: *Giggles* Hey, it can’t be helped that I have a handsome brother.

Chris: Okay Lil Sis, don’t get too creepy on me!!!

Lexi: AWWWWWWWW, YOU’RE NO FUN!!!!!!

Just then the doorbell rang.

Lexi: That’s probably her!!!! Wait until you meet her, she’s really beautiful, and VERY sweet.

Chris: I heard you SIS!!!!

Chris and Lexi then answer the door, and low and behold it was Chrissy and her little sister Lilly.

Lexi: Hey Chrissy!!!!! Hey Lilly!!!!

Chrissy & Lilly: HEY!!!!!!

Lexi: Girl’s this is my brother Chris, but I often call him Chrissy as well.

Chris: Best not to so we don’t have any confusion. LOL!!! Anyway, it’s nice to meet you girls. The name is Christian Allen Mandez, but you can call me Chris or Chrissy; whichever you feel more comfortable calling me.

Chrissy: It’s nice to meet you. I’m Christina Nicole Granger, but I hate being called Christina, so please call me Chrissy.

Lilly: And I’m Lillian Natalie Granger, but call me Lilly.

Chris: Will do girls.

Just then, Chris’s cell phone rang, and it was Juan.

Juan: Chris, we have a problem here.

Chris: What’s up?

Juan: The installation of the Mapo on Shay 1925 has gone well, but McCloud 18 and UP 4466, it’s turning out to be a lot harder than anticipated.

Chris: How so? You just install the solenoids below the high pressure safety valves and water level sensors, and place the mapo boxes in the cabs and you’re good to go.

Juan: That is the issue!!! Katie Belle was in pieces when we installed her mapo and it was installed on a new boiler and firebox, and given that the boiler was off the frame, made access to the firebox much easier. Also shay number 1925 is well, a shay which has a fairly exposed firebox area, so installation was easy. Where as the Makoto and 0-6-0 switcher have fireboxes that are harder to reach.

Chris: I’ll be right over and take care of it.

Lexi: WHAT??!!!!!!

Chris: Sorry, I gotta go. The steam crew is having problems installing the mapos on 2 of our engines.

Chrissy: What’s a Mapo?

Lexi: Don’t ask, it’s complicated.

Chris: A mapo is an automatic emergency fuel shut off that we use on our steam locomotives. We own 4 steam locomotives, and 2 of which are operational, however, only our small narrow gauge Mason Bogie is fully equipped with an operating mapo. Now what a Mapo does, is it shuts off the fuel oil supply to the firebox, puts out our fire, and shuts off the engine if the water level drops too low or if the high pressure safety valves pop. We own authentic steam locomotives, but we are giving them the safety features of the 21st century to make them as fail safe as possible.

Lilly: WOW!!!! THAT IS AMAZING!!!!

Chris: We are also fitting electronic ignition to the locomotives, where you just press a button like on a butane lighter, the fire will ignite, and you just open the firing valve and atomizer, and you’re fire is lit and good to go.

Chrissy: THAT IS AWESOME!!!!

Chris: It is. Katie Belle was retrofitted with one right after we got her in service.

Chris then receives another call from Juan.

Juan: Hey Chris, never mind, we managed to install the mapo sensors on the 18 and 4466 no problem. No the issue lies in the electronic ignition.

Chris: GUYS!!!!! If you can figure out the Mapo hook up, you can most definitely figure out the electronic ignition!!!!

Big Joe: YEAH, YOU TELL EM CHRISTIAN!!!!!

Lexi: Who was that Chrissy?

Chrissy: I don’t know Lexi!!!

Chris: Again Lil Sis, you shouldn’t be using that on me or you’ll confuse us both. As for who that was, that was Big Joe, but I call him The Famous Joe Jackson!!!

Big Joe: LOL!!!!! HAAAAA HAAAAA HAAAAAA!!!!! VERY FUNNY!!!!!!! I HEARD THAT!!!!!

Chris: Are you guys on speaker phone??!!!

Nina: Yes we are Chris!!!

Lilly: Who was that??!!!

Chris: That was either Nina or Wendy. They’re our 2 paid interns, but given that they’re under legal age, I pay them under the table to avoid liability issues.

Chrissy: That does make sense.

Lexi: WHAT??!!!! Okay, first you aquire new equipment, and now you hire 2 under aged girls??!!!!

Chris: I also hired a 27-year-old guy, along with a 19 and 21-year-old, and they’re legally employed

Lexi: That is not the issue!!! Again, that is more stuff behind Mom & Dad’s back Chris!!!!

Chris: Hey, we need all the help we can get.

Lexi: Still, you should have informed Mom and Dad about this.

Chrissy: Hey, go easy on him Lexi. He knows what he’s doing.

Lexi: But he’s using our parents money on this stuff, and it’s not okay.

Juan: Hey Lexi, you know we can hear everything you’re saying right??!!!

Lexi: *BLUSHES BRIGHT RED* SORRY!!!!!

Juan: Don’t worry about it, and I agree with you on that level, but again, you guys do need this equipment.

Chris: We do need a freight train, a maintenance train, and a switch engine, and these pieces of equipment fit the bill. Katie Belle is the family’s designated passenger hauler, while McCloud 18 is the designated freight hauler for long distances, and UP 4466 & Graham County 1925 can take turns with maintenance works and short hauls as well as moving things about around the shop. The Shay can’t go faster than 15 miles per hour, and if you run an 0-6-0 switcher too fast, the ride is bumpy as hell, so short hops are perfect for those 2 while 18 handles the big jobs.

Juan: Yep, I totally agree. Also, our steam crew just managed to install the electronic ignition on all 3 engines, so with the ultra sound taking place tomorrow, we can hopefully have the tubes installed on the shay and 0-6-0 within the next couple weeks. This will be a VERY tight finish line.

Chris: It took us only 2 months to do Katie Belle and she was literally a complete ground up rebuild, so we should have no problem.

Juan: I hope you’re right.

Chrissy: WOW!!!! Chris really knows his stuff.

Lexi: I know. He and Juan are such huge train lovers, though it drives my older sister Alexis crazy.

Chrissy: Speaking of which, where is she?

Lexi: She’s out on a date with her boyfriend Ralph, and will be staying the night at his place.

Nina & Wendy: Once again, thank you so much for this Chris. We’re really learning a lot, and we enjoy watching what’s going on. The 1925 is especially really amazing!!!

Chris: Of course!!! And wait until you see the 1925 in action when she’s done. That engine will blow your skirts up because just watching the movement of the line shaft and engine set go as well as hearing the bark of the exhaust is like that of no other engine.

Big Joe: We’re really excited about getting these engines back in service, and the McCloud 18 looks amazing!!!

Robert: But we plan on firing all 3 up on the same day.

Chris: That sounds like a good plan, and we’ll run them like no tomorrow.

Just then Lexi got a phone call on her cell and it was the parents of her boyfriend Brandon.

Lexi: WHAT???!!!! OMG!!!! OMG!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!! HOW CAN THIS BE???!!!!!!!

Chris: Guys, I’ll have to call you back, this is really important.

Chris then gets off the phone when he watches Lexi drops her cell phone and breaks down in tears.

Chris: Lil Sis, what’s wrong?

Chrissy: What happened Lexi???

Lexi: Brandon was arrested for an outburst in a bar as well as under aged drinking…….

Chris: WHAT??!!!!

Lexi: It gets worse, because he was involved in a fight, and many say he started it, if he is found guilty, he may have to face a year and ½ in prison. A YEAR AND ½!!!!!!!! WHAT DO I DO???!!!!!

Lexi then wraps her arms around Chris and cries her eyes out.

Chris: Lexi, it maybe time for you to move on if he’s going to be in prison for that long. I know how much you love him, but also know that you are just 17, and that you’re still young. You have lots of time to look, and given that he is behind bars for a while worst case comes to worst, you may have to may have to just remain friends and go your own separate ways. I know Katelynn and I will need to break up, and we’ll have to go our separate ways, and it looks you and Brandon will have to as well.

Lexi: You’re right Chris…………

Chrissy: I’m always here for you Lexi, whenever you need me.

Lilly: Me too.

Chris then called Juan back on his phone.

Chris: Juan, I can’t come in today due to an emergency, and since it’s 4:30 right now, you guys can wrap things up and go home for the day. I need to stay with my sister Lexi.

Juan: It’s okay, I understand, just take care of her.

Chris: Will do.

Chris then hangs up the phone, and continues to hold Lexi close to him.

Lexi: CHRIS……..WHY DOES IT HURT SO MUCH???!!!!!

Chris: I wish knew Sis………….

Chrissy: Same here. It’s why I haven’t dated in months.

Lilly: And I never had a boyfriend.

Chris: There are just some things that just can’t be explained.

Chrissy: Not to change the subject, but is it okay if I ask you something Chris?

Chris: Sure.

Chrissy: Do you and your family get along well?

Chris: That is questionable. The thing is my Dad and I do fight a lot given our opposite personalities, then again my Mom and I fight a lot given that we are too much alike, and Alexis and I fight a lot also given our different personalities, and Lexi and I hardly talk to each other given that she and Alexis are so close. I felt like the odd one out, even though I am the oldest sibling.

Chrissy: I understand. My parents and I are close, but we still have our differences. Have you guys ever taken the time to really get to know each other.

Chris: We have tried, but it never really works out in the end. We always end up fighting, stating how who should be more like who, and for the stupidest reasons. It never goes anywhere, and nothing good ever comes out of it.

Chrissy: I’m sorry, you seem really sweet, and it’s no wonder that your sister Lexi talks endlessly about you. She really looks up to you, and wishes that you 2 would be closer.

Chris: Thanks, and I really do care for her. She has no idea how much I worry about her, and how I wish I could have been there for her more than I have been.

Chrissy: It’s never too late Chris. Maybe you 2 can be closer starting now. She needs you now more than ever. As for me, I’d like to get to know you and become your friend. From what I understand, your relationship with your girlfriend is going downhill, and in the past your relationships haven’t gone too well. Also I have lousy luck with boys.

Chris: Lexi told me about that, but it is true that my luck with girls is far from lucky. I’m actually very shy when it comes to talking with girls, and it’s because of that, I have become rather solitary.

Chrissy: I know how you feel. I can’t even hold a conversation while looking someone in the eyes for very long. Holding long eye contact with others has always been a problem for me, and it’s also angered a lot of people. I am also very angrophobic and won’t hesitate to avoid confrontation and look for a way out. I am scared of being yelled at, and I feel like I don’t really feel like I fit in. Even though I’m a cheerleader, and I do enjoy singing, people don’t really see me for who I am, nor do they show interest in knowing the real me.

Chris: For most of those same reasons, my family and I never really get along. I too am scared to death of being yelled at and will rather run from an argument than face it head on. My Dad says that I am too naïve most of the time and has tried to toughen me up, but all it’s done was backfire and filled me up with hatred. He also doesn’t understand that our personalities are the exact opposite, and because of that, we have our own ways of dealing with things. He says you need to confront people in order to get what you want, where as I am more open minded and willing to deal with a few faults, and that’s where we collided. My Mom sorta understands, but at the same time, she’s been through so much and won’t take crap from anyone, and neither will I, so that’s when we collide. As for Alexis and I, it’s just our interests are too different, our tastes are too different, and the way we deal with things is too different, but she has tried to be understanding of me. However, she would act on instinct and fly off the handle without warning, and that’s where we’d collide.

Chrissy: I know how you feel Chris. No one would understand me, and I’ve been yelled at, scolded, and insulted so many times that it’s hurt me to a point where I want no part of it anymore.

Chris: Same here. Lexi is caught in the middle and will often plead the 5th party. Although she has flown off the handle without warning from time to time, she’s nowhere near as bad as Alexis. She and I don’t really know each other very well, nor have we ever, but we sorta have a better understanding of one another because we’ve both been through a lot. Of all the people who I clash with, I probably clash with Lexi the least compared to the fact I clash with my Dad the most, Alexis not too far behind, then my Mom. It all comes down to too many personality differences and similarities.

Chrissy: Same here and I guess that’s why Lexi and I get along so well, is because we’ve been through so much. Alexis has always scared me for as long as I can remember, and Katelynn seemed like a sweet girl until just recently.

Chris: I know, and I’m gonna have a talk with her about that.

Chrissy: I would love for us to be good friends, and I think we will Chris.

Chris: I think so too. Lexi was right, you and I have a lot of similarities.

Chrissy: Yeah, and I’d like to know more about you, so what are things you like? What are your favorite colors, what are your favorite foods, what kind of music do you listen to, and what are your favorite things to do?

Chris: Well I have an endless list, but as you know from hearing my phone calls with Juan, I love old steam trains, and that is a long story in itself. I also love cars, even though I drive my Mom’s old hand me down 98 Volvo Cross Country named Volvagia, and sure she’s old with 167K miles on her and is worn down by age, but she’s not dying on me anytime soon. I also do enjoy paranormal investigation and haunting documentaries, and I also do enjoy anime. My favorite colors would have to be black and red as the standard, but I also love purple or lavender depending on definition as well as golden yellow depending on the color blend, as well as cobalt blue, orange, and many others to name. As for what I enjoy eating, I’ll go for anything as long as it’s not too spicy because spicy foods set my mouth on fire, and if it’s too strong, I’ll go into a coma.

Chrissy: WOW!!!!!! That is scary because I too love cars!!!! Also black & red as well as cobalt blue are also some of my favorite colors as well as pink. I also love anime, and paranormal investigations are awesome!!!! Have you read The Haunting Of Blackmore Manor?

Chris: YES I HAVE, and it’s one of my favorite stories of all time.

Chrissy: MINE TOO!!! Do you also have a dream car?

Chris: OH YEAH!!!! That would be a toss up between the 2006 Aston Martin DB9 or the 2011 Noble M600!!!!

Chrissy: WOW!!!! Mine is the Audi R8!!!

Chris: That is an awesome car, but it doesn’t have the top speed of over 200 mph like the Aston or the Noble. Heck my Volvo has gone over 200 mph!!! LOL!!!!

Chrissy: WAIT, YOU’VE REALLY GONE THAT FAST??!!!

Chris: Yep!!! I’ve gone 115 on the highway and 207 on a racetrack. LOL!!!

Chrissy: AWWWWWWW BOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Anyways, the Audi R8 is still my dream car.

Chris: I admit, it is.

Chrissy: And what’s also freaky is, like you, I will eat anything, but I also hate spicy foods. It scares, and my parents tricked me into eating it once.

Chris: WHAT??!!! The scary thing is, at the age of 6, I ate at an Indian Restaurant known as Gaylord’s, and I ordered Chicken which is not supposed to be spicy, but it was, and it was so spicy that I ended up falling into a coma.

Chrissy: OMG!!!!! My parents tricked me at age 5, and when I burned my tongue I was crying for hours.

Chris: Why would they do that?

Chrissy: I guess they wanted me to try something different, but didn’t know that I wouldn’t able to handle it. I’ve hated spicy food ever since.

Chris: WOW!!!!! As for my favorite music, I love Fleetwood Mac, they are AMAZING, and I’ve never missed going to one of their concerts since 2003. Their music is just too good to surpass, and with Christine McVie rejoining the band, it can’t get any better. Also I love ColdPlay, and their new song Sky Full Of Stars brought me to tears. Every time I hear a new song from them, it’s always something amazing. First Clocks, then Viva La Vida, then Life In Technicolor, and now A Sky Full Of Stars; these guys are always thinking of something new during music’s evolution and it’s amazing. As for things I love to do, I collect model steam locomotives as well as working with the full size ones, but I also enjoy watching anime, playing video games, and I also enjoy playing the piano, guitar, and the pipe organ Whenever there is an organ recital at the nearby Roman Catholic Cathedral, I can’t help but always want to get involved, and play on the Cathedral’s Magnificent Casavant Freres pipe Organ.

Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!! THAT IS AMAZING!!!! Although my parents love Fleetwood Mac, I have never really heard them, but I LOVE COLDPLAY!!!!! Also you couldn’t be more right on your song listings, Sky Full Of Stars is AMAZING!!!!!!! I can listen to it over and over again. I also enjoy watching anime, and I am a HUGE video game freak. I can spend hours on my Xbox!!!! I also love to sing, and my dream is to someday be in a band and become a famous singer. I also enjoy shopping, and I am very passionate about my make up because to me, make up is like artwork. But most of all, besides singing, shopping and make up, I love anything and EVERYTHING related to DISNEY!!!!!!

Chris: HOLY SMOKES!!!! I too am a huge fan of anything related to Disney!!!! I go to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World all the time!!!!

Chrissy: ME TOO!!!!! OMG, OMG!!!!

Chris: And what got me into trains was my very first trip to Disneyland, and this was before both Alexis and Lexi were born, and my parents took me when I wasn’t even a year old. We wait in Main Street Train Station, and a few minutes later this beautiful green steam locomotive with a beautiful brass cap stack comes in blowing its beautiful single note whistle, and ringing its beautiful sweet sounding bell as she proudly displays her beauty with her massive red driving wheels, powerful huffing and puffing with the sounds of her air compressor, and powerful vibrations coming out of her firebox. I was captivated by it, and it was because of my very first trip to Disneyland. It only escalated from there when made parents and I made visits to Walt Disney World, and watching many other Disney films.

Chrissy: WOW!!! That is amazing!!!! Have you also read a story known as The Magical Game Of No Return??

Chris: YES I HAVE, and that story is heavily inspired off of Disney!!!!

Chrissy: I KNOW!!!!! IT HAS DISNEY INSPIRATIONS WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!!!!

Chris: I know!!!

Chris and Chrissy then hug each other realizing how much alike they really are.

Chrissy: I really like you Chris, and I know you and I are going to be best friends.

Chris: I think so too Ms. Granger.

Chrissy: Chris please, call me Chrissy.

Chris: Okay.

Lexi then wakes up and sees that Chris and Chrissy are getting along very well.

Lilly: *Giggles* You’ve been missing out Lexi.

Lexi: Missing out on what?

Lilly: Chris and Chrissy really seem to like each other a lot.

Chrissy: We do, but as friends that is.

Chris: Yeah, so don’t get the wrong idea.

Lexi: I am so very glad, and I had a feeling you 2 would get along. Now lets watch some t.v. and order pizza because I am starving.

Chris: I’m on it.

Chris then gets on the phone and orders a pizza while Lexi turns on the t.v. and selects her favorite movie of The Life Of A Prince & Princess.

Chris: Lexi, don’t you and Alexis get sick of watching that?

Lexi: Chrissy, come on, it’s our most favorite movie of all time!!!

Chrissy: What do you mean Lexi; it’s one of my favorites too!!!

Chris: Again Lexi, you shouldn’t be calling me that or you’ll get Ms. Granger confused.

Lexi: Sorry, I keep forgetting.

Just before their movie was about to start, it was interrupted by 2 news broadcasts.

News Reporter: We have some breaking news local news here, it seems that there has been a severe accident over on highway 42. An 18 wheeler semi truck has flipped over and is blocking both north and south bound lanes. The cause seems to be 4 cars racing each other and were going over 110 miles per hour before crashing into each other. The accident has also involved 3 other unsuspecting vehicles.

Chris, Chrissy, Lexi, and Lilly then look on T.V. and take a look a close look at the license plate number and sure enough on a crushed upside down Ford Mustang, the car belonged to Ralph who was on a date with Alexis.

News Reporter: From the looks of the accident there have appeared to be no survivors, and it just gets worse from here, for on another report, and international flight bound for Malaysia from Italy, has crashed in the side of the mountains in the Ukraine. Flight 217, a Boeing 777 was seen from below as it banked a hard left before crashing into the side of a mountain. Rescue workers are on the way, but there only appears to be 2 survivors, which appear to be a 10-year-old male and 5-year-old girl. This is Barbara Gonzales with live on Channel 2 news.

Lexi: NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Lexi then breaks down and cries her eyes out as she wraps her arms around Chris once again.

Lexi: NOOOOOOO!!!!! FIRST BRANDON GOES TO JAIL, THEN RALP & ALEXIS, NOW MOM & DAD!!!!!!!!!!! WHY, WHY DID THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: OH MY GOSH NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Both Chrissy and Lilly broke down in tears as well after hearing the news.

Chrissy & Lilly: OUR PARENTS WERE ON THAT FLIGHT TOO!!!!!!

Chris then gets a call on his phone and hears both Wendy and Nina crying there eyes out.

Nina & Wendy: WE LOST BOTH OF OUR PARENTS ON THE FLIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris’s world felt like it was falling apart around him left and right as he saw those who he had cared for in pain and suffering, while he himself had just lost both his parents, and his beloved younger sister. It soon became too much for him to bare that his eyes completely dilated before falling back and instantly fainting.
Chris’s, Lexi’s, Chrissy’s, Lillys, Nina’s, and Wendy’s life had just taken a turn for the worst.

Chapter 5

A Time To Move On

A few days had passed since the horrific accidents, and the day of a big funeral had come. The bodies of Mr. & Mrs. Mandez along with Alexis and Ralph, as well as Chrissy’s and Lilly’s parents, and both of Nina’s and Wendy’s parents were buried in beautiful closed rosewood caskets. One by one, each casket was buried, and flowers were laid by their graves. Tears flowed down everyone’s faces for the loss of their loved ones. Chris tried to stay strong, but he couldn’t hold it in. He walked out of site, and hid behind his car Volvagia before crying his eyes out on her.
Volvagia then began to cry as a few tears came out of her headlamps.

Chris: It’s all my fault Volvagia!!!! It’s all my fault!!!!!! I should have told Ralph & Alexis to drive on side streets or to take a different highway!!!!!! I should have told Mom & Dad about the trains, and I should have told them to fly to England and take a flight from British Airways!!!! If I did that, none of this would have happened.

Just then Chrissy, Lilly, and Lexi walked up to Chris.
Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chris and hugged him tightly.

Lexi: Chris, it’s not your fault!!!! Please, don’t blame yourself for it!!! You can’t keep blaming yourself for everything that’s not your fault. It breaks my heart every time you do that. It’s okay to cry Chris, but know that you’re all I’ve got now since I’ve lost my boyfriend, I’ve lost my sister, and I’ve lost my parents. I know you weren’t as close to Mommy & Daddy or Alexis as I was, but I know that you loved them very much, and know that they loved you very much. Know that I also love you very much Chris, and I’ll do anything for you. I need you more than ever now because you’re all that’s left of my family.

Chrissy: Lilly & I need you too Chris. We may not have known you for very long, but you’ve become our best friend, I know it’s hard not to blame yourself, but you can’t keep doing that Chris.

Chrissy then held Chris’s hand and wiped his tears.

Chrissy: You are a really sweet boy, an amazing friend, and you have no idea how lucky Lexi is to have you as her brother. Lilly and I are also lucky to have you as our best friend, and also know that Katelynn doesn’t deserve you. You deserve much better than her. Those who leave you without messaging or calling, aren’t worthy of your tears.

Lilly: You’re very special to us Chris, and we need you.

Just then Nina and Wendy walked up to Chris.

Nina: Without our parents, we have nowhere to go……..

Wendy: You’re all we’ve got now Chris and we need you now more than ever before.

Lexi: And if you continue to blame yourself, you’ll be hurting us as well as yourself, so please, don’t blame yourself for something that’s not your fault. Mommy & Daddy and Alexis wouldn’t want that.

Chrissy: Neither would my parents, and if they had met you, they would instantly love you, so please, know that you are not alone!!!!

Lexi: You are very strong Chris, but know that we are all here for you.

Lexi then gives Chris a kiss on the cheek and again on the forehead, and Chris kisses her back before the 2 embrace each other in a hug.

Chris: That’s it. We need a whole new life. We need a new change of pace; I can’t stay here anymore.

Lexi: I’m with you Chris.

Chrissy: Me too.

Lilly: Me three.

Nina & Wendy: So are we.

Chris: I’m going to sell our mansion, our estate, and the current Mandez Machine Works Warehouse. We’re gonna have our private jet, our private yacht, and our trains move to our new location because we’re moving west.

Lexi: That sounds perfect because I now hate this place.

Chrissy: Yeah, and Lilly & I have been wanting to move for the longest time.

Nina: It’s too boring here, and after losing are parents…….

Wendy: We have nothing left here. Everything’s gone.

Chris: We’ll find a nice beautiful fixer upper mansion in Anaheim Hills, we’re gonna help build Travel Town a proper Transportation Museum to display their trains and add other historical pieces to their collection. And of course I’ll ensure that we get granted access to run our beloved steam engines.

Chrissy: Anaheim, hmmmmm…………….

Lilly: Does that mean…………

Chris: Yes it does!!! We are moving to California because we need a new life style. Once the restoration on Union Pacific 4466 and Graham County 1925 has been completed, we are running our trains under their own steam power, and moving to California. We will set up our new base for The Mandez Machine Works near Anaheim where I know we will get a lot more business, and you girls will be in a much better high school.

Lexi: That sounds perfect Chris!!

Chrissy: And we’ll all be by your side no matter what!!!

Lilly: Always!!!!

Wendy: Right!!!!

Nina: There is no way I’m ever leaving you!!!!

Chris: Thank you everyone, it means a lot!!!

A few days later, Chris and Lexi speak with their attorney, and sign all papers for their parents wills.

Attorney: Everything the parents own, along with all of the billions of dollars, assets, and the estate, now belong to you 2 and only you 2. If you were to marry, part of the fortune would also go to your spouses, but for now, only you 2 have access to everything.

Chris & Lexi: Thank you very much for everything.

Chris, Lexi, and all of their friends prepare to start their new lives. Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly inform everyone on their cheerleading squad about their moving to California.

Lexi: So our very last cheer competition is on Memorial Day at the Ohio State Championship. After it’s over, Chrissy, Lilly, and I will be moving to California with my brother to start our new lives. As your cheer captain, I am very proud of all of you, and it I will miss all of you. You’re all like family to me, but now I need to spend time with my brother after losing most of my family, and I need to move on with my life.

Chrissy: Me too. Lilly and I need time as well, and if we stay here, it’ll hurt us even more, but we will miss you all very much.

Lilly: We promise to always keep in touch, and we will come back to visit.

Lexi: And maybe we’ll see you all again at Nationals at the Anaheim Convention Center. Now lets keep it up until the Ohio State Championship.

Meanwhile Chris gets to work with the Mandez Machine Works in getting engines 4466, 1925, and McCLoud 18 prepped and ready to go.

Chris: Okay everyone, due to circumstances and needed a new change of pace, my sister Lexi, along with her friends, as well as Nina, Wendy, and I will all be moving to California. We have till Memorial Day to get these engines ready, so we will need all hands on deck.

Big Joe: Hey not a problem!!! I’m sick of this place, as is my wife, and she’s been trying to get me to move to California for the longest time. So this will be great news to my family.

Robert: I’ve got nothing here, so I’ll go where you guys go.

Tom: My daughter goes to college in California, and my wife goes all the time, so it’s perfect.

Doug: My girlfriend just moved to California, so it works perfectly for me.

Steven: My parents moved to California last year, so it’s perfect.

Juan: My mom and I are sick of living in this place in the middle of Ohio, and we need a new change of pace, so California will be perfect for us.

Mike: Sweet!!!! It works great with me too, since my younger brother Greg lives in California!!!!

Alex: And I have a job interview at Knott’s Berry Farm in a month and ½, so this is perfect!!!!

Aaron: And if that’s the case, I’m getting myself an Annual pass to Disneyland!!!

Chris: Looks like all of The Mandez Machine Works is moving to California, and that is great!!!! Thank you so very much you guys, for everything!!!

Just then a notice was dropped off at the door.
Chris then picks up the notice and sees that it’s a notice of eviction.

Chris: Due to unauthorized noise pollution, installation train tracks, and oil spills from your locomotives, you will be evicted from this warehouse unless you pay the fine of $250K. In order to receive the legal documentation, you must run it by city council, and get your legal permits. Failure to pay the fine or evict the premises by the date noted below can result in prosecution and up to 25 years in prison. You have until the day after Memorial Day to either pay the fine or evict the warehouse. Thank you for your cooperation.

Big Joe: UH-OH!!!!!

Chris: Uh-Oh is right, so we all better get to work on our equipment pronto!!!! I’ll pay all of you double time if we go over our hours. Both 4466 and 1925 have good boilers and fireboxes according to the FRA. So they have their staybolts replaced and brand new tubes and tube sheets as well as their electronic components, and 1925 has her engine set back on, so we gotta get the FRA inspectors back over here right away, and get the engines hydro tested ASAP!!!! We must get to work installing all of the external piping on the engines, as well as the rest of 1925’s line shafts, and 4466’s connecting rods. Now lets go!!!!

Everyone then works round the clock on finishing up the restoration on the locomotives. The girls set to work on taking inventory of the new replacement parts including the line shaft bearings, universal joint bearings, rod bearings, bearing caps, oilers, injector pipes, branch pipe valves, and the new ball valve injectors.
More dirt, dust, and paint went flying all over the warehouse as the restoration work continued. Almost everyone was working 10 hours a day with hardly any rest time until the FRA inspector finally arrived and both 4466 and 1925 were ready for hydro. Both locomotives had their boilers filled up with water, and a pressure gauge was fitted on their steam domes. Over 350PSI was pumped into the boilers, and both engines passed hydro with flying colors.

FRA Inspector: Good work!!!! Your engines have passed, and you’re clear to finish reassembly. I’m sure these will be fantastic machines when they return to active service.

Chris: Alright guys, you heard him. Time to finish putting the engines back together. We have until Monday to get out of here, I have a mansion & estate to sell, so lets move!!!!

The restoration crew instantly set to work on finishing up UP 4466’s and Graham County 1925’s reassembly. Chris then sets to work on putting his family estate on the market, and getting everything staged. Meanwhile Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly along with the rest of the cheerleaders continue practicing round the clock. Tension was building up on both ends, and on Friday night of Memorial Day weekend, both Chris and Lexi arrived home completely wiped out.


Chris: FLYIN, FUCKEN, SHIT!!!!! I am worn out.

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!! MY BACK HURTS, MY BUTT HURTS, MY LEGS HURT, I CAN BARELY STAND!!!!!

Chris: I just finished timing the valves on both the 4466 and 1925, and MY GOD!!!!! Dealing with 6 eccentrics on a shay locomotive’s Stevenson Valve linkage is a NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!

Lexi: And I was freezing my butt off at the football game while having to do multiple air stunts, and ground stunts. I know the squad went overboard for the Ohio State Championship, but hey, we’re ready.

Chris: And the last of the parts have just been reinstalled on both engines, and all they need now are their final coats of paint, and they are good to go. It will only take 2 days to undertake the painting, while all of the machinery out of the shop will be loaded onto the freight train. Not to mention the open house starts tomorrow, and movers arrive on Sunday afternoon to pack up everything. They finish the packing Monday Morning and will load everything into their trucks.

Lexi: Sounds like everything is all lined up for us to begin our new life.

Chris: That it is.

Lexi: Chrissy and Lilly are working really hard and are doing very beautifully with their cheerleading. They are by far, the best girls on the squad. As for Katelynn though, she quit about a month ago, and is going through too many personal problems.

Chris: I guess it means that she and I are over, which I understand, but I do feel bad for her. I only wish there was something I could do to help her.

Lexi: Me too. She loved you very much Chris, but all of a sudden, something happened and now the Katelynn we know and love is no longer with us. But I do think Chrissy is a good girl for you. That is whenever you decide to ask her out, and I know she will say yes.

Chris: Lexi, I know where you’re coming from, and I do like her a lot, but I don’t want to be rushed into another relationship. It would be like me trying to rush you into a relationship when you weren’t ready.

Lexi: I see your point, and I’m sorry, but I really think you 2 would make a cute couple.

Chris: And I appreciate the gesture Lexi, but now I just need time to move on.

Lexi: I know, so do I. Having to break up with Brandon has been very hard on me, but I know that I must move on.

Chris: Yeah.

Lexi: Do you know where we will be moving to?

Chris: I have all of that set up. I have contacted Gateway Apartments in Orange. Now before you say anything, Gateway Apartments is located in the Platinum Triangle of the Anaheim area, and that is the most upscale neighborhood of Anaheim. And there are multiple apartment complexes that were originally built to be condos, but during the economy crash 5 years ago, the new owners couldn’t afford to buy them, so multiple real-estate companies decided to lease all the units out as apartments. Now there are multiple upscale luxury apartment units available for Rent at reasonable costs. I’ve looked at all the comps and Gateway seemed to be the best given that the complex is like a 5 star resort, it’s just 5 minutes away from the Disneyland Resort, downtown Anaheim, Old Town Orange, Christ Roman Catholic Cathedral, and it’s right off of highway 5.

Lexi: WOW!!!! That is amazing!!!! Now what are we gonna do with all this furniture?

Chris: Well, I’m going to rent us a storage unit, while we get a full year lease on our apartment unit. The plan is for us to find a fixer upper mansion in the Anaheim Hills area, and with that project you, me, Chrissy, Lilly, Wendy, Nina, Mike, Alex, and Juan will build a whole new place to call home. Though not all of them are going to live in it of course, but it will be pretty much our new go to base as a safe haven for our friends while you and I will live there full time given that it will be our home.

Lexi: I love that plan Chris, and as always you amaze me when it comes to thinking things through.

Chris: As far as family goes, you’re all I have, and I promise to take good care of you as best as I can. I promise to love you, care for you, protect you, and help you follow your dreams because what matters to me is your happiness. You and I may not have been that close but we weren’t that distant either. But since you and I are all we have left, it’s time that we treasure what we have that’s left of our family.

Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chris, and cried.

Lexi: Chris……………………

Chris: I’m always here for you Lil Sis, as both a friend, and as a brother. I am always here for you.

Lexi: Me too Chris. I love you so much.

Chris: Likewise Sis.

Chris then gave Lexi a kiss on the cheek and again on the forehead and stroked her gently.

Chris: I’ll order us a pizza, and we can watch one of our favorite movies. We’ve got a busy day tomorrow with me moving all the equipment, and you with your cheerleading competitions as well as us having to deal with the open houses during the next couple days.

Lexi: Yeah, but it’ll be worth it.

Chris: I promise that we’ll have a better life once we move west.

Chris and Lexi then enjoy a nice quiet evening at home while the next 2 days of the weekend were treacherous.
Loading up all of the overhauling machinery into McCloud 18’s Freight train was heavy and backbreaking work. While on Lexi’s side, the cheerleading competitions were brutal and strenuous, but fortunately her cheer squad was doing well.
The open houses were also going well, and multiple buyers took interest in the Mandez Estate. On Sunday however, a wealthy man who owned his personal 0-4-2RT steam engine along with his family put an above asking price off on the estate, and the place was sold that evening.
Chris and Lexi wanted to celebrate with their friends but they couldn’t, for Monday of Memorial Day was the day of the big move, and everyone needed a good night sleep for that big day.

Chris: A new life lies ahead of us tomorrow Lexi, and we have a lot to look forward to.

Lexi: We sure do Chris and I can’t wait. ☺

Early the next morning, the movers were packing up the remainder of all the furniture.
Chris and Lexi got out of bed as fast as they could before both of their bed frames were taken out of their rooms.

Lexi: OKAY, this is sooooooooo not cool!!!!! -_- I HAVE A CHEERLEADING COMPETITION IN 2 HOURS AND CAN’T I HAVE MY BATH IN PEACE????!!!!!!

Chris was especially not happy with how the movers were mucking about with the stuff, especially his beloved Mason & Hamlin Model C2 Double Keyboard grand piano.

Chris: BE CAREFUL WITH THAT!!!!!!!!! THAT WAS A CUSTOM MADE ORDER AND COST ME OVER $71K GRAND!!!!!!!

Lexi: SHIT!!!! WHERE THE HELL ARE MY BIKINI SPANKIES????!!!!!

Chris: HEY!!!! YOU GUYS BETTER BE CAREFUL WITH MY BACHMANN C-19!!!!

Lexi: FOUND THEM!!!!! NOW WHERE IS MY EYE GLITTER?????!!!!!!!!!

Chris: NOOOO, NOOOO, NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! YOU DON’T HANDLE MY HAND MADE TURN TABLE LIKE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: NOW WHERE ARE MY FAKE EYE LASHES???!!!!!!

Chris: GUYS!!!!!!!! THAT IS NOT HOW YOU HANDLE MIUNA, MY LIVE STEAMER!!!!!!!

Lexi: WHERE THE HELL IS MY SCRUNCHY?????!!!!!!!!!

Chris: NOT MY STEAM TRAIN TO HEAVEN PICTURE!!!!!! THAT WAS EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!!

Lexi: AND MY HAIR RIBBON!!!!!!!

Chris: CAREFUL WITH THE GUITARS!!!!!!!

This went on and on and on until finally, the last of all the furniture and other things were fully loaded up into the trucks and both Chris and Lexi were ready to leave.

Chris & Lexi: UGH!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!

Lexi: YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF THE TROUBLE I WENT THROUGH TO FIND EVERYTHING BECAUSE OF THE FURNITURE BEING MOVED!!!!

Chris: AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF THE TROUBLE I’VE BEEN THROUGH ON HOW TO PREVENT THE MOVERS FROM ROUGH HOUSING OUR STUFF!!!!!

Lexi: I managed, I’m wearing my complete cheer uniform, I have my bag, and my make up is right.

Chris: I got the guys to pack everything right, there’s not a scratch on a single thing, and everything is all well packed.

Chris & Lexi: GLAD THAT IS FINALLY OVER!!!!!!!

Chris and Lexi then look at each other and they both burst out laughing.

Chris & Lexi: *BURST OUT LAUGHING REALLY HARD* OH MY GOD, WE SURE ARE STUPID!!!!! LOL!!!!!! GOOD JOB YOU GUYS, SORRY FOR THE TROUBLE, YOU ARE FREE TO GO!!!!!!!!!

The movers then get in their trucks and drive away, while Chris and Lexi hop in Volvagia.

Lexi: We must pick up Chrissy and Lilly before you drop us off at the Convention Center given that her car was loaded onto the bed of a truck for transport.

Chris: No problem. I made sure they we saved enough room in one of the box cars to fit our car.

Chris then depressed the clutch, turned over the engine, put the gearshift in first gear, and Volvagia took off.

Lexi: Got the suite cases, got plenty of changes of panties, bras, skirts, socks, and everything else.

Chris: Good. I’ve got everything I need as well.

Lexi: How far are we planning on going tonight?

Chris: If we can, we’ll hopefully go as far as Detroit and stay at the Ritz Carlton in Dearborn. It’s not too far away from the UP mainline, and the engines can probably stay at Greenfield Village for the night. We’ll hopefully be in Chicago by tomorrow, and see how far we can for the remainder of the week. Though given 1925’s slow speed of 18 miles per hour, it will take a while.

Lexi: WHAT???!!!!! 18 MILES PER HOUR, ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!!!!!

Chris: Unfortunately shay locomotives like that of Graham County number #1925 were built for traction and flexibility rather than speed.

Lexi: OMG!!!!!! IF YOU CAN’T HAVE ONE THING, YOU HAVE TO SACRIFICE ANOTHER!!!!!!! JUST GREAT!!!! -_-

Chris: I did state that we could remove the line shaft, and have UP 4466 tow her while she goes 40 miles per hour but………

Lexi: BUT WHAT???!!!!!

Chris: Union Pacific number #4466 is an 0-6-0 switcher with no pony or trailing wheels. This allows her to move about through railroad yards and around curves at 20 miles per hour no problem, but if you run her on a mainline too fast then you’re going to be in for one hell of a bouncy ride. The crew are gonna be in agony and will probably be throwing up left and right if we let her go over 20 miles per hour, so we figured just to leave 1925 intact and let her run with 4466 since neither can go really fast.

Lexi: GEEZE!!!!!!! THAT REALLY STINKS!!!!!!!

Chris: Tell me about it. We also looked to have the engines trucked, or even loaded onto the back of flat cars on the UP but it would have been too much money.

Lexi: Chris, you know we can afford it.

Chris: Even so, the crew didn’t want to do it, and they figured it would be more rewarding if we ran the engines under their own steam power. But I wonder………

Lexi: Hmmmmmmmm……….

Chris: There are multiple branch lines that the 4466 and 1925 can run on, so maybe the crew on those 2 can take their time while we go ahead on the dual gauged mainline with McCloud 18 on the UP Mainline, so maybe that can work.

Lexi: That sounds much better. How fast can our engine go anyway?

Chris: Katie Belle can probably go up to 40 miles per hour, and so can McCloud 18, and that’s about the average speed of a mainline freight train. So we should be good.

Lexi: Awesome!!!! I am so looking forward to this move.

Chris: Me too!

Lexi: Even though I’m gonna miss our old home since it’s where we grew up; it’s time for us to go and start a new life.

Chris: I totally agree. And if you wanna know what the best part is, Big Joe’s wife has been pushing for him to move to California, Doug’s wife lives in California, Tom’s daughter lives there, Mike’s younger brother Greg lives in California, Steven’s parents live in California, and Alex has a job interview at Knott’s Berry Farm. So everybody wins, and this gives them an even better reason to move.

Lexi: THAT’S GREAT!!!!!!!

Just then Lexi gets a call from Chrissy.

Lexi: Hey Chrissy!!!!

Chrissy: Hey Lexi!!!!

Lexi: Chris and I are on our way to pick you up, and we should be on our way.

Chrissy: GREAT!!!!! My old family friends are taking care of selling the house, Lilly and I have everything boxed up and on the truck. We have our change of clothes packed, and we’re ready to go.

Lexi: AWESOME!!!!

Chrissy: Yeah!!! Anyway, can I talk to Chris?

Lexi: Of course!!!!! Chris, she wants to talk to you, and I have a feeling that she really likes you.

Chris: Doubt it, but I’ll talk to her.

Lexi: Hey, as I said before, you’d make a great couple!!!!

Chris: Don’t rush me!!!

Lexi: Talk to her!!!!

Chrissy: Hey Chris!!!!

Chris: Hello Mrs. Granger!

Chrissy: Please, call me Chrissy!!! We’ve been over this before!!!!

Chris: Sorry.

Chrissy: Don’t worry about it!!! Anyway, how are you?

Chris: I’m doing alright, how are you?

Chrissy: I’m doing great, thank you!!! I’m also very excited about the move, aren’t you?

Chris: This move cannot come soon enough.

Chrissy: I am completely with you on that!!!

Chris: Looks we all need this move to happen.

Chrissy: Yeah, and I’d really like to get to know you better, so this move will definitely help us become closer.

Chris: Likewise. Also I see you at the curb here, so I’ll get off the phone, and will help you load up your things.

Chrissy: GREAT!!! Thank you!!!!

Volvagia then pulls up to the cub where Chrissy and Lilly were waiting. Chris then brings Volvagia to a stop, and both Chris and Lexi greet her warmly.

Lexi: Are you ready for this Chrissy?

Chrissy: I am sooooooo ready!!

Chrissy and Lexi then hug each other, and then Chrissy wraps her arms around Chris.

Chrissy: I’m so very excited to spend more time with you Chris.

Chris: Likewise, and I have everything wired, so no need to worry about a thing. I have found us a great apartment complex to live in while we look for a great fixer upper mansion to live in. Though it will take a while to renovate, we’ll all be involved together so we can design it to the way we want it. Also the apartment complex is like a 5 star resort and is just 5 minutes away from Disneyland.

Chrissy: REALLY???!!!! THAT’S AMAZING!!!!! You really do know how to wow a girl Chris.

Chris: I wouldn’t go that far, but I do want the best for you, Lilly, and Lexi, so I gotta make this transition as easy as possible, but I also gotta make it fun as well.

Chrissy: You really are very sweet Chris, and I’m really excited about spending more time with you.

Chris: We’ll I’ll help you and Lilly with your bags.

Chris then loaded Chrissy’s and Lilly’s bag into Volvagia’s trunk, and all the girls got back in the car, and Chris put Volvagia in gear and drove off.

Lexi: So Chrissy, can you believe that this is our very last cheerleading competition here??!!!

Chrissy: I KNOW!!!! It’s so hard to believe.

Lexi: I’m sooooo excited yet sad because this is our biggest one of the year, and we’ve never gotten this far before, but I’m really gonna miss everyone.

Chrissy: I know, same here.

Just then Chris got a phone call from Juan.

Juan: Hey Chris!!!

Chris: Yes Juan?

Juan: Everyone is waiting for you with all 4 engines fired up and getting up to pressure.

Chris: I’m on my way, I just need to drop off Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly off at the Convention Center. Neither 1925 or 4466 have operated in over 10 years, so building up boiler pressure will take a while, but we should hopefully have them good to go by noon.

Juan: Yeah, now how do you want to do this evacuation thing?

Chris: Good question, let me ask the girls. Lexi what time does your competition end?

Lexi: It ends at 4, but depending on when we go up to compete, we could be done sooner.

Chrissy: Yeah, so when we’re done, come pick us up if it works for you.

Chris: Alrighty!!!! Juan, the latest we can leave is around 3:30, and given 1925’s slow speed of 18 miles per hour, and Number #4466’s lack of a pilot or trailer truck restricting her as well, best that we let the go as soon as they’re up to full operating pressure. We’ll run those 2 on branch lines that run parallel to the UP mainline where the McCloud 18 will run. Katie Belle will take the dual gauged mainline that is not too far away, so we’ll all be in pretty close proximity from one another. The only difference being that Katie Belle and McCloud 18 will catch up and run far ahead given their top speeds of 44 miles per hour.

Juan: Okay, that sounds like a good plan. Now how are we gonna deal with water stops?

Chris: Good question. Even though all 3 standard gauge locomotives are equipped with water tank cars, as is Katie Belle, the best thing that we can do is get water from the nearest supply possible. We’ll be going through boiler chemical treatment like crazy, but we will be parked in Greenfield Village for the night, so we should get a good fill from there.

Juan: That might just work, though 4466 and McCloud 18 are superheated where as…….

Chris: 1925 and Katie Belle are saturated locomotives, and use more water, which means they’ll have to stop more. However 1925 holds a good supply in her tender, though Katie Belle has a tiny water tank and can’t hold much, so this should be interesting.

Juan: How did railroaders handle this back in the 1800s?

Chris: They had water towers, and plenty of them, but they didn’t know to use water treatment until later on, and when water treatment was available, there were more stops, locomotives were larger and had greater water capacity. So that pretty much says a lot.

Juan: Yeah, I see your point. Anyways, how far away are you?

Chris: The Convention Center is not too far away from here. It’s probably only 5 minutes.

Juan: Okay, I’ll see you soon.

Chris: C-ya in a few.

Chris then gets off the phone with Jaun.

Chris: The stuff I must go through girls……

Lexi: But do you think we’ll be okay?

Chris: Only one way to find out, so we’ll pretty much learn from trial and error.

Chrissy: I believe in you Chris, and I know I can count on you to get us to California.

Lilly: Me too Chris.

Chris: Thanks Girls, but I promise to do what I can for you.

Before Chrissy could answer, the Ashta City Convention Center came into view.

Lexi: THERE IT IS!!!

Chris: Got it, and it happens to be right next to the railroad tracks, so that works perfectly. But it’s right by a grade crossing!!!!!

Chrissy: Is that bad???!!!

Chris: Depending on how whistle happy the guys get when they approach the crossing, and given that this is pretty much a safety zone, I’d say yes.

Lexi: I just hope they’re not too loud when we’re up.

Chris the drives Volvagia up to the curb right outside of the Convention Center where a bunch of other cheerleaders gather.

Lexi: You can lets us off here Chris.

Chris: No problem.

Chrissy: Thank you so very much for everything Chris.

Lilly: Yeah, Chrissy and I can’t be anymore grateful.

Chris: Anytime girls. One of you can just give me a call, and the guys and I will come on over.

Lexi: Sounds good Chris.

Chris: Good luck girls!!!

Chrissy: Thank you Chris!!!

Chris: Anytime.

Chrissy: Now Chris, please don’t over work yourself.

Chris: Don’t worry too much about me.

Chrissy: You’re my new best friend so I can’t help it.

Chris: I promise I’ll be just fine.

Lilly: Love you Chris!!!!

Chris: LOL!!! Love you too Lilly!!!

Chris then puts the gear shift in gear and he and Volvagia drive off to the warehouse which was only 10 minutes away.
The girls wave good bye as Chris drives away, and both Lexi and Lilly could tell that something was up with Chrissy.

Chrissy: What is it?

Lexi & Lilly: *Giggles*

Chrissy: WHAT??!!!!!

Lexi: Do you like my brother?!!!

Chrissy: As a friend yes!!!!

Lilly: It’s more than that Sissy!!!!

Chrissy: WHAT??!!!!!

Lexi: We can tell, no need to hide it Chrissy!!!!

Chrissy: Girls, there’s nothing going on, I promise!!!!

Lilly: Okay, if you say so Sissy.

Lexi then whispers to Lilly.

Lexi: I know she has a crush on my brother, and my brother just broke up with Katelynn, so I have a plan.

Lilly: Okay.

Chrissy: What are you girls whispering about?

Lexi: OH, NOTHING!!!!! LOL!!!!

Lilly: NO NEED TO WORRY!!!!!

Chrissy: That’s when I worry the most.

The girls then walk inside of the convention center building and meet up with the rest of their cheer squad. Meanwhile, Chris and Volvagia then arrive at the Mandez Machine Works warehouse and Little Kaite Belle number #22 is already up to full operating steam pressure. All the other 3 engines were slowly building up pressure, and were looking like a million dollars in their beautiful shiny new coats of gloss black paint. Everything was looking good until……

Juan: Chris, we have a big problem!!!!

Chris: What is it?

Big Joe: We have a lot of left over tolls that we can’t fit inside of one of the boxcars behind UP 4466.

Chris: WHAT??!!!

Doug: We ran out of room on McCloud 18’s train, and UP donated us a couple box cars and a caboose which is great, but it still wasn’t enough to fit all of our equipment, and now we need room for all these tools.

Tom and Jack then take a look at Volvagia’s trunk, and Volvagia beings to honk her horn.

Volvagia: BEEEEEEEEEPPPP!!!!!!!!

Chris: GUYS!!!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING????????!!!!!!!!!

Tom: 4 tiny suitcases I see. It just so happens that the box car on UP 4466’s train has just enough room for them, and we can put all of the tools we need in your trunk.

Chris: WHAT???!!!!! The girls will kill me if I do that!!!!! Why don’t you just through them into on of the 3 cabooses???!!!! Yeah, that’s it; THROW EM IN A CABOOSE!!!!!

Tom: WE’RE NOT THROWING EM IN A CABOOSE, THEY’LL BE TRIPPING HAZARDS, NOW OUT WITH THE SUITCASES AND IN WITH THE TOOLS!!!!!

Jack: I’ll HELP YOU OUT TOM!!!!

Big Joe: I WANT IN!!!!!

Volvagia then shut her headlamps and covered up her lamps with little shades, and Chris looked away as well, while the guys threw out the girl’s bags and threw them into a boxcar which had just enough room to fit them on UP 4466’s Train. They then folded down Volvagia’s back seats, and threw in a bunch of tools in her trunk until the last wrench was out of site and in Volvagia’s trunk.

Volvagia: BEEP!!!!!

Chris: I don’t blame you old girl!!! Those tools are heavy!!!!! Well, with that done, and no more room in a boxcar, I’ll load you into Katie Belle’s baggage car. She’ll hate me for the weight, but it’s the only car left.

Chris then opened up Katie Belle’s baggage car, got out 2 long sturdy planks of wood, drove Volvagia into Katie Belle’s baggage car, and chained her down good and secure.

Chris: Sorry about the tonnage Old Girl, but I promise you’ll be safe here. The girls are gonna kill me once they find out that they don’t have a clean pair of underwear to put on after the competition. But hey, it wasn’t my idea to throw tools in your trunk and throw the bags on 4466’s train, so we’ll blame it on the guys. LOL

Chris then jumps out of Katie Belle’s baggage car, and throws the wooden planks in before closing up the massive baggage car doors.

Over the next couple hours, boiler pressure climbs until Graham County 1925’s safety valve pops signaling that she was at her operating pressure of 200 PSI!!!!!

Chris: AWESOME!!!!!!!!! WE DID IT!!!! WE DID IT!!!!! THE SHAY HAS BEEN RESTORED ON TIME!!!!!!!

Tom and Doug then climb into 1925’s cab and open the large valves on her steam turret leading to her twin air compressors and with a loud and mighty………

BANG………BANG……………BANG………..BANG………..BANG………..BANG……………BANG………………BANG………….BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG!!!!!!!!!!

The Graham County Shay number #1925 was ready to go!!!

Just then the Union Pacific Number #4466’s safety valve went off signaling that she was up to operating steam pressure.
Both Jack Anderson and Jack Verdi climb in to her cab and open up a valve on her steam turret and activate her dual cross compound air compressor.

Chris: AMAZING!!!!!!! WE’VE REVIVED BOTH ENGINES RIGHT ON TIME!!!!!!!!

Juan: I KNOW, AND I THOUGHT IT COULDN’T BE DONE!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: THIS IS A START FOR A WHOLE NEW CHAPTER OF OUR LIVES GUYS!!!!!

Just then McCloud River Railroad Number #18’s safety valve went off signaling that she was ready to go.

Big Joe, Robert, and Steven then climb into her cab, open up a valve on her steam turret, and activate her dual cross compound air compressor.
Together, all 4 engines were huffing and puffing left and right with so many clouds of hot steam going all over the warehouse. To Chris and all the guys at the Mandez Machine Works, it was a thing of majesty and beauty. This was not only the rebirth of 2 steam locomotives, it was also the start of a new chapter in everyone’s lives, but little did Chris know that he was soon to go to a whole new world that would change his life forever.

Chapter 6

HIGH BALL!!!!

All 4 engines were hot, hissing, and were all ready to go.
Chris and Juan then climbed into Katie Belle’s cab as the rest of the carpenters and steam crew, climbed into the cabooses on all 3 of the standard gauge trains.

Chris: Okay, so here is the order. Forget what I said about McCloud 18 going last, because she is the fastest and should go ahead with everything she’s got. Full throttle all the way.

Big Joe: Okay, sounds good!!!!

Chris: After her will be Union Pacific number #4466, given that she can also go fast, but we’ll have to keep it between 20-35 miles per hour so your ride isn’t too rough. You also have a fairly light load of just 1 water tank car, 2 boxcars, and a caboose, where as McCloud 18 has a very heavy load to take, so don’t go highballing too much.

Jack Anderson: No problem!!!

Chris: Okay, now comes Graham County Shay engine number #1925. You guys have an extremely light load of only 1 water tank car, 5 empty side dump cars, and a logging caboose. You’re also at a disadvantage given that this shay maybe fast for a well a shay, but she can’t go faster than 18-20 miles per hour, so you guys are really gonna have to highball it.

Tom: Oh don’t you worry!!! I can easily get a shay to go up to 15 miles per hour, so high balling is no problem!!!!!

Chris: Great!!!! Now all of the engines are fully equipped with satellite navigation units on small lap top computers, so you guys can go on branch lines to keep out of the way of mainline traffic. However, whenever the branch line comes to an end, you can also make your ways back to the mainline if need be.
I will be the last to depart for I have to pick up my sister, along with her friends Chrissy & Lilly from Cheerleading, but I will take Katie Belle on the dual gauged mainline and will give her everything she’s got. But I am aware that there are multiple narrow gauge spurs that connect in case if anything were to happen on the main.

Everyone: Sounds good!!!!!

Chris: Alrighty everyone, before we all go, there’s one more thing I must do.

Chris then gets out a bunch of USA flags and places them all in the locomotives’ flagpoles. Both McCloud 18 and Katie Belle had massive USA flags standing over 4 feet tall inserted in their flag poles on their pilot decks while Union Pacific number #4466 had both small flags inserted in small flag poles near the top of her smoke box as well as the same massive flags that McCloud 18 and Katie Belle had, in her flagpoles on her pilot deck while Graham County 1925 had 2 small flags inserted in her flagpoles on the sides of her headlamp. Together all 4 engines were looking great, and were ready to go when Chris climbed back into Katie Belle’s cab.

Chris: ALRIGHT EVERYONE, LET’S ALL BLOW OUR WHISTLES AND RING OUR BELLS BEFORE WE HIGH BALL!!!!!!!!

Everyone then yanked on their whistle and bell chords, and the sounds soon filled the air. To the train guys it sounded as magnificent as a symphony orchestra and pipe organ, but to locals it was nothing but annoying and a nuisance. The whistle blowing and bell ringing was so loud that Alex, Aaron, Mike, Nina, and Wendy all came running over to the warehouse, and they all couldn’t believe their eyes at what they saw.

Mike: DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron & Alex: THAT IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: ALRIGHT EVERYONE, HIGH BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And with that, Big Joe then released the whistle chord while Robert continued to ring the bell and opened up the firing valve and atomizer valve all the way. Big Joe Then released the brakes and eased the throttle open and McCloud 18 steamed out of the warehouse thundering with all her might as she pulled the heavy freight train full of tools and machinery.
Mike, Aaron, and Alex then got out their cameras, cell phones, and video recorders as they watched the mighty Baldwin Makoto thunder out of the warehouse, and steam into the down town area. Once she was on the mainline, Big Joe then opened her throttle all the way, and McCloud 18 was highballing at her top speed of 44 miles per hour.

Chris: NEXT!!!!!!

Jack Anderson then released his whistle while Jack Verdi continued to ring the bell, and open up the firing valve and atomizer valve all the way. Jack Anderson then released the brakes, eased the throttle open, and Number #4466 then thundered out of the warehouse with her small freight train. Shortly after she was steaming through the downtown district, and it wasn’t long until UP number #4466 was on the mainline and highballing up to 30 miles per hour.

Mike: AWWWWWWWW MAN!!!!!! THIS IS SO INCREDIBLE!!!!!! I HAVE JUST DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN!!!!!

Aaron & Alex: ME TOO!!!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: WE HAVE NEVER SEEN A STEAM LOCOMOTIVE OPERATE BEFORE IN OUR LIVES AND THIS IS JUST WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: NEXT!!!!!!!!

Tom: YOU GOT IT!!!!!!

Tom then let go of his whistle chord while Doug continued ringing the bell, and opened up his firing and atomizer valves all the way. Tom then released the brakes, bumped his throttle open, and without any hesitation, the Graham County Shay number #1925 came thundering out of the warehouse with her pistons pounding loudly. Though 1925 wasn’t going very fast, the sound she generated made it seem like she was going 80 miles per hour. 1925 then made her way through the downtown district, and it wasn’t long until she was on the mainline and Tom bumped her throttle open all the way highballing the beautiful shay at 21 miles per hour.

Chris: MY TURN!!!!!

Chris then released his whistle chord, released the brakes, eased the throttle open, and rolled Katie Belle and her train out of the warehouse until the last car was out. Chris then applied the brakes and stopped the train right when Katie Belle’s parlor car was just a few feet away from the roll up door.
Chris then climbed out of Katie Belle’s cab to get one last good look around when Mike, Aaron, Alex, Nina, and Wendy went running up to him.

Mike: DUDE!!! THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!

Aaron & Alex: THAT WAS UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

Nina & Wendy: YOU WERE SO RIGHT ABOUT THE 1925!!!! SHE WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Chris: I know, that was completely awesome, and Shay number 1925 is a very special engine. As you probably know about steam locomotives being one of the ultimate mechanical devices, then shay engines are probably the ultimate steam locomotives. How they work is different from that of Katie Belle, Union Pacific number #4466, and McCloud River Railroad number #18, which are conventional rod engines with side rods going back and forth. Graham County number #1925 is a locomotive known as a shay geared steam locomotive. How she works is, her boiler is off the center and is situated more on her left hand side to counter balance the weight of her massive 3 vertical cylinders that she uses on her right hand side. Now those 3 vertical cylinders drive pistons that turn a massive crank shaft that then turns a propeller drive shaft that runs the length of the locomotive through multiple slip shafts, universal joints, O-rings, and bevel gears on all of the 6 wheels on the right hand side. This makes all 12 of her wheels drive wheels. Her left hand side doesn’t really show much because all of the moving parts as well as the fun action is on her right hand side, which makes the shay engine very unique. Best of all, 1925 is a 3-truck-shay, so you see a lot of action on her.

Mike: I HAVE NEVER SEEN A SHAY ENGINE OPERATE BEFORE IN MY LIFE, AND THAT WAS JUST UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

Aaron & Alex: SAME HERE!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: WE THOUGHT SHE WAS AMAZING TO LOOK AT WHEN IN PIECES BUT TO SEE HER ACTUALLY WORKING WAS JUST AMAZING!!!!!!

Chris: I know, and the 1925 is extra special because when the North Carolina Transportation Museum got her, she had just fallen off the side of a mountain and was the saddest thing. Just the sight of her, would make you want to cry. Her frame was mangled, parts of her boiler was missing, her cab was mutilated; overall she was just a mess. But over the course of 9 years, the Transportation Museum rebuilt and restored her to operating condition and she hauled the on-site Museum Trains for almost 10 years when water treatment failed and she lost a boiler tube. She was then placed on display in the roundhouse for years until a wealthy businessman bought her, and thought he could easily restore her, and it turned out to be too much money, so he threw her away. She ended up in the junkyard her, but we know the owner is broke, so he sold it to us for a dollar, and we brought her back to life. Now she is running on the mainline, and should be making her way to the convention center right about now.

The thought of the trains steaming by the convention center then dawned on Chris right then and there.

Chris: FLYIN FUCKEN SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!! I FORGOT TO TELL THE GUYS NOT TO GO HIGHBALLING BY THE CONVENTION CENTER BECAUSE OF THE CHEERLEADING COMPETITION MY SISTER AND HER FRIENDS CHRISSY AND LILLY ARE AT!!!!!! SHIT!!!!!!!!!!

Meanwhile over at the convention center, Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, and the rest of their squad along with many other cheerleaders were enjoying their lunch outside to convention center building when the ground started to shake.

Cheerleader: WHAT WAS THAT??!!!

Cheerleader: I DON’T KNOW!!!!!!!

Cheerleader: EARTH QUAKE????!!!!!!

Cheerleader: IDIOT WE DON’T GET EARTH QUAKES HERE!!!!!!

Lexi: * Thinks to self* OH NO, IT BETTER NOT BE YOUR DOING CHRIS!!!!!

But Lexi’s fear was right for former McCloud River Railroad came thundering down the mainline at 44 miles per hour with her pistons pounding, her bell ringing, and Big Joe tugging on her chord blowing the star brass 5-chime whistle with a very loud……….

WHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Big Joe: YEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVEN’T HIGH BALLED LIKE THIS IN A LONG TIME!!!!!!!

The Mighty Makoto, McCloud 18 then came thundering past the Convention Center, and the powerful winds coming off of McCloud 18 caused all of the cheerleaders skirts to go flying up and expose their bikini spankies.

Cheerleaders: *SCREAM* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! THAT WAS EMBARASSING!!!!!!!!!!!

But it was far from over, for the former Union Pacific number #4466 was only minutes behind the McCloud 18, and she too came thundering down the mainline at 35 miles per hour with her pistons pounding, her bell ringing and Jack Anderson tugging on her whistle chord blowing her Nathan 6-chime whistle loudly with the 4-whistle grade crossing blast.
Both Jack Anderson and Jack Verdi were bouncing up and down like crazy, but they didn’t mind for they were having the time of their lives.

Jack Anderson: NOW THIS IS HIGHBALLING!!!!!!

0-6-0 Switcher, UP Number #4466 was far from being a wimpy engine, for she too came thundering past the Convention Center, and was causing powerful winds to lift all of the cheerleaders skirts up once again.

Cheerleaders: *SCREAM* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But there was still one more train on the line, and the former Graham County Railroad Company Shay number #1925 was only minutes behind the 4466. She too was thundering down the mainline and was highballing at an astonishing speed of 22 miles per hour, which for a shay geared steam locomotive was unbelievably fast. The thundering on 1925 was the loudest of all 3 locomotives for those 3 massive vertical cylinders turning the massive crank shaft made her sound like she was going well over 100 miles per hour. With her loud stack talk, her bell was ringing, and Engineer Tom was yanking on the whistle chord and blowing her old single chime hooter whistle very loudly with the 4 whistle grade crossing blast.

TOM: HELL YES!!!!!!!!! NOW THIS IS HOW YOU RUN A SHAY!!!!!!!!!!

The powerful shay came thundering passed the Convention Center, and once again sent powerful winds causing all of the cheerleaders’ skirts to go flying up. Many guys however were loving every minute of it.

Cheerleaders: *SCREAM* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW MUCH MORE OF THIS CAN WE TAKE!!!!! THIS IS STARTING GET US DOWN!!!!!!

Guys: WHAT IS THIS THE RETURN OF THE STEAM ERA??????!!!!!!!!!!! WHATEVER IT IS, IT’S AWESOME AND WE GOT GOOD UPSKIRT SHOTS TOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheerleaders: OUR PRIDE IS RUINED AND NOW WE CAN’T GET MARRIED!!!!!!!

Lexi: CHRIS!!!!!!!!! CHRIS, YOU’RE TOAST!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris then got a call on his cell phone and it was none other than his pissed off little sister Lexi.

Chris: OH SHIT!!!!!!!! IT’S LEXI!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike: UH-OH!!!!!

Chris: I know what this is about. Those guys were highballing once they got on the mainline.

Juan: And once a train goes flying down the mainline, you stay away otherwise you’ll get nasty winds or worse.

Mike: You better not pick up that phone man, because you’ll be dead if you do.

Aaron: I wouldn’t want to talk to your sister now if I were you.

Alex: If that’s the case dump it Nina & Wendy. LOL!!!!

Nina: HEY, DON’T DUMP IT ON ME!!!!!!!!

Wendy: I’M NOT PART OF THIS, SO PLEASE KEEP ME OUT OF IT!!!!!!

Chris then picks up the phone, answers it, puts it on speaker and runs as far away from it as he could.

Lexi: CHRISSY!!!!!!! YOU IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!! YOUR GUYS CAME FLYING BY ON THEIR TRAINS, SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF US, AND SENT NASTY WINDS OVER CAUSING ALL OF OUR SKIRTS TO FLAP UP AND EXPOSE OUR SPANKIES!!!!!!! WE WERE SHOCKED, AND EMBARASSED BECAUSE MOST OF THE GIRLS ARE VERY INNOCENT AND BELIEVE IN THE MYTH WHERE IF THEIR UNDERWEAR IS SEEN BY A GUY, THEY CAN’T GET MARRIED!!!!!!! ALL EYES AND FROWNS ARE ON ME BECAUSE THEY KNOW ALL ABOUT YOU AND YOUR LOVE FOR TRAINS!!!!!!!! I KNEW YOU GUYS WERE GONNA BE RUNNING THE TRAINS OUT OF HERE, BUT I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WOULD BE SENDING THEM OUT SO SOON AND SO FAST!!!!!!!!! MY SQUAD CAN BE DISQUALIFIED ALL THANKS TO YOUR GUYS AND THEIR STUPID……….

Chris: Highballing?

Lexi: YEAH, THAT!!!!!!!

Chris: Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Girls, I am so terribly sorry this happened. I told the guys to high ball out of here once they got on the mainline so we can get to our destination in good timing, but I didn’t release that the convention center where your cheerleading completion was being held at, was sitting right next to the mainline. Normally the passenger trains only run during commuter hours between 6-10 a.m., and 3:30-6:00 p.m., with the local freight trains not running until around 7 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. With that being said, it’s normally not a problem for you girls, but with all 3 steam engines hot and ready to go, I figured to give them all a jump start, but I didn’t realize that they were running next to where you girls were until it was too late, and I should have told them not to high ball until the convention center was out of sight.

Lexi: WELL NO THANKS TO YOUR GUYS AND THERE STUPID WHATEVER IT IS YOU CALL IT, ALL OF THESE GIRLS GOT THE SHIT SCARED OUT OF THEM, ARE EMBARASSED ABOUT THEIR SKIRTS FLYING, AND NOW MY SQUAD CAN BE DISQUALIFIED!!!!!!!!! NOT TO MENTION THIS WAS TO BE MY LAST COMPETITION AND YOUR GUYS PROBABLY RUINED IT!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: Lexi, Can I talk to him?

Lexi: Really Chrissy? Now of all times, you wanna talk to him??!!!!

Chrissy: Yes Lexi, I do!!!! And I think you’re overreacting about this.

Lexi: OVERREACTING????!!!!!!!

Chrissy: Yes, and hey, it wasn’t Chris’s fault!!! He wasn’t at the controls of those trains.

Lexi: Uhhhhhh!!!!! Fine whatever??!!!!! Here you go!!

Lexi then reluctantly hands her cell phone over to Chrissy.

Chrissy: Hey Chris!!!

Chris: Hi!!!

Chrissy: Sorry, about that, Lexi can be a bit of a drama queen. *Giggles*

Lexi: WHAT??!!!! DRAMA QUEEN???!!!!!!

Chris: You’re telling me!!! LOL!!! I’ve dealt with it ever since she was born. LOL!!!!

Chrissy: Yeah, and what happened is not your fault, so don’t worry about it. Everyone’s okay right?

Cheerleaders: Yeah, we’re okay.

Chrissy: No one was hurt, and sure our skirts flapped up, and it’s just our spankies, it’s no different from seeing a bikini bottom given that the color is flat and universal. And we wear are spankies to cover our underwear, so it’s no big deal. Besides our skirts flap all the time when we’re doing air stunts.

Cheerleaders: Yeah, now that we think about it, it’s really no big deal.

Chrissy: Yeah, so don’t worry about it Chris. But I will say that those trains looked beautiful, especially that last one we just say.

Chris: Well the Graham County 1925 is a geared locomotive, so she has a lot of action to look at.

Chrissy: Yeah, it was so unusual, but still, the other ones were cool to watch as well for all of us girls have never seen a steam train before, and I believe they all thought it was cool, wasn’t it girls?

Cheerleaders: Yeah it was!!!! That last one thought was AMAZING!!!!!

Chris: LOL!!!!! Who doesn’t love seeing a shay in action???!!!!! LOL!!!!!

Chrissy: I’m gonna tell all the girls that you and your team restored them, and they looked magnificent Chris. You really are amazing, and so very talented.

Chris: I’m glad you think so Ms. Granger.

Chrissy: Chris please!!!! We’re now best friends, so call me Chrissy!!! I’ve told you this 100 times.

Cheerleaders: *Burst out laughing*

Chrissy: GIRLS!!!! What’s so funny??!!!!

Chris: Sorry, I keep forgetting.

Chrissy: It’s okay, and don’t worry about what happened, and I’m sure we won’t get disqualified. So anyway, how are you? How are things over there?

Chris: With all of the trains gone except our last 1, it’s rather quiet. LOL!!! We’ve been evicted out of the warehouse over here due to noise pollution, unauthorized installation of train tracks, and various paint and oil spills, and we had till today to get out, so we are leaving just in time.

Chrissy: CHRIS!!!! You bad boy you!!!!! *Giggles*

Chris: Very funny!!!!!

Chrissy: Well anyway, we’ll call you as soon as we can, I look forward to seeing you then.

Chris: Likewise.

Chrissy: C-ya soon Chris!!!!

Chris and Chrissy then hang up on each other.

Lexi: Chris is so lucky that you have a crush on him; otherwise I would have scolded him into the next century!!!!!

Chrissy: WELL, it wasn’t his fault!!!! Besides, you got to admit it. Those trains looked beautiful, didn’t they??!!!

Lexi: You’re right they did, and it wasn’t his fault, I just overreacted.

Lilly: We all did Lexi, not just you.

Chrissy: We’re girls, we’re supposed to overact.

Cheerleaders: Yeah!!!!

Lexi: Thanks girls, and you’re right. This is our last competition so LETS GIVE IT ALL WE’VE GOT!!!!!

Meanwhile back at the warehouse.

Chris: I dodged a bullet on that. But I won’t be so lucky when I have to tell them that the train crew threw their stuff out of my car and into number #4466’s box car, which means they won’t have access to their things for a while. And you don’t want to know how crazy Lexi goes if she doesn’t have a clean pair of panties after a cheer competition.

Nina: Wendy and I can relate, and if we can’t get to our stuff, it’s like………..

Wendy: It’s like a catastrophic disaster for us girls, so you better be careful. *Giggles*

Chris: Uh-Oh Boy!!!!! I’ll make it up to them. We’ll get them pizza, cake, and lots of other sweets because I know that Lexi goes crazy over deserts.

Wendy: AWESOME!!!!!! Just one thing though…..

Chris: What is it?

Wendy: I hate the taste of pickled plumbs. They’re so sour, and I can’t bare even the sight of them.

Chris: Same here, and I don’t think Chrissy and Lexi are too keen on it either, so not a problem. ☺

Wendy: YAY!!!!

Nina: I’M IN!!!!!!

Chris: Alrighty. Juan, you Mike, Aaron, Alex, Nina, and Wendy can go get pizzas and cakes. I’ll stay with the engine.

Juan: Alrighty!!! What kind should we get?

Chris: I love Pineapple, sausage, and ham with extra sauce, so get one of those in a large, as well as pepperoni, plain cheese, Mushroom & Tomato, and vegetarian. All larges. As for cakes, we’ll want 2 15 inchers, one of which being a strawberry, and the other one a princess cake.

Mike: Got it!!!

Chris then hands the guys $150.00 dollars to pay for everything for everything.

Chris: Here’s the money, and if you get change, get other things that are to your liking.

Mike: SWEET!!!!!! I’ll get a good shot of Vodka and lots of beer.

Chris: Mike, I understand that you’re an alcoholic, but we have girls with us, so you need to go easy on the booze.

Mike: Sure, no worries.

Chris then hands $25 dollars to Nina and Wendy.

Chris: Here is money for sweets girls. I understand that this transition is very hard on you 2, but know that we’ll always be here for, and don’t hesitate to ask us for anything.

Nina: AWWWWWW!!!!! Chris, are you sure?

Chris: Of course!!!!

Wendy: But you really shouldn’t be throwing your money away.

Chris: I know, but still, I want you girls to be happy and enjoy yourselves. Sure this will be a strenuous move, but know that I care about both of you. Not only as a boss, but also as a friend.

Wendy: You’re really sweet Chris, and thank you.

Chris: No problem. Just make sure that Mike doesn’t over do it on the booze. LOL!!!!

Nina & Wendy: Don’t worry we will!!! *GIGGLES*

Everyone then heads off to the nearby pizza parlor and bakery while Nina and Wendy go to the near by candy store. Chris stays behind with Katie Belle, and oils her up in preparation for a strenuous run.
15 minutes later everyone then returns with the pizzas, and cakes, while the Nina and Wendy got themselves sweets, and Mike got himself loads of booze.

Chris: Alright!!! You guys got everything you needed?

Everyone: Yep!!!! We sure did!!!!!

Nina: Thank you so much for the money for sweets!!!!!

Wendy: Yeah, that was the sweetest thing anyone’s ever done for us.

Chris: Anytime girls.

Chris then notices all the Vodka, Beer, and many other bottles of Alcohol Mike was carrying with him.

Chris: Mike!!!!!! You used the change to buy up a liquor store?

Mike: I DID!!!!! LOL!!!!!! There was plenty of change, and since this will be a long trip, I had to get ahold of as much alcohol as I could.

Chris: Mike!!!! Please note that we have girls on this trip, and 2 of them are not even 13!!!!!! And I thought I told you to go easy on the BOOZE!!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: *GIGGLES*

Mike: Hey, I’m gonna need my fix!!!!

Chris: Alright, just don’t over drink and get yourself drunk!!! Also note that we will be staying the night in 5 star hotels with restaurants full of cocktails, so it’s not like they’ll be a shortage.

Mike: I get it, so no worries!!!

Just then Chris got a call on his cell phone from Chrissy.

Chris: Hello……

Chrissy: Hey Chris!!!! It’s Chrissy!!!!

Chris: Hey, what’s up??!!!!

Chrissy: Well we just finished our competition and………..

Chris: How did you do?

Chrissy: WE GOT SECOND PLACE!!!!!

Chris: THAT’S GREAT!!!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Chrissy: THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH CHRIS!!!! THAT MEANS A LOT!!!!!!

Chris: You and Lexi worked hard for this, so you 2 should be proud.

Chrissy: OMG!!!! YOU HAVE NO IDEA!!!!!! But Lexi is having a hard time saying good bye to all the girls right now, and so is Lilly………

Chris: I completely understand Ms. Granger. You and Lilly have been living here for a very long time, as have Lexi and I. I’m really gonna miss this place and everyone who works here as well.

Chrissy: Yeah, me too…….. I’m gonna tell the girls good bye, and I’ll put you on with Lilly.

Chris: I completely understand, there is no problem.

Chrissy then handed her phone to her sister Lilly, while she went to say good bye to the rest of her cheer squad with Lexi.

Lilly: Hey Chris!!!!!!

Chris: Hello Lilly.

Lilly: How are you?

Chris: I’m ready to leave, as are the rest of my friends. How are you?

Lilly: I’m alright, just very sad that Chrissy and I have to say good bye.

Chris: I understand.

Lilly: But she and I look forward to spending more time with you and Lexi. We’re also grateful that you’re getting us a beautiful apartment to live in while you search for a house for all of us to live in. We can’t thank you enough. You’re so sweet Chris, it’s no wonder that Chrissy has………

Chris: Has what?

Lilly: Has taken a liking to you and sees you as her new best friend. You’re very special to her, and to me. And Chris I mean this………..

Chris: Yes?

Lilly: Promise me that we’ll always be friends.

Chris: I promise sweetie.

Lilly: Thank you. That means a lot to me, and it will mean a lot to Chrissy because she really likes you.

Chris: LOL!!!! You’re just saying that, but I’ll buy it for now. Anyways, when would you like me to come by and pick you girls up?

Lilly: No I am not just saying that, she does like you, and come by and pick us up anytime.

Chris: If you say so, and I’ll be right over.

Chris then got off the phone with Lilly, and climbed in the cab of Katie Belle before giving 4 short blasts on the whistle.

Chris: Alright Everyone!!!!! Our departure begins now!!!!

Everyone then got on board, and walked back to the parlor car with all the pizzas, and cakes while Mike stocked the fridge with all of his booze.
Juan then climbed into Katie Belle’s cab while Chris picked up his radio microphone.

Chris: Alright everyone what’s the word?

Everyone: ALL ABOARD!!!!!

Chris: HIGH BALL!!!!

Juan then opens up the firing and atomizer valves all the way and rings the bell while Chris then gives 2 blasts on Katie Belle’s whistle, releases the brakes, eases the throttle open, and Katie Belle gets rolling.
Slowly but surely, Katie Belle and her train make their way through the downtown area, but it’s not long until Katie Belle makes her way onto the mainline.
Chris then opens the throttle more and notches the Johnson bar back a little, and allows Katie Belle’s speed to climb up to 25 feet per second.
Chris didn’t want Katie Belle go flying because he knew that he had to stop outside of the Convention Center but he wasn’t looking forward to having to deal with his sister Lexi.

Chris: I wish I could open the throttle all the way and get outta here.

Juan: Me too!!!! I wanna see just how fast this engine can go!!!!!

Chris: So do I, but you know we have to pick up my sister and her friends.

Juan: Yeah, I know.

Chris: And Ms. Granger saved my ass on the last stunt our guys have pulled but she won’t when they find out about the guys throwing all of the tolls in the trunk and throwing out the bags.

Juan: The latter wasn’t our idea in the first place.

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, and the rest of the cheerleading squad wait by curb when the sounds of a steam whistle are heard.


Lexi: That will be our lift girls.

Chrissy: Yeah, so this is good bye.

Chris then gives one long blast on the whistle followed by a short blast with a ……….

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOO!!!!

Juan then rang the bell with a…….

CLANG!!!!! CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG!!!!! CLANG!!!! CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLAAAAAAANNNNNNNGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris then shut his throttle all the way, and slowly and gently applied the brakes allowing Katie Belle to gently coast to a full and complete stop. Chris then gives one blast on the whistle, signaling that Katie Belle and her train were safely stopped.
Chris and Juan then climb out of the cab while Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly say good by to their cheerleading squad.

Lexi: Girls, it’s been fun while it lasted but it’s time Chrissy, Lilly, and me to go.

Chrissy: We’ll miss all of you so very much.

Lilly: You’re like family to us girls, and we promise to always keep in touch.

Chris and Juan go around with temperature readers and discover that Katie Belle’s left rear drive axle bearing is running a little warm.

Chris: We’re getting a little hot on the rear left drive axle bearing, where as the one on the right is doing just fine.

Juan: Yeah, but maybe it just needs some breaking in.

Chris: Maybe. But we should still keep an eye on it.

Chris and Juan then pour some cold water onto the warm drive wheel, and add more oil to the rear left drive axle bearing.
Meanwhile some of other cheerleaders marvel at the beauty of the little engine. None of them have ever seen a real life steam locomotive before, and to see one up close under full steam was something unknown to them.

Cheerleader: WOW!!!!! THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Cheerleader: WOW!!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN ONE OF THESE BEFORE!!!!

Cheerleader: HOW DOES THIS WORK??!!!!

Cheerleader: WOW!!!! JUST FEEL THE HEAT AND VIBRATION FROM THIS THING!!!!

Cheerleader: Katie Belle, was this named after Katelynn?

Chris: Yes she was, but for some reason she upped and vanished and our relationship has dispersed.

Cheerleader: That’s very sweet of you, but I’m soooo sorry to hear about her.

Cheerleader: Yeah, she was an awesome cheerleader, and a great friend.

Cheerleader: One day she decided to quit, which was a surprise to us because we knew how much she loved cheerleading.

Cheerleader: Next thing we hear is that she is cutting class, and isn’t talking to anyone.

Cheerleader: Whatever happened to her, remains a mystery.

Chris: Yeah, Lexi and Chrissy told me everything.

Cheerleader: We’re sorry about what happened, and we all wish you well. And Lexi wasn’t lying when she told us how handsome you are.

Chris: Really??!!!

Cheerleader: Yeah. Lexi really looks up to you, and Chrissy really likes you; A LOT!!!

Chris: Okay.

Lilly then instantly sets her eyes on Juan, and thinks he is perfect at first site. Lilly then runs up to him and introduces herself.

Lilly: Hey!!!!

Juan: Hello, I don’t think I’ve met you, but my name’s Juan and I’m Chris’s life long friend as well as your fireman.

Lilly: Awesome!!!! I’ve heard about you!!! You’re the one who keeps Chris updated in the phone calls.

Juan: Yep, that’s me.

Lilly: AWESOME!!!!! My name’s Lilly, and I’m Chrissy’s younger sister.

Juan: Nice to meet you Lilly.

Lilly: It’s nice to meet you too!!!! I sure hope we can be friends because you seem like a great guy.

Juan: Thanks!!! I’d be happy to!!!

Lilly then blushes and instantly beams. Chrissy and all the other cheerleaders take one look and giggle for they saw that Lilly had probably laid her eyes on her first love.

Nina and Wendy then disembark the train and introduce themselves to all the cheerleaders, and they are instantly befriended. Aaron, Alex, and Mike disembark as well, but Chris wasn’t too happy with Mike holding a bottle of Vodka.

Chris: MIKE WHAT ARE YOU DOING??!!! I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO GO EASY ON THE BOOZE!!!!

Mike: Hey, gotta enjoy a nice shot before we hit the road.

Chris: Do you know that all of these girls are under age?? Bringing out a bottle of Vodka is not a good influence on them!!!!

Nina, Wendy, Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, and all of the other cheerleaders then burst out laughing.

Chris: Girls, what’s so funny??!!!! He’s 2 and ½ years older than me and should know better!!! He shouldn’t be drinking Vodka in front of a bunch of minors.

All the girls continue to laugh and they all gather around Katie Belle, with Chris, Juan, Mike, Aaron, and Alex. Lilly then gets our her camera, sets it up on a bench, stands next to Juan, the camera flashes.

Lexi: Alright girls. This is good bye.

Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly then hug all of the girls from their cheer squad, and it’s not long until all of the girls start crying.

Chris: Ugh-Oh Boy. This can take a while.

Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly then say their good byes, before climbing aboard Katie Belle’s train, and sitting in the front open air passenger car behind the water tank car which was right behind the locomotive.

Nina, Wendy, Aaron, Alex, and Mike then join them while Chris and Juan climb back into Katie Belle’s cab.

Chris then releases the brakes, gives 3 blasts on the whistle, throws the Johnson Bar in reverse, eases the throttle open, and Katie Belle backs her train up a few hundred feet.

Chris: We’re gonna give these girls a Good Bye they’ll never forget, how we’re gonna do that is, we’ll give them a run by.

After Katie Belle backs up a good ways, Chris then applies her brakes, shuts her throttle and brings her to a full and complete stop. Chris then throws the Johnson Bar forward and picks up his microphone.

Chris: Alright everyone, now what’s the word?

Everyone: ALL ABOARD!!!!!!

Chris: HIGH BALL!!!!!

Juan then opens the firing valve and atomizer valve wide open and rings the bell, while Chris gives 2 long blasts on the whistle, releases the breaks, eases the throttle wide open, and Katie Belle takes off.
Chris then notches up the Johnson bar, and it isn’t long until Katie Belle comes flying down the mainline at 64.5 feet per second.
Katie Belle’s pistons were pounding, her firebox was vibrating, her bell was ringing, and Chris was tugging on her Western Pacific 5-chime whistle with a very loud……

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

All of the cheerleaders then jumped, waved, and cheered, as Katie Belle highballed passed the Convention Center. Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly Belle then waved back smiling brightly to give their final good bye.
Katie Belle then steamed off into the distance, and all of the cheerleaders walked back inside the convention center to collect their trophy once Katie Belle was out of site.

Chris: We had to give them a good bye they would never forget, and since all the other 3 engines high balled passed them, it would have been unfair if we didn’t. LOL!!!!

Juan: Good point!!!!!

Lexi then walks into the baggage car to get her make up remover and sees that Volvagia has her windows pitched black.

Lexi: Volvagia, why are your windows all black???

Volvagia wouldn’t answer; she just stood still and looked over at Lexi.

Lexi: Tinted windows doesn’t sound like something you or Chris would do, but that doesn’t matter. We’re going enjoy a whole new life together, now be a good girl and open up.

Volvagia doesn’t respond, but instead locked all of her doors including her trunk and shut her headlamps with her small shades as tight as she could.

Lexi: I said open up Volvagia. Come on, be a good girl and open up!!!!

Volvagia then buckles down and lowers her suspension.

Lexi: Volvagia what has gotten into you? I’ve known you since Mommy got you. Heck, I even rode in you when I was a 3-year-old toddler. This isn’t like you.

Chrissy and Lilly then walk into the baggage car to see what was going on?

Chrissy: Lexi, what’s going on?

Lilly: Yeah, what’s up?

Lexi: Volvagia is not opening up her trunk for me. All I want is to remove my make up. Sure it would be nice to change my underwear too, but that can wait till when we get to our hotel. I just want to remove my make up, but she won’t open.

Chrissy: Who’s Volvagia?

Lexi: That’s the car, and she’s kinda like a person.

Lilly: It’s a she???

Lexi: Yes, it is. Chris has had her since he got his driver’s license at 17, and he and I were supposed to share her once I got mine, but I’m still yet to get my driver’s license and I have no idea how to drive a stick shift.

Chrissy: You’re not alone. I can’t drive one to save my life.

Lilly: I’ve never driven a car before, so I too wouldn’t have a prayer.

Lexi: Anyways, the car is as alive as you and me, and she’s not opening up her trunk.

Chrissy: Maybe you should try opening up the trunk yourself.

Lexi: I don’t like doing that, because she only lets Chris do it. And whenever we check in at 5 star hotels, Chris always has to open up her trunk or else she gets moody.

Chrissy: Okay, but maybe something’s bothering her.

Lilly: I’ll talk to her.

Lexi: Do what you have to because I don’t want my make up to melt off in this heat.

Lilly then walks up to Volvagia and tries to have a talk with her.

Lilly: Hey girl, what’s wrong? Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s okay. It can’t be anything serious can it?

Volvagia doesn’t respond, but Lilly gets an idea in her head and finds the perfect thing to say.

Lilly: You wanna know something?? My big sister Chrissy has a huge crush on Chris, and wants to marry him.

Volvaiga then gets up with a start, uncovers her headlamps, raises herself up, clears the tint off of her windows opens her trunk, and honks her horn.

Volvagia: BEEEEEEEEEPP!!!!!

Lexi then saw that all of their bags were gone and had been replaced by a bunch of tools. Chrissy heard what Lilly had told Volvagia and was not happy about it.

Lexi: OH, SO THAT’S WHAT YOU WERE HIDING???!!!!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU AND CHRIS WOULD DO THIS YOU STUPID CAR!!!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: LILLY DON’T GOING SAYING SUCH THINGS!!!!! YES I DO HAVE A CRUSH ON CHRIS, BUT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO GO THAT EXTREME!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: CHRIS………….CHRIS YOU’RE TOAST!!!!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: LILLY I’M GONNA KICK YOUR LITTLE BEHIND!!!!!!!!!

Lilly: UH-OH!!!!!

Lilly then runs away as fast as she could from Chrissy, while Chris gets a terrible vibe through his spine.

Chris: Why do I get a bad feeling???!!!!!

Lexi: CHHHHHRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chapter 7

Journey To A Magical World

Lexi: Let me get this straight you guys!!!! So you’re telling me that Big Joe, Tom, Jack Anderson, and all the other train guys took our bags out of Volvagia’s trunk and THREW THEM INTO A BOX CAR???!!!!!

Aaron: Yes, unfortunately that’s exactly what happened.

Alex: It wasn’t our idea, nor was it Chris’s.  They couldn’t find any room for the tools in any of the freight cars.

Mike: Chris tried to have the tools thrown into one of the cabooses, but Tom said it would be a tripping hazard.

Aaron: But because your car can get its rear seats folded down and can partially transform itself into a pickup truck, it was just enough room to the guys to put the tools in.  

Alex: As for your bags, there was just enough room in one of Union Pacific number #4466’s boxcars to take them, so they were thrown on UP 4466’s train.  

Aaron: Please know that your stuff is good and secure, and Chris tried hard to get those tolls put elsewhere, but he and Volvagia were powerless.

Chrissy: There you go again Lexi, blaming Chris without hearing the full story.

Lexi: I know………. I wish I would stop doing that.  It’s a bad habbit I got from my older sister Alexis because she did it all the time, and Chris hated that.  I told her not to blame him without hearing the full story and now I’m turning out to be like her.  Some bad sister I am turning out to be.

Lilly: Don’t say that.  You know that Chris still loves you no matter what, and no matter what, he’ll always be your big brother.

Lexi: I know, I just feel terrible for picking up Alexis’s bad habit.  I also don’t mean to have a brother complex, but he’s all I’ve got now since I’ve lost both my parents and my sister.

Chrissy: I know how you feel because Lilly’s all I got now, and I forgive you for saying what you just said.  As true as it is about my Crush on Lexi’s brother, just don’t say that out loud again, or say that I want to marry him.

Lilly: I had to do something to get her to open up her trunk.

Chrissy: I will admit, that it was clever of you; just don’t do it again.  Okay?

Lilly: I promise Sissy.

Chrissy: Great!!!

Lexi: That still leaves with the fact that our stuff is on a train that is 2 trains in front of us, and possibly on a different line.  This means that I might not get clean underwear until it’s very late tonight.

Chrissy: I know what you mean given how sweaty it gets after cheering so hard.

Lilly: Yeah, and both your panties and spankies stick to your butt and feel gross.

Lexi: Yeah, and we’ll probably stay like this for a while.

Mike: You think that’s a problem, I might run out of booze!!!!!! And that stuff was expensive too!!!!

Aaron: Mike, how much have you been drinking??!!!

Mike: I’m on my second bottle, but I know I’ll easily go through all of them depending on how long our trip takes.

Alex: Chris told you to go easy on the booze, and 2 bottles of Vodka is more than enough!!!!

Mike: Hey man, I need to get my fix!!!

Lexi: Mike, give me that please.

Mike: Lexi, you know that you’re underage right?

Lexi: MICHAEL, I SAID GIVE ME THAT!!!!!!

Lexi then grabs the bottle of Vodka out of Mike’s hand, puts it in the parlor car’s fridge, and places a lock on the refrigerator’s door.

Lexi: There, problem solved!!!!

Mike: WHAT LEXI??!!!!!

Lexi: Chris told you to go easy on your consumption, but he’s not here to keep an eye on you, and as his baby sister, I will do it on his behalf.  No more than 1 bottle per day.  No ands, ifs, or buts Mike!!!  As for the key……

Lexi then places the key in the side of her panties under her spankies.

Lexi: You won’t be getting them because you know I will scream and beat the crap out of you if you do.  

Chrissy: And you’ll be dealing with Lilly and I if you try messing with her.

Lilly: Yeah, so don’t try anything.

Mike: AWWWWWWWW MAAAAAANNNNN!!!!!! This just isn’t my day.

Nina: You also won’t be too happy to know this, but Mike bought all the contents……

Wendy: Using Chris’s money!!!!!!

Aaron: The change from the $150.00 bucks Chris gave us to pay for the pizzas and cakes.

Alex: And that was a good $45.00 he spent on buying up a liquor store.

Lexi: Yeah, you’re not getting any more alcohol until 2 days from now after hearing this.

Mike: WHAT???!!!!!

Lexi: It wasn’t your money you used to buy the stuff; it was my brothers, and for that, your punishment is to not get a single drop of Alcohol for at least 2 days.

Mike: ARE YOU SHITTING ME?????!!!!!!

Lexi: That is another thing I have a problem with!!!! There will be no swearing on this trip!!!!  Chrissy, Lilly, and I will not tolerate it.  I don’t care if it’s from you Mike, or from Alex, Aaron, Juan, or even Chris.  Heck, Chrissy, Lilly, and I don’t even want to hear it from Nina and Wendy.  If anyone curses, I’ll slap you, and that especially goes for you Mike.

Mike: You know that I’m older than all of you, and I’m 10 years older than you Lexi.

Lexi: That doesn’t matter, because I have the key to your alcohol, and you need this key in order to access your alcohol.  If you use any bad language, you won’t be getting your hands on the key.

Mike: DANG IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Nina: Wendy and I are with you on the cursing thing.

Wendy: Yeah, we also hate hearing those words, so we’re on your side.

Lexi: Good!!! Girls, we’re gonna have a lot of fun on this trip.

Aaron: Hey, it works for me.

Alex: Same here.  Now lets eat some pizza because I’m starving.

Aaron: Yes me too!!!!

Lexi: Good plan guys because I haven’t eaten a single thing since this morning.  While all the other girls enjoyed a nice lunch, Chrissy, Lilly, and I didn’t get anything, so we’re starving.

Aaron then opens up the pizza box and gets out 8 slices.  2 plain cheese, 2 pepperoni, 2 of the pineapple sausage & ham, and 2 of the mushroom and tomato.  
Alex then gets another 8 slices with 2 of each.

Aaron & Alex: We’ll give these to Chris and Juan, and will be back for our slices.

Lexi: Awesome!!!!!  Be sure to hurry back you 2!!! You don’t want your pizza to get cold.

Aaron & Alex then walk over to the water car, when Chris and Juan see them with the pizza.

Chris: That’s our lunch; I’ll be right back.

Chris then climbs on top of Katie Belle’s tender tank, before climbing down her ladder and on top of the wooden frame of the water tank car.

Aaron & Alex: Your lunch you guys.

Chris: Awesome!!! Thanks.

Chris then gets the plates of pizzas walking back and forth between Katie Belle’s tender tank and the front open air passenger car unit he finally places the last 2 plates of pizza on Katie Belle’s tender tank.

Chris: Alright!!! Thanks guys!!!

Aaron & Alex: Anytime Chris!!! We’ll be back with Cake in a few.  

Aaron & Alex then walked back to the parlor car while Chris climbed back up Katie Belle’s ladder on the back of her tender tank before climbing back on top of her tender tank, and jumping back down into the cab.

Chris: Alright Juan, dinner is served.

Juan: Awesome!!! Thanks Bro.

Chris: No problem!!!

Chris and Juan then enjoy their pizza while Katie Belle steams her way down the main line.  It isn’t long until Chris has to slow Katie Belle down to 10 miles per hour for the Dual gauged mainline soon ends.

Chris: That’s weird.  The line should be dual gauged for a farther ways.

Juan: Looks like we have no choice but to take a narrow gauge branch line.

Katie Belle then gets diverted onto the narrow gauge branch line for there was nowhere else for her and her train to go.

Chris: Okay, so this narrow gauge branch line goes on for at least 100 miles, so we’re talking about not arriving in Detroit until probably in the morning.  The girls are gonna kill us if that case happens.

Juan: Good thing there’s plenty of tooth brushes, tooth paste, and bottle water in the parlor car.

Chris: And hair brushes, shaving cream and hair paste too.  Otherwise we’d be in big trouble.

Chris then picks up the radio microphone and makes the unfortunate announcement.

Chris: Bad news everyone!!!!  The Dual gauging on the main line has ended and this narrow gauge line goes on for at least 100 miles.  With that being said, there will be points where I am going to have to keep our speed restricted to 10 miles per hour.  Worst case we might not be in Dearborn until Morning.

Lexi: WHAT???!!!!!!  

Chris: If the mainline was still dual gauged, we could have continued going 64 feet per second and been there by 8:30 p.m., but given our circumstances, it can take a lot longer.  We do have lots of toiletries for all of you to use in the parlor car, but we apologize for any inconvenience.

Lexi: JUST GREAT!!!! I’m gonna be in gross sweaty cheer uniform until tomorrow!!!!

Chrissy: You’re not alone on that Lexi.

Chrissy then opened up her backpack and got out her make up.

Chrissy: I made sure to bring plenty of make up in case of emergencies.

Lexi: WOW!!!!! Chrissy, you’re a lifesaver.

Lilly: Isn’t she??!!!!

Chrissy: Like you, I can’t live without my make up, so I always carry an emergency back up kit just in case. *Giggles*

Lexi: You’re amazing Chrissy!!!!

Chrissy: Thank you!!!! *Giggles*

Just then Aaron and Alex return to the parlor car.

Aaron: Well, Chris and Juan should be good to go for a little while.

Alex: Yep.  But you should have seen Chris hop off the back of his engine to get over to the front passenger car for pizza!!!  That was scary.

Aaron: Yeah, no joke!!!!  

Lexi: What do you mean??!!!

Aaron: He was climbing on top of the tender tank, then climbing down the tender tank’s ladder, jumping onto the tank car’s wooden deck and walked across it like it was a normal pathway.

Alex: Yeah, he made it look easy, but on how the way this train rocks side to side, and the fact we were going over 30 miles per hour; I don’t know he does it.

Chrissy: HE DID WHAT?????!!!!!!!!

Lexi: I’M WITH YOU CHRISSY!!!!!!!

Lilly: ME TWO!!!!

Aaron: I just told you, he climbed off the back of his engine, walked across the tank car’s frame and did multiple back and forth trips to get the pizza!!!!

Lexi: WE HEARD YOU GUYS!!!!!!

Chrissy: WE CAN’T BELIEVE THAT HE WOULD DO SOMETHING SO DANGEROUS!!!!

Lilly: HE WON’T BE DOING THAT ANYMORE!!!!!

Aaron and Alex then grabbed 2 slices of each cake, and ran off to the front of the engine.

Lexi: HEY YOU GUYS GET BACK HERE!!!!!

Chrissy: DON’T TELL ME YOU’RE GONNA LET CHRIS DO THE DANGEROUS STUNT AGAIN!!!!

Lilly: YOU WEREN’T EXCUSED!!!!!!!

Aaron and Alex then come running up to the very front of the train, and both Chris and Juan see them.

Juan: Why are they running up?

Chris: Something’s up!!! I’ll talk to them.

Chris then climbs up onto Katie Belle’s tender tank, climbs down her ladder, and walks across the tank car’s deck.

Chris: Hey guys, what’s up?

Aaron & Alex: The cakes, that’s what’s up!!!

Aaron: Your sister and your girlfriend are on our tail, so take the cakes at once!!!!

Lexi: GUYS!!!!!!!

Alex: HURRY!!!!

Chris: GOT IT!!!!

Chris then grabs the cakes, and makes 2 back and forth trips putting the cake slices on Katie Belle’s tender tank before climbing up her ladder, and jumping off her tender tank back into her cab.
By the time Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly made their way to the front of the train, Chris was already safely back in the cab of his engine.

Chris: We’re only going 15 miles per hour so time to pick up the pace!!!!

Juan then opened the firing valve and atomizer valve while Chris opened up the throttle more and notched the Johnson Bar back, and the train picked speed back up to 52 feet per second.
Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly were not happy with Chris doing his dangerous stunt.

Lexi: YOU LET CHRIS DO THAT STUNT AGAIN, DIDN’T YOU??!!!!

Aaron & Alex: You didn’t tell us to stop him. Very Happy

Chrissy: UGH!!!!!!!!!!

Just then Katie Belle’s wheels spun like crazy.
Chris then shut his throttle, and Juan turned down the fire.

Chris: WHAT THE??!!!!!

Juan: Looks like some kind of an incline.

Chris: JUST GREAT!!!! Now we’re gonna have to slow down and the girls won’t like that.

Chris then opened his throttle back up, but he couldn’t run Katie Belle over 17 feet per second, due to a grade incline of 1.5% percent.
Katie Belle started huffing and puffing as she struggled up the grade.
The grade then went up to a whopping 3% percent and Katie Belle’s wheels were slipping left and right as she struggled to haul her train.

Chris: THERE IS NO MENTION ABOUT A GRADE ON THIS GPS!!!!!

Juan: NOR OF ANY ELEVATIONS, YET WE ARE CLIMBING HIGHER AND HIGHER!!!

Katie Belle slowed down to going no more than 7 feet per second as she continued huffing and puffing up the grades.  She then soon climbed higher and higher into the mountains

Chris: THESE MOUNTAINS ARE NOT EVEN ON THE SAT NAV!!!!!!

Juan: AND AREN’T THE STATES OF OHIO AND MICHIGAN MOSTLY FLAT??!!!!

Chris: They do have some hills, and the Allegany Mountains, but NOTHING LIKE THIS!!!!

Katie Belle soon steams into a tunnel causing even more confusion to Chris, Juan, and everyone else on her train.

Lexi: By the way, why are we in a mountainous area?

Chrissy: There are no major hills between Ohio & Michigan!!!

Lilly: Yeah, so what’s up with this??!!!

Nina: Also what is with this tunnel?

Wendy: WAAAAAHH!!!!!!! I HATE THE DARK!!!!!

Mike: AWWWWW MAN!!!!!! I’M DYING WITHOUT THE BOOZE!!!!!!!

Aaron: Enough Already Mike!!!!  

Alex: Chris told you to go easy on it, but you didn’t and Lexi took the keys away.

Clouds of smoke and steam reflected off the tunnel ceiling as Katie Belle’s bark of exhaust echoed off the tunnel walls.
Juan then rang the bell as Katie Belle continued steaming through the tunnel as it went on for miles and miles.

Chris: Okay!!!! Cylinder cocks open!!!

Chris then opened the cylinder cocks causing steam to hiss out of the pistons, as Juan opened up the atomizer and firing valves which caused the firebox to rumble and vibrate as Kaite Belle continued to make her way through the tunnel.

Lexi: Okay, how much longer are we gonna be in here??!!!  It feels like there’s no end to this!!!!

Chris then turns on Katie Belle’s headlamp and something strange looked like it was in front of the Train.

Juan: WHAT THE HELL IS THAT??!!!!

Chris: IT LOOKS LIKE SOME KIND OF………….

Just then a mysterious voice is heard…………..

Aleasha: YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN, CHRISTIAN ALLEN MANDEZ!!!!!!  YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN BY FATE!!!!!

Chris: IT’S A PORTAL!!!!!!!

Chris then yanks on Katie Belle’s whistle chord while a bright light flashes in front of Katie Belle as she and her train steam through a mysterious portal to a new world.

Chapter 8

Enter The Magical Railway Line!!!!

Katie Belle picked up speed and steamed faster and fast as she hauled her train through the mysterious portal.

Juan: WHERE THE HELL ARE WE GOING??!!!!

Chris: BEATS ME!!!! AND WHAT DID SHE MEAN THAT I WAS HAND CHOSEN??!!!!

Katie Belle the steamed out of the portal and into a beautiful world of Magic where the night sky was lit up with beautiful stars, the flowers were huge and very colorful, and the rails shined in a beautiful starlight Chrome as they glowed.

Lexi: WOW!!!!! WHERE ARE WE???!!!!

Chrissy: THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Lilly: I DON’T THINK WE’RE IN OHIO ANYMORE!!!!!

Nina: WHAT IS THIS PLACE??!!!!

Wendy: WHY DOES IT LOOK SO FAMILIAR???!!!!!!

Katie Belle then steamed along side a beautiful lake where the water was a beautiful sapphire and aqua blue color, and city lights showed up on the other side of the lake.

Chris: What is this place!!!!!

Just then the mysterious voice was heard again.

Aleasha: You have been called here after a long absence Chris………..As well as you Chrissy, Lilly, and Lexi; You have all been called here!!!!

Katie Belle continued to steam along side the lake with the light of her flickering and roaring fire reflecting off the beautiful lake water.

Aleasha: This way!!!!!! I will guide you this way!!!!

Chris: Okay, whatever you say!!!!

Katie Belle and her train soon steamed into a tunnel that ended up being half open on one side and exposing the backside of a water fall.

Aleasha: The station is less than 5 minutes away, so you 2 must slow down.

Chris: Got it!!!

Aleasha: TREASTLE AHEAD, AND IT’S HUGGING THE SIDE OF A CLIFF WITH A RESTAURANT THAT IS NEXT TO IT!!!! YOU MUST SLOW DOWN AND TURN OFF YOUR HEADLAMP!!!!!

Chris: OKAY!!!!!!!! JEEZE!!!!!

Chris then slowly applies Katie Belle’s brakes, and slows her down to 17 feet per second.

Aleasha: YOU’RE STILL GOING TOO FAST!!!!!

Chris: WHAT???!!!!!! IT’S 12 MPH I’M GOING!!!!!!!

Chris then notches the Johnson Bar into the corner, slows her down to 13 feet per second.

Aleasha: SHUT OFF YOUR HEADLAMP OR YOU’LL………

Katie Belle then emerged out of the tunnel with her headlamp shining brightly and blinding multiple guests who were sitting down enjoying their dinner.

Aleasha: Blind dinner guests in the eyes!!

Dinner Guests: HEY!!!! WE’RE EATING HERE!!!!! TURN OFF YOUR HEAD LAMP YOU MORON!!!!!

Chris: WHOOPS!!!!! SORRY!!!!!!

Chris then shuts off Katie Belle’s headlamp and she steams by the restaurant and along the trestle as it hugs the cliff.

Chris: WOW!!!!! This is very beautiful!!!!

Aleasha: This beautiful lake is very pure with water clean and sweet enough to drink from. Because of its purity, it glows beautiful sapphire, aqua, and emerald colors at night.

Chris: Never would have thought that.

Aleasha: The Magical City gets its water supply from the lake, and the water has been known to heal wounds, cure cancer, keep people young, and extend life spans. Part of this world’s magic supply comes from this lake.

Chris: That makes sense. Now who is this person who is speaking?

Juan: I have no idea who she is, but we should soon find out.

Meanwhile, Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly were completely blown away by what they were seeing.

Lexi: WOW!!!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING THIS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Chrissy: NEITHER HAVE I!!!!!

Lilly: BUT WHERE ARE WE???!!!!!!

Mike: IS THERE BOOZE HERE???!!!!! I SURE HOPE THERE IS!!!!!

Lexi: MICHAEL!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron: Geeze Mike, you’re impossible!!!!

Alex: Yeah, seriously Man!!!

Nina: What is it that makes it so addictive?

Wendy: I don’t know, but whatever it is, Mike sure has issues with it.

Nina: You said it Wendy.

Mike: Hey, what can I say??!!! I love my liquor!!! LOL!!!

Wendy: Yeah, a little too much if you ask me!!!

Nina: What’s so great about it anyway?

Alex: It actually tastes horrible if you ask me.

Aaron: Yeah, I do enjoy an alcoholic drink every now and then, but it’s not something I’d want to drink all the time.

Katie Belle then steams around the beautiful city area and soon a beautiful Victorian and Ornate Train Station comes into view.

Chris: Alrighty, a station is now in view so I guess we’ll be parking here for the night.

Aleasha: The station is not your train’s home, keep going.

Chris: Okay………… Looks like we’re not stopping here.

Chris then saw a water tower and thought it would be the perfect chance to take on some water.
Chris then picked up the microphone and radioed everyone.

Chris: Alrighty, we’re gonna be stopping here for a little while just to take on some water.

Juan then rang the bell while Chris notched the Johnson bar into the corner, shut his throttle, slowly eased the brakes, and Katie Belle gently coasted to a full and complete stop and she managed to line up perfectly with the water tower’s spout.
Chris then gave one blast on the whistle signaling that they have safely stopped before climbing on top of Katie Belle’s tender tank, opened up her water hatch, threw in some powdered chemical treatment into her tank, pulled down the water spout, and opened up the water tower’s main water valve on full blast to give Katie Belle a good drink. Juan then climbed out of Katie Belle’s cab, grabbed a large firehouse that was laying on the ground next to the water tower, attached the firehouse to Katie Belle’s auxiliary water tank car, opened the fire hose’s water valve and got water flowing into the tanker.
Juan then climbed back inside of Katie Belle’s cab, got the oilcan before climbing back out of the cab and oiling up Katie Belle’s rods.
Everyone on the train then disembarked to stretch their legs, while Lilly walked up to Juan and watched him oil up the locomotive.

Lilly: Hey Juan!!!! Mind if I watch what’s going on?

Juan: Sure, I don’t mind.

Lilly: YAY!!!!!! What is it you’re doing exactly?

Juan: I’m currently oiling up the rods and the external components on the cylinders. Chris on the other hand is topping off our water level so we have enough water to boil and make steam.

Lilly: I see. I can also feel that it’s VERY hot up here.

Juan: Oh yes it is. It’s even worse in the hot summer months in the blazing hot sun, but during the cold Winter Months it’s great. LOL All that heat is coming from a fire that is burning in the firebox area, and that fire boils the water into steam, and that’s how we go.

Lilly: That is so cool!!!!

Juan: I know!!!! Steam locomotives are very unusual machines, it’s like they’re alive given that all of the working components are on the outside unlike that of a car or modern Diesel locomotive.

Chris: Also steam locomotives do have personalities of their own. Their personalities are like that of you girls on your monthly periods. No offense, but it is that equivalent because they are very unpredictable. They have their good days, and they have their bad days. This one is a really nice engine, but she is a little finicky to fire, especially given that she has a firebox that is a little too small, so it’s a challenge to make the heat where as the other standard gauged engines are much larger with massive fireboxes and will heat up like no tomorrow.

Lilly: WOW!!!! That is interesting.

Just then Chrissy, and Lexi show up as the water tank and the tank car over flow with water.

Chris: Alrighty, it looks like we’re full.

Chrissy & Lexi: CHRIS, GET DOWN FROM THERE!!!!!!

Chris: Jeeze Girls, no need to worry!!!!

Chrissy: I know but it still gives us the creeps to see you up there!!!!

Lexi: Yeah, and I didn’t like know that you were running between the front passenger car and the butt of your engine using the small walk way on the……

Chris: Auxiliary water tanker?

Lexi: YEAH THAT!!!!! And doing it at high speeds!!!! It’s dangerous and you could have been killed.

Chris: Note that it’s not very difficult to carhop, and also that the water tender has safety grab rails. Not to mention that I need to be up here to pour water in this thing, and right now WATER IS OVERFLOWING EVERYWHERE!!!!!

Chris then shut off the tower’s water valve, lifted the spout off the tender tank, and closed up the water hatch.

Lexi: STILL, I FORBID IT!!!! NO MORE CAR HOPPING FROM NOW ON!!!!!

Chrrissy: I’m with her on this one.

Lilly: Me too!!!!

Chris: Okay, okay!!!!! I promise no more car hopping. Girls, don’t have a cow!!!!

Chris then climbed down Katie Belle’s tender tank ladder, walked over to the tank car, shut off the hose’s water valve, and detached the hose from the water tank car.
Chris then dragged the hose over to the locomotive’s rear left drive wheel, opened the water valve back up, and pours water on the locomotive’s rear left drive wheel. Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly follow Chris, and stand next to him as he performs the work.

Chris: The bearing may have been overheating, so we can’t be too careful.

Lexi: What happens if it gets too hot?

Chris: The bearing could crack, or worse, the wheel could sheer right off. Unfortunately this problem was not uncommon during the days of working class steam. Also this axle bearing has a tough job. This rear axle has to support the firebox area, and on this side, the wheel is also supporting the weight of our Westinghouse air compressor, so that is a lot of stress on this bearing. To top it off, the extreme heat from the firebox only makes the bearing hotter, so that’s another factor.

Chrissy: WOW!!!!! That’s crazy!!!!

Chris: Not really. It’s just something we have to keep an eye on because it’s very common, and it’ll just continue to happen one time or another. All we can do is, roll with it. Some breaking in is all it needs best case, but worst case, it’ll mean a day in the shop to swap out the bearing for a replacement.

Chrissy: WOW!!!! You really know your stuff Chris; it’s amazing!!!

Chris: Thanks, but someone has to look after these engines. They’re an important part of our history, and if we don’t look after them, who will?

Lexi: Good point!!!

Chris: There was a reason steam was phased out during the 50s and 60s and replaced by Diesel and Electric locomotives; these girls take a lot of hours, hard work, and dedication. Not to mention, there’s water stops, steam locomotives need more servicing and don’t have as many overhaul millage intervals that Diesels have, so it’s a labor of love rather than a practicality. But steam does have many other advantages over Diesel and electric locomotives.

Chrissy: What would they be if you don’t mind me asking?

Chris: Well, steam locomotives don’t pollute nearly as much for they burn far more of the toxic gases than that of a conventional diesel, and diesel engines have a lot more dirt, soot, and nasty chemical fumes in them even when well maintained. Not to mention steam locomotives are MUCH more powerful than that of a Diesel locomotive. McCloud River Railroad Makoto number #18 can haul up to 40 cars where as a conventional Diesel locomotive like that of a GP-30 which is about the same size as the 18, can barely handle 15 cars. A mainline freight Makoto like Southern Railway 4501 can haul up to 100 freight cars no problem, but a Dash-9 needs at least 2 to 3 other helper engines in order to haul that much. Also if you noticed Shay engine number 1925……

Lexi: You mean the one with the moving pistons?

Chris: Yes her; she was designed to climb grades as steep as 15 percent and curves as tight as 85 feet radius while hauling over 40 cars loaded with heavy logs, lumber, and trees around those curves and grades. If a Diesel engine tried that, its frame would break and its motors would blow up.

Chrissy: WOW!!!!!! I didn’t know that!!!!

Lilly: That is amazing!!!!

Chris: Not to mention, if we were to break down, I could get tools out of Volvagia’s trunk, and use pieces of scrap to make a quick repair and get us home and do a proper repair later on. If a Diesel breaks down, you are stranded and have to call for help. And if a cylinder gets damaged on this engine, I can just shut down the bad cylinder by disconnecting the main drive piston and valve gear on one side, and run us on the cylinder that is still good. There is no doing that on a modern diesel or electric locomotive because if you break down on those, you are stuck!!! However if we were to break an axle, we would also be stuck, but broken wheels are an exception. LOL!!! Speaking of wheels, do you have a temperature reading here Juan?

Juan then gets out the digital lazier temperature reader and points it at the left rear driver.

Juan: We’re not doing too bad, we’re around 82 degrees right now.

Chris: Okay. 70 would be more ideal, but 82 isn’t bad. If it got to 100, then we should worry.

Juan: Got it!!!!

Lexi: WOW!!!! I didn’t know that!!!!!! All this time, you knew so much, and I didn’t know a single thing. Mommy & Daddy, and Alexis pretty much kept us apart, and left me in the dark about a lot of things. It’s amazing that you know so much, yet it makes me sad that I didn’t know what you were doing behind closed doors and right now you’re the only family I’ve got.

Chris: Lexi Sweetie, there are a lot of things that kept us apart, and I should have been there for you more as a brother. I have been caught up in my passion for these old steam engines that I haven’t had a lot of time to be there for you. Also I guess it’s because that Mom, Dad, Alexis, and I fought a lot that I pretty much spent most of my time alone. Steam locomotives were the one thing I felt that I had. And with Katelynn vanishing without a trace, they were the only thing I felt I could turn to.

Lexi: I understand, but I want us to be best friends and understand each other the same way siblings do. I also promise to control my temper because I understand that you’re angrophobic, and so am I, yet I tend to fly off the handle anyway, but know that I still love you and care for you Chris.

Chris: And I too want us to get closer and promise to listen to your needs more. If you want or need anything, don’t hesitate to ask me. I’m here for you whenever you need me. You are my baby sister after all, and I promised Mom, Dad, and Alexis, that I would take care of you whenever they weren’t around. And I plan on sticking to that promise.

Lexi: Chris I……..

Chris: Don’t worry about it Sis, I’m always here for you when you need me.

Lexi: Thank you…….

Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chris and kissed him on the cheek, and Chris kissed her back on the cheek and again on the forehead.

Chrissy: You really care for eachother don’t you.

Chris: Yes we do, even though we do quarrel and have our differences, I still love Lexi more than anything. She means more to me than anything in life itself.

Chrissy: You’re really sweet Chris, and I feel the same way about Lilly. Sure she’s a brat, and drives me crazy, but I still love her more than anything, and I would lay my life down for her.

Chris: It’s an older siblings duty.

Chrissy: Exactly!!!! You and I also have that in common as well. I have a feeling that you and I are gonna be best friends forever.

Chris: I know we will. And we have a job to do.

Chris & Chrissy: And that is to protect our little sisters.

Juan: That is very touching you guys, but Chris, that axle bearing is cool enough now and is not gonna get any cooler. Chris……..CHRIS!!!!!!

Chris: Got it. Okay Lil Sis, you have to let go now!!!! I have to put this hose away.

Lexi wouldn’t let go, she still kept her arms wrapped around her big brother.

Chris: Lexi!!!!! We gotta get going!!!!!

Chris then slid his hand underneath Lexi’s cheerleading skirt and gently groped her butt, bikini spankies, and panties underneath, but it still wasn’t enough to get her to budge.

Chris: Okay, that trick normally works to freak her out. Juan, would you mind giving a loud blast on the whistle? And Chrissy & Lilly, could either one of you shut off the water valve?

Chrissy: Of course!!!!

Aaron: I’ll take care of it, and I’ll put the hose away for you!!!

Juan: Sure thing!!!!

Juan then tugs on the whistle chord and gives a very loud blast on Katie Belle’s whistle with a……..

WHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi then jumped with a start and freaked out. Juan however burst out laughing as did Aaron, Alex, Mike, Nina, Wendy, Chrissy, and Lilly while Chris was trying hard not to.

Lexi: *SCREAMS* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUAN!!!!!!!

Everyone: BURSTS OUT LAUGHING!!!!!!!

Chris: *TRIES HARD NOT TO LAUGH*

Lexi: THAT IS SO NOT FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: A grope on the butt wasn’t enough to get you to move, so we had to get you to budge somehow.

Lexi: UGH!!!!!!!!! Really???!!!!!!!! I can’t have a moment with you for a few minutes???!!!!

Chris: Everyone wants to get going, and we really should Sis.

Lexi: Okay………….

Chris: That’s a good girl.

Lexi: By the way, the butt groping doesn’t bother me anymore so, it’s useless to use that trick.

Chris: Good to know.

Aaron then walked over, took the large fire hose, shut off the water, wrapped up the hose, and placed it back by the tower.

Chris: Thanks Aaron.

Aaron: No problem man!!!

Chrissy: Little sisters will always get to you one way or another Chris. *Giggles*

Lexi & Lilly: What’s that supposed to mean???!!!!

Chris & Chrissy: UH……. NOTHING!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!

Chrissy then wrapped her arms around Chris and kissed him on the cheek causing Chris to blush.

Chrissy: OMG!!!! YOU’RE BLUSHING!!!!! YOU’RE SUCH A CUTIE!!!!! *GIGGLES*

Chrissy, Lilly, and Lexi then giggled as they climbed back aboard the train.

Nina: Don’t let them get to you Chris.

Wendy: Teenage girls are something we don’t even get, and we’re girls!!!!

Chris: If there is anything that is more complex than Space Shuttle Endeavour, it’s the female species. They are by far the most complex pieces of machinery known to man, and you girls are proud of it too. No offense.

Nina: *Giggles* None taken!!!!

Wendy: That is a good one. *Giggles*

Nina: You’re right, we are complicated.

Wendy: And we are proud of it.

Nina & Wendy: And it’s something boys have to figure out why. *Giggles*

Wendy and Nina then giggle as they climb back aboard the train.

Mike: Geeze man!!!! Women are the devil!!!!

Alex: You got that right!!!!

Aaron: All too true!!!!

The guys then climb back aboard the train while Chris climbs back into Katie Belle’s cab.

Juan then opens the firing and atomizer valves back up and rings the bell, while Chris gives 2 blasts on the whistle, rings the bell, eases the throttle open, and the train gets rolling on its way again.

Aleasha: I will show you the way!!!!

The tracks then light up as if they were guiding Katie Belle and her train to their final destination.

Chris: Okay, so where are we going?

Aleasha: Not much farther.

Chris: Okay…………

Just then something appeared in Katie Belle’s headlamp.

Juan: What the heck is that??!!!

Chris: It looks like a……..

Just then a large palace showed up in Katie Belle’s headlamp putting both Chris and Juan in a lot of shock and disbelief.

Chris: Juan………Do you see what I see?

Juan: I see it but I don’t believe it.

Chris: It looks just like Hearst Castle!!!!!!!

Juan: But Grander!!!!!

Chris then picks up the microphone to inform everyone of the final destination.

Chris: Alright everyone, we’re now coming up to our final destination. It appears to be some kind of castle, or palace.

As Katie Belle gets closer and closer, the palace gets bigger and bigger, and it’s not long until Katie Belle starts steaming into a large tunnel.
Chris then notches the Johnson bar down so the train doesn’t go faster than 23 feet per second as Juan rings the bell as Katie Belle steams through the tunnel.
Lexi then walked up to the very front car behind Katie Belle’s tanker to see what was going on. Chris then picked up the microphone as he saw Lexi in the front open air car of the train.

Chris: I have no idea what this is about Sis, but we’ll find out soon enough.

Just then, Katie Belle steamed out of the tunnel and entered a beautiful garden isle full of waterfalls, fountains, ponds, flowers, lush plants, beautiful trees as well as elephants, giraffes, deer, horses, pigs, llamas, goats, tropical birds, and many other animals wandering around.

Chris: Okay this must be one of the garden areas of the palace where animals reside. Interesting!!!!

Katie Belle then steams out of the garden area, past a massive court yard, and steams into large marble basement area of the palace.

Aleasha: Here is where you can stop. I will be over shortly.

Chris: Okay Juan, shut her down!!!

Juan then slowly closes the firing valve and rings the bell while Chris then notches his Johnson bar into the corner, and shuts his throttle all the way; allowing Katie Belle to gently coast to a full and complete stop. Chris then locks on the brakes and gives one blast on the whistle signaling that Katie Belle has come to a full and complete stop.

Chris: Alright, lets disembark.

Everyone then disembarks the train and stands and makes their way to Katie Belle where they await the arrival of Aleasha and find out why they were sent to a magical world.

Chapter 9

The Magical Railway’s story

Aleasha: Welcome everyone.  

Chris: Okay……..ummmmmmm……….

Aleasha: You’re wondering what’s going on, and why you wound up here.

Chris: Exactly.  Also who are you?  Where did the other guys go, and why was it only me, my close friends, and my train that ended up here?

Aleasha: To answer your question Mr. Mandez, my name is Aleasha and I am the guardian of this world.  You were chosen here on a quest to save our world for you and your engine Katie Belle hold the key into saving our world from The Dark Railway.  As for your other friends, I have no idea where they wound up.  We can assume that they are still in the real world and waiting for you in Dearborn.

Chris: Okay, you answered only part of my question and you have me wondering on many other things.  What do you mean by the key to saving your world and what in the name of The City Of Truro is The Dark Railway?

Aleasha: You’re engine Katie Belle is the reincarnation of a Legendary locomotive known as the Crimson Dragon.  The Crimson Dragon was also a red Mason Bogie steam locomotive that saved our world, and kept it protected from an evil railway known as the Dark Railway.  The Dark Railway is a railroad that consists of evil black locomotives like that of Ghost Trains number #40 and number #93 from East Ely, as well as the Cursed 311, Old 27, and the mysteriously evil 0-8-0 saddle tank engine that was originally the rear half of an 0-8-8-0 mallet locomotive.  Together, these 4 locomotives have wreaked all kinds of havoc on multiple railroad lines, and will soon once again cause disruption to our narrow gauge line.  

Chris: Wait a minute??  What do you mean by the fact Katie Belle is the reincarnation of that of the Legendary Crimson Dragon??  Only 2 Mason Bogies still survive in existence and that’s Katie Belle and Torch Lake, the latter being a MUCH older locomotive.

Aleasha: Well, long ago there was a beautiful 2-6-6RT Mason Bogie locomotive in the same beautiful crimson red colors as that of Katie Belle.  She had no name but was numbered 22, the exact same number as Katie Belle.  She was literally identical to Katie Belle in almost everyway, except she had a different sounding bell, and a single note whistle.  Like Katie Belle she was an ordinary steam locomotive, and all she did was haul her beautiful red passenger train around this Magical World until a 3rd rail appeared.  This 3rd rail caused the line to be dual gauged which became a problem.  Dual gauge is too big for a large percentage of our line, especially through tunnels and gorges, and WAY too heavy to go over our bridges.  For a while we just saw this 3rd rail broad gauging the track on/off for a little while and nothing happened out of the ordinary.  Slowly but surely, the 3rd rail appeared more and more until it became like a permanent entity and once that happened, we heard the sounds of evil locomotive whistles.  All 5 different whistles sounded very haunting and we had no idea where they were coming from until the first engine made its move.  

Chris: Okay……..I think I heard of number 40 from an old legend that dates back to a long time ago.  Attack Of The Ghost Train, which was a trilogy series of 3 books.  Number 40 and 93 were involved in a wreck on a Halloween night back in the 30s and have since wreaked havoc every Halloween until a young engineer and his little tank engine brought that to a close.

Aleasha: Correct, but this goes beyond those stories for engines 40 and 93 are the real deal.   Engine 40 stalked almost everyone and everything wherever she went, and that freaked everyone and everything out.  Her sister, the 93 took that to the next level by vanishing and appearing at will.  

Chris:  Pretty much like in the horror novel………..

Lexi: Okay this is freaking me out……..

Chris: This is sounding like too much of a coincidence.  And don’t tell me, the cursed 311 crashed off a train bridge on stormy Halloween night in 1957?

Aleasha: That’s right!!!  Ever since the accident, every year on Halloween, the cursed 311 would show up at its accident site and any locomotive and train crew who would dare look the demon locomotive in the headlamp, would suffer the same fate.  Ya see, the cursed 311 was hauling an extremely heavy train on a dark and rainy night, and it was probably one of the worst storms of the year.  The 311 and its train soon crossed over a bridge when it gave way.  The locomotive and its entire train plunged into the lake below and has since been cursed to repeat the accident every Halloween night, and curse anyone and anything that encounters it.

Chris: JEEZE!!!! That sounds too much like those 2 episodes in the old online Train Simulator series, Railway Chronicles.

Lexi: I think I remember hearing about that series, but I never saw a single episode, and I wouldn’t dare get involved with anything paranormal.  Anything related to ghosts freaks me out.

Chrissy: That explains why you refuse to watch any movies involving hauntings, including The Haunting Of Blackmore Manor.

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!! Don’t ever mention that again Chrissy!!!

Chris: Let me guess, Old 27 also feel off a bridge on a narrow gauge iron viaduct spanning 200 feet over a gorge on a dark and stormy Halloween night in 1927?  And like 311, Old 27 gives off that same curse, but will also chase after its next victim.

Aleasha: Exactly!!!  As for this mysterious tank 0-8-0 saddle tank engine, it was a basket case.  The locomotive was useless.  It used too much water, it’s water tank was too small, it couldn’t go very far, engine crews were constantly having problems with it, so they stored it in the back of their roundhouse for many years.  The locomotive then slowly moved inch by inch daily, then those inches turned into feet, and then those feet turned into yards, and those yards turned into the length of the track inside of the roundhouse stall it was sitting in.   Until one day it moved on its own with no steam pressure, and ran down the track.   Because the engine had no speed control whatsoever, it ran too fast, and fell off the side of a cliff.

Chris: Jeeze!!!! Sounds like the horror story out of San Juan Trainz.  And let me guess, every Halloween night, locomotives and engine crews would see floating headlamps, locomotive parts scattered everywhere, and whenever engine crews and locomotives came face to face with the troubled engine, it would stock them until it coupled up.  To make matters worse, once the engine were to couple up, it would feel like the force of 15 locomotives.

Aleasha: Exactly, and it would push locomotives off the side of a cliff, but the crew would be thrown out of their cabs and onto the ground injured but alive.

Chrissy: WOW!!!!!

Lexi: THIS IS SCARING ME!!!!

Aleasha: Together, all 5 of these engines teamed up and formed the dark railway.  Their mission is to destroy everyone and everything in their path.  But to put an end to that, a legendary narrow gauge locomotive actually came out of the blue and it was a tiny little crimson red Mason Bogie engine that was actually flying in the air with gold smoke pouring out of her stack, colorful lights activating behind her everywhere she went, and had a beautiful whistle that sounded like that of a high pitched roar of a dragon.  This little engine, despite her small size was more powerful than all 5 dark railway locomotives combined.  With the ability to fly, activate colorful lights, and roar like a dragon, she managed to weaken every last of the dark railway locomotives.  All 5 engines then retreated and left us in peace for a good 50 years all thanks to the Crimson Dragon.

Chris: REALLY???!!!!!!  And you’re sure this engine is her reincarnation??!!!

Aleasha: I am positive she is because the Crimson Dragon was the same size, had the same brass, bronze, and chrome fittings, and the exact same colors as your engine Katie Belle.  And also, she was numbered 22, just like your engine!!!!

Chris: Okay, something is missing.  You told us that the Crimson Dragon had restored peace to your world, but how did she do that, and what happened to her?

Aleasha: The blast of her whistle was enough to brighten anything even during the darkest nights, and everywhere she would go, beautiful gold dust would fly out of her stack, land on objects, and those objects would light up in beautiful colors like that of colorful lights.  Because of this, everyone was happy, and everywhere she went, everyone wanted to follow her.   Because the little engine was so beautiful and majestic, they thought it was the most magical thing they’d ever seen, and have since then affectionately called the railway she was running on the Magical Railway.   Our source of Magical Power was enhanced thanks to her until………

Chris: Until what?  

Aleasha: Something happened on a dark and stormy night 25 years ago.  The Crimson Dragon then steamed off to see what it was, but then she steamed over a bridge much like that of the Ashtabula Horror’s iron bridge, and vanished into thin air.  No one knows what it was, but some suspected that the nightmare of the Dark Railway returning was to blame while others suspected that she needed to return to her home wherever she came from, and some believe that she went into hibernation.  Anyway you put it, the Crimson Dragon hasn’t been seen since.

Chris: 25 years.  Ironically I turn 25 in October, as does my little sister Lexi.  So if that is the case, the Crimson Dragon vanished the same year I was born.

Aleasha:  Do you know when your engine was built?

Chris: Honestly no.  I would guess sometime in the 1870s, but there were no surviving builder’s plates, there is no records or documentation of where the engine worked, so I can’t tell you her age.  How old was the Crimson Dragon?

Aleasha: That remains a mystery for she had no official construction plates on her, nor did anyone know when she was officially built.  There were no records on where she worked, or what she did, but no one knew how old the Crimson Dragon actually was.

Chris: That is weird, and what’s weirder is, when it came to the locomotive’s colors, I just followed my gut and chose the colors as if something was guiding me to color it this way.

Aleasha: I know.  I have been watching you from afar restore this locomotive because she is the reincarnation locomotive of the Crimson Dragon.  Ever since the Crimson Dragon’s disappearance, everything has been quiet until recently.  Strange activity has been occurring and everyone fears that the Dark Railway maybe returning to wreak havoc and destroy our world once again.  We need The Magical Railway’s help to end it once and for all.  Those locomotives destroyed most of our locomotives and train cars that once ran on here, and none have been out on the line until the Dark Railway’s locomotive’s retreated.  With the Crimson Dragon here, we can run our trains with no problem, but once she disappeared, the fires were dropped and all of our trains were once again put into storage or displayed in museums.  But I believe that your engine is the key to once again bringing back the Crimson Dragon and saving our world.  

Chris: If that is the case, are my friends and I stuck here?

Aleasha: Unfortunately yes you are until the Dark Railway is destroyed.

Chris:  Just my dumb luck.

Aleasha: For the time being, you and your friends shall reside here in the palace.  I will keep you informed should anything occur.

Chris: What are we supposed to do??!!!!

Aleasha: Think of something!!!!

Aleasha then vanishes into thin air without a trace.

Chris: “Think of something!”  Easy for you to say, we’re in the middle of God fucken no where, and you expect us to sit back and do nothing???!!!!!  Flyen, Fucken, SHIT!!!!!!  Just my rotten luck!!!!!

Juan: I guess we’ll have to see how far this line goes tomorrow.

Chris: That’s the only thing we can do, and try to get a tracking of our broad gauged friends because I don’t have a trace on them.

Juan: Yeah, so lets shut her down for now.

Chris: Yep, and we should ask the staff for recycled cooking oil and send it off to be refined ASAP because without enough bio-diesel, we won’t last long.

Chris then climbs back into Katie Belle’s cab and releases the brakes.  Juan then walks in between Katie Bell and the tank car, shuts off the valves on both the water and vacuum hoses before disconnecting them, and pulls up on Katie Belle’s coupler pin.  Chris then gives 2 blasts on the whistle, eases the throttle open, and with a popping sound of the vacuum hose, Katie Belle was disconnected from her train.

Chris: Alright guys, set the hand brakes on all train cars.

Chris then shut Katie Belles, throttle and applied her engine brake while Alex, Aaron, and Mike set to work on applying the hand brakes on all the coaches.
Juan then climbed back into Katie Belle’s cab, and both he and Chris set to work on completely filling up the boiler full of water, deactivating the headlamp, shutting off the firing, atomizer, and blower valves, and dropping the fire.  They then set to work on closing up all the valves on the main steam turret before walking out onto Katie Belle’s running boards, closing up the injector branch pipes, the air compressor, the whistle valve, and placing the stack cover on top of the massive balloon stack, before climbing off the locomotive, and placing safety chains by the drive wheels.

Chris: That should do it.

Juan: Yep.  Time to bring in the rest of the pizza and cakes, and call it a night.

Chris: But we need to find out where we’re staying, otherwise we’ll be camping out by the train.  I have no problem sleeping by the engine, but I don’t think the girls would be too happy about it.

Lexi: You’re right about that, and I really want a bath!!!!

Chrissy: Me too!

Wendy: Me 3!!!

Nina: Ditto!!!

Lilly: I’m with you girls!!!!

Just then a butler showed up out of nowhere.

Butler: Perhaps I can be of some assistance; follow me.

Chris: Okay, but will our engine and train consist be alright?

Butler: Do not worry about that, we’ll have guards keeping a watchful eye on her.

Chris: Thank you.

Butler: No problem sir, now all of you follow me.

Chris: Volvagia!!!!!!

Volvagia: BEEP!!!!!!

Chris: I had forgotten, we’d chained her down.

Chris then climbed into the baggage car, and unhooked Volvagia from her safety chains before setting up her ramp.  Volvagia then turned over her engine, put herself in gear, drove down the ramp and onto the ground.  Volvagia then opened up her trunk, lifted up her front suspension, and dumped all the heavy tools all over the floor, for she had had enough of those heavy tools being in her trunk.

Chris: LOL!!!!!!!  I bet you couldn’t wait to get those tools out of your trunk Old Girl.

Volvagia: BEEP!!!!!!

Volvagia then set her back seats up in the upright position, and drives up to Chris.

Chris: Well, I’ll set to work on organizing the tools.

Butler: No need to worry about that.  We have our late night workers who have a spare toolbox.  They’ll come by and clean your tools, and will have them organized within the hour.

Chris: WOW!!!! That’s amazing!!! Thanks!!!

Butler:  No problem!!! Now, I’ll take you all to your quarters.

Everyone then followed the butler out of the basement area and up to the grand foyer of the palace.

Butler: This palace is your home now for the time being, so everything is at your disposal.  We have multiple swimming pools, our gardens, as well as multiple bars and restaurants that are open 24-7.

Mike: BAR OPEN!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!

Mike then goes running off to find one of the bars and get himself a drink.

Chris: LOL!!!!!!  

Lexi: MICHAEL!!!!!!! GET BACK HERE!!!!!!!!

Chris: What can I say, the guy can’t get enough of the booze!!!! LOL!!!!

Lexi: Honestly!!!!  Doesn’t he have any form of self-control.

Chris: He does, but I’m sure he has a good reason for his drinking rampage.

Lexi: He’d better have a good reason because his drinking habit drives me crazy.

Chris: Me too, but hey, it is what it is.

Lexi: I guess so……..

Volvagia then parked herself in a massive great room where there was a beautiful 12 foot long Steinway & Sons Grand Piano, 87 inch plasma t.v., 3 manual M.P. Moller pipe organ, a large couch that curved around a massive coffee table, multiple fountains, a wet bar, a massive 4 sided fireplace, a long 30 foot long dining room table, massive glass chandeliers, shelves full of beautiful artifacts, and beautiful oil paintings everywhere.

Chris: Well Old Girl, you’ve certainly found a great place to park for the night.

Volvagia then shut off her engine, locked on her E-brake, and shut off her headlamps.

Lexi: Sleep well Volvagia Sweetie.

Chris: She fits right in like a piece of furniture, and has seemed to have made herself at home.

Lexi: Yeah!!!

Butler: Alright, now that that’s settled, the main kitchen is up ahead behind this wall.  The chefs are always happy to have visitors, and they’ll certainly be happy to hold onto your pizza sand cakes.

Juan: Awesome, I’ll go drop them off.

Juan then enters the main kitchen to drop off the food, before coming back out and rejoining the group.

Butler: Now to take you to your quarters.  

The Butler then takes everyone back to the Grand Foyer, and climbs up the massive grand staircase.  Chris then asks him a few questions on how the palace came into existence.

Chris: Okay, so there is this palace here just outside of a city, and it’s nothing short of grand and spectacular, but I need to know; who was it built for?

Butler: That is a very good question.  This palace was built specifically to house the Crimson Dragon and her master.  However, the Crimson Dragon didn’t seem to have a master during her prime when she was still active here.  But we still built the palace for her, and for the day she would receive a master so her master would have a place to stay, along with his friends and family.  We then researched a lot of resorts, hotels, palaces, castles, mansions, halls, and many other homesteads until our end result turned into this spectacular palace.  However, no one but the staff resides here, so it gets very lonely and sad for us.  But now that you’re here with the Crimson Dragon’s reincarnation, we finally feel like we are serving our purpose.

Chris: Okay.  But why make it so grand beyond all reason with all this beautiful and expensive Carrera Marble, Limestone, Quarts, fancy doors, brass & bronze fixtures, a jungle full of animals, fountains everywhere, multiple swimming pools, restaurants, and bars?

Butler: We wanted both the Crimson Dragon and her master along with his family and friends to live in the ultimate luxury as a reward for keeping the Dark Railway at bay.  Those 5 locomotives are probably the most horrifying engines in railroad history.  All they do is wreak havoc and disrupt that balance of our world, but the Crimson Dragon managed to disable them, and make them retreat.  However after 25 years of disappearing, we have been getting strange activity on the railway line with a 3rd broad gauge rail appearing, and it’s a sign of something we fear.

Chris: And that 3rd appearing is a warning of The Dark Railway’s return.

Butler: That’s exactly what it is, and we saw that your engine is the spitting image of the Crimson Dragon, and we saw that you were her master.

Chris: And that’s when Aleasha called me in and sidelined me and my friends and family.

Butler: Exactly.  And for the time being, since you are the owner and master of the Crimson Dragon’s reincarnation, you and your friends & family shall reside here until the Dark Railway is once again put at bay.  Now you and your sister will reside in the master suite.

Chris: Okay, sounds fine by me.

Lexi: Yeah, it sounds great.

Butler: Very well, as for your 4 female friends, they shall reside in the massive princess suite that is made of 2 bedrooms, a massive sitting room, and a large Jack & Jill bath room.  

Chrissy: That sounds great.

Lilly: YEAH!!!

Nina: We’re gonna have so much fun!!!!

Wendy: I KNOW!!!!

And the guys will each get their own suites.

Aaron: AWESOME!!!!

Alex: Sweet man!!!!

Juan: That’s good to hear!!!!

Chris: Mike would be happy to hear that. LOL!!!!

Butler: Good to hear Sir.  

One by one, the Butler drops the guys off at their own rooms then drops off the girls at their suite, before he takes Chris and Lexi to the master suite on the top floor of the palace.

Butler: Here is where we part ways for the night sir.  The restaurant and bars are at your disposal 24-7 as well as room service.  If you’d like, we can also have a valet come by, take care of your laundry, and have it ready for you by tomorrow morning.

Chris: Alrighty, thank you very much for your help.

The Butler then hands Chris the key to the suite before going on his way.  

Chris: Well Lexi, looks like we’ll be sharing a room for a while.

Lexi: And I actually like the sound of that because I want to be with you more because I need you more than ever you know.  As far as family goes, you’re all I have left.

Chris: I understand, and I promised to take good care of you as best as I can.

Lexi: I love you big brother.

Chris: I love you too Sis.

Lexi then gives Chris a kiss on the cheek and again on the forehead, and Chris kisses her back.

Chris: Well, lets get into our room and call it a night, shall we?

Lexi: Sounds good, but note that I really could use a bath.

Chris: No problem, I’ll give you one.

Lexi: Thanks!!! ☺

Chris then slides the key into the lock, unlocks, and opens the door to the master suite.
The Master suite was massive, and beautiful.  The floor was covered in beautiful Carrera Marble with beautiful rugs on top, and the floor was heated too.   There was also a beautifully large California King sized 4 poster bed with an extremely soft Tempurpedic Mattress and duvet covers along with beautifully hand carved night stands on both sides in beautiful dark rosewood with Bronze lamps on top as well as an old fashioned styled telephone that used modern buttons.  The suite also had a huge seating area with beautiful chairs and sofas, along with glass coffee table, a mini bar, a desk with a chair for a lap-top, as well as a beautiful 42 inch plasma t.v. with a DVD player, a beautiful multisided fireplace, a beautiful white antique cabinet with a quartz counter top and dual vanity sinks, as well as a claw footed bath tub with beautiful bronze and porcelain fixtures along with a beautiful glass enclosed shower with a beautiful Sunflower showerhead, external piping and hand held wand.  The water closet was in its own room with a bidet, separate from the bedroom/bathroom/living rom combo, along with a massive open concept walk in closet,; beautiful chandeliers and light fixtures hung from the ceiling, beautiful oil paintings hung on the walls, beautiful crown moldings surrounded the ceilings, and beautiful golden yellow & red wall paper accented the walls.
Both Chris and Lexi were in shock and awe when the first laid eyes on their beautiful suite.

Chris: WOW!!!!!

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!!!

Chris: I am tongue tied!!!! LOL!!!!!

Lexi: As am I!!!! LOL!!!!!

Chris: I love open concept, but this bedroom/bathroom/living room/closet all in one room is a more open concept than what I’ve bargained for. LOL!!!!

Lexi: I think it’s cool and I love it!!!!!

Chris: It is unique, and as long as the can is in its own room, which it is, then I’m good.

Lexi: Yeah, same here!!!!

Chris: Well, lets make ourselves at home since this will be our home for a while.

Lexi: Yeah, and now for the bath I really want.

Chris: I’ll help you with that.

Lexi: Thanks!!!!!  *Giggles*

Chris then helps Lexi undress by helping take off her shoes, and socks as well as helping her remove her top shell of her cheer uniform along with her spandex long sleeved top underneath the shell, along with her bikini spankies when a brass key falls to the ground.

Lexi: Oh, I had forgotten that I hid the key to the train’s fridge there.

Chris: Let me guess, it was Mike’s boozing? LOL!!!!

Lexi: Yeah, it was.  *Giggles*

Chris: I enjoy a cocktail every now & then, but he overdoes it. LOL!!!

Lexi: UUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I know, and it drives me crazy!!!!!!  Doesn’t the guy have any sense of control???!!!!!

Chris: My thoughts exactly, but there’s gotta be a reason behind it.

Lexi: I guess so.  Anyways get back to helping me please.

Chris: No problem Sis.

Chris then fills up the bathtub with warm water, before picking up the bubble bath next to the tub and pouring it in.  He then helped Lexi unzip her cheer skirt before helping her unhook her bra, and slide off her bikini panties.   He then helped her remove her hair ribbon, and let her hair beautifully slide down to her waist.

Chris: You really are very beautiful Lil Sis.

Lexi: Thanks Big Brother, that means a lot to me.

Chris: Of course Sis. ☺

Chris then helped Lexi into the tub, and Lexi laid back and relaxed.  Chris then got out the laundry bag, opened it up and placed Lexi’s clothes inside.

Lexi: Be sure to leave my underwear out of the bag because I’ll have nothing to sleep in otherwise.  

Chris: No problem Sis.  I’ll just fold them up and place them on the bed.  

Lexi: Great!! ☺

Chris then placed the rest of Lexi’s uniform inside the bag before folding up her panties and placing them on the bed.  He then walked back to the closet area of the suite, picked up the small sized bathrobe, and placed it on the bed as well.
Chris then walked down to the bathtub, picked up the shampoo bottle next to the tub, and gently massaged shampoo into Lexi’s beautiful long brown hair.  He then picked up the liquid soap, gently dabbed a little bit on the sponge, and gently scrubbed Lexi from head to toe before gently scrubbing her back.

Lexi: This feels so good Chris.  I wish we did this more often because it makes me feel like I’m being taken care of, and it also means that you and I are bonding more.

Chris: I know, and that we’re slowly reconnecting.

Lexi: Yeah, so promise me to help me bath as much as you can okay?

Chris: I promise Lil Sis. ☺

Chris then picked up the small telephone shower and gently rinsed out Lexi’s beautiful long brown hair before picking up the conditioner bottle, and massaging in conditioner.  Chris then gently rinses out Lexi’s hair once again, and Lexi then lays back and relaxes in her bubble bath, while Chris gets out the t.v. remote, turns on the t.v., and a documentary on European pipe organs shows up.  Chris then dials for room service to bring up slices of the pizzas and the cakes along with a valet to pick up the laundry.  He then undresses, and walks into the beautiful glass enclosed shower, and enjoys a nice hot shower under the beautiful Perrin & Rowe sunflower showerhead.  Chris then gets out of the shower, wraps himself up with a towel, slides on his boxer shorts, walks back to the closet area, puts on the larger bathrobe, puts his clothes in the laundry bag, and walks back to the tub.  He then helps Lexi out of the tub, and gently dries her off.  Chris then helps her over to the vanity, and gently brushes and blow-dries her hair while Lexi brushes her teeth.   Chris then picks up a small hibiscus flower and places it in Lexi’s hair.

Chris: You are very beautiful Lexi, and probably the most beautiful girl ever.

Lexi: *Giggles* You always know the right things to say Big Brother, and thank you. ☺

Chris then helps Lexi over to the bed before helping her put on her underwear and bathrobe.  Lexi then lays on the bed and watches t.v. while Mike knocks on the door, and Chris reluctantly answers it.

Chris: Hey Mike what’s up?

Mike: Hey man, this isn’t coffee.

Mike then pours a little bit of his drink on the floor outside in the corridor.  Chris could then smell that Mike was right, and what he was drinking was not coffee, but Long Island booze.

Chris: Mike!!!!! Where did you go???!!!!

Mike: I went to the café by the garden.

Chris: DON’T DRINK THEIR COFFEE; IT’S TERRIBLE!!!!!

Mike: No it’s not!!!!! LOL!!!!!

Chris: Okay, if you say so!!! LOL!!!!

Mike: I know so!!!! LOL!!!

Chris: So, do you know where your room is?

Mike: Yeah, I kinda need help with that!!!

Just then the valet comes over to collect the laundry bag and tells Mike where he needs to go.

Mike: Sweet!!! Thanks man, have a good night.  

Chris: You too Mike!!!

Mike then heads off to his suite, while Chris hands the laundry bag to the valet runner, and shortly after room service arrives with 10 slices of pizza including 3 of the Hawaiian with sausage & extra sauce, 3 of the plain cheese, 2 of the Mushroom & Tomato, and 2 of the pepperoni, as well as 4 slices of the cakes, and sodas.   Room service then lays everything out on the coffee table, and both Chris and his little sister Lexi enjoy a good meal and t.v.  Chris then lays on the bed, while Lexi lays next to him, gently lays her head on Chris’s chest, and Chris gently strokes her and kisses her forehead.

Lexi: I love you Big Brother.

Chris: I love you too Lil Sis.

Chris and Lexi then drift off to sleep, not knowing what the next day will have in store for them, for what was to lay ahead for them was to remain a mystery for no one knew what to do in completing their mission.

Chapter 10

Everybody Talks Too Much!!

Early the next morning, Chris, Mike, Aaron, Alex, and Juan were down in the basement hostling and firing up Katie Belle to begin their task at investigating the whereabouts of the Dark Railway.

Juan: Okay, so we know that we must get to work on the whereabouts of the Dark Railways………

Aaron: But the question is……..

Alex: Where to start?

Mike: That is what I’d like to know……..

Chris: As Do I. We weren’t given really given a clear picture on what to do.

Juan: We don’t even know where to look given that we don’t know anything about this world.

Chris: Yeah, but we gotta start somewhere….

Juan: Yeah, I guess so…………..

Aaron: By the way, we’ve got a good supply of Bio Diesel given how much vegetable oil the cooking staff go through.

Alex: Yeah, so we should be good to go for a while.

Chris: So now we just need to wait for pressure to build up, and we’ll be on our way.

Aaron: By the way Chris, do you think it’s okay if we leave your sister and her friends out of this? I don’t feel comfortable with us steaming off without them.

Alex: And it’s the same for Nina & Wendy since they’re also part of our crew.

Chris: The girls have been going through a tough time, so we need to give them a break and let them relax. Besides, they’ll have a lot more fun swimming in the pools, eating at the restaurants, and exploring the gardens than going on some wild goose chase that could take hours.

Mike: Good point and besides we need a break from them. Not to mention, no offense Chris, but your sister can be…….

Chris: A pain in the ass, areal Brat, too needy, and let me guess a cantankerous bitch?

Mike: WOAH MAN!!!!!! I wasn’t gonna go that far, but you hit the nail right on the head.

Chris: LOL!!!!! Little sisters are like that. Heck, I’ve been partially raising her and been taking care of her since I was 7. I had to hold her, change her, give her baths, play with her, follow her rules & demands, and you name it. LOL!!! But then she and Alexis pretty much became besties and my days of taking care of her were over, but now with the loss of our parents and Alexis, I’ve been given the task of taking care of her yet again. LOL!!!!!

Mike: I feel sorry for you man. LOL

Chris: Don’t be. I still love her, and will do anything for her since she and I are all we have left. We’re slowly rebuilding our friendship, step by step.

Mike: Good luck with that man.

Just then, Katie Belle’s safety Valve lifts, and Juan then opens the main valve to her air compressor and with a loud………

BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG….

The little engine was ready to go.

Chris: Alright, lets top off the fuel, and we’ll get going.

Chris then grabs a hose from an oil tank where the stored recycled vegetable oil is, climbs up Katie Belle’s tender tank ladder, opens up the fuel hatch, places the hose inside the fuel hatch opening, opens the valve on the hose, and begins refueling the locomotive.

Chris: This shouldn’t take too long. Once we have a full tank, we’ll be on our way.

Mike: Sweet!!!!

Juan: Now Chris, be honest, what do you think about Chrissy?

Chris: What do you mean?

Juan: What do you think about her?

Aaron: That’s what I’d like to know as well.

Mike: Yeah man because that girl is HOT!!!!

Alex: Yeah man, and if I were you, I’d be after her!!!

Chris: Well, she is very sweet, very beautiful, very smart, and I really like her, but I don’t know to what extent. She’s a wonderful girl and a great friend, but again, I don’t want to rush things. I’ve just got out of a relationship with Katelynn given that I didn’t receive any phone calls, text messages, or emails from her in a long time, so the relationship just died. I just don’t want that to happen again or worse.

Juan: I understand Bro, but I could see that she really seems to like you a lot, so don’t pass up a golden opportunity.

Alex: Or else another man will snatch her from you.

Chris: Very funny!!!!

Aaron: We’re serious man!!!

Chris: I read you loud and clear guys; now don’t rush me. Now it seems we have enough fuel, so lets get going.

Chris then closed the valve to the refueling hose before capping it, closing up Katie Belle’s fuel hatch, climbing down her tender tank ladder, and putting the hose back by the oil tank. Chris then removed the safety chains out from underneath Katie Belle’s wheels, and pulled up on her coupler lift bar.

Chris: Okay, we’ll take the water tanker and open-air car.

Juan then gave 3 blasts on the whistle, released the brakes, threw the Johnson Bar into reverse, gently eased the throttle open, and slowly backed Katie Belle onto the water tank car.
Chris then connects the air and water hoses between Katie Belle and the tank car before climbing up on the tank car and releasing the hand brake via the brake wheel. Chris then walks back to the front open air car and releases its hand brake via the brake wheel before stepping off the rear of the car, and closing off its air hose vale
Chris: Guys go ahead, and climb aboard!!!

Everyone then climbs about the train while Chris pulls up on the open-air car’s coupler lift bar.

Mike: Okay man, you’re good to detach!!!

Juan then gives 2 blasts on the whistle, releases the brakes, throws the Johnson bar forward, eases the throttle open, and they get rolling as the air hose pops between the open air car and the baggage car.
Chris then runs next to the train, and climbs into Katie Belle’s cab as she steams out of the palace, through the gardens, and out of sight.
Shortly after Katie Belle departs, all the girls wake up; and to Lexi’s surprise, Chris was out of bed and now where to be found.

Lexi: BIG BROTHER??!!!!! CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then Lexi got a call from Wendy & Nina.

Lexi: Hey Wendy & Nina!!! What’s up?

Nina: All the guys seemed to have upped and left.

Wendy: Yeah, we can’t find them anywhere.

Lexi: Interesting you say that because Chris isn’t in here!!!!

Just then the butler interrupted their call and got on the line.

Butler: Excuse me ladies, but the gentlemen have left the Palace. They’ve already fired up the iron horse and left the property. Chris said he wanted to you girls to get your beauty sleep, and relax. He also said that you girls would have a lot more fun swimming in the pools, dinning at our restaurants, exploring the gardens, and relaxing in the Great Room than go on a wild goose chase that could take hours.

Lexi: He was right about that, but still, he could have left a note or something……

Chrissy: I know, it’s like he’s worried more about our well being than about our feelings. IT’s sweet and at the same time it hurts.

Wendy: I know……….

Nina: I heard boys are very solitary unlike us girls.

Lexi: That they are Nina, having grown up with Chris as an older brother, and he never told me anything until I found out the hard way……. That was except when he bought our train, but that was it. He never told me anything, ZIP, NADDA!!!!!!!!!

Lilly: By the way, what’s an iron horse???!!!!!!

Chrissy: Really Lilly???!!!!!!

Wendy: Yeah, I’ve never heard that term before.

Nina: Neither have I……….

Butler: If I may, it’s another name for a steam locomotive. This was a much more common term used during the time of the first Transcontinental Railroad back in 1869. It was actually invented by the Native Americans for every time they shot bows and arrows at the locomotives, their weapons would just deflect, and bounce back off the locomotives. The 4-4-0 wheel arrangement type locomotives also had somewhat of a resemblance to that of a horse, so Native Americans called steam locomotives iron horse, and the term has been in used since.

Lexi: WOW!!!!!! I was just gonna say it’s another name used for a steam train, but WOW, you knocked out of the ball park, and went a little deeper than necessary.

Butler: My apologies Ms. Mandez.

Lexi: Hey, don’t worry about it, and thank you for keeping us informed.

Butler: My pleasure Ms. Mandez.

The Butler then hangs up the phone while Lexi and the girls decide on what to do.

Lexi: Okay girls, what sounds good to you?

Chrissy: Well with the boys out……….

Lilly: We can do what the butler said……….

Wendy: What would that be?

Nina: I believe that is go swimming, eat at the restaurants, explore the gardens, and relax in the Great room.

Lexi: That does sound like a good plan.

Wendy: And both Nina and I packed our brand new swimsuits that we have been anxious to wear.

Lexi: As did Chrissy, Lilly, and I, but our bags are out of reach now. UGH……………….

Nina: We have spares if you’d like!!!!!

Wendy: And we’re all tiny with small boobs so they should be interchangeable with any of us.

Lexi: You just had to go there…….

Chrissy: It is true Lexi……….

Lilly: The point is they have spares, so we can enjoy the pools girls.

Lexi: And I can finally get my panties clean!!!

Chrissy: Me too!!!

Lilly: Me Three!!!!

Nina & Wendy: TMI!!!!!! *GIGGLES*

The girls then get off the phone, and Lexi gets out of bed, brushes her teeth, brushes her hair, puts on her bathrobe, and makes her way to the suite where the rest of the girls were staying.

Lexi: I’m here girls!!!!

Chrissy: AWESOME!!! Time to choose a swimsuit.

Wendy: I’ll take the dark navy blue Akiba one piece!!!

Nina: And I’ve got the dark red Akiba one piece!!!!

Lilly: So looks like we’ll get the multipieces!!!!

Chrissy: Sounds good to me!!!!

Lexi: I’ve got the pink skirted 2-piece tankini!!!

Chrissy: Lilly & I have the skirted flowered aqua blue 2 pieces.

The girls then change into their swimsuits, grab their towels, and make their way down to the pools.
Volvagia wakes up, and goes for a drive as she explores the gardens.
A few hours pass and the girls soon dine at one of the restaurants at the water’s edge between the vast lake and one of the Palace’s swimming pools. They then begin talking about typical girl stuff.

Chrissy: Okay Lexi, so we understand you have somewhat of a brother complex, but we’d like to know why and how. Also do you like any other guys besides your brother that is?

Lexi: Hmmmm, well the reason I have a this brother complex is because, you know that we’ve all lost our parents in a plane crash, and he’s all I’ve got in terms of family. Also Chris and I have somewhat of history. It goes beyond an ordinary brother complex. The thing is, he and I were born the same day……………

Chrissy & Lilly: WHAT????!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: I know!!!! It’s crazy!!!! He and I were born on October 26, though he had turned 7 years old on the day I was born, and he told his parents that I was the best birthday present ever.

Chrissy, Lilly, Wendy, & Nina: AAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: He used to say that on every single birthday, and it made me really happy. Alexis however was kind of jealous, but she was a year and ½ older than me, so she wasn’t old enough to take care of me. Chris however, he’d hold me, he’d change me, he’d bathe me, and fed me. Our parents mostly made him do that, but he also said that he was happy to help out because he felt that it helped him become more responsible. So in some ways, Chris partially raised me when I was a little girl. Heck I still am a little girl according to him.
He also said that I was the cutest thing…………

Chrissy, Lilly, Wendy, & Nina: AAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Lexi: Chris and Alexis were not that close because he was still 5 and ½ when she was born, and according to him and our parents she was cranky as both a baby and as a toddler. Where as with me, they said I was more of a sweetheart. But when I grew up little by little, Alexis and I became really close. We did almost everything together such as Tennis, Ballet, gymnastics, swimming, cheerleading, singing; you name it. But we also enjoyed playing tricks on Chris. There were times he got annoyed with me and Alexis, and I can admit that she and I weren’t really the best little sisters to him. However, he never really lost his temper or got mad at us, the way Alexis did with him, and I admit, I too have lost my temper with him.

Chrissy: You aren’t alone Lexi; Lilly was also a brat to me in some ways, even though she’s only 3 years younger. And like you I too have lost my temper with Lilly a couple times.

Lilly: It’s a little sister’s job to be bratty to their older sibling, and I’ve also lost my temper with Chrissy.

Chrissy: But still by the end of the day, Lilly and I are still best friends as well as sisters, and we still love each other no matter what.

Lexi: I just wish I would have been a better sister to Chris. Alexis wouldn’t hesitate to fly off the handle with him even though I told her not to, I sorta backed her up in fear of betraying her because she and I were also best friends.
The thing is, when Chris became a teenager, he didn’t as much cause trouble such as get involved with gangs, or drugs, but he did listen to his music on full blast. And the music he listened to, drove Alexis crazy.

Chrissy: Really??!!!!! What kind of music did he listen to?

Lexi: Well, he loved NSYNC, Back Street Boys, BBMak, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, and a lot more, which was okay with me and her, but it was when he listened to Punk such as Bowling For Soup, The All American Rejects, Linkin Park, Simple Plan, and Evanescence that drove her crazy. It was even worse every time Chris would pick up his guitar and play along with the solo. It’s not so much that his playing was bad, in fact Chris was amazing and was right on with the solos, but it was more of the volume.

Chrissy: Too loud I take it?

Lexi: Exactly, and you know that Bowling For Soup, Simple Plan, Linkin Park, and many other punk bands use cursing in their lyrics?

Lilly: Yes, and that’s why Chrissy and I don’t listen to that kind of stuff.

Chrissy: And as much as I love to sing, you never hear me put that stuff in my music.

Lexi: Well, Chris would be singing those curse words, and it drove Alexis crazy. Not to mention every time Chris would have a birthday and graduation party, he and the boys cursed A LOT. Almost every other word was the F word. He and the boys would say, “F this, or F that, or WTF, or F that S, or his famous sayings, What the Flyin F, or Flying F S!” OH MY GOD!!!!! But when he was with the boys, Alexis couldn’t say anything because it was multiple boys against just she and I, but whenever he said it out loud when he was saying it at random, she’d bite his head off and slap him.

Chrissy: OUCH!!!!

Lexi: I know. I don’t like hearing those words, but I tend to let it slide because Alexis was so hard on him. He still curses a lot, and as part of wanting to be a good sister, I just don’t let it get to me as much as I hate hearing those words. Mike’s cursing however is WAY worse, but I won’t go there. LOL!!!

Lilly: Well Lexi, you’re nothing like your sister Alexis, because she sounds like she was a bitch, and you’re not.

Lexi: I’m glad you think that, but I too am a bitch and you girls know it. Alexis was just a much bigger bitch.

Chrissy: I know you’re a bitch, but so am I, and so is Lilly, because lets face it, we’re girls. We’re supposed to be bitches, but Alexis sounds like a totally different level of bitch.

Lexi: She was, and it’s partly because of her that Chris and I grew distant, and he went off and did his own thing. When he went to college, his program had a requirement to live abroad in a foreign country, so Chris moved to England, and lived there for 3 months. He lived in Dartmouth for a Month & ½, and London for another Month and ½. Oh my god, I wish I could have gone with him, because he told me and Alexis how much he loved it and couldn’t get enough of it. Partly the reason being is because a lot of people in Great Britain are train geeks like him, so he felt at very much at home there. Alexis and I wished we could have gone though. He also did a weekend trip to Paris via Euro-Star’s high-speed rail, which made Alexis and I even more jealous. And he had just graduated high school, gotten his driver’s license, and hadn’t even turned 18, so he got to live abroad and drive in foreign country while he was still a minor.
Alexis and I wouldn’t stop pestering him about his trip when he got back. LOL!!!! But I missed him like crazy!!!!! I cried for days on end before he left, and living without him for 3 months was very painful.

Chrissy: WOW!!!!!! That trip does sound amazing!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: And Chris has been to the UK dozens of times. His first time was when he was just a baby while his parents were doing a business trip. His second time he was 9 and ½ and both Alexis and I stayed home with a babysitter. His third time, he went with Daddy while doing a trip to India at age 11. His third time was during a return trip after going on Safari in South Africa with our parents. Alexis and I couldn’t go due to cheer camp. UGH………

Lilly: It seems a certain someone loves England.

Lexi: HE DOES!!!!!!!!! And after living there, Alexis and I never heard the end of it. Chris also lived in Shanghai China as part of his college program in his 4th year, and was there for a month. And both Alexis and I were jealous yet again!!!!!! She felt it was unfair that Chris got to travel the globe where as she I and I only travelled to Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Hawaii, New York, Scandinavia, and The Bahamas. We never really left North America, where Chris has been over seas multiple times. And the more he travelled abroad, the more things flared up between him and Alexis, and the more distant he and I became. But……………

Chrissy, Lilly, Wendy, & Nina: But what?

Lexi: No time could compare to his second year when he had to live abroad. That time scared the shit out of me. As usual, part of his college program required him to live in a foreign country, and so Chris lived in Scandinavia during a cold winter. This time I thought I had lost him, and I almost did…………it brings me to tears at the thought of it when………
It was a cold snowy night where it was like sub-zero below freezing, and Chris was living in the Artic Tundra in Northern Scandinavia. He was staying in a beautiful 5 star Hotel and was at a ski resort, so it wasn’t like he was suffering, but he did the stupidest thing according to both me and Alexis.

Chrissy: And what was that?

Lexi: Chris made himself a little too comfortable; that one night, he was wearing only jean shorts, a long sleeved polo shirt, a vest, and Vans tennis shoes.

Lilly: So what’s wrong with that?

Lexi: He was on his computer in the lobby keeping warm by the fire, but realized that he left his Ipod in Volvagia. Volvagia, given that she was built in Scandinavia, was built to withstand the harsh environment, so it wasn’t a problem for her, and she travelled over seas with Chris. But this one moment was the stupidest thing in Chris’s life because when Chris was running to the garage where Volvagia was being kept………….

Wendy: What happened???

Lexi: A massive avalanche struck without warning, and it literally consumed and crushed Chris. It was like 8 o clock at night, and only 2 valet parking attendants saw the whole thing, so it took a lot of convincing on their part of telling the hotel staff to call 911. After 2 hours, the rescue squad arrived, and after another 2 and ½ hours of digging, they found Chris snowed under with an extremely weak pulse, and a temperature that was dangerously low.

Nina: OH MY GOD!!!!!!

Lexi: My parents were quickly given a phone call, and both Alexis and I were at a cheerleading competition when we saw our parents arrive. We just dropped our pom-poms and set out on the first flight to Scandinavia.

Chrissy: WOW!!!!!!

Lexi: We arrive at the hospital to find him in the ER, and I don’t think I’ve ever cried so hard in my life. I was bawling my eyes out like a baby. Alexis was also in tears as were Mommy & Daddy. I don’t think I’d ever been so scared in my whole life. He had an extreme case of frostbite, and it’s a miracle that not a single body part had broken off him because he was hard and brittle enough for that to happen. And doctors said that it was the worst case of frostbite they had ever seen, and they weren’t at all optimistic on his survival. But the doctors worked their magic, and Chris came back to life, and was soon back to his normal self. Alexis and I scolded him big time once he was discharged, but he made a full recovery and successfully finished his studies in Scandinavia. But boy did he have an incredible story to tell to his class when he returned.

Lilly: OMG!!!!! That is amazing!!!!! He survived sub-zero below freezing in an avalanche, and is now taking care of us.

Lexi: I know, and it’s because I almost lost him that I wanted to be with him like every day would be our last day together. Unfortunately knowing Alexis, it just wasn’t possible, but when she and I got boyfriends, it became even harder until that one night when Brandon got himself in trouble and Alexis and Ralph went out on a date. I could finally spend time with him, but then we lose Alexis and our parents. Now he’s all I’ve got…………….

Chrissy: You’ve lost your parents, you’ve lost your sister, and you’ve lost your boyfriend, so it’s like your world collapsed in front of you………

Lexi: Yes. Chris has no idea how much he means to me, and how much I worry about him. I love him with all my heart and more than anything……….. That’s why I…….

Lilly: Have a brother complex and want to spend as much time with him as you can.

Lexi: And you have no idea how scared I was after hearing the avalanche………..

Chrissy: If you feel that way about him, you need to tell him.

Lexi: I just don’t want to be a burden to him, yet he has no idea how much I worry about him working on those steam engines, I die every time he takes Katie Belle for a run after hearing about the dangers involved with running a steam train.

Chrissy: You’re not alone Lexi, for I too worry about him on that thing. And I was even more worried about his car-hopping. He may know what he’s doing, but he doesn’t know how it makes us feel, and it hurts.

Lilly: I also worry about Juan too!!!! He is in just as much danger, and one wrong move on that thing could mean an explosion. I don’t even want to think about that.

Wendy: Nina and I haven’t been in Katie Belle’s cab because of how scary it is.

Nina: Yeah, not to mention the heat burns our skin. I have no idea how those guys tolerate it.

Wendy: I worry about them for the same reason you worry.

Nina: Wendy and I maybe little girls, but we also worry for Chris & Juan’s safety. Heck, Mike, Aaron, and Alex also put their lives on the line when they get involved too.

Wendy: As do all the older guys who run the bigger trains. So we should all tell them how we feel, and how scared we are for their safety. It would break my heart if anything were to happen to them.

Lexi: It’s funny you say this because Chris and I, given that we’re siblings, see each other naked all the time, and I see scald and burn marks all along his back, shoulders, and down his arms. Where as me, I’ve only had 1 fall in cheerleading, and the worst I got was a nasty bruise on my butt. That’s nothing compared to Chris’s burns and scalds.

Chrissy: OUCH!!! I too have had a couple nasty falls in cheerleading as has Lilly.

Lilly: However, we only get nasty bruises here and there, but no major injuries.

Lexi: Chris has been burned and scalded so many times, it’s not even funny, and it scares the shit out of me. He even told me that he’s gotten so used to getting scalded that he states that it’s no worse than a Bee-sting.

Wendy: Then again, Chris is a tough guy, and it’s not like the avalanche accident he had many years ago.

Lexi: True, but still, little sisters don’t want to lose their big brothers, especially when your big brother is the last member of your family.

Chrissy: I know how you feel, because I feel the same way about Lilly.

Nina: And Wendy and I are kinda like sisters given that we’ve been best friends for a long time.

Lexi: Yeah, so you all see my picture, and that’s why I kinda have a brother complex issue. I can also see why you have a really big crush on him Chrissy.

Chrissy: LEXI, NOT SO LOUD!!!!!!!

Lilly: It’s okay Sissy, it’s just us girls!!!!!

Chrissy: REALLY???!!!!! While we’re at it, I can tell that you have a crush on Juan.

Lilly: WHAT????!!!!!!!

Chrissy: It’s obvious Sis, you’ve been head over heals for him since you 2 first met!!!!

Lilly: Well uh……… OKAY!!!!! YOU’RE RIGHT!!!! I DO HAVE A CRUSH ON JUAN, THE SAME WAY YOU ARE IN LOVE WITH CHRIS!!!!!! I CAN’T HELP IT!!!! HE’S SO SWEET, AND SO CUTE, AND HE LOOKS HOT NEXT TO A STEAM ENGINE!!!! NOT TO MENTION HE HAS MANY SIMILAR PERSONALITY TRAITS TO THAT OF CHRIS!!!!!

Chrissy: *GIGGLES* AAAWWWWWWWWEEEEEE!!!!! My baby sister is falling in love with her first boy!!! It’s so adorable. And if you want to know why I’m falling for Chris; it’s because he and I are a lot alike. I have fun with him, I can be myself around him, we understand each other, and we have so much in common. And he is a cutie.

Lexi: I think it’s so cute, and I honestly think Chrissy, that you and Chris would make a great couple. Katelynn was a sweet girl until she changed, and she and Chris had a good number of things in common, but not as much as you 2 have. You 2 love the same colors, you love the same kind of movies, you love the same kind of foods, you’re both VERY angrophobic, and you 2 can’t even look someone in the eye for very long while holding a conversation. You 2 have really good chemistry, and I see you 2 being a happy couple.

Chrissy: I know, and I’ve actually liked Chris for a long time, but it’s when he was with Katelynn, I was too scared to ask to sleep over at your house so I could meet him. And I also had a boyfriend, but you knew how that turned out. But I pretty much kept my crush on Chris a secret until Katelynn changed and their relationship fell apart.

Lexi: AAAWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEE!!!!!!!! How long have you had a crush on him?

Chrissy: A little over a year after first seeing him pick you and Alexis up and taking you girls shopping. I noticed that he wasn’t hard headed or a show off like most other boys. And I could tell that he had a more gentle personality than that of a typical boy.

Lexi: Chris’s days of being a show off are pretty much over now that he’s matured into an adult, but even as a teen, he wasn’t as much of a show off as his other guy friends. He’s always had such a gentle personality, and it takes A LOT to piss him off. He’s never really lost his temper with me or Alexis, but he was with our parents, but more so with Daddy.

Chrissy: *Giggles* I’m glad to hear that, and don’t all parents piss us off.

Lexi: Yeah, no joke!!!! LOL!!!!

Lilly: They pissed me and Chrissy off a lot, so nothing new. LOL!!!!

Lexi: To answer your second question, I kinda think that Alex is cute, but I really don’t know him. On the other hand that doesn’t mean I don’t like him, so you can say yes and no about me liking someone.

Wendy: I kinda like Aaron. He is really sweet, and even though he’s much older than me, I still think he’s cute.

Nina: Awwwwwwwweeeeee!!!!! That’s so cute Wendy!!!!!! As for me, ditto, there’s no boy I’m really interested in………….

Lexi: You’ll find someone sweetie, I know you will. ☺ But as for Mike, forget him!!!!

Chrissy: He’s a sweet guy, but he can be…….

Lexi: Obnoxious much??!!!!! The guy has a drinking problem!!!!!!

Lilly: There must be a reason for it!!!!

Lexi: But to the point where I have to put the key to his stash in between my spankies and my underwear???!!! I mean come on!!!! The guy is an alcoholic!!!!

Chrissy: I’m sure he has his redeeming qualities. And it’s possible that his drinking issues are just for show.

Lexi: I doubt it because he came knocking on our door with so called, “coffee,” and poured some of it on the hard wood floor out in the hallway. I could still smell it when I when I was heading to your suite, and it was NOT coffee.

Waiter: If I may, the butler told me that the spill we just cleaned up was Long Island Iced Tea!!!

Lexi: What on earth is that?

Waiter: It’s a cocktail made of iced tea, tequila, vodka, triple sec, light rum, and cola.

Lexi: WHAT????!!!!!!!

Waiter: Don’t believe me, here it is on the cocktail menu.

Lexi then looked at the cocktail menu and she couldn’t believe what she was reading.

Lexi: THAT LIAR!!!!!!! I KNEW IT WASN’T COFFEE!!!!! AND I TOLD HIM NO ALCOHOL FOR 2 DAYS, BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO; HE JUST HAD TO ORDER A STRONG BEVERAGE ONCE WE ARRIVE!!!!!! FOR THAT, I DEMAND THAT YOU DON’T SERVE ANYMORE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES TO HIM, AND TO BE FAIR, NO ALCOHOL FOR ANYONE ELSE!!!!!

Chrissy: Lexi, you do know that we’re all under aged, except for Chris and Juan.

Lilly: And you told us that they rarely to NEVER drink alcohol!!!!!

Lexi: Good point Lilly, but still to be fair, for the next 4 days, no alcohol to anyone unless it’s an ingredient used on a main course or dessert because I understand that wine sauce, and whiskey can be vital in gourmet recipes.

Waiter: Understood!!! No alcohol unless it’s used as a food ingredient for meet and deserts. You got it. ☺

Lexi: Thank you. ☺

Meanwhile out on the railroad line, the guys were out on Katie Belle aimlessly wandering the railroad line.

Mike: What is the point of this? We’ve been out here for 5 hours straight and still haven’t found anything?

Aaron: I see your point man. I’m not seeing any 3rd rails pop up.

Chris: Yeah, this is not cool and Katie Belle’s axle bearing keeps overheating.

Juan: Heck, we drain our tank car not because we run low on water. It’s all because of the stupid overheating axle bearing.

Chris: Good point. Katie Belle uses high pressure air-rated low-flow injectors that results in her using less than half the amount of water of an average saturated steam locomotive, so the tanker is kind pointless. However, if that bearing keeps burning up, we’re gonna need it.

Juan: All for a stupid bearing!!!

Chris: You know what they say; steam locomotives are like teenage girls on their monthly periods, cantankerous and very unpredictable.

Juan: All too true.

Mike: Speaking of which Chris, you’re sister is no exception.

Chris: LOL!!!! Ain’t that the truth. LOL!!!! I deal with that brat all the time, and she may be drop dead beautiful, make look sweet, cute, and innocent, but oh boy…….. LOL!!!!

Mike: Yeah, I found out the hard way!!!!

Chris: Not just that, but she won’t hesitate to burp and fart out loud when she has the chance, and OH MY GOD!!!!! When that happens, STAY AWAY!!!!! LOL!!!!!!

Juan: GEEZE!!!!!! I can only imagine!!!!!

Chris: Yeah, she’s tiny, but she packs a punch. LOL!!!! Regardless, I still love her with all my heart and will do anything for her. The poor girl’s been through a lot, and is a lot more fragile than you could imagine.

Alex: You’re a good man Chris, and I can see that you really care for her.

Chris: Very much so. She may have dated 2 boys, but she’s still a virgin, and VERY innocent. She’s also not interested in dating anyone after that trauma she’s been going through, and who could blame her. I don’t want to date anyone either, because Lexi and I are still going through a difficult time.

Alex: WOW!!! That is amazing, but I understand and respect that she doesn’t want to date anyone. However, I think she’s really cute and would like to get to know her.

Chris: I can help you 2 get friend zoned, but as far as relationship wise, that will be all on you. I can’t speak for her, or force her, but I can help you get on good terms as friends.

Alex: Thanks man, I appreciate it.

Chris: No problem, but there is one rule that my parents have strictly made clear about, and I have honored that request. Alexis didn’t follow this rule but Lexi has honored it and will continue to honor it.

Alex: What is that?

Chris: There will be no sex or sleeping with anyone until she is 21 years of age.

Alex: SERIOUSLY!!!!!!

Chris: Alexis blew it off, and my parents were not best pleased with her. She was grounded for 6 months when she slept with her boyfriend Ralph when she was 16. They took away all of her privileges, and Lexi had to suffer for it too. Lexi couldn’t invite her friends over because Alexis would have gotten involved with it, and the punishment would have been more severe. Alexis had to leave her cheer squad for the duration, she lost her cell phone, she lost her internet access, she couldn’t leave the house property without me, she couldn’t shop for new clothes or jewelry, she and Ralph couldn’t see or talk to each other, and our family vacation was cancelled.
It was the one and only year I went to Disneyland alone because I used my own money to go. LOL!!!!

Alex: WOW!!!!! Your parents were THAT old fashioned weren’t they?

Chris: Yes they were, and that rule applied to me too. Fortunately given my lousy luck with girls, it was not a problem. Besides I was more involved with model train clubs, college, and working in the auto industry.

Alex: I see. But I understand and will honor that request.

Chris: Thanks Alex. I have a feeling you 2 should get along just fine. She is a wonderful girl, and always puts others before herself. It used to take a lot to piss her off, but given that Alexis has rubbed off on her, she’s gotten more cantankerous over the years. LOL!!!!

Alex: I can see that. LOL!!!!

Mike: You’re crazy man!!!! That bitch and I wouldn’t last 5 minutes, no offense Chris.

Chris: None taken, and she can be bitch when she wants to. LOL!!!

Alex: Don’t call her that!!! I think she’s a nice girl.

Chris: She’d love you for saying that, because she’s also very emotional, and EXTREMELY clingy.

Alex: Good to know.

Mike: Speaking of girls while we’re on it, what do you think about Chrissy?

Juan: We can tell you 2 have your eyes on each other.

Chris: Jeeze, not this again!!!!!

Aaron: It’s obvious you 2 have a thing for one another.

Juan: Lets see, you both have the same favorite colors, love anything related to Disney, enjoy paranormal activity, love cars, enjoy traveling, enjoy trying different foods, and love music, so it’s not just a coincidence.

Alex: The chemistry between you 2 is there man.

Aaron: Quit denying it Chris, you know you like her!!

Chris: Okay, I do kinda like her and think she’s beautiful, but I don’t want to get my hopes up with her in the same manor I did with Katelynn, and I did with Natalie before her. Once bitten, twice shy, 3rd time destroyed.

Juan: I understand loud and clear Bro.

Chris: And you’re not off the hook either because I can see that you and Lilly have been eying each other as well.

Mike: Dude!!! She was all over you!!!!

Aaron: Yeah man, she seems to really like you.

Juan: I do think she’s cute, but I never thought about having her as a girlfriend, nor do I intend to, but hey, whatever happens, well happens.

Chris: Well guys it’s 4:40, and we’re still not finding anything, so it’s best that we back home for the night, and try again tomorrow.

Juan: Sounds like a good plan because we’re not having any luck here.

Everyone then climbs back aboard Katie Belle and her train and set back to the palace for the night.

Wreck On The Ashtabula Horror Bridge


Katie Belle steams back into the basement area of the palace where Chrissy, was waiting.
Katie Belle slowly and gently backs up the open air coach of her train back onto the rest of her consist, before Mike, Aaron, and Alex hope off, and detach Katie Belle.  Chris and Juan then move Katie Belle a few feet forward from her train before putting out her fire, and shutting her down for the night.
Chrissy then walks up to Chris and greets him warmly.

Chrissy: Hey Chris!!!! How did it go?

Chris: No luck!!!

Juan: We found nothing!!!

Mike: Ditto!!!!

Aaron: It was nothing but a wild goose chase.

Alex: Like we’re going in circles.

Chrissy: Oh……… okay………..

Chris: And that God Damn Bearing is overheating yet again.   We’re wasting gallons of water on that Damn thing, and it’s not helping.

Juan: Yeah no joke!!!

Chrissy: I’m sorry guys, but please don’t give up.  I know you will find what you’re looking for.

Chris: Thanks Ms. Granger but it’ll be a while.

Chrissy: Hey, please know Chris that I’m always here for you when you need me.

Chris: Thanks.

Mike: By the way, where is everyone else?

Chrissy: They’re all hanging out by the main pool.

Mike: Sweet!!! Let’s join them!!!!

Aaron: Sounds good!!!!!

Alex: I’m in!!!!!

Juan: Likewise.

Chrissy: Awesome!!!

Everyone then runs out of the basement and joins Lexi, Lilly, Wendy, and Nina by the main pool, while Chris stays behind with Katie Belle.  Chrissy also stays behind for she grows worried about Chris’s well being.

Chris: *Sighs*  This is a fucking joke!!!!

Chrissy: Chris, are you okay?  I am very worried about you…….

Chris: Yeah, but honestly, everything we’re doing right now is a joke.  We’re searching for something that doesn’t exist, and you’re all trapped here because of me……..

Chrissy: Don’t think that Chris, I know you will find what you’re looking for.

Chris: Doubt it.  We were out searching for hours and what did we find?  Nothing!!!  You know that all too well!!!!  We could have been 3 quarters of the way there, but I ran us off course and we’re stuck in the middle of nowhere because I put in a faulty navigation system was too cheap to use a trucking company to move everything……..

Chrissy: STOP RIGHT THERE CHRIS!!!!!

Chris: You know I’m a failure and it’s true……..

Chrissy: NO!!!!! YOU GOTTA STOP IT!!!!  I can’t seeing you like this!!! This isn’t like you Chris!!!!  Your sister Lexi looks up to you, and says you’re the most optimistic person ever.  She has talked endlessly about you and bragged about you as long as I can remember, but this is nothing like what she said about you.  And I have looked up to you as well.  You’re very talented, and well skilled, and now you’re just insulting yourself?  It pains me to see it!!!!  And to think I even developed a…….

Just then the sound of deep 3 chime steam whistle was heard, followed by that of a mid toned 5-chime whistle, along with 2 mournful sounding 3-chime whistles, and a scary sounding single chime hooter whistle.

Chrissy: WHAT WAS THAT??!!!!

Chris: GOOD GOD CHRISSY, YOU WERE RIGHT!!!!!

Chris then removes the safety chains from Katie Belle’s wheels, opens up all of her valves, presses the electronic ignition button, and restarts her fire.  Chris then opens the main steam turret, and then opens the valves to the air compressor, the locomotive starts huffing and puffing like crazy.

Chris: Still 100 PSI on the gauge!!!! I can get this thing back up to 150 in no time!!!! It’s already dark out now that it’s 5:45, but I will defeat the Dark Railway tonight, and will get us out of here tomorrow!!!!  Thank you so very much for the pep talk Chrissy!!!! You’re a great friend!!!!

Chrissy: WHAT PEP TALK????!!!!!

Chris then gave 2 blasts on the whistle chord, released the brakes, threw the Johnson bar forward, opened the throttle all the way, and Katie Belle was rolling.

Chrissy: CHRIS WAIT!!!!!

It was too late, for Chris and Katie Belle were already thundering out of the palace and steaming off into the night.

Chrissy: Why do I have a bad feeling about this?

Just then the weather changed, and it began to rain like cats and dogs.

Chrissy: NOW I AM WORRIED!!!!

Just then Chrissy heard Aleasha’s voice.

Aleasha: DANGER ON THE ASHTABULA HORROR BRIDGE!!!!!


Chrissy then ran up the stairs out of the basement.  Meanwhile, everyone else was hanging out and mingling in the Great room keeping warm by the fire.

Lexi: WOW!!!!! It got rainy all of a sudden!!!!

Alex: SERIOUSLY!!!! It just happened out of nowhere!!!!

Wendy: Yeah!!!! It sure took me by surprise!!

Juan: Me too!!

Lilly: I sure hope Chris comes up soon, because he’ll catch cold if he stays down in the basement too long.

Aaron: He should be up soon.  He’s probably topping off the water and fuel levels on the engine.

Chrissy then came flying down through the corridors, and over the Great room where everyone was.  

Chrissy: HEY!!!! LEXI!!!!!! JUAN!!!!!!! SOMETHING IS UP!!!!

Chrissy was running so fast that she was almost out of breath by the time she met up with everyone in the great room.

Lilly: Hey Sissy!!! What’s up?

Lexi: Don’t run so hard Chrissy, or your cheer uniform will wreak again!!!!

Chrissy: That doesn’t matter now!!!!  What matters is Chris!!!!!

Lilly: Don’t tell me he rejected your confession Sissy!!!! *Giggles*

Chrissy: IT’S NOT LIKE THAT LILLY YOU BRAT!!!! THIS IS MUCH MORE SERIOUS THAN THAT!!!!

Lexi: CHRISSY, WHAT HAS GOTTEN INTO YOU???!!!!!

Chrissy: LEXI, AREN’T YOU AT ALL WORRIED ABOUT YOUR BROTHER CHRIS??!!! HE JUST TOOK OFF!!!!

Lexi: WHAT????!!!!! HE IS OUTSIDE IN THIS WEATHER???!!!!!

Chrissy: THAT IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL YOU!!!!  HE JUST TOOK THAT SO CALLED TRAIN ENGINE “KATIE BELLE,” AND TOOK OFF!!!!!

Lilly: BUT WHY WOULD HE DO THAT SISSY???!!!!

Lexi: WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!!!!! SLOW DOWN CHRISSY!!!!! Please start from the top.

Chrissy: Chris was upset that he and the rest of the guys were out searching for hours and found nothing.  He then started insulting himself, and it actually hurt……

Lexi: Yeah, he does do that whenever he gets angry, or feels discouraged.  He feels like he’s letting us down for not finding what he’s looking for, and I know the feeling.

Chrissy: Well I was trying to talk sense into him, then we hear other train whistles.  Chris then goes back into Katie Belle, starts her up, and takes off.  He tells me “Thank you for the pep talk,” and takes off!!!

Lexi: PEP TALK????!!!!!

Chrissy: I KNOW RIGHT!!!! JUST BECAUSE I’M A CHEERLEADER DOESN’T MEAN I ALWAYS PEP TALK!!!! THAT HURT!!!!

Lexi: I know it does, and hurts me too because you 2 are becoming such good friends in such a short period of time.

Chrissy: And I was just about to tell him about my feelings for him!!!

Juan, Aaron, Mike, and Alex: WE KNEW IT!!!!!!!!  YOU DO LIKE HIM AFTER ALL!!!!!

Chrissy: YES GUYS, I HAVE FALLEN FOR HIM, OKAY??!!! WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT??!!!!

Juan, Aaron, Mike, and Alex: Nothing, but we all suspected that something was up, and you guys do have good chemistry.

Chrissy: Yes we do!!!  Anyways, starts up the train, stating that he could “Defeat The Dark Railway,” tonight, then thanked me for the “Pep Talk,” and took off.  Then I heard Aleasha’s voice saying “Danger on the Bridge!”  I know the bridge had a name but I can’t remember what name.

Chrissy’s eyes began to fill with tears.

Chrissy: Not only does it hurt, but I’m now worried sick about him, and with this weather and hearing Aleasha’s voice, I am even more worried about him.

Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chrissy and tried to comfort her as best as she could.

Lexi: Hey, Chrissy Sweetie, it’s okay!!!!  We’re here for you now, and don’t worry, Chris is smart enough not to wander too far in severe weather like this.  He should be back soon.

Just then Aleasha appeared right in front of everyone.

Aleasha: There is Danger on the railroad line!!!!!!

Chrissy: SEE WHAT I MEAN??!!!!

Lexi: WHAT IS IT??!!!!

Aleasha: I bring you bad news!!!  Thunder and lightening will strike at any moment, and what’s worse; this condition was brought by the Dark Railway!!!

Lilly: WAIT WHAT??!!!

Aleasha: THIS IS ALL A TRAP AND CHRIS IS FALLING FOR IT!!!!!  DANGER LIES AHEAD ON THE ASHTABULA HORROR BRIDGE!!!!

Nina: Why is it called that??!!!!

Aleasha: It is given that name because the bridge is an exact identical replica of the iron tress bridge that was involved in the worst single train crash in US history.  On a stormy night on December 27th of 1876, the Lakeshore Express train number #5, was on its way from New York to Chicago in a heavy snow storm while crossing over an iron tress bridge spanning 70 feet over a gorge in Ashtabula, Ohio.  The bridge then gave way, and the entire train fell through, killing over 94 of 157 people.

Wendy: UH-OH!!!! I DON’T LIKE THE SOUND OF THIS!!!!

Aleasha: The Dark Railway locomotives are gonna try to surround, capture, and over power him until he is dead center on the bridge.  His only chance is to steam off the bridge as fast as possible or else he and your engine Katie Belle can plummet 71 feet into the gorge.  

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!!

Chrissy: NO!!!!!

Lilly: IT CAN’T BE TRUE!!!!!

Chrissy: PLEASE DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN!!!!!

Lexi: I’VE ALMOST LOST MY BROTHER ONCE, AND I CAN’T LOSE HIM AGAIN!!!!

Aleasha: All I can do is warn him, but otherwise it’s all up to him.

Aleasha then vanishes leaving everyone more worried than before.  Both Chrissy, Lexi, and Lilly begin to cry after hearing about the dangers from Aleasha.

Lexi: Now you know why I worry every time he’s on a steam engine!!!

Chrissy: YES!! I DO!!!!  He’ll overwork himself, and maybe………… NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO……………… I DON’T WANT TO GO THERE!!!!

Lexi: NEITHER DO I!!!!

Juan: HE’S CRAZY TO GO OUT THERE ALONE IN THIS WEATHER!!!!

Aaron: AND HE HAS NO FIREMAN WITH HIM, SO HE’S NUTS!!!!!

Lexi then leans on Alex and cries on him while Lilly leans on Juan and cries on him.
Juan and Alex then look at each other in shock and disbelief for their wishes of getting the girls the like, return their feelings come true, but they also thought of what Chris was doing was stupid.

Juan & Alex: Yeah Chris is an idiot for doing this.

Meanwhile out on the railroad line, wind and rain we bucketing at Chris and Katie Belle.  Hail was banging on Katie Belle’s boiler and cylinder jackets so hard, that it was leaving dents.  Katie Belle was huffing and puffing harder and hard as her left rear drive axle bearing began to burn up.  

Chris: Uh-Oh!!! This is not good, and I don’t have the auxiliary water tank car with me.  Maybe I should return home for the night, and try again tomorrow night with the guys when weather conditions are better.
Chris then slowed Katie Belle down to a stop, and put her Johnson bar in reverse when her headlamp went out.

Chris: JUST GREAT!!!!  Now the light bulb has gone out and the spares are with the tools.  Guess I’ll have to rely on just the cab and back up lights.

Chris then activated the tender top mounted back up lamp, but the back up lamp went out as well, and not long after, so did the cab lights.

Chris: UN-FUCKEN BELIEVABLE!!!!!

Just then Chris heard all the whistles again, and it was long until he saw a shining headlamp only feet in front of him and Katie Belle, but no locomotive.

Chris: OKAY, KATIE BELLE!!!! WE ARE NOT FUCKING AROUND ANYMORE!!!! WE ARE OUT OF HERE!!!!

Chris then gave 3 yanks on Katie Belle’s whistle, released her brakes, eased her throttle all the way open, and after much puffing and wheel slip, Katie Belle took off in reverse.
Thunder and lightening were striking left and right as Chris and Katie Belle were highballing as fast as possible.   Chris was Yanking 4 long blasts as in SOS, but no one could hear him or Katie Belle’s call for help.  It felt as if Chris was in the middle of a horror movie.

Chris: Now I know how Charlie Blackmore felt when he was running in the basement of Blackmore Manor!!!!

Just then, the mysterious 3rd standard gauged rail appeared as the troublesome ghostly 0-8-0 tank engine blew its scary hooter whistle, and showed itself right in front of Chris and Katie Belle before giving Katie Belle a nasty bump on the pilot.

Chris: OW!!!!! THAT FELT LIKE THE WEIGHT OF 15 ENGINES!!!!!

Chris then opened up Katie Belle’s throttle engine more, and slowly but surely, Katie Belle managed to pull away from the ghostly tank engine.
Just then 2 more standard gauged railroad lines showed up side by side by the line Katie Belle was on, and both East Ely Ghost Train engines, numbers 40 and 93 showed themselves by shining their headlamps on Katie Belle.

Chris: HOLY SHIT!!!!!!

Number #40: WHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  SO WE MEET AGAIN, ALL POWERFUL CRIMSON DRAGON????!!!!!!!!!!!


Number #93: WHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YOU HAVE STEAMED RIGHT BACK INTO DARK RAILWAY TERRITORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Number #40: THIS TIME YOU WON’T STOP US LIKE YOU DID BEFORE!!!!!!!!!

Number #93: AND WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL CRIMSON TRAIN?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Number #40: I GUESS THE CRIMSON DRAGON IS NOT SO TOUGH WITHOUT HER CRIMSON TRAIN!!!!!!!

Chris then opened up Katie Belle’s throttle even more, and Katie Belle managed to pull away from both East Ely Ghost train engines number #40 and number #93 only to end up in Old 27’s line of sight as she blew her mournful 3-chime whistle.

Chris: FLYING FUCKING SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  NOW ANOTHER ONE!!!!!!!!!

Chris then saw a fork in the rails and a got out his 38 caliper revolver gun out of Katie Belle’s tool box.

Chris: I never leave without this!!!!

Chris then took aim, and shot at the switch, and with an insane amount of luck, the switch changed the tracks, and diverted Katie Belle away from Old 27, but little did he know that the line he was on, was going to lead him away from the safety of the palace, and straight into danger as Aleasha’s voice came up.

Aleasha: DANGER!!!!! IT’S A TRAP!!!!! YOU MUST GET OUT OF THERE!!!!! THE TRACK YOU ARE ON WILL LEAD YOU STRAIGHT TO THE DEADLY ASHTABULA HORROR BRIDGE!!!!!!

Chris: THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP!!!!!!

Chris then spotted another switch track that could possibly lead him to safety.  Judging his moment, Chris slammed on Katie Belle’s brakes, got out his gun, shot at the switch, and got the switch points to move.
Chris then threw Katie Belle’s Johnson bar forwards, released her brakes, rammed her throttle back open, and after much more wheel slip, got her to take off and divert onto another track.

Chris: Now to find our way home, but with all electrical lines cut, we can’t really know where we’re going.

Just then the cursed 311 began charging straight towards Chris and Katie Belle with his headlamp shining brightly and whistle blowing angrily.

Chris: THERE IS JUST NO ESCAPING THEM!!!!!

Chris then threw Katie Belle’s Johnson bar back into reverse, and after much wheel spin, Katie Belle took off flying in reverse down the line.  Little did Chris realize that he had fallen right into the Dark Railway’s trap.

Chris: WE’LL BE HOME SOON KATIE BELLE!!!! I PROMISE YOU WE WILL!!!!

Just then Katie Belle started to pull over and work water as her axle bearing burned hotter and hotter until the bearing was burning so badly, that the smell of the grease perforated its way into the cab.

Chris: THAT BLAST AXLE BEARING HAS TO BE REPLACED!!!!!  I’LL REPLACE IT FIRST THING WHEN WE GET BACK!!!!!!

But it was too late.  The burning axle bearing became too much for Katie Belle to handle, and it wasn’t long until Katie Belle slowed down to less than 10 miles an hour onto the Ashtabula Horror Iron Tress bridge.

Number #40: THERE IS NO ESCAPING US CRIMSON DRAGON!!!!!!!

Number #93: HOW DID YOU GET SO WEAK, ALL POWERFUL CRIMSON DRAGON?!!!!!

Number #40: NOT SO TOUGH NOW ARE YA????!!!!!!

Just then a crazy man named Cameron Hurley climbed out of Number #40’s cab and angrily laughed as he watched Katie Belle back herself into a corner.

Cameron: HAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  MY MY, HAVE YOU FALLEN CRIMSON DRAGON!!!!!! AND TO BE PILOTED BY SUCH A WEAK LIL WANNABE ENGINEER!!!!!! PATHETIC!!!!

Chris then continued to yank SOS on the whistle chord but it was no use.  

Cameron: DON’T EVEN BOTHER!!!!! NO ONE WILL COME TO SAVE YOU THIS TIME CHRISSY!!!!!!!  THAT’S RIGHT!!!!!! I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!!!!!  YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD SAVE THIS ENGINE, AND START A WHOLE NEW LIFE FOR YOUR FRIENDS AND PRECIOUS LITTLE SISTER!!!!!!  BUT GUESS WHAT, YOU WERE WRONG!!!!!

Just then Katie Belle’s water level dropped out of the water glass causing her Mapo to activate, trigger the emergency fuel shut off switch, and put out her fire.

Chris: SHIT!!!! I HAD YOUR INJECTOR OPEN UP ALL THE WAY, BUT THAT BURNING AXLE BEARING CAUSED YOU TO USE UP MORE WATER THAN YOUR NORMAL INTAKE!!!!

Just then with a shrieking crack and loud……….

BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The left rear drive wheel sheered right off the axle, causing part of her chassis to bend and hit the ties on the bridge.  Poor Katie Belle was stalled dead center in the middle of the deadly Ashtabula Horror Bridge with a broken drive axle axle.

Cameron: LOOKS LIKE YOU 2 WON’T BE GOING ANYWHERE!!!!!! AND THAT MEANS………………

Just then, the Ashtabula horror bridge gave way and fell out from underneath Katie Belle, causing her and Chris to plunge 71 feet down into the gorge below.

Cameron: SO LONG CRIMSON DRAGON & CHRISSY!!!!!!!!!!! BA HAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAHHHHH HAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle then slammed down onto the bed of the shallow waters of a river with a loud……….

CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The impact was so bad, that her front cow-catcher party sheered right off, part of her left hand cylinder broke right off, her valve gear jammed, her ash-pan jammed and crumpled up the bottom end of the firebox, her frame got twisted and mangled, a majority of her cab was destroyed, one of her tender axles broke, along with her front pilot truck axle. The once proudly restored Katie Belle, was now once again a broken down Wreck and Chris was 10 yards away from her after being thrown out of her cab from impact.
Chris was severely injured with a punctured lung, fractured collar bone, multiple shatter ribs, 2nd and 3rd degree burns from ruptured steam passages, along with a torsioned left testicle, and a huge amount of blood loss.

Chris: Man I am stupid……….

Chris then slowly tried to get up, but was in such agony, that he didn’t even have the strength to stand.   Using his right arm, he pulled himself closer to Katie Belle, slowly but surely.   Moving through the shallow water was agonizingly painful, and Chris’s vision was very weak given that his eyelashes were pointing inward on his eye lids causing his eyes extreme pain.  Nevertheless, Chris made his way through the water, until his right hand was finally on the bottom of Katie Belle’s right hand side foot step that lead up into her cab.

Chris: Okay, it’s now or never………..

Using all of his remaining strength, Chris pulled himself up Katie Belle’s cab step, and made his way back into Katie Belle’s cab.
Chris was having difficulty breathing given that one of his lungs was punctured, and every time he took a breath, it would put him in great pain.

Chris then looked up through Katie Belle’s cab hatch as the night sky continued to rain cats and dogs.

Chris: Is this how I’ll die?  I guess I deserve it………  I’m sorry Lexi…………

Chris then fell unconscious just as a set of standard gauge rails appeared right by the river.   Soon after, the shuffling sounds of familiar shay geared steam logging locomotive were heard, and low and behold, it was former Graham County Railroad Company shay engine number #1925, and who should be in her cab running her, but Big Joe.

Big Joe: GUYS LOOK!!!! THERE HE IS!!!!!!

Tom then climbs into the cab of crane as Doug, Jack Anderson, Jack Verdi, and Robert hook and secure the hooks and chains onto Katie Belle.

Tom: DON’T WORRY CHRIS, YOU’RE GONNA BE JUST FINE!!!!!

DOUG: READY???????!!!!!!!!!!!

Tom: READY!!!!!!!

Tom then pulls the main lever, and Katie Belle is then lifted out of the riverbed and placed onto a flat car.   The crew then get to work on securing Katie Belle onto the flat car, and lifting Chris out of her cab and getting him into the caboose as fast as they can.  
Once Chris is safely on board in the Caboose, everyone else then climbs aboard and gives Engineer Big Joe the green light.
Tom rings the bell and opens up the firing valve with Big Joe gives 2 blasts on the whistle, releases the brakes, eases the throttle open, and Graham County gets shuffling back home to the palace.  Doctors were radioed and will be waiting to begin performing medical work on Chris right away and mechanics will be getting all the machines and tools ready to get repairs on Katie Belle done ASAP.

Rebirth Of The Crimson Dragon

When Chris opened his eyes, he found himself in the bed of the Palace’s Master Suite all bandaged up with multiple stitches and drains all over his chest, along with a large sling on his arm.  He also felt a few a couple stitches on his left scrotum along with his eyelashes shortened.    He also saw multiple monitors attached to him as well as multiple empty blood backs from a massive transfusion.
He also looked down in front of him and saw Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly all fast asleep at his bedside.
Wendy and Nina were also at his bedside but were wide away and frowning angrily at Chris.

Wendy: FINALLY YOU’RE UP!!!!!

Nina: YOU HAVE BEEN OUT FOR 2 DAYS STRAIGHT!!!!!!

Wendy: THESE GIRLS HAVE BEEN CRYING SO HARD THAT THEY HAVE EXHAUSTED THEMSELVES FROM IT!!!!

Nina: THEY’VE LITTERALLY RUN OUT OF TEARS FROM ALL THE CRYING ALL BECAUSE YOU JUST HAD TO GO OUT ON YOUR OWN AND PLAY THE HERO!!!!!

Wendy: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW WORRIED WE HAVE BEEN ABOUT YOU???!!!!!!

Both Nina and Wendy began to cry after being relieved of Chris’s survival.

Nina: IF WE WOULD HAVE LOST YOU, WE WOULDN’T KNOW HOW TO BREAK THE NEWS TO LEXI……………

Wendy: SHE TOLD US ON HOW SHE ALMOST LOST YOU ON YOUR STUDY ABROAD IN SCANDINAVIA WHEN YOU GOT TRAPPED IN AN AVALANCHE………………

Nina: AND SHE WORRIES ABOUT YOU ALL THE TIME WHENEVER YOU TAKE KATIE BELLE OUT FOR A RUN…………….

Wendy: IT WORRIES US TOO ESPECIALLY AFTER SEEING THEM WHEN FULLY STEAMED UP ON FULL POWER……….

Nina: AND SEEING SOME OF THE DAMAGE IT HAS DONE TO YOU…………..

Wendy: LEXI WOULDN’T FORGIVE HERSELF IF SHE LOST YOU…………….

Nina: NEITHER WOULD CHRISSY.  TO HER, YOU’RE HER NEW BEST FRIEND, AND HAVE BECOME VERY SPECIAL TO HER.  LOSING YOU WOULD BREAK HER HEART………

Wendy: AND TO LILLY YOU’RE LIKE THE BIG BROTHER SHE’S NEVER HAD BUT ALWAYS WANTED…………….

Nina: SAME THING FOR WENDY & I……………

Wendy: YOU’RE NOT JUST OUR BOSS, OR JUST A FRIEND……………

Nina: YOU’RE LIKE A BIG BROTHER TO US, AND WE ALWAYS WANTED AN OLDER SIBLING………………

Wendy: AND TO NOT INFORM US ON WHERE YOU WERE GOING OR WHAT YOU WERE DOING………………..

Nina: IT’S INSULTING AND HURTFUL……………………

Wendy: AND YOU’VE SCARED US ALL HALF TO DEATH………………….

Nina: YOU’RE SO LUCKY BIG JOE AND THE GUYS FOUND YOU WHEN THEY DID OR YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN A GONER……………….

Wendy: AND WE WOULD HAVE HAD TO BREAK THE NEWS TO LEXI, CHRISSY, AND LILLY………………….

Nina: AND WE’D NEVER WANT TO DO THAT……………………

Wendy: IT WOULD BREAK OUR HEARTS IF WE HAD TO……………………….

Nina and Wendy: AND WE’VE JUST LOST OUR PARENTS, AND NOW WE ALMOST LOST YOU TOO!!!!!!!  WE CAN’T HANDLE LOSING ANOTHER LOVED ONE……………

Nina and Wendy couldn’t hold back any long and burst out crying really hard.

Chris: Girls, I’m sooooo sorry for making you worry.  I was an idiot to think that I could tackle such a huge and dangerous task all on my own.  I should have known better…………..

Wendy: That doesn’t matter now………

Nina: What matters no is that you’re safe……

Chris: Once again I’m sorry girls…………
By the way, where are all the guys?

Nina: They have gone off on Union Pacific 4466 to investigate The Dark Railway.

Wendy: Your accident got them interested, and now they’re really curious to find out what happened.

Chris: Well, while they’re on that, I gotta go fix Katie Belle.

Chris then slowly got up in agony and a lot of pain, but he couldn’t bare the thought of having Katie Belle all badly damaged and knew he had to get to work on repairing her, but Wendy and Nina wouldn’t let him get up.

Wendy: DON’T GET UP NOW!!!!

Nina: THE DOCTOR SAID TO WAIT AT LEAST 2 WEEKS!!!!!

Chris: 2 WEEKS??!!!! I can’t wait that long.

Chris then got out of bed, got to work on shaving, brushing his teeth, taking a shower, putting on his clothes, grabbing his cell phone & charger, and marching out of the Master Suite and down to the basement.  Both Wendy and Nina looked at each other in shock and disbelief about what they had seen.

Wendy: WOW!!!! He sure is stubborn…….

Nina: It takes a lot to keep him from completing a task.

Nina & Wendy: Note to selves, never get in Chris’s way when he’s on a mission.

Meanwhile, Chris was making his way down into the basement, and upon his arrival, Chris’s eyes filled with tears as he laid eyes on the badly damaged Katie Belle.

Chris: OH MY GOD……………..Awwwwwwwww Katie Belle…………….. What did they do to you?.................More like what have I done to you?..................

Chris then walked over to Katie Belle and gently stroked her front number plate lovingly and gently……………

Chris: Don’t worry sweetie, I’ll fix you up and have you back on the rails in no time……..

Chris then saw all Graham County number #1925 and McCloud River Railroad number #18 sitting a few yards away from Katie Belle and her train, and he also noticed all of the machines and tools fully unloaded and out on the basement floor ready to be put to use.
Chris then picked up his telephone and called the butler.

Chris: Good morning….

Butler: Good to hear your voice Master Mandez, Sir.  How can I help you?

Chris: Try to get as many of the Palace’s machinests, carpenters, mechanics, and blacksmiths over here as possible.  There is a lot of work to be done.

Butler: Very well, I am on it right away Sir.

Chris: Thank you, and also, keep all the girls, and the guys out of the basement until repairs on Katie Belle are complete.  They shouldn’t see her in the current state she is in.  I will take pictures of her now to show before, during, and after shots.

Butler: Very well Sir.

Chris then hung up the phone, got out his cell phone, and shot pictures of the Damaged Katie Belle left and right.

Chris: Let it be known that this is the last time that this engine will be seen in this state and badly damaged.   When everyone but those repairing her sees her again, she will be a restored and brand new engine.  Heck, she will be restored better than the way she was before.

And with that, Chris set to work on powering up all of the machines, and began disassembling Katie Belle piece by piece until she was stripped down to her bare frame and boiler shell.
Shortly after being stripped down, all of the Palace’s mechanics, machinests, carpenters, and blacksmiths showed up and set to work on repairs at once.
Katie Belle’s damaged cab was then removed and all the destroyed wooden planks were removed and replaced while the damaged planks were sanded down and repaired.  The tender tank was then removed from the frame and the bottom end was removed and replaced.  The pilot deck was then removed and sanded down for a new coat of paint.  All of the plumbing and piping was then removed, rethreaded, re-bent, and refabricated.  The boiler was then unbolted and removed from the frame, and had all of its tubes and tube sheets taken out.  The firebox had all staybolts removed, and then damaged and bent firebox was dropped and taken out.

Chris: This firebox was way too small, so we will build her a much larger firebox, and add more boiler tubes for her to steam better.

Chris and the repairers then raised the damaged and mangled frame and set to work on removing the valve gear, the pony truck, the tender truck, the cylinders, the dry pipe, and all 3 drive axles.
The left hand side connecting and drive rods were bent like spaghetti noodles after the mortal damage they’ve received, but they were fixable.   The Rods were then bent back into shape while the twisted and mangle frame was partially dismantled, and gently finessed back into shape.  
All of the brass axle bearings were removed and replaced with proper bronze bearings.  A brand new axle was machined for the rear driving wheels, and the 2 rear driving wheels were removed from the broken axle and gently pressed onto the new axle.  
The pony and tender trucks were dismantled and repaired while new wheels and axles were installed to replace the broken ones.
Work was occurring around the clock with constant hammering, beating, and welding going on.  Days past as doctors run in and out of the basement to check on Chris while he was constantly at work repairing the damaged locomotive.  Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly can only wait anxiously at the top of the stairs by the basement door and hope that everything is alright.
One the 5th day of work, Doctor Lyle comes walking out of the basement all flabbergasted after what he has seen.

Dr. Lyle: YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT I AM SEEING!!!!

Lexi: Is everything alright with Chris?

Chrissy: Is he okay??!!!

Dr. Lyle: Despite having a broken collar bone, I am surprised to say that his arm will be out of a sling in less than 2 days due to a remarkable recovery.  Also I just took the stitches of his left testicle and it’s healing very well.  He still has some trouble breathing but it’s to be expected after a lung gets punctured.  The drains and stitches will remain in his chest for a little while longer, but otherwise he’s recovering very well.

Lilly: WOW!!!!

Dr. Lyle: That isn’t the half of it!!!   The work going on that damaged locomotive is mind blowing.   From day 1 I just saw a mangled mess, and heck, it didn’t even look like a locomotive anymore.  Now on day 5, the engine is looking like a locomotive again.

Chrissy: WOW!!!!  Us girls haven’t seen it, all we remember is Chris being medically carried out of the basement and up to his room.  

Dr. Lyle: Me, Dr. Kline, Dr. Murphy, and Dr. Henry, were all called in once we heard about the accident, and on a scale of 1-10 on how bad things were, Chris was at least a 9.  How he survived a 71 foot fall is beyond amazing, but the real amazing thing is, the locomotive received the brunt force when she hit the bottom of the gorge.   The impact threw Chris out of the cab and that’s when things went from bad to worse.

Lexi: This is like the avalanche accident from Scandinavia all over again……….

Chrissy: I was just as scared as you Lexi……….

Dr. Lyle: He’s lucky that he survived the fall at all.  Most people who fall into a gorge like that during a hike go straight to the morgue and not the emergency room.

Lexi: It was the same case with the avalanche accident many years ago.

Dr. Lyle: Someone is looking out for him, and he is one tough person to break.  Another thing for sure, he’s dedicated and determined to restore that locomotive back to the way it was before the accident.  He hasn’t stopped working on the engine for the past 5 days, and is still working hard to bring it back to life.  Talk about dedication.

Chrissy: He has no idea how much he has made us worry.

Lilly: We’re gonna scold him good the moment he gets out of there.

Lexi: Got that right Lilly.

Dr. Lyle: Yikes!!! I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes if that’s the case.

Meanwhile work on Katie Belle continued going on around the clock, and Katie Belle was looking better and better by the hour.  Her damaged left hand side cylinder that was broken in half, had its jagged edges cut off, smoothed over, and a new second half was welded in place with a nicely bored and honed sleeve.  A much larger firebox was made and installed along with new tube sheets with 15 extra boiler tubes.  The steam chests on both sides were repaired with new valves and new valve yokes.  
On day 5 the locomotive was almost completely reassembled with the frame bent back into shape, the boiler and cylinders back on the frame, along with the cab and tender tank fully repaired and back on the frame.  The pony truck was reassembled with new wheels and back underneath the locomotive as well as the tender truck.  
The damaged smoke stack that was also broken in half, had its jagged edges cut off, and sanded down with a new top half of the smoke stack.  
On day 6, all 6 drive wheels on all 3 drive axles were reinstalled along with the connecting rods and valve gear.  All of the boiler back head gauges and pipes were also reinstalled along with the Mapo.  A ball valve injector was installed on the fireman’s side of the locomotive, new upgraded electronic computer components were also installed to make the locomotive adaptable to having a laptop and satellite navigation installed.  The locomotive’s air compressor was rebuilt and reinstalled along with the air tanks.  New steel running boards were made and installed on the sides of the locomotive.  The electronic ignition was also reinstalled along with brand new water sight glasses and better lighting.  New solar and lunar panels were installed on the cab roof top to operate the cab lights incase if another electrical power failure would happen.  The boiler jacket was completely smoothed over and dent free as were the cylinder jackets.
On day 7 were the final finishing touches.  Beautiful crimson red paint was reapplied to the locomotive along with the beautiful dark purple for the pin stripping along with a lot of chrome polish to polish all of the locomotive’s silver chrome bands, chrome hand rails, chrome running board sides, chrome cylinder jackets, chrome dome centers, chrome gab irons, chrome headlamp bezels, chrome cylinder oil caps, and chrome injector pipes.  All of the chrome was polished to the point that all of the chrome shined like pure silver.  Beautiful new golden yellow ribbon banners with lettering was being applied to the sides of the tender tank with beautiful purple letters stating Calumet & Helica Mining Company to honor the Torch Lake locomotive’s road name.  The same beautiful purple and red pin striping was applied all over the locomotives domes, cab, tender, headlamp, new cow catcher, drive wheels, and bell bracket. The same blood red striping was painted on the long spokes of the cow catcher, and the number 22 was once again painted on one side of the headlamp with a painting of Ribbon Falls on the other side.  The name Katie Belle was reapplied to the side panels of the cab in the same beautiful pink that they were before.  The number 22 was soon reapplied to the rear of the tender tank, and the sides of the sand dome while the beautiful golden star plate was polished with red paint work touched up.  Beautiful new black smoke box supports and a beautiful refurbished pilot deck were now proudly back on the front of the locomotive.
With the locomotive 98 percent back together, the boiler was filled with water with a pressure gauge to hydro test her.  But while she was being hydro tested and fitted with new 200 and 210 PSI safety valves, 2 vital components were missing.  And those vital components turned out to be a whistle and a bell, both of which were lost during the accident.

Chris: CRAP!!!!!!  We are literally complete and we don’t have a whistle and a bell for the engine.

Just then the butler as well as 2 of the carpenters were walkingdown the palace corridors with a massive treasure box.   Everyone was in shock and awe as they watched the massive treasure box being carried throughout the palace.

Aaron: What’s with the treasure box?

Alex: I didn’t know that there was treasure here!!!

Juan: It’s to be expected given that we’re living in a palace.

Wendy: WHAT IS IN THE TREASURE BOX???!!!!

Nina: I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT’S IN THERE!!!!

Mike: IT MUST BE BOOZE!!!!!!

Lexi: IS THAT ALL YOU THINK ABOUT MICHAEL???!!!!!!

Chrissy: MY GOD, THAT THING IS HUGE!!!!!!

Lilly: WOW!!!!!!! I WONDER WHAT’S IN THERE AND WHY IT’S SO BIG!!!!

The butler and 2 carpenters then carried the massive treasure box down to the basement and dropped it off right next to Katie Belle.

Butler: Master Mandez, we were asked to deliver this to you.  I believe these are the parts you are looking for.

Chris: Okay………

Chris then opened the knob to the treasure chest.

Chris: It’s all coming down to this……..

Chris then slowly and carefully opened the treasure chest, and low and behold, inside was a beautiful single chime steam whistle and locomotive bell.  Both the whistle and bell shined like gold and had beautiful red interiors.

Chris: WOW!!!!! THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!

Chris was completely blown away by the sheer beauty of the bell and whistle, and low and behold, a note was found along with the whistle and bell.  Chris then picks up the note and reads it.

Chris: I wonder what this says……………

To the one who finds this Treasure,

This is the original whistle and bell worn by the Mighty Crimson Dragon.  The sounds of this mighty and majestic whistle kept the Dark Railway at bay for many years until on one fateful dark and stormy night when the Crimson Dragon disappeared from our world.  On the night that she left, only her whistle and bell were found, and were since encased in this treasure box for protection for incase the Dark Railway was to show itself again.  
For the one who has found this whistle and bell, please take good care of them, and be sure to mount them back on the Crimson Dragon for when she returns.

Butler: I received this box from Aleasha many years ago, and since she insists that this locomotive is the Crimson Dragon’s reincarnation, I felt that this engine must be the one to wear the original Crimson Dragon’s whistle and bell.  I know they will adorn her beautifully.

Chris: Thank you so very much.  I will honor and treasure them.

Chris then gently lifts the bell out of the treasure box, and carefully installs it in Katie Belle’s bell cradle.  Chris then ties the bell rope onto the bell cradle, then runs it down to the cab, and ties to a hook on the cab’s back wall.  Chris then tugged on the bell chord, and

CLANG!!!!!!!!

Chris: WOW!!!!!!!

The bell made a beautifully loud and clear sounding echo throughout the basement.  The tone was so pure that the sound of the echo continued for more than 15 seconds.

Chris: That is perhaps the most beautiful sounding bell I have ever heard in my life.   It sounds exactly like the bell on Torch Lake but better.

Chris then walked back to the treasure chest and gently lifted the beautiful plain-bell single-chime whistle.  He then slowly and carefully screwed it on top of the steam dome, and hooked up the whistle arm and whistle chord.
Chris then took a look at the pressure gauge on top of the steam dome and was happy to see that pressure was holding and no water leaks were occurring.

Chris: Alrighty, it’s 1:45 p.m. and the engine appears to be done, so only one way to find out….

Chris then grabbed the water hose from the auxiliary water tank car and placed the house in the water hatch of the water tank.  Chris then got the fuel hose from the fuel storage tanks, and placed the hose in the locomotive’s fuel hatch on the tender tank.
Chris then jumped off the tender, and into the cab, and places his hand right by the electronic ignition switch.

Chris: It’s all coming down to this………

Chris then opened up the firing valve along with the atomizer and blower valves, pressed the button for the electronic ignition, and lit a fire in the firebox.   Chris then opened up all the valves on the steam turret, opened up the injectors and dumped the excess water out of the boiler until the water site glasses showed 2 nuts of water.  Chris then drained and cleaned out the water site glasses before filling them back up to 2 nuts of water.
Over the next several hours, Katie Belle’s boiler pressure climbed until her low pressure safety valve went off.  Chris then opened up her main valve on the steam turret to her air compressor and with a loud and powerful…………..

BANG………BANG……………BANG………..BANG………..BANG………..BANG……………BANG………………BANG………….BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle was ready to go.

Chris: Well it’s 3:40 p.m. and we’re ready to go, but before we test her out, I need to shower.

Chris then walked into the basement’s bathroom, shaved, brushed his teeth, took a shower, and put on a change of clothes.  He slapped on his gray long sleeved shirt that had a small picture of a golden yellow dragon on the left hand side of the chest on the front, and a massive picture of the same golden yellow dragon on the back.
Chris then slid on his Banana Republic Boot cut jeans along with his socks & Ecco shoes, fixed his hair, walked out of the bathroom, removed the safety chains from underneath Katie Belle’s wheels, and climbed into her cab.
Chris then released the brakes, threw the Johnson bar into reverse, and gently eased the throttle open, and Katie Belle moved with a start…..  It’s like she was a brand new locomotive.

Chris: WHAT THE???!!!!!  That was not even 2 and ½ notches and she takes off!!!!!

Katie Belle then backed onto her train with a loud and solid………

CLUNK!!!!!!

Chris then instantly slammed on Katie Belle’s brakes, shut her throttle, and threw her Johnson bar forward before climbing on top of her tender tank, climbing down her tender tank ladder, and set to work on hooking up the water and air hoses, and the safety chains.  
Chris then climbed back up the tender tank ladder, shut off the valves to the water and fuel hoses, and pulled them out of the oil and water hatches.  The mechanics then wrapped up the fuel and water hoses and put them back.

Chris: Alrighty.  Before we can go, we need to clean up this train until it shines, now lets get to work.

All the palace’s maids and cleaning people came running into the basement and set to work on cleaning and vacuuming out the carpets in all of the train cars.   All the carpenters and mechanics set to work on polishing all of the train cars while Chris set to work on polishing up the locomotive.

Meanwhile everyone was waiting in the Great room and could all hear Katie Belle huffing and puffing.

Lexi: WHAT THE HECK IS THAT???!!!!

Chrissy: IT SOUNDS LIKE A DRAGON!!!!!!

Lilly: DO DRAGONS EVEN EXIST?????!!!!!!!

Aaron: IT MUST BE KATIE BELLE!!!!

Juan: It sounds like her!!!

Mike: NO WAY!!!!

Alex: I’d know the sounds of a steam engine when I hear one.

Wendy: But it sounds very powerful!!!!!

Nina: Yeah, the ground is shaking!!!!!!!!

Big Joe: It would be a miracle if that engine ever runs again.

Robert: Yeah, to be honest, she’s just too far gone to rebuild.

Lexi: One way to find out everyone, so lets go!!!!

Big Joe: Well, I’ll go sneak into the basement and find out for myself.

Robert: Same here!!!

Tom: I’m with them.

The train guys all then up and leave, and march down in the basement as everyone else hears all the shock in a bunch of curse.

Big Joe, Tom, Jack Verdi, Jack Anderson, Doug, and Robert: HOLY FUCKEN SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!  HOW IN THE WORLD DID HE DO THAT WITHIN SUCH A SHORT TIME???!!!!!!

Doctor Lyle then comes running out of the basement, also in a bunch of shock and awe.

Dr. Lyle: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!  YOU GUYS GOTTA SEE THIS BECAUSE THAT IS DEFINITELY NOT THE SAME ENGINE THAT JUST ARRIVED ALL MANGLED ON A FLAT CAR!!!!!!

Meanwhile down in the basement………

Chris: HAAAAA HAAAAAAA!!!!!! You guys didn’t think this engine could be fixed huh??!!! LOL!!!!!  WELL LOOK AT HER NOW!!!!!!!

Big Joe: I had my doubts man, but still…………

Robert: How you did it completely blows me away!!!!!!!!

Tom: That engine was a pile of scrap when we got it out of the water last week. LOL!!!

Doug: I don’t know how you did it but you did.

Jack Verdi: It’s amazing what you can do with the right tools, machines, and materials.  

Jack Anderson: IS MOST OF THIS STUFF STILL ORIGINAL TO THE ENGINE??

Chris: Yes.  A lot of the original is still on there.  Well, not original original, as in factory original from Mason, but original from the Mandez Restoration months ago.
Same frame, same boiler, same engine set, same wheels, same cab, most of the same piping, the same domes, same side rods, same pilot deck, same tender tank, same pony and tender truck, and even the same boiler and cylinder jackets.  Half of the left hand side cylinder is brand new, all the bearings are brand new, the rear drive axle is brand new, the firebox, staybolts, tubes, and tube sheets are brand new.  The top half of the stack is brand new.   The headlamp housing is partially brand new, the cowcatcher is brand new, the paint work is brand new, the ball valve injector on the left hand side is new, and the bell and whistle are brand new.
Also the boiler pressure was bumped up from 150 PSI to 200 PSI, and it already makes a huge difference.

Big Joe: I can’t believe it man!!!!  This locomotive is beautiful!!!! Heck, I’d say it’s even more beautiful than it was before!!!!!

Robert: I can’t get over how it went from being almost completely destroyed to completely beautiful again and in such a short period of time.

Chris: Non-stop work around the clock including multiple drinks off coffee, lattes, Frappuccino’s, sodas, and goodness knows what else to keep us all awake.  

Tom: Well, whatever you did, it worked, and now you’re engine is back up and running again.

Chris: Well, she’s only moved a few feet to back on to her train, but I will tell you that this throttle is much more responsive than it was before.  Just 2 notches will get you going.  She’s no doubt more powerful than she was before, and sure fires a lot better than before.

Jack Verdi: Larger firebox must take part in it no doubt.

Chris: That is probably the main reason, larger firebox, more heat, more steam, and more steam means more power and response.  
Now I am yet to hear the whistle, but the bell on this engine is GORGEOUS!!!!!!

Big Joe: I really wanna hear it man!!!

Robert: Me too!!!!

Chris: Hold on just a moment, it’s time to open the massive basement doors.

On the other side of the basement doors were Juan, Mike, Aaron, Alex, Wendy, Nina, Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly all anxiously waiting for Chris and Katie Belle.   They all couldn’t help but notice all the steam coming out from underneath the massive basement doors that led outside.

Big Joe, Robert, Tom, Doug, Jack Verdi, Jack Anderson, along with all of the mechanics, blacksmiths, carpenters, and machinests unlocked the large latches and slowly pushed open the massive doors when clouds of smoke and steam gushed out of the basement into the outside air.
Chris then gave 2 long yanks on the whistle chord.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: HOLY SMOKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone then jumped for Katie Belle’s new whistle sounded extremely powerful and majestic.

Mike: WHAT THE HELL????!!!!!!!

Juan: WOW!!!!!!!!  I HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THAT BEFORE IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!

Aaron: THAT IS THE BEST SOUNDING WHISTLE EVER!!!!!!!!!

Alex: NO JOKE, AND THAT WAS JUST 2 BLASTS!!!!!!!!!!

Nina: WOW!!!!!!

Wendy: I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN!!!!!!!

Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!

Lilly: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!

No one could really see for the basement doors were still steamy until a powerful and bright headlamp shined through the clouds of steam.
Chris then opened up the firing valve and in an instant had a powerful and roaring fire that caused the firebox to vibrate like crazy.   He then released the brakes, and eased his throttle gently, and Katie Belle then steamed out of the basement.
Chris then pulled on the bell chord and rang Katie Belle’s beautiful new bronze bell with a…………

CLANG!!!!!!!!!! CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-CLANG, CLANG-ClANG……..

The bell ringing kept going on and on for Chris could not get enough of the beautiful sound of Katie Belle’s brand new beautiful bell.   Everyone else was completely blown away by it too, as the proud and beautifully restored locomotive steamed out of the basement and into the open for the first time since her accident.
Chris then released the bell, shut Katie Belle’s throttle, locked on her brakes, and gave one very long blast on her whistle.

WHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle had been restored and the Crimson Dragon would soon be reborn.

To be continued.

Chapter 13

The Magical Railway Comes To Life

Katie Belle stopped right outside the basement with her beautiful crimson red train in tow.  Chris then stepped out of the cab, dropped the safety chains underneath the drive wheels and proudly stood next to Katie Belle as he polished up her number 2 cylinder.  It was like the accident had never happened.

Lexi’s feelings and emotions all hit her right then and there as she walked up to Chris and slapped him hard on the face.

Lexi: *SLAP!!!!!!!* CHRIS!!!!!!!!! YOU STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!   ARE YOU TRYING TO BREAK MY HEART AGAIN LIKE YOU DID IN THAT AVALANCHE ACCIDENT BACK IN SCANDINAVIA YEARS AGO??????!!!!!!!!!!  DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW WORRIED SICK I HAVE BEEN???????!!!!!!!!!! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW THIS MAKES ME FEEL OR HOW MUCH IT HURTS?????????!!!!!!!!!  I’VE ALMOST LOST YOU BACK THEN, AND I ALMOST LOST YOU NOW!!!!!!!!!  CHRISSY, LILLY, AND I WERE CRYING OUR EYES OUT THE MOMENT WE HEARD ABOUT YOUR ACCIDENT ON THE BRIDGE!!!!!!!!  WE DIDN’T THINK YOU’D MAKE IT, AND ALMOST GOT OUR HEARTS BROKEN BECAUSE OF IT!!!!!   THEN WHAT DO YOU DO RIGHT AFTER YOU WAKE UP????  YOU MARCH RIGHT DOWN TO THE BASEMENT, SET TO WORK ON YOUR STUPID TRAIN, LOCK YOURSELF UP IN THE BASEMENT AND WORK YOURSELF TO DEATH FOR 7 DAYS STRAIGHT!!!!!!  YOU DIDN’T EVEN BOTHER LEAVING US A NOTE OR EVEN COME UP TO SAY HI AND TELL US THAT YOU WERE OKAY!!!!!!!!  DO YOU KNOW HOW THAT MAKES ME FEEL???????!!!!!!!!!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH IT HURTS ME??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I’M YOU’RE BABY SISTER, AND YOU’RE THE LAST MEMBER OF MY FAMILY AND IT HURTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  NOT TO MENTION YOU’VE BECOME CHRISSY’S BEST FRIEND AND IT HURTS HER TOO!!!!!!!!!  IT ALSO HURTS LILLY BECAUSE YOU’RE LIKE THE BIG BROTHER SHE ALWAYS WANTED BUT NEVER HAD!!!!!!!  YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW WORRIED WE HAVE BEEN ABOUT YOU!!!!!!!!! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH IT HURTS!!!!!!!!!!!   You don’t know how scared I was of losing you, like how I almost lost you in the avalanche………….

Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chris, and cried her eyes out.  She had cried harder than she had ever cried in her life.
Chris then wrapped his arms around her and gently stroked her and held her.

Chris: Baby Sis………What have I done to you?.............

All Lexi could do was cry as she held Chris tightly in her arms as Chris stroked her.

Lexi: I love you so very much Chris…………. I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND MORE THAN ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!  IF I LOST YOU, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’D DO!!!!!!!  WHO’D BE THERE TO HOLD ME WHEN I’M SAD?  WHO’D BE THERE TO GIVE ME MY BUBBLE BATHS?  WHO’D BE THERE TO KISS ME?  WHO’D BE THERE TO GROPE ME AND DRIVE ME CRAZY??!!!! WHO’D BE THERE FOR ME TO TEASE???!!!!  WHO’D BE THERE TO HELP GUIDE ME IN MY LIFE, AND HELP ME GROW UP???!!!!!!!  WHO’D BE THERE FOR ME TO CONFIDE IN??!!!!!  WHO’D BE THERE TO WIPE MY TEARS DURING ANOTHER HEART BREAK????!!!!!!!!!
NO ONE, THAT’S WHO!!!!!!!  I JUST LOST A MOMMY & DADDY, AS WELL AS A BIG SISTER, AND I CAN’T LOSE A BROTHER!!!!!!!!!  I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH CHRIS THAT IT HURTS……………I’M YOUR BABY SISTER, AND YOU’RE MY BIG BROTHER!!!!!!!!  YOU’RE ALL I’VE GOT AS THE LAST MEMBER OF MY FAMILY AND I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love you so much Chris………….

All Lexi could do was continue to cry her eyes out as Chris held her and stroked her.  He then planted a few kisses on her forehead.
Chrissy and Lilly were also crying very hard for they felt that Lexi was speaking for them as well.

Chris: Baby Sis………..I am sooooooooooo very sorry to have worried you………..
I’m sorry for being so selfish.  I was too busy trying to find a way to get us out of here and I let my pride get in the way.  I then fall into the Dark Railway’s trap and end up hurting you, the one who cares about me the most, my precious baby sister.  What have I done to you?............

Lexi: Right now that doesn’t matter to me, because what matters to me is that you’re okay, and that I still have you to care for me.  And how much I love you……………..
You have no idea how precious you are to me big brother…………

Chris: If there is anything, I am glad I was the one who got trapped in the avalanche back in Scandinavia and not you.  You were only 11 at the time and still just a baby, so it must have been awfully hard on you, but I'm still glad you weren't the one in the avalanche.  And I am also glad that it was me who fell 71 feet down into the gorge off the bridge and not you.  

Lexi: Big brother you are such an idiot…………….

Chris: I know, I am an idiot……………….

Lexi: But you’re my idiot, and I love you no matter what.

Chris: And I love you too baby Sis.  And you’re still the cutest cheerleader of the bunch.  You have also become so beautiful Lil Sis, and you have no idea how proud I am of you.  

Lexi: Good answer. *Giggles*
AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you so very much, you have no idea how much that means to me.

Lexi then kissed Chris on the cheek and again on the forehead, and Chris kissed her back.  Chris then lifted up her cheerleading skirt, and gently groped her butt, spankies, and felt panties underneath causing her to freak out.

Lexi: *FREAKS OUT AND SCREAMS*  AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! CHRIS!!!!! YOU PERVERT!!!!!!!!!!  NOW I CAN NEVER GET MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: *BURSTS OUT LAUGHING*  THAT TRICK NEVER GETS OLD!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: GEEZE CHRIS!!!!!! You know that trick always drives me crazy!!!!!

Chris: Even though you’re 17 physically, to me you’re still the adorable and bratty little 6 year old from long ago.  

Lexi: And I wouldn’t have it any other way.  *Giggles*  Just promise me to not stop doing that trick and promise me that we’ll always be together.

Chris: I promise Lil Sis.

Chris and Lexi then hug and embrace each other again before they share a gentle kiss on the lips.

Mike: WOW!!! Those 2 really are close.

Chrissy: Do understand that they’re all they’ve got, so their special bond is what helps them through hardships.

Mike: Still isn’t that kinda like incest?

Chrissy: It’s border line, but at the same time it’s sweet, because it means they’re really close and always there for each other.  It’s better that they have a complex then for them to fighting against each other all the time.  

Aaron: Many siblings would die to have a close relationship like this.

Alex: Exactly!!!! Chris and Lexi are really lucky that they are as close as they are.

Lilly: And I’m much rather see this complex than see them fighting.

Wendy: Me too!!!

Nina: It’s really sweet, and you have no idea how much I wished for a big brother so I can have that kind of sweet relationship.

Big Joe: It’s important to have a good relationship with a sibling, because if you end up in the same situation like they’re in, you’re all you 2 have, so don’t you forget it.

Robert: I second that Joe.  Too many sibling relationships are taken for granted.

Doug: It’s sad but true.

Tom: Those 2 are lucky to still have each let alone have as good of a relationship as they have.

Mike: Okay, I see your point you guys.  By the way Chrissy, when do you plan on confessing your feelings to Chris?

Chrissy: *BLUSHES BRIGHT RED*  MICHAEL!!!!!!!!!! DON’T EVER BRING THAT UP AGAIN OR I’LL SLAP YOU!!!!!!!  BESIDES IT’S REALLY NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!!!!!!

Lilly: YOU STAY OUT OF IT MICHAEL!!!!!!!!!!!

Both Chris and Lexi look at each other and burst out laughing.

Chris: Okay, who has Mike not pissed so far? LOL!!!!

Lexi: He always seems to be good at it. LOL!!!!!!

Chris: So far, he’s pissed you off, he’s pissed me off, pissed off Aaron, and no doubt he’s pissed off Wendy & Nina, and now he’s pissed off both Chrissy, and Lilly. LOL!!!!

Lexi: Yes he has gotten on Wendy and Nina’s nerves. LOL!!!!  But hey, that’s what’s fun about having him around, not a boring moment.

Chris: Got that right. LOL!!!!

Big Joe: By the way, you guys do know what kind of a transformation this is right here?  I mean you should have seen this thing when we pulled out of the river at the bottom of the gorge.  It was literally destroyed.

Robert: It was unrecognizable when we saw it, and we couldn’t believe our eyes that such a beautiful locomotive was at that time a badly destroyed wreck.

Tom: And now we see it, it’s like the accident had never happened.

Doug: But you can tell that’s still not quite the same as the way she was before.

Jack Verdi: You’re right about that because the lettering on the tender no longer is in giant new times roman in the words Ten Mile.  Now it says CALUMET & HELICA MINING CO, and on a gorgeous golden yellow ribbon like scroll in beautiful new times roman lettering in a shiny gloss dark purple too.

Jack Anderson: Also the dome centers used to be fully painted, and now they are beautiful chrome silver with same pin striping that they had before.  The same thing goes with the cylinder jackets.

Big Joe: Also the name Crimson Dragon is above the side cab panels in Apple Chancery lettering.  It may not be as noticeable as the name Katie Belle, but it’s still there.

Chris: But the biggest difference in cosmetics by far are the whistle and bell.  The whistle and bell she had before were beautiful but weren’t really her style.  The whistle was a little raspy and too modern for her, while the bell was a little too high pitched and tiny for her.  But this plain-bell single-chime whistle fits her SO MUCH better, as does the bell.  Heck the bell’s echo even lasts a good 15 plus seconds after a ring.

Jack Anderson: There has gotta be silver content in the bronze.

Tom: There is no doubt in my mind about that.  If it didn’t then it wouldn’t echo as much as it does.

Chrissy: If you don’t mind me asking but what does the silver do in a bell?

Chris: Turn of the century built locomotives like that of Mason Bogies were completely made by hand, and their bells were no exception.  The blacksmiths took pride when it came to melting down, forging, and casting bells out of bronze.   To give them a distinctive sound, they had 15-25 percent of the bells construction compound made from silver.  This bell no doubt  dates back to the turn of the century because it certainly sounds like it has a good number of silver content in the bronze by the way it echoes.  Most bells being made today, don’t echo as much because they don’t have the silver content like this one does.

Chrissy: WOW!!!! THAT IS AMAZING!!!!!!

Chris: I know.  It’s sad that they don’t make bells like these anymore because thieves would steal them to mine the silver out of them to make money.

Chrissy: JEEZE!!!! That really sucks and all for the sake of money too!!!

Chris: Money is the root of all evil after all.

Chrissy: It certainly is and most people in this day and age drive me insane.

Chris: Same here.  Well anyways, the biggest difference of all on this locomotive is that it now has 15 extra tubes, a higher boiler pressure of 200 PSI, and a much larger firebox.  For this reason, she steams and fires a WHOLE lot better, and I’m also getting much better throttle response from her as well.  Just 2 notches is all it takes to get her moving.  Heck, I don’t think safety chains are enough to keep her from rolling. LOL!!!
Also, here are the before, during, and after shots of the engine.

Chris then got out his cell phone, selected the pictures, and showed everyone exactly how badly damaged Katie Belle was before he began working on her.

Everyone: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: I know.  I broke down crying after I saw her, and knew that I just had to restore her back to the way she was before the accident.  And here are the shots I took while her restoration was occurring and how we got it back into its current condition.

Chris then showed everyone the during shots to show just what it took to bring Katie Belle back to the way she was before her accident.

Everyone: WOW!!!!!!! THAT IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Chris: We all put in a lot of time, and hard work into painstakingly restore this locomotive better than the way she was before the accident.  We even managed to salvage the original intact half of the left hand side cylinder.  I just ground off and cut off the jagged edges, and smoothed it flush so that a new second half could be welded into place.  We then inserted a new cylinder sleeve before boring and honing it to the right size, and now it works like a normal steam cylinder.  We also did the same thing with the balloon smoke stack.  As for the twisted and mangle frame; a little heat, finessing, and bending back into shape did the trick.   Now the engine is still using that very same frame; same thing with the bent connecting rods.
Even though the ash-pan was crumpled into the firebox, it really didn’t matter because we ended up replacing the whole firebox with a much larger one anyways.

Big Joe: I am just completely blown away by this.

Everyone: WE ALL ARE!!!!!!

Chrissy: CHRIS!!!! THIS IS SO AMAZING!!!! YOU ARE SO INCREDIBLY TALENTED!!!!  TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR WORK!!!!!!  THIS CRIMSON RED TRAIN IS BEAUTIFUL, AND I THINK IT’S EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE WAY SHE WAS BEFORE THE WRECK!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: CHRIS!!!! I AM SOOOOOOOOOOO SORRY THAT I YELLED AT YOU LIKE THAT!!!!!  I WAS SO ANGRY AND HURT, AND I HAD NO IDEA JUST HOW BADLY DAMAGED THIS TRAIN WAS UNTIL YOU SHOWED ME THOSE PICTURES!!!!!  Now I completely understand, and in all honesty, you never cease to amaze me.

Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chris and kissed him on the lips, while Chrissy walked up to Chris and kissed him on one cheek, and Lilly walked up to him and kissed him on the other.

Chrissy & Lilly: That was a one-time thing, so don’t get the wrong idea.  *Giggles*

Chris: Don’t worry I won’t girls.

Lexi continued to hold Chris and smile sweetly as if she was very proud of him, and happy to have him back with her.

Chris: By the way Joe, how and when did you guys arrive here?

Big Joe: It’s funny you ask that because we all made it to Greenfield Village that night but were surprised that you hadn’t shown up all night.  We figured maybe you went a different route or probably spent more time at the convention center.  We then wait over night, and to our surprise you still don’t show up.  We then leave Greenfield Village and continue our journey, figuring that we’d probably meet up later on, and then we steam through a tunnel and end up here.   And we arrived right smack dab in the middle of the thunderstorm and find your sister and her friends crying while your guy friends were frantically trying to call you with no cellphone reception.  We park 2 of the trains in the basement and shut them down for the night, then us railroad men climb aboard the shay figuring it would be the safest one to use in the rain, and set out on a search, hoping that we could find you and bring you home safely before you’d be backed into a corner.  But by the time found you, it was too late for you and your engine had fallen off the bridge and at the bottom of the gorge.  It’s a good thing Greenfield Village donated the crane and flat car to us, otherwise we couldn’t have saved the engine.

Chris: WOW!!!!   That does explain a lot.

Tom: Greenfield Village already had a steam powered crane, and told us that they had no use for their diesel powered one.  They figured that we could have better use of their diesel powered crane than they did since they never used it, so now it’s ours.

Chris: That is awesome, and we’ll certainly put it to good us.   And now how on earth is a 3rd rail showing up without the Dark Railway?

Robert: Aleasha used some of her magic powers to help us, but it was only for a limited time.  

Jack Verdi: Union Pacific number #4466 must be backed into the basement pronto or those rails will vanish!!!

Chris: Good point!! If the standard gauged trains are gonna be on the ground, it’s best that they’re on the ground in the basement of the palace, protected in doors.

Jack Anderson: We’ve been going around in circles trying to investigate your accident, but could find nothing for the past 7 days.

Doug: You were in the wrong place at the wrong time from the look of things, and so the accident was probably inevitable.

Chris: Yep, rotten luck as always.  Anyways, I’m dying to test this thing out and moving only a few feet is not doing this engine justice.   Not to mention……..

Just then there was a very loud…………

SNAP, CRACK, BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The safety chains holding Katie Belle in place finally gave way, and Katie Belle slowly began to move.

Chris: HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!

Chris then scrambled into her cab, and slammed on her brakes as hard as he could.  

Chris: TORCH LAKE!!!!!!!  The throttle is not even open, and already she wants to take off.  I also had a feeling that those safety chains weren’t enough to hold her.

Chris then climbs out of the cab, and tries jamming on the brake shoes as hard as he could, but it was no use for the brakes were already completely locked in place and could go no further.

Lexi then walked up behind Chris, jumped on his back, wrapped her arms around him, and kissed him.

Chris: Well there’s no escaping you now, is there Lil Sis?

Lexi: No, I am not letting you go this time Big brother. *Giggles*  Also remember when we were kids and how Alexis and I used to fight over which one of us was gonna marry you?

Chris: Now that I think about it, I do actually. LOL!!!!  You also used to ask me which one of you 2 I thought was more beautiful, but every time I said you were both equally beautiful, you girls would get even more angry because it wasn’t the answer you girls were looking for. LOL!!!

Lexi: I miss those days so very much, and I want us to be close again like we used to.   We did everything together and what happened?

Chris: When I turned 15, I got caught up with highschool, girls, cars, school work, attempting to be popular, while you and Alexis went off and did your own thing.

Lexi: And then you graduated high school, and lived abroad in England for several months during college, and then again in Scandinavia, then the accident happened.
We grew distant as years went by and I miss the days that we were so close.  But before we became distant I remember the time you stole my first kiss, and it’s something I will always hold close to my heart.

Chris: I don’t remember that………

Lexi: REALLY CHRIS????!!!! I was 8 years old, it was my first big gymnastics competition, and you promised me that if I did well, you’d kiss me.  I tried so hard that I even placed second in the entire competition, and you kept your promise and kissed me on the lips for the first time.  It was sooo sweet, and it meant a lot to me.  All of the other girls were jealous, and none of them knew you were my brother.  I also remember that it was your first kiss too, making it even more special to me.  But after that, our relationship fell silent and I want it back.

Chris: I wish I could remember that time, but so much happened back then.  I was being bullied in Freshmen year, flunking multiple classes, was having lousy luck with girls, and lost track of what I was doing.  But know that we can be close again, and share new memories together.  We’re gonna be living just minutes away from Disneyland, and note that I applied for a job there.

Lexi: SERIOUSLY???!!!!!!

Chris: Yes.  They had an opening in their parking department, and the Mickey & Friends Tram is part of it, and my plan was to be trained as a driver before eventually ending up on the steam railway that circles The Magic Kingdom.

Lexi: WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME??!!!

Chris: I wanted it to be a surprise for if I got the job, and I didn’t want you to be disappointed if I didn’t.  But I figured if I got a job there, we’d get a lot of discounts on admission, and many other things.  You, Chrissy, Lilly, and your new cheerleading squad could go in as many times as you wanted with the discounts, and we’d share a bunch of good times.  Besides their new rumored diamond celebration is less than 2 years away.  Anyways, I wanted it to be a surprise for you if I got hired.

Lexi: I still wish you would have told me, but I think it would be so cool if you got a job there.  And since I don’t know what I want to do in life after college, I think I’ll join you there.  That way, we’ll still always be together, even though we maybe in different areas, we’d still work for the same company and see each other often.

Chris: I wouldn’t have it any other way Sis.

Lexi then kissed Chris on the cheek and again on the forehead before the 2 wrap their arms around each other in yet another hug when………………
Katie Belle’s low pressure safety valve then pops off.

Chris: Well, I can’t hold this off any longer, so time for me to test her.  And while I’m add it come ride with me in the cab.

Lexi: ARE YOU SERIOUS???!!!!

Chris: Yes, I’m dead serious.  You’ve never been in the cab of a steam locomotive before, and now that the engine has been fully repaired and needs a test run, now’s a good a time as any to give you your first cab ride.   And if you’re worried don’t be, Juan’s a good fireman and he knows what he’s doing.  Not to mention the engine is equipped with a Mapo, which means, if the water level drops to low, or if the high pressure safety valve goes off, or if one of the cylinders gets damaged, a solenoid will trigger the emergency fuel shut off, put out the fire, and shut off the engine.  So don’t worry, I will ensure your safety Lil Sis.

Lexi: OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!

Lexi was so happy and excited that she was at a huge loss for words.  She then ran over to Chrissy, Lilly, and Wendy, and told them what was going on.

Lexi: GUESS WHAT???!!!! BIG BROTHER’S LETTING ME RIDE WITH HIM ON THE ENGINE!!!!!!!

Chrissy: OH MY GOD, THAT’S SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: Let’s all go for a ride and test her out, but Lexi is the one and only cab rider because I don’t want to put anyone in danger.

Lilly: It’s okay Chris, we understand.  

Chrissy: She’s your baby sister and you 2 need more time together.

Lilly: Just promise Chrissy and I that you will also give us the chance to ride with you someday.

Chris: Of course, I wouldn’t have it any other way. ☺

Lilly: YAY!!!!

Lilly then jumped up and wrapped her arms around Chris, and gave him a kiss on the cheek.  Chrissy then walked up to Chris gave him a big hug on the side and kissed him on the other cheek, while Lexi walked up behind him and wrapped her arms around him as well.

Lexi: Okay girls, tonight my big brother is mine and mine only.

Chrissy & Lilly: Fine………..

Lexi: Good!!!

Mike, Aaron, Alex, Wendy, Nina, Chrissy, and Lilly then climb aboard the train and sit in the open air car behind Katie Belle’s tanker while Chris, Juan, and Lexi climb aboard Katie Belle’s cab.

Big Joe: While you kids have fun, we’ll put the 4466 away for the night and relax here.

Butler: There are many good restaurants in the city that you may enjoy since it’s already getting dark.  Please take this list of recommendations.

Chris: Thanks, we’ll do just that. ☺

Big Joe, and Robert climb aboard Union Pacific Number #4466’s cab and back her and her train into the palace’s basement.    The men then set to work on cleaning her up and shutting her down for the night before going about their evening.
Chris then picks up the microphone in Katie Belle’s cab.

Chris: Alrighty everyone, what is the word?

Everyone: ALL ABOARD!!!!!

Chris: HIGH BALL!!!!!!!

Juan rings the bell and opens the firing valve by a couple notches and already gets the roaring fire to cause the firebox to vibrate like Crazy.  Chris then gives 2 blasts on the whistle, releases the brakes, eases her throttle open by 2 notches and Katie Belle gets rolling.
Chris then slowly opened the throttle more and more, and Katie Belle really began to move.  He then notched up her Johnson bar, and she was picking up speed faster than ever before.  The speedometer was already reading 15 miles per hour and was continuing to climb.

Chris & Juan: HOLY SMOKES THIS THING IS A ROCKET!!!!!!!  

Juan: THIS THING IS FIRING A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE!!!!!!

Chris: AND THE THROTTLE IS EXACTLY THE SAME, YET I AM GETTING A MUCH BETTER RESPONSE!!!!!!!!!!

Juan: NOT TO MENTION I AM HARDLY USING ANY FUEL!!!! AND THIS BALL VALVE INJECTOR IS A MASSIVE UPGRADE!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: I KNOW!!!!!  THIS ENGINE HAS NEVER RUN THIS GOOD BEFORE!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle’s speed continued to climb as she steamed off into the night.  Her speed instantly reached a staggering 44 miles per hour as she highballed along the railway line.

Chris: CROSSING AHEAD!!!!!!!!!

Juan: CROSSING AHEAD!!!!!!!!!!

Juan then rang the bell as Chris placed his hand on the whistle chord.

Chris: Lil Sis, would you like to blow the whistle with me?

Lexi: ARE YOU SERIOUS????!!!!!!!

Chris: Dead serious!

Lexi: OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi then placed her hand next to Chris’s on the whistle chord and together both Lexi and Chris tugged on the whistle chord giving the 4 whistle grade crossing with a………………….

WHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOOO, WHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle’s new beautiful whistle pierced through the night sky as Chris and Lexi tugged on the whistle chord.  The whistle sounded exactly like the majestic roar of a powerful dragon.  The whistle’s roar was so loud and so beautiful that it echoed throughout the railroad line and was heard as far as the city.

Chris: HOLY SMOKES!!!!!!!!! THAT IS A GORGEOUS WHISTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!  IT SOUNDS JUST LIKE THAT OF THE WHISTLE ON THE TORCH LAKE LOCOMOTIVE BUT BETTER!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: WOW!!!!!! THAT WAS SO AWESOME!!!!!! I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO THAT!!!!!!

Everyone on board the train were completely blown away by Katie Belle’s new majestic sounding whistle.  It was unlike anything they had ever heard in their lives, and it would be a sound that they would never forget.

Mike: HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!

Lilly: THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

Alex: GOD DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron: THAT BLEW ME AWAY!!!!!!!!

Wendy: I’VE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THAT EVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!

Nina: IT WAS GORGEOUS AND IT SOUNDED REALLY POWERFUL TOO!!!!!!!!

Meanwhile back in the cab, Katie Belle was running and steaming so beautifully that she handled the tight curves like they were nothing.  Her boiler pressure gauge needle stayed at the 200 PSI and didn’t even move a single millimeter in either direction.

Chris: JUAN!!!! DID YOU SUPER GLUE THE PRESSURE GAUGE NEEDLE???!!!!!!!

Juan: I WAS GONNA ASK YOU THE SAME THING!!!!!!!!!!  THE NEEDLE HASN’T BUDGED A SINGLE MILLIMETER IN EITHER DIRECTION!!!!!!!!!!  AND I’M NOT USING A LOT OF FUEL EITHER!!!!!!!!!!  THE ATOMIZER VALVE ISN’T EVEN A QUARTER OPEN, I DON’T EVEN HAVE TO TOUCH THE BLOWER MUCH, AND I ALREADY HAVE A ROARING FIRE THAT IS POWERFUL ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE FIREBOX TO VIBRATE AND PUR!!!!!!!!

Chris: THINK THAT’S CRAZY, THE THROTTLE IS ONLY OPEN BY 5 NOTCHES!!!! JUST 5!!!!!!!!!!  10 NOTCHES IS WIDE OPEN, SO I ONLY HAVE THE THROTTLE OPEN HALF WAY AND WE’RE ALREADY AT 44 MILES PER HOUR!!!!!!!!

Juan: THAT IS AMAZING!!!!!!!

Chris: TELL ME ABOUT IT, THIS ENGINE HAS NEVER OPERATED THIS GOOD IN ITS LIFE!!!!!

Juan: YOU’VE TAKEN A GOOD ENGINE AND MADE IT NUCLEAR!!!!!!

Chris: AND TO THINK SHE WAS JUST A BROKEN DOWN WRECK THAT WAS ALMOST COMPLETELY DESTROYED 7 DAYS AGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi was completely blown away and in a lot of shock and awe.  She was both glad to spend more time with her brother, ride in the cab of a steam engine, and see that both her brother and his best friend Juan were having a blast.  Lexi had multiple tears of joy rolling down her face as she beamed during her ride in Katie Belles cab.  She then giggled and smiled brightly as she peaked out of Katie Belle’s cab and looked up at the stars in the beautiful night sky.  It was like Lexi was once again a happy a curious little 6 year old girl.

Juan: ALRIGHT, TIME TO SAND OUT THE TUBES!!!!

Chris: GOT IT!!!

Juan then opened up the tool box, scooped up the can of sand, opened up the firebox door, and poured the can of sand into the firebox.  The sand being sucked up through the heat tubes cleans the soot from the tubes, and allowing the tubes to conduct heat better.
As sand was being sucked up through the heat tubes, golden smoke started pouring out of Katie Belle’s stack.

Chris: HOLY SMOKES!!!!!!!

Juan: IS THAT NORMAL???!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: WHATEVER IT IS, IT’S BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!

Even after the tubes were sanded out, Katie Belle still continued to puff gold smoke out of her smoke stack.  Not only that, but plants, trees, flowers, and the lake water that neighbored the track lit up, and added colorful glows to the night sky.  The Magical Railway was once again coming to life.

Chris: WHAT IS THIS LIGHT MAGIC???!!!!!!

Lexi: IT’S JUST SO PRETTY, AND SO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

As Katie Belle continued steaming down the railway line, more golden smoke kept puffing out of Katie Belle’s stack, and more of the plants, trees, and lake water lit up.
Juan then rang the bell as Chris and Lexi tugged on the whistle chord and blew Katie Belle’s beautiful new majestic whistle.
As Katie Belle came nearer and nearer to the city, everyone in the city’s eyes just widened, jaws dropped, and everyone literally froze, for it was a sound they had not heard in a long time.  

Local: IT COULDN’T BE COULD IT??!!!!

Local: IT SOUNDS JUST LIKE………

Just then Katie Belle’s bell and whistle went off again.

Local: IT SOUNDS LIKE THE CRIMSON DRAGON!!!!!!!!

Local: IT MUST BE IT!!!!!!!

Local: THE CRIMSON DRAGON IS BACK!!!!!!!

Everyone in the city: THE CRIMSON DRAGON HAS RETURNED!!!!!!!

Katie Belle then steamed into a tunnel, and behind a waterfall before steaming out onto a beautiful trestle long the side of a cliff.  

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!!! THIS IS SO AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Lexi then walked up behind Chris, wrapped her arms around him, and gave him a kiss on the cheek.

Lexi: Chris, I am never letting you go.  You’re my big brother, and mine only.

Chris: Love you too Lil Sis.

Katie Belle then steamed into a shopping district in the downtown area.  As Chris slowed Katie Belle and her train down, everyone came running to see her and were in complete shock and awe for in their eyes, the Crimson Dragon had returned to her rightful home, and every her bell range and whistle blew, everyone was sure of it being the Crimson Dragon.
Chris then spots a beautiful high-end restaurant right in the shopping district close to the train tracks with a valet parking attendant waiting outside.

Chris: This is the right place.

Juan: It looks good Bro.

Lexi: Anywhere you go, I’ll go.

Chris then slowly closed Katie Belle’s throttle and slowly applied her brakes.  Juan then rang the bell as Chris gave Katie Belle one long followed by one short blast on the whistle before bringing Katie Belle to a full and complete stop.
Chris then gave one blast on the, climbed out of the cab and threw safety chains under the wheels as Lexi followed him out of the cab.
Chris then got the digital temperature reader, walked over to the rear left drive axle, pointed the temperature rear at the drive wheel, and was astounded by the result.

Chris: ONLY 78 DEGREES!!!!!!  HAAAAA-HAAAAAA!!!!!!!!  THE AXLE BEARING IS NO LONGER BURNING UP!!!!!

Chris then walked around the entire locomotive and none of the other axle bearings were running hot either.

Chris: PROBLEM FIXED!!!!

Juan: THAT IS GREAT BRO!!!!  AND BEST OF ALL!!!!!!!

Chris & Juan: WE DON’T NEED TO WAIST ANY MORE WATER TO COOL THE BEARINGS DOWN!!!!

Lexi: THAT IS GREAT GUYS!!!!!

Juan then shut off the firing valve and put out her fire before closing all the windows doors, and curtains, and climbing out of the cab.
Everyone else then climbed off the train and walked up to the engine.  
Everyone outside the restaurant also walked up to Katie Belle and they couldn’t believe their eyes.  

Valet Parking Attendant: AT LONG LAST THE CRIMSON DRAGON HAS FINALLY RETURNED HOME!!!!!!!  ARE YOU HER NEW OWNER???!!!!

Chris: Yes I am, but I’m not her only owner.  My little sister Lexi, my best friends Juan, Chrissy, and Lilly, along with my other good friends Mike, Aaron, Alex, Nina, and Wendy are also her owners.  

Juan: That’s right!!!

Lexi: That we are!!!

Valet Parking Attendant: If that’s the case, I’ll happily look after her for you.

Chris: Thank you very much Sir.  

Chris and his friends then enter the restaurant and are seated at a table in the beautiful dinning room located in the wine cellar.
Lexi and Chrissy sit on both sides of Chris, while Alex sat on the other side of Lexi, and Lilly sat right next to Juan.  
Mike, Aaron, Wendy, and Nina all knew that something was up.

Mike: Sibling complex much?

Wendy: Chrissy really should fess up her feelings to Chris and fast.

Nina: Lilly should do the same thing with Juan.

Aaron: I feel sorry for Chris.

Mike: Me too man.  The poor guy now can’t have any time to himself.

Both Lexi and Chrissy were laughing and giggling as they were mingling with Chris, but unfortunately Chris, couldn’t even have a chance to read the cocktail menu because of this.

Chris: Can’t a guy get a few seconds to order a cocktail??!!!!  I mean, I just got the tar beat out of me from falling 71 feet down a gorge, undergoing surgery, and working 7 days straight.  At the very least, I can get a few seconds to order………

Chrissy & Lexi: NAAAAAA-AAAAAAH, NAAAAAAAAA-AAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!  We’re not letting you go Chris!!!!!!! Not now, not ever!!!!!

Chris: Ugh-Oh Boy!!!!!

Just then an old man came walking over the table.  He looked at Chris in a strange way?

Old Man: Hello Sir.  Forgive me for disturbing you but are you perhaps the owner of the Crimson Dragon parked outside?

Chris: Yes.  Well not just me, we’re all of her owners.  She doesn’t belong to just me, she belongs to all of us and is our engine, so if you’re talking to the rightful owners, you’re talking to all of us.  So please bring a chair over and dine with us.

Old Man: Thank you, don’t mind if I do.

The old man then grabbed a chair, placed it at the far head of the table and sat down with the group.

Old Man: My name is Robert Turner, but you can call me Bob.

Chris: Nice to meet you, my name is Christian Mandez and this right here is my little sister Lexi Mandez, and here is my best friend Chrissy Granger and her little sister Lilly Granger.  That is my other best friend Juan Vail, along with my good friend Mike Anatol, Wendy Marvell, Nina Yamada, and also Alexander and his brother Aaron.  And together we are the proud owners of the Crimson Dragon.

Bob: It’s a pleasure to meet all of you.

Lexi: It’s really nice to meet you too Sir.

Bob: Thank you Ms.  Now everyone, I have something very important to talk to you about, and it’s about the Crimson Dragon.  You may want to order up now because this will take a while.

Chapter 14

The Story Of The Crimson Dragon

Bob: The story of the Crimson Dragon goes that with the Dark Railway wreaking havoc over here.  Suddenly a mysterious Mason Bogie shows up and puts the Dark Railway at bay, to sum it all up.

Chris: That’s pretty much what Aleasha told us, but she also told us that our engine is the descendant of the original Crimson Dragon locomotive that vanished many years ago.

Bob: And that’s where I come in.  Ya see, I am also from your world and am very familiar with the Mason Bogie locomotives.  I have done extensive research and over the years I have discovered that the Crimson Dragon isn’t just one locomotive but 2.  

Chris: Okay.  Many people are convinced our locomotive is the real deal, when in fact she’s only the reincarnation.  She may have the same paintwork as the original, but if she was the original, she would be moving on her own accord.

Bob: Your Crimson Dragon maybe a reincarnation but is also a genuine artifact.  Meaning she is no fake.  She is the real deal.  
Long ago, the Mason Machine Works built multiple steam locomotives, but their specialty locomotives, were the flexible bogie engines.  For many years it was believed that all were cut up for scrap except for one engine.

Chris: And that one engine is the Calumet & Helica Mining Company Number #3, which has been affectionately named the Torch Lake.   She’s an 0-6-4RT engine that was built in 1872, and is now the oldest operating steam locomotive to run on a daily time schedule.

Bob: But what most people don’t know is, the Torch Lake had 2 narrow gauge daughter locomotives that both survived into the 1950s.
The Denver South Park & Pacific Railroad needed locomotives to traverse some of their steep mountain areas where most of their 4-6-0s and 2-8-0s couldn’t go due to their long rigid frames.  A custom order was made in 1893 and in 1894, what was supposed to be the last Mason Machine Works steam locomotive to be built, was constructed and delivered.  Her name was the San Juan number #3, with the exact same number as her mother the Torch Lake, but she was a narrow gauge 2-6-6RT rather than a standard gauge 0-6-4RT.  
However one engine was not enough for the high demand of moving passengers and freight through the tight turns of the steep mountains, and an off day in the week was needed for the shop to make repairs on the locomotive.  The DSP&P were not best pleased with losing money one day in the week to take their one and only Mason Bogie engine out of service for repairs, so in 1901 they ordered a second engine from the Mason Machine Works.  In 1902 the second Mason Bogie engine was constructed and delivered to the Railroad, and like her older sister, she was a narrow gauge 2-6-6RT, but she carried the name Ten Mile and bared the number 6.  Like their mother, these 2 little engines had identical sounding plain-bell single-chime whistles with sweet sounding bronze bells with silver content.  And anytime these 2 little engines would blow their whistles and ring their bells, everyone would know when the Mason Bogie sisters were running.  Like at the Calumet & Helica Mining Company; every the Torch Lake’s whistle was blown and bell was rung, everyone would know it was her who was running.

Chris: It’s interesting you say this, because Juan and I got ahold of the bell off the Torch Lake locomotive for a few hours, and we tried to make a duplicate of it by making the new bell the same size and weight.  We got ourselves a beautiful sounding bell, but unfortunately it was way too high pitched, and it sounded too tinny.  Then again we used brass to make the bell, rather than bronze, and we didn’t know to pour silver content into the bell’s mold.
When we first arrived in this world, no one came running up to our engine to see her, but when we put the new whistle and bell on her, everyone came running up to see her.

Bob: Because they know that the Crimson Dragon is making herself known, and I’ll get to that in a moment.
Together, these 2 sister Mason Bogies worked side by side on the Denver South Park & Pacific Railroad.
Even when the railroad went belly up in 1912 and got bought by the Colorado & Southern, the 2 sister engines still ran together side by side.   But when the Great Depression hit, everything changed.
The 2 engines were taken out of service and put into long-term storage.  The plan was to bring them out and put them back to work when the Railroad got going again, but that never really happened.
When a boiler inspector took a look at the San Juan, everything checked out alright, and she was put back in service, but when he saw the Ten Mile, extensive repairs were needed.  Instead of making the extensive repairs to Ten Mile’s boiler, the Colorado & Southern Railroad then locked her away in the shed.  
Unfortunately during their times stored in the shed, their whistles and bells were removed and had been misplaced.  When it came time to reinstall San Juan’s whistle and bell, they couldn’t be found.  So they found a spare brass bell, and 3 chime whistle, placed them on the San Juan, and for her remaining time in the normal world she continued to wear her replacement whistle and bell.
The San Juan continued running on the Colorado & Southern until steam was phased out in the mid 1940s.  At which time the engine was to be donated to a Museum rather than scrapped given its historic Value.  The Forney Transportation Museum in Denver, were given the engine, and she remained on Display in the museum from 1944 to 1952.  At which time an individual decided to take the San Juan, along with 5 Colorado & Southern Jackson Sharp coaches, and restore them.  He set to work on restoring the locomotive and cars to working order.  He also had 2 open air cars custom built for the locomotive.   He gave the locomotive and cars a brand new coat of paint, and it was the beautiful crimson red colors with purple pin-striping along with a lot of gold brass and silver chrome.  He also painted on the number 22 on the locomotive, and her name San Juan was painted in large letters on the sides of her tender.
However this restoration victory was only short lived, for a Magical Portal opened up and the San Juan locomotive along with her train and the person who restored her, vanished into the portal, and wound up here.  But before he wound up here, 2 mysterious treasure boxes were placed in the baggage car of the San Juan’s train.

Chris: So that confirms the origin of the original Crimson Dragon locomotive.

Bob: Yes it does, but there is more to the story.  Like you the locomotive’s owner of the San Juan came here wondering what the heck he was doing here.  Also every time he blew the whistle and rang the bell, no one came up to see him or the locomotive.  

Chris: I should also tell you why my engine had a different sounding whistle and bell in the first place.  When I found the engine in a local scrap yard, the original whistle and bell were stolen, so Juan and I made our own.   Shortly after we arrived here, we went searching for the Dark Railway and found nothing, but on a dark and stormy night, I then heard the sounds of demonic whistles, and thought I could defeat the Dark Railway myself.  I took Katie Belle alone with no train, and went by myself so they wouldn’t take part in the mission.  Unfortunately I ended up in their trap when Katie Belle’s fire went out because her Mapo activated, and she then stalled in the dead center of the Ashtabula Horror Bridge after sheering off her rear left driving wheel off its axle.  Then this guy named Cameron Hurley comes climbing out of the cab of engine 40 and begins taunting and mocking me and our engine before the bridge gives way and Katie Belle and I plummet 71 feet into the gorge.
When we hit the bottom, Katie Belle hit the water and river bed right-side up, but the impact was so devastating that her frame was twisted, her number 1 cylinder was broken in half, the cab was mostly destroyed, her connecting rods were bent like spaghetti noodles, the axles on her pony and tender trucks sheer off, her cow catcher is destroyed, her headlamp goes missing, her smoke stack is broken, her ash-pan was crumpled into her firebox, and her whistle and bell get knocked off.  I then get thrown from the cab on impact, and wind up with punctured lungs, shattered ribs, testicle torsion, a fractured collar bone, 2nd and 3rd degree burns from ruptured pipes, and my eyelashes stabbing my eyes after they were pointing inwards.

Bob: JESUS!!!!  That must have been Hell!!!!

Chris: It was.  I was in agony, but I managed to make my way back into Katie Belle’s cab thinking that I was gonna die from my injuries and pass out.  Our friends Big Joe, Robert, Jack Verdi, Jack Anderson, Tom, and Doug come by with their shay geared steam logging engine number #1925 and diesel powered crane, and I get medically evacuated into the caboose while Katie Belle gets lifted onto a flat car.  
I then under go hours of surgery while Katie Belle is placed in the safety of the basement in the palace where we are staying in.  I remain in a coma for 2 days, and when I wake up I go straight to working on restoring Katie Belle, and bringing her back to life with the help of the palace mechanics, carpenters, machinests, and blacksmiths.  And the restoration we did will take a person with a lot of money multiple months to complete, while it would take a tourist railroad many years, and a non-profit organization even decades to complete, but the guys and I got it done in 7 short days because we were working non-stop around the clock.

Lexi: He was very dedicated into fixing her, but he had no idea how much it made me, his baby sister, along with his best friends Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy, worry.  We were all worried to death and had the shit scared out of us.  Please excuse my language, but if you don’t know, Chris and I just lost our parents in a plane crash, and lost our sister in a car accident.  To top it off, I almost lost Chris many years ago in an avalanche while he was studying abroad in Scandinavia.  So as a little sister, it was heartbreaking for me, since I just lost my parents, I just lost my big sister, and I almost lost my big brother before, and almost lose him again, it’s agonizing.  And once after he wakes up, he doesn’t bother to say hi to me, and everyone else to tell us he’s okay, he goes straight to work on the engine, and literally overworks himself to death.  It hurts, and it’s something I don’t ever want to experience again.  For that Chris isn’t leaving my side for a single second as long as I live.

Chris: Well, that is my fault, I should have informed her what I was up to, and should have told her that I was okay and was gonna work on restoring the engine, but I didn’t, I was a selfish idiot, but now to get back on the subject, here are pictures of Katie Belle after the accident.

Chris then got out his cell phone and showed Bob the before, during, and after restoration pictures, and Bob smiled.

Chris: As for how we got ahold of the current whistle and bell, the palace butler came walking down to the basement with a massive treasure chest, and inside the treasure chest was the bell and whistle along with a note, and the note stated that it belonged to the original Crimson Dragon engine.

Bob: That is remarkable, but no surprise because something very similar happened to the original Crimson Dragon.

Chris: WHAT??!!!!

Bob: Yes.  The owner of the original Crimson Dragon did the exact thing.  Well, he didn’t fall off a bridge, but he was backed into a corner.  It was a dark and stormy night, and during the time, the original owner was living in a local Inn while the San Juan was living in a barn.  That night he heard the sounds of the diabolical steam whistles, and was curious on what they were.  Everyone told him to stay away, and not to go anywhere near those whistle sounds, but curiosity got the best of him.  He detached the San Juan from her train, and took off with her into the night.   He and San Juan then wound up being surrounded by the Dark Railway locomotives and they chased him into a tunnel.  At which time, the San Juan run out of fuel, and also she sheered her crank pin on her rear right drive axle and stalled.  Mike Hurley, who was the same age as the San Juan’s owner, also climbed out of number #93’s cab, and both taunted and mocked the owner, and the San Juan locomotive before the tunnel collapsed.  The young man and the San Juan were crushed to death.  Later on that night, minors digging for gold uncovered the young man and the locomotive, and they called for help.  A geared Climax locomotive along with a crane, picked up the damaged locomotive, while the young man was medically evacuated in the caboose.  
Aleasha’s mother, Felicia, ordered that the young man and his locomotive take up shelter at the Royal Palace where he would receive the finest medical treatment available.  Multiple doctors were called in to operate on him, and after 2 days of being in a Coma, he woke up in extreme pain, but that wasn’t enough to stop him from doing repairs on the damaged locomotive.  Many of the railways donated their various machines, and materials so that the damaged locomotive could be restored.  Many of the palace’s finest mechanics, machinests, carpenters, and blacksmiths worked round the clock for 7 days straight until finally the San Juan was fully restored back to working order.

Everyone’s jaws then dropped after hearing Bob’s story of the original Crimson Dragon’s accident.

Chris: HOLY SMOKES!!!!!  This is Deja Vou all over again!!!  And how I managed to restore Katie Belle was because my organization known as The Mandez Machine Works, had a lot of machines onboard our standard gauge trains.  We had them unloaded and put to work at once, so that Katie Belle could be fully restored.

Bob: Well, the San Juan was badly damaged in almost the same way.  Her cab was crushed, the boiler jacket was dented, the tender tank was dented, the stack was broken in half, the right hand side cylinder was broken in half, her firebox was crumpled at the bottom, the frame was dented, and both the bell and whistle were knocked off.

Chris: That’s almost identical to the damage on Katie Belle.

Bob: And you’ll love this too.  The owner was nearing completion, and he had no whistle and bell for the locomotive.  Then suddenly one of the butlers took one of the large treasure boxes out of the baggage car off San Juan’s train and presented it to him.  The Young man then opened the boxm and was flabbergasted; for what was in the box, were the missing pieces he need.

Bob & Chris: A bell and whistle!!!!

Bob: The young man then placed the new whistle and bell onto the locomotive, and lit a fire in the firebox.  It wasn’t long after until the San Juan was restored, and alive again.  The young man then rang the bell and blew the whistle, and was completely blown away by the sheer beauty, for it was the most beautiful and majestic sounding bell and whistle he had ever heard.  

Chris: And let me guess, the whistle sounded like the roar of a majestic dragon?

Bob: Yes, it did.  And every time the San Juan’s whistle was blown and bell was rung, everyone knew who it was, and they all came to see her.  Soon after, on her first run after her restoration, the young man sanded the tubes on her, and golden smoke came pouring out her stack, and everywhere she went, the plant life, trees, lake water, and everything around San Juan and her train would glow like an electric light parade.  It was the most beautiful site ever known on our railway, and the San Juan became a special and treasured locomotive.
The Dark Railway got furious after hearing about San Juan’s revival for they thought they destroyed her, but had failed to do so.  
The young man then got angry for what the Dark Railway had done to him and his beloved San Juan, that he hatched a plan to get revenge.  
On another dark and stormy night, the young man, and everyone in the city got together and hatched a plan.  The San Juan was gonna show the Dark Railway that she was not a locomotive that could easily be destroyed, and show the Dark Railway she did.
The Dark Railway attempted to back her into a corner again, but it was easier said than done when the San Juan had her full train in tow, along with multiple friends onboard for help.  To top it off, the pure and beautiful sounds of the whistle and bell made the Dark Railway’s job even more difficult.  
The more the Dark Railway would try to fight and play their tricks, the more San Juan blew her whistle and rang her bell, and the sounds weakened the powers of the Dark Railway to the point that they became terrified of her.   The San Juan then chased after the Dark Railway locomotives like she was an angry dragon that had been woken up out of a cave, and there was no stopping her.  
The golden smoke along with everything lighting up, only made the Dark Railway more terrified of her.  The last straw was when she gained the ability to fly in the air like that of a dragon.  This shook the Dark Railway to the point that they fled never to return again.
Because of San Juan’s beautiful Crimson Red colors, the beautiful and majestic tones of her whistle and bell, the golden smoke she puffed out of her stack along with the plant life lighting up everywhere she went, as well as the way she charged at the Dark Railway and backed them into a corner, and her ability to fly; the San Juan was given the honorable name of the Crimson Dragon.

Chris: HOLY SMOKES!!!!!!

Bob: Because of the Crimson Dragon and her master staying around for 36 years, with her blowing her whistle, ringing her bell, blowing her golden smoke, and lighting up everything, the Dark Railway wouldn’t dare show themselves in fear of what would happen to them if they did.  Then one day, the Crimson Dragon went into hibernation, and her master retired due to old age.
Everyone was greatly saddened by the Crimson Dragon’s disappearance, but even with her gone, the Dark Railway still stayed away for another 25 years due to the Crimson Dragon’s Magical aura being so powerful.
But over time, with her hibernation going on, the Crimson Dragon’s aura has grown weaker and weaker, and with that, the Dark Railway sees that their threat is gone, and is wreaking havoc once again.  
But what no one knows is, of the Crimson Dragon’s other half, the San Juan’s younger sister, the Ten Mile.

Chris: And you’re telling me, Katie Belle is the Crimson Dragon’s other half, and is the Ten Mile?

Bob: Yes, that is exactly who she is, but to straighten out the story, while the San Juan was playing her role as the Legendary Crimson Dragon, her younger sister, Ten Mile remained stored in the shed for another several decades.  
The Colorado & Southern Railway then stored 5 Jackson Sharp coaches they didn’t want anymore in the same barn, and from 1935 onwards, the Ten Mile and C&O coaches remained in storage.  
In 1949, most of the rail was being torn up, and that included the rails that were leading the shed that the Ten Mile was in.  The Colorado & Southern then wanted to scrap the Ten Mile and the coaches stored with her, but given that all the rails were torn up, there was no way they could get her to the scrap yard.  It would have been too much money for them to lay temporary tracks to take her away, so the C&O upped and abandoned her along with the old C&O coaches.
In 1988, a housing development started breaking ground, and the shed was in the way.  The construction company went to knock down the shed when they found the Ten Mile and the C&O coaches stored in there.  The men were completely blown away by what they found, and they called up the Forney Transportation Museum.  
The Forney Transportation Museum figured that since they lost their first Mason Bogie engine, the second one would be perfect to fit the bill.
But that didn’t last long.  She wound up stored a warehouse in Denver with the plans of being cosmetically restored in the works, however, the plans didn’t go through, and the train was sold to a private collector who decided to buy it for his own use.  
In 1995, the train’s new owner saw how expensive it was to restore the locomotive and cars, and didn’t want anything to do with it anymore.  He then had the train sent off to a scrap yard to be cut up.
When I heard that my heart sank because San Juan’s sister was gone.  Then I saw you on the engine steaming in, and when I saw it I gasped, because I knew that your engine was not the San Juan.   The San Juan doesn’t have the chrome silver dome centers, cylinder jackets, or the beautiful golden yellow ribbon banners with lettering on the sides of the tender.  Also the name Katie Belle is certainly not on the San Juan.  The biggest difference of all is, the San Juan is still coal fired where as it seems that you have converted your engine to being fuel by bio-diesel.  So that means, your engine is the San Juan’s long lost sister, the Ten Mile, and the second half of the Crimson Dragon.  And your bell and whistle did not come off the San Juan, they are rightfully her original bell and whistle for the San Juan still has hers.  The note was only put in the box as an assumption, when in fact there were 2 treasure boxes and the San Juan still has her original bell and whistle.  And now the Ten Mile rightfully has her original bell and whistle as well.

Chris: That explains a lot.  The scrap yard I bought her from had her for goodness knows how long, and the owner said it was too much money to cut her and the train up for scrap, so I gave him a dollar for the entire train, and with that I became the new owner.
Then I set to work on restoring her back to service, and literally build a new locomotive from scratch given that most of the parts are not original.  However, the frame, domes, and sides of the tender bogie, are still original.  The connecting rods however were forged from Volvo.  Everything else is practically brand new.  Same thing with the Jackson Sharp coaches, just the frames, and sides of the bogies are original, everything else is brand new.  The open air cars were built from the Cloke Locomotive Works.
As for the colors, I love the color red, but I felt as if I was guided to paint Katie Belle the way she is now, those designs and colors were my idea, but something was guiding me to make them my idea.  As for before the bridge accident, her tender originally had the name Ten Mile written on the sides, but to start a new beginning for her, I wanted Katie Belle to have a new lease on life, and that included new lettering.   This style I got off the Fred Gurley locomotive on the Disneyland Railroad, and as for the road name, I want to honor the Torch Lake locomotive’s road name, and put it on Katie Belle’s tender.  Now that I know that this engine is Torch Lake’s daughter, I feel it’s an even better tribute.
As for the chrome silver dome centers with painted pin striping; I also got that idea from the Fred Gurley and Ward Kimball locomotives on the Disneyland Railroad.  Same thing goes with the Cylinder jackets.

Bob: I think what you have done is incredibly remarkable.  You have done a marvelous job restoring the Crimson Dragon’s other half, and it’s just a matter of time before both the San Juan and Ten Mile are reunited once again.

Chris: It’s interesting you say all of this because when Juan sanded out the tubes on Katie Belle, she began puffing golden smoke out of her stack, and everywhere she went, the plant life, trees, and lake water all lit up like Disneyland’s Light Magic Parade.

Bob: Then that means the Crimson Dragon’s other half is about to reawaken.  

Chris: WOW!!!! Talk about twin telepathy or sibling telepathy; both engines arrive here at random, with their owners not knowing what the heck is going on.  They then set off on their own detached from their trains on their own, and fall into the Dark Railway’s trap.  One engine gets crushed in a tunnel collapse, the other one falls off a bridge, and both engines are badly damaged to a point of possibly never running again.  Both masters are mortally injured and arrive at the exact same palace, undergo emergency surgery over night, and wake up from their comas 2 days later.   They then set to work on the damaged locomotives in the exact same basement of the exact same palace, and get the work done in the exact same timeline.  Also butlers come walking up with treasure boxes holding their original bells and whistles.  Then they awaken with the sounds of their beautiful bells and whistles, followed by puffing out golden smoke after getting their tubes sanded out for the first time since their restoration, and then they light up the night sky.

Bob: You’d be surprised on how history repeats itself but it looks like we are in for a bright future.  And this time, the Dark Railway won’t be getting away, especially not when there are 2 Crimson Dragons. LOL.  
Anyways, I must be on my way now, my wife and her friends need me back at their table.  It was nice meeting all of you, and I know we will meet again real soon.

Chris: It was great meeting you too Bob, and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Bob: The second half of the Crimson Dragon is in the hands of fine individuals and I couldn’t be happier.  You all enjoy your meal, and have a good night.

Chris: You too Bob.

Bob then walks back to his table and rejoins his group, while Chris and his friends wait for their food to enjoy a nice dinner.  But little did they know on how soon that their half of the Crimson Dragon would awaken.

Chapter 15

KIDNAPPED

After a wonderful night out Katie Belle and her train steamed back to the Palace. Katie Belle was then backed into the basement and had her fire dropped for the night.

Chris: Alright Juan, drop the fire.

Juan: I’m on it.

Juan then closed his firing valve, and put out his fire before he and Chris set to work on closing up all valves and bottling up Katie Belle for the night. Lexi stayed by Chris’s side during the entire duration of Katie Belle’s shut down, as did Chrissy and Lilly while everyone retired to their rooms fire the night.

Chris: Well, Katie Belle performed MUCH better than expected.

Juan: Yeah, she has never fired so good since we first had her. And that bell is……….MY GOD!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: And I will never forget that cab ride as long as I live. I’ll always treasure it.

Chris: Looks we all can’t stop drooling over our engine. LOL!!!!

Chris and Juan then set to work on refueling and topping off the water level on Katie Belle.

Juan: What’s also amazing is that we barely used any fuel and water.

Chris: Those air-rated low-flow water injectors really shine now that we no longer have an axle bearing overheating.

Juan: And for that, we didn’t even us a single drop of water out of the auxiliary water tanker. NOT ONE DROP!!!

Chris: I know, and these bronze bearings make all the difference.

Juan: Yeah, she’s definitely not the same engine we had before.

Chris: No she’s not and its safe to say that we finally got the steam locomotive we have always dreamed of having.

Juan: And who would know that an accident would be such a huge game changer?

Chris: Yeah, normally after a wreck, even with good to amazing restoration work, a steam locomotive will never be the same, and will change for the worse. But this worked the other way around.

Lexi: But still promise me never to get involved in an accident ever again. I can’t bare the thought of having my heart broken and losing you again.

Chris: I promise Lil Sis. I will keep you informed on what I am doing, where I am going, and to do what I can to stay out of harm’s way.

Lexi: Good. I also promise to try to be more patient, not to overreact when something happens, not to get angry right off the bat the way Alexis did, and most importantly, to always be there for you as your own personal cheerleader, your best friend, but most importantly as your little sister and as family. In sickness & in health, for better or for worse, for rich or poor, all the days of our lives, we’ll always be there for each other. Now get down from there and lets pinky swear!!!

Chris then climbed down Katie Belle’s tender ladder, and off of her. Though it still bothered Lexi to see Chris using the tender ladder.

Lexi: It still bothers me to see you using the ladder though.

Chris: Yeah, Katie Belle originally didn’t have that ladder when I bought it months ago. I added that because the Disneyland Railroad 2-4-4RT Forney engines, Fred Gurley and Ward Kimball have them, and they’re used all the time to make refueling and watering much easier. Honestly, I don’t know why the engine wasn’t originally built with it, because it comes in really handy.

Lexi: Still I don’t like it!!! I know you survived a 71 foot fall off a bridge, but know that even a 5 foot fall is dangerous, and you know I can’t have my heart broken again. I know I may not like it, so I can’t stop you from using the ladder, but please be very careful when you use it.

Chris: I promise Lil Sis.

Lexi: Good now lets pinky swear.

Chris and Lexi then hook up their pinkies before making their promise.

Chris & Lexi: Cross my heart, hope to die, eat 1000 needles if I lie; Pinky promise!!!

Chris: Or get caught in a locomotive boiler explosion if I lie. LOL

Lexi: NOT FUNNY CHRIS!!!! It may work for Cam May Von Ludwig, but I don’t find it funny.

Chris: Sorry.

Lexi: Don’t worry about it. What’s important is that you’re okay, we have each other, we love each other, and we’ll always be there for each other.

Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chris, and kissed him on the cheek, then again on the forehead, and again on the lips, and Chris kissed her back.
Chris then sat down by Katie Belle’s number #2 cylinder, and Lexi sat in his lap, and continued to hug and kiss him. Chris then held her and stroked her as Lexi laid her head by his heart and slowly drifted off to sleep. Chrissy then sat down next to Chris.

Chrissy: You really are a sweetheart Chris; Lexi is so lucky to have you as your big brother.

Chris: And I am blessed to have her as my little sister. It’s not easy trying to be a big brother, a mom, a dad, a best friend, and in some cases a boy friend all in one to her, but it’s the least I can do for this poor girl. She lost both of her parents, her sister, and her boyfriend in the blink of an eye, and she almost lost me too, and twice at that. I can’t even bare to think of what would have happened if I would have died on her.

Chrissy: Neither can I because you’ve become my best friend, and you’re very special to me, and you’ve become really special to Lilly too. When I heard about the accident, I was very devastated. I was not only scared for Lexi, but I just couldn’t bare the thought of losing you either. Even though you and I haven’t known each other long, you’ve become my best friend, and you’re really special to me, like family. It’s the same for Lilly too. She’s always wanted a brother, but never had one, and you help fill that void for her.

Lilly: Very true. I love you like you were my brother, and losing you would have been…………….I’d honestly rather not go there.

Chrissy: Lilly and I couldn’t stop crying after we heard about your accident. We were really scared, and we didn’t think you’d make it. It was especially hard on Lexi, but I’m sure you already know that.

Chris: To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to make it either. When the Dark Railway locomotives backed me and Katie Belle onto the bridge and the moment Katie Belle stalled with no fire, and a broken axle, I was like “CRAP!!! I’m in trouble!” And in trouble, I was. When I hit the bottom of the gorge, I thought I was dead, but I was amazed that I was still alive. However, I didn’t think I’d be alive for much longer, for once after I climbed back into Katie Belle’s cab, I almost blacked out, but my last 2 words were “Lexi, I’m sorry.” I felt that I was letting her down by getting my but kicked and dying on her like that. I felt without me, who will be there to take care of her? I’ve been taking care of her since she was a little thing, heck she still is a little thing. Even though we’ve had our moments, I love her so much, I couldn’t bare the thought of leaving her to fend for herself. She’s still just a baby and is a very needy girl. I know that I have to not only be a brother to her, but also a mom, a dad, and even a boyfriend to her for a certain degree. I know we have a weird and complex relationship, but this poor girl is going through a tough time. She’s lost too much in her life to endure another loss.

Chrissy: That was the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard Chris. You really care so much for her, and will go to great lengths for her. Lexi has in some ways taken you for granted but……

Chris: But during her times when she was growing up, I wasn’t there for her when she really needed me…….. I wasn’t there for her when she entered high school, I wasn’t there for her when she had her first period, I wasn’t there for her when she first got her heart broken, I wasn’t there for her when her cheerleading squad made nationals, I wasn’t there for her when her gymnastics team hit Nationals, I wasn’t there to help her when she flunked her classes, I wasn’t there for her to celebrate the time she passed the Ohio High School Exam, I wasn’t there for her when she became cheer captain, and I wasn’t there for her when she………

Chrissy: She was humiliated in gymnastics at age 6 for being the only girl to wear panties under a leotard…….

Chris: That’s right, when Ironically, she tried to be there when I was having girl trouble, or when I was being bullied in Freshmen year of highschool, or the time I got jumped for ratting out trouble makers smoking marijuana in my high school’s parking lot. To top it off, every Alexis yelled at me for not doing what she wanted or whenever I got in trouble for slacking off, Lexi always stood up for me and got me out of trouble. She wanted to be there for me, but I either pushed her away, or was studying abroad for college. I then ended up hurting her by getting caught in an avalanche when I was studying abroad in Scandinavia, and it was over a STUPID Ipod. I ended up making her leave her cheerleading competition when her squad was entering the final round, and I broke her heart, all because I wanted to listen to music when I could have easily gone to the hotel’s gift shop, buy a pair of $10 dollar headphones, and listen to music on Youtube. But I just had to be stupid, get myself trapped in an avalanche, break her heart, and make her cry. I’ve made her cry too many times, and it’s time I stopped.

Chrissy: But know that you were there for her many times when it REALLY mattered. When she was little, everytime she’d cry, you were there to dry her tears, you’d comfort her when she was lonely, you’d make her laugh when she was upset, you called her beautiful multiple times, and you helped her grow into the individual she is today. And the reason why she stayed a virgin as long as she has wasn’t only because of Alexis’s big mistake, it’s also because you held onto your virginity, and set a good example for her. Even though you weren’t always there for her physically, emotionally you were always with her in her heart, and she’s remained pure and innocent because you were good role model for her. There has never been a time where she hasn’t looked up to you. She has always loved you, ever since day one.

Chris: And I always loved her, and I wanted to be there for her as much as I could but…….

Chrissy: Your bitchy sister Alexis got sick of the special bond you 2 had and kept you 2 apart. Lexi told me about it. She used to eve’s drop on Alexis all the time, and many times it was “Chris & Lexi this, or Chris & Lexi that.” Or “it’s not fair, why don’t I have the special bond that Chris and Lexi have?” Which is why you 2 got distant.

Chris: Alexis was always a difficult girl to get along with. I wanted to be a big brother to her but mostly she’d just say “NO, or GO AWAY!”

Chrissy: And it’s really sad because the relationship you had with Lexi was REALLY sweet. She even said that on a dark, storm, and rainy night when she was 6 years old, you were still up listening to music and watching t.v. when she came barging into your room crying. You then picked her up, sat her next to you, played your guitar and sang to her………

Chris: It was “The light is on.” The lyrics went, “It’s alright, the light is on. The darkness has gone to hide. It’s alright, the light is on. The darkness has gone outside, outside your window.”

Chrissy: AWWWWWWWWWW. That is so sweet. She didn’t tell me the song’s name because she couldn’t remember but you did, and that is just the sweetest thing.

Chris: She fell right to sleep once the song ended, and I tucked her in bed, and we slept together. Alexis got REALLY jealous when she found out. LOL!!!! Also because of her jealousy, she and Lexi would often fight over who was gonna marry me when we were grown up. LOL!!!

Chrissy: Yeah, she told me about that too. LOL!!!! But what’s really sweet is the story on how she got her first kiss and she was only 8 years old.

Chris: She got tired of being teased about wearing underwear under her gymnastics leotard, and she wanted to prove to everyone that she wasn’t a baby. She made me promise her that if she did well in her competition, that I had to kiss her. So not wanting to disappoint her, I kept the promise.

Chrissy: Wait a minute, I thought you said you forgot, was I wrong?

Chris: I actually didn’t. I just didn’t want everything flowing to her head.

Chrissy: CHRIS, you meanie!!! It was the sweetest thing, her first kiss was with you, someone she really loved. Heck, my first kiss wasn’t at all perfectly like Lexi’s, and in fact it was both a total disaster and an utter disappointment. Lexi on the other hand thought it couldn’t have been more sweet. She had her first kiss when she was 8, when I had to wait another 8 years before I had mine, so to put it straight, I didn’t have my first kiss until I was 16, and I hated it.

Chris: Please note that it was my first kiss too, and I was 15. Most other guys had their first kiss LONG before me, and were bragging about it left and right. I was then bullied for having my first kiss be with that of my little 8-year-old sister, and I was humiliated about it. Almost all the guys said, “IT’S CHRISSY, THE DORK WHO HAD HIS FIRST KISS STOLEN BY HIS LITTLE 8-YEAR-OLD SISTER!!” Freshmen year just continued to spiral down hill partly because of that. I didn’t want Lexi to feel guilty of it, so rather than tell her about it, I shunned her out.

Chrissy: You still should have told her because if you did, she would have understood, because I’m sure she didn’t mean for you to be bullied like that.

Chris: But the good news is, from that point on, she was left alone, and no one bothered her about wearing panties with her leotard in gymnastics anymore, and that’s all that mattered, was that she was happy. Being bullied in Freshmen year was just a small sacrifice that had to be made. Sophmore year was MUCH better though, and by the time I reached Senior year, no one messed with me. LOL!!

Chrissy: So you put her happiness before yours, even if it made you suffer.

Chris: Yes, but fortunately it was only Freshmen year that I was bullied. Sophmore year though, a lot of my friends from middle school were a year younger than me and we entering Freshmen year. Because almost everyone knew me, my popularity returned, and it didn’t take long for me to get back onto top of the class.

Chrissy: Chris you are such a sweetheart, and I don’t see how could have such lousy luck with girls the way you do. I tell you, girls this day and age just have no appreciation for a precious jewel like you. You are the sweetest boy I’ve ever known, and I really like you. Also being popular in highschool is WAY too overrated. Trust me, I would know. A lot of boys are only after me, Lexi, and Lilly, as well as our former friends Brittany, and Ashley because we’re cheerleaders, and they just wanna play with us and have sex. It’s not because they know and appreciate us from the inside out the way you do. Guys like you are so hard to come across and you have no idea how many girls actually would kill to date a guy like you. Please know that.

Chrissy then gives Chris a kiss on the cheek and again on the forehead.

Chrissy: You’ve been an angel to Lexi, and it’s no wonder that she loves you so much. You have no idea how much I envy her or how much I wished to have known you as well as she does. You’re so special to her; you’re special to me too, and I can’t help but…………..

Chris: But what?.............

Chrissy: Just forget it Chris, it doesn’t matter………….

Chris: Why do you say that? Aren’t we best friends?

Chrissy: Yes we are, but you wouldn’t understand…………

Chris: What do you mean?

Chrissy: Please Chris, just let it go, okay?

Chris: Okay.

A few tears were forming in Chrissy’s eye for she felt hurt that Chris wasn’t getting her message and understanding her feelings.

Chrissy: Lexi is beyond lucky to have you as her brother, and it’s no wonder Alexis was jealous of the special bond you 2 have. You’re a sweet boy Chris, but I wish that you wouldn’t be so dense when it came to girls……….

Chrissy then got up and walked away.

Lilly on the other hand couldn’t take her eyes off of Juan as he was polishing the chrome on Katie Belle’s beautiful domes.

Chrissy: It’s time to go Lilly.

Lilly: Awwwwwwwwww, but………

Chrissy: No buts Lilly, it’s time for bed!!! NOW!!!!!!

Lilly: JEEZE!!!! Jeeze!!! I’m coming Sissy!!!! No need to have a cow!!!!!
Good night Juan.

Juan: Good night Lilly, sleep well.

Lilly then went up to Chris and gently kissed him on the cheek and then again on the forehead.

Lilly: Good night Chrissy, sweet dreams.

Chris: Good night Lilly.

Lilly: Don’t let what my sister said get to you. She’s really sweet and is just envious of your sister. She’ll come around.

Chrissy: LILLY!!!!!!!!!! IT’S TIME FOR BED NOW!!!!

Lilly: COMING SISSY!!!!!

Lilly then gave Chris one more good night kiss on the cheek and then again on the forehead.

Lilly: Good night Chrissy, I love you.

Chris: Love you too Lilly.

Lilly then got up and followed her sister up to bed.

Juan: Well Bro, that’s the last of it. I’m gonna retire for the night as well.

Chris: Okay, sounds like a good plan. I’ll take sleeping beauty to her quarters and put her to bed for the night before retiring for the night myself.

Juan then puts his polishing rag down before climbing off of Katie Belle, and heads up to his suite. Chris then gently picks up his little sister Lexi, and holds her like a princess. He then carries her out of the basement, up the stairs, through the corridors, and into the Master Suite before laying her on the bed, removing her shoes and tucking her in. He then gives her a gently kiss on the forehead and strokes her.

Chris: Good night Lil Sis. I love you.
It’s only 11:15 p.m. and I’m not that tired, so I think I’ll go get a drink and hang out with the rest of the train guys down in the Great Room.

Chris then turns the light out in the Master Suite before closing the door and walking back down stairs to the bar. Chris then gets himself a Moscow Mule and joins Big Joe, Robert, and the rest of the guys in the Great Room on the couch by the T.V.

Big Joe: Hey Christian, how are you doing man?

Robert: Come on and sit down with us.

Chris: I’m doing alright so far. I could use a break after being bombarded by the princess and her friends.

Tom: A little too popular with the girls I see. LOL!!!

Chris: You have no idea. Chrissy and Lexi were holding me by the arms during the entire duration of our dinner, and because of that, I couldn’t really enjoy the calamari, French Onion Soup, Roasted Duck, the Fruit Parfait, or the blood orange sangria.

Jack Verdi: I feel your pain. Once girls get attached to you, it’s almost impossible to get them off.

Jack Anderson: Ain’t that the truth. LOL!!!

Chris: And if they think we burp and fart a lot, OH NO, we are dead wrong. Lexi maybe tiny given that she’s only 5 ft 1 inches tall, and weighs a little over 95 pounds, but BOY, watch out because she is a nuclear bomb every time she touches quiche. No doubt Chrissy and Lilly are just as bad.

Doug: Girls will surprise in every way, shape, and form.

Big Joe: Once they feel comfortable around you, they show their true colors and that is when the tooting begins. Once it starts, there’s no stopping that train. LOL!!!

Jack Anderson: Ain’t that the truth. LOL!!!

Chris: Yep. First I get the tar beat out of me by falling 71 feet down a gorge, wind up in surgery over night, work myself to death for seven days straight with no sleep, and get tugged by Lexi and Chrissy left and right. So if anyone needs an alcoholic beverage, it’s me. LOL!!!

Tom: Well enjoy because you deserve it. LOL

Jack Verdi: And enjoy the silence while it lasts, because you’ll be stuck with those girls for life.

Chris: Though Chrissy left for bed in tears, stating that even though we’re best friends, I wouldn’t understand.

Big Joe: That’s a sign girls make when they really like the special someone they’re telling that to. And I can tell that she has been having her eyes on you.

Robert: If anyone’s been having their eye on you besides your sister, it’s Chrissy, and couldn’t be making her feelings anymore obvious.

Chris: You mean?

Tom: It means she likes you. I’ve been married for over 30 years, and I can tell when something is going on.

Just then all the lights went out.

Guys: HEY, WHAT’S GOING ON???!!!!

Chris: *Talks like Mickey Mouse* UUUUUUHHH HEY!!!!! WHAT’S GOING ON???!!!!! UH-OH!!!

Big Joe: HAAAAA HAAAA HAAAAA!!!! VERY FUNNY!!!

Just then all the lights turn back as Wendy Marvell comes running down the stair case and into the Great Room in a huge panic?

Wendy: CHRIS!!!!! GUYS!!!!!!

Chris: Hey Wendy, what’s up!!!!!

Wendy: IT’S TERRIBLE!!!! EVERYONE IS GONE???!!!!

Chris: What do you mean?

Wendy: I MEAN EVERYONE IS MISSING!!!! MICHAEL, JUAN, AARON, ALEXANDER, LEXI, CHRISSY, LILLY, AND NINA; THEY’RE ALL GONE!!!!!!!!

Just then the Butler came walking in with a letter that was dropped off in the Master Suite.

Bulter: I found this in the Master Suite where your sister Lexi was sleeping. There wasn’t a single trace of her, or any of her belongings. It’s like she vanished without a trace. IT’s the same thing with everyone else. None of their belongings remained. Not a clothing item, nor even a single strand of hair. Nothing of theirs is left. They all upped and vanished without a trace. But I found this letter in your room Master Mandez. Maybe it will state on your friends whereabouts.

Chris:

Dear Mr. Mandez, The Crimson Dragon’s New Master,

We know that you are still alive, as is the Crimson Dragon. We then hear by Challenge you to a sudden death match on our Railway Line. You have only 24 hours or your friends including your precious little sister, will get it. Come show us what you are really made of, and maybe we’ll let your friends go.
If you think we’re joking, we are not, for we are dead serious. If you don’t show yourself with the Crimson Dragon in 24 hours, bad things will happen to your friends.

Signed,

Mike & Cameron Hurley

Ps: Your sister Lexi and her bestfriend Chrissy are such babes. Better hurry up before something happens.

Chris then crumpled the letter and turned dark red in the face while Volvagia turned over and revved up her engine like crazy.

Chris: If those guys think they can do as they please with my friends, then they are dead wrong. They can mess with me and they can mess with Katie Belle, but if they mess with my or lay a hand on 1 hair on Lexi’s or Chrissy’s head then they are USDA TOWARDS DEAD MEAT!!!!!

Chapter 16

Plan Of Attack

Early the next morning Chris was up ranting figuring out a way on how he could save his friends from the clutches of The Dark Railway.

Chris: I knew that the Dark Railway would steep to a low level, but I didn’t think that they’d sink this low. Those guys are gonna pay!!!! If they lay a single hand on Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly, I’m gonna………….

Wendy: Chris, it’s no use, we don’t know where they are, and they’re trying to get to you, so you could fall into their trap again!!! We must fall back and think this out.

Chris: But I promised Lexi that I’d always be there for her and protect her. I promised the same thing to Chrissy and Lilly, and I feel like I’m letting them down.

Wendy: I know Chris, but you’re not letting them down. This isn’t your fault. Those Dark Railway guys are just sickos who like playing tricks on other people’s minds.

Big Joe: She’s right Christian. We gotta come up with a plan.

Robert: And a really good plan at that!!

Chris: But How??!!!

Tom: We’ll go into town at 5:00 p.m. tonight and inform everyone what is going on.

Jack Verdi: We will then asks for ideas on what we should do.

Wendy: Maybe Bob could help us, he may know what to do!!!

Chris: Good point!!! We’ll look for old man Bob Turner. He’s gotta have some ideas since he witnessed the last battle the original Crimson Dragon had with the Dark Railway, maybe he can fill us in on how that actually happened.

Jack Anderson: Who is this Bob if you don’t mind me asking?

Chris: It’s a very long story but he is someone who actually researched the Original of the Crimson Dragon and her mother and sister engines. This may take a while, so I suggest you get some food and drinks from the bar while I tell you everything.

Everyone then went to the bar and ordered their brunch along with morning cocktails while Chris got himself a Mojito before sitting down by the large fireplace in the Great Room and telling everyone everything about the Crimson Dragon’s origins.
From the construction of the old Torch Lake locomotive along with her 2 daughter engines San Juan and Ten Mile to the 2 engines working lives on the Denver South Park & Pacific and Colorado & Southern Railroads. To the locomotives’ retirement, to San Juan’s Restoration, to the San Juan mysteriously showing up in The Magical World. To the San Juan starting off as an ordinary non-special locomotive, to the San Juan falling into the Dark Railway’s trap and ending up getting crushed in a tunnel the same way Katie Belle was badly damaged when she fell of the bridge. To the amazingly similar restoration the San Juan had to that of Katie Belle’s, to the moment the San Juan was beginning to awaken as the Crimson Dragon. To the night that the Crimson Dragon had awoken and defeated the Dark Railway with her magic powers, to the Crimson Dragon’s hibernation and her master’s retirement. Then to what happened to the Ten Mile, and how she ended up in almost permanent storage, to her abandonment in the shed, to almost being restored at the Forney Transportation Museum, to her ending up in the scrap yard before being found by Chris and ending up his possession.

Chris: And when he saw Katie Belle parked outside the restaurant and noticed the differences, he instantly knew that Katie Belle was not the original Crimson Dragon, but her younger sister, who also carries that exact same power. It starts off with steaming and performing incredibly amazing, before getting her tubes sanded out and puffing out golden smoke before lighting up all the plant life like an electrical parade. And the weird part is, the locomotive’s original Mason whistles and bells are the triggers that start the process of the Crimson Dragon’s awakening and the Crimson Dragon inside of Katie Belle is making itself known the same way it did in her older sister the San Juan.

Just then Aleasha appears after hearing everything that was just said.

Aleasha: That is correct. In order to unlock the power of the Crimson Dragon, the locomotive’s original bell and whistle had to be found and installed, but they’re not the only triggers. The overhaul that you performed also played a role. ON both second restorations of the 2 sister engines, the fireboxes were enlarged, more tubes were installed in the boilers, and higher boiler pressures were reached. Dragons use extreme heat as a power source, and the more heat you get, the bigger the fire, and the bigger the fire, the less time it takes for a dragon to awaken and show itself. On the first big test runs, both engines had their tubes sanded out and the sand cleans soot and any dirt out of the tubes and allows for more heat resulting in the dragon to breathe fire, and in this case, the exhaust color of this fire was that of a beautiful gold. As for the lighting up everything like an electrical parade, is a symbol of a dragon’s colorful scales along its body, and scales fall off and hit the ground, and it so happens that the Crimson Dragon’s scales are magical and when they hit the objects they land on, they light up like a bunch of fiber optic lights. And it’s all mainly because of intensified heat from the larger fireboxes, but without the original whistles and bells, the dragons would not have been able to roar, and those roars are the keys into really bringing the Crimson Dragons to life.
But please know that you won’t be alone. Soon you will see Bob Turner and how plays a vital role in this fight. Although the original Crimson Dragon has gone into hibernation, it’s only a matter of time before she reawakens and joins along side your Crimson Dragon.

Chris: But in order for the Crimson Dragons to awaken, the locomotive shells of which they possess, needed to be destroyed and rebuilt to reach their full potential.

Aleasha: Actually only minor modifications were needed like a larger firebox, more tubes, and anything else that would help intensify the heat, along with the original whistles and bells. However, a wreck was probably the only way that they would awaken in such a short amount of time, for the wrecks of the locomotives resulted in the engines needed new fireboxes, and you and the master of the original, thought that bigger was better which brought the awakening all the more sooner.
However, the wreck also taught you and the original masters valuable lessons. Never take your lives for granted, and be more careful because you have people that love and care about you.

Chris: I found that out all too well. Lexi made it loud and clear.

Aleasha: I know. Your sister needs you given that she’s lost so much in such a short time, and the loss is a lot harder on her than anyone would know.

Chris: The poor girl has had her heart destroyed too many times and I maybe a tough guy, but the wreck made me realize that I am not as tough as I thought I was, and that I am not expendable.

Aleasha: You’re original and cannot be replaced. The original master of the Crimson Dragon learned that the hard way too. But through these valuable lessons, you have unlocked a secret and began the process of awakening the Crimson Dragons. Real soon your Crimson Dragon will be active, and shortly after, she will be reunited with her sister.

Chris: But it took major accidents for me and the original master of the Crimson Dragon to realize it.

Aleasha: Unfortunately it did. Now those days are in the past, and what matters is the future.

Chris: And now my next task is to defeat the Dark Railway like the original Crimson Dragon did decades ago, but it won’t be easy now that Mike Hurley and his descendant, Cameron Hurley are pulling the strings behind this.

Aleasha: Mike was a power hungry crybaby who just wanted to control everyone and everything. Cameron looked up to him as a role model and he became the exact same way as his grandpa. No matter how hard his parents tried, it was inevitable for Cameron had the evil blood that Mike had.

Chris: And judging from his appearance, he looks like he’s around my age………

Aleasha: Correct, he is 24 and ½…………………

Chris: No surprise there………he kinda reminds me of myself, like an evil version of myself.

Meanwhile over in a dungeon of a prison cell block, Juan, Aaron, Alex, Mike, Nina, Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly were all being held captive by Mike & Cameron Hurley of the Dark Railway.

Mike: How the fuck did we end up here?

Juan: Yeah what’s this bullshit all about?

Aaron: This is fucked up!

Alex: It’s fucked up big time!

Lexi: OKAY, CAN YOU GUYS STOP CURISING FOR 5 MINUTES PLEASE???!!!! I MEAN COME ON!!!!

Mike: Easy for you to say. Aren’t you at all wondering what’s up with this?

Juan: Yeah, first we were fast asleep in our suites, and now we’re all trapped in a prison cell!!!

Lexi: I KNOW, I know, but still, you don’t have to have every other word be a curse word, I mean come on!!!

Aaron: But you have no problem when your brother Chris curses!!! Why is that?

Alex: Have you gotten used to it that much?

Aaron: Or may is it because you’re in love with your brother the same way Chrissy is?

Lexi & Chrissy: SHUT UP!!!!!

Lexi: Yes I am in love with my brother but he and I used to be so close, and he has been my prince charming ever since I was a little girl. He stole my first kiss, comforted me when I was frightened, dried my tears when I was sad, and took good care of me while I was growing up!!! IS THAT SO WRONG??!!!

Chrissy: I second that, because the poor girl has been through a lot and has lost so much in such a short time!!! I too am in love with Chris because he is the first actual decent guy who doesn’t go around playing with other girls. HE ACTUALLY CARES!!!! FOR ME IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT AND I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT HIM!!! HE IS SUCH A SWEET HEART AND A REAL GENTLEMAN, AND WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT??!!!

Lexi: Nothing is wrong with that because you’re right. It’s why I am also in love with him.

Chrissy: You have no idea, eventhough I haven’t known him long, I have fallen hard for him, and he’s all I really think about.

Lexi: I know how you feel because I’ve been in love with him since he stole my first kiss when I was 8.

Chrissy: And I think that was the sweetest thing. However, your brother is also such an idiot…… I HAVE HINTED AND HINTED TO HIM MULTIPLE TIMES THAT I LIKE HIM AND HE STILL DOESN’T GET IT!!!!

Lexi: That is my brother for ya. Look, he’s been backstabbed, betrayed, and lied to so many times that he can’t really tell whether an action or an intimate conversation is real or not, and sometimes you really have to pour your heart out to him in order for him to get the picture.

Chrissy: The same way you did last night.

Lexi: Exactly!!!!!

Mike: That is kinda creepy with the incest!!!!!

Aaron: I kind of agree with Mike on this.

Alex: As do I.

Juan: Don’t ask me, I don’t know a thing!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: SHUT UP YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!

Lexi: Whether it’s incest or not, it doesn’t matter because I love him, always have, and always will. I don’t care what you think about me, or about my weird, freaky, and even disgusting as you’d like to call it, complex relationship I have with him. I love so much that you wouldn’t understand. I LOVE HIM AND THAT’S FINAL!!!!

Chrissy: ME TOO!!! I AM IN LOVE WITH LEXI’S BROTHER CHRIS BECAUSE HE HAS BECOME MY BEST FRIEND, AND HAS BECOME SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL TO ME!!! If you don’t like that I’m in love with him then TOUGH, because I AM IN LOVE WITH HIM!!!!

Mike: OKAY!!!!!!! Read you girls loud and clear. SHEESHE!!!

Juan: Well you girls do have a point, and I’m sorry about the cursing earlier, it just took me by surprise that’s all.

Aaron: Same here, and now that I think about it, where is Chris?

Mike: That’s what I’d like to know?

Nina: Also where’s Wendy??!!!! I she’s not here, and I’m already out of my mind worried about her!!! She and I haven’t been apart in years, and this is freaking me out!!!

Alex: There has gotta be a logical reason for this.

Just then Mike & Cameron Hurley opened the door to their prison cell.

Mike Hurley: THAT THERE IS!!!!

Cameron: WHILE YOU WERE ALL ASLEEP, WE SNATCHED AND KIDNAPPED YA!!!! BUT YOU GIRLS WERE STILL CLOTHED WHICH SUCKS; ANYWAYS I CAN STILL USE YA FOR ALL FOR A RANDSOME!!!! JUST WISH THAT LITTLE BRAT WENDY DIDN’T GET AWAY!!!!

Mike Hurley: IF HE ISN’T HERE BY TONIGHT TO GIVE US A FAIR FIGHT, YOU GUYS GET BEHEADED ONE BY ONE!!!!

Cameron: AND 2 OF YOU GIRLS BECOME MY MISTRESSES WHILE LEXI & CHRISSY BECOME MY BRIDES!!!!! HAAAAAAA HAAAAAA HAAAAAA HAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Lexi: NO WAY!!!!!!!

Chrissy: PERVERT!!!!!!!!!!

Lilly: I’VE NEVER EVEN HAD A BOYFRIEND!!!!!!!!!

Nina: NEITHER HAVE I!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike: AND WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY BEHEAD US ONE BY ONE????!!!!!!!!

Aaron: AND WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS???!!!!!

Juan: AND WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT WITH US???!!!!

Alex: ALSO WHAT DID CHRIS EVER DO TO YOU???!!!!!!

Cameron: GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I THOUGHT I KILLED CHRIS ON THE BRIDGE ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT NOT ONLY IS HE STILL ALIVE, BUT HE HAS FIXED THAT NO GOOD LITTLE TOY TRAIN OF HIS!!!!!!!!

Mike Hurley: MY GRANDSON TOLD ME “HEY GRANDPA, I DID IT!!!! I GOT RID OF THE CRIMSON DRAGON LIKE YOU WANTED ME TOO!!” ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THE CRIMSON DRAGON HAS BEEN FULLY REFURBISHED LOOKING LIKE NEW JUST LIKE IT WAS AFTER ITS LAST ACCIDENT!!!!!

Cameron: ROBERT TURNER HUMILATED MY GRANDPA BACK THEN AND CHRIS IS NOW DOING THE SAME TO ME NOW!!!! ACCEPT THIS TIME, I CAN USE YOU GUYS AS BATE TO TRAP HIM AND DESTROY HIM AND THE CRIMSON DRAGON ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!!

Everyone then looked at each other in shock and disbelief; to think that Old Man Bob was the original master of the original San Juan Crimson Dragon.

Everyone: OLD MAN BOB?????!!!!!!!!! HE WAS THE ORIGINAL CRIMSON DRAGON’S OWNER???!!!!!!!

Mike Hurley: THAT HE WAS AND HE HUMILATED ME AND ALL OF THE DARK RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVES!!!!!!!

Cameron: BUT WE’LL CHANGE THAT THIS TIME!!!!!!! YOU’LL SEE!!!! CHRIS WILL SOON BE A DISTANT MEMORY AND WILL ALSO BE OUT OF OUR WAY!!!! NOTHING WILL STOP ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

And with that, Mike and Cameron left the prison cell and set to work on firing up the Dark Railway locomotives, while everyone else was looking at each other in shock.

Mike: Do they not know that the Crimson Dragon is actually 2 trains and not just 1?

Aaron: I find it hard to believe that Old Man Bob is the original owner of the San Juan.

Juan: Best not to mention this to them or it can really mess things up.

Lilly: I CAN’T BE HIS MISTRESS, I CAN’T!!!!!!

Chrissy: You won’t be don’t you worry!!!!

Lilly: YOU KNOW I NEVER HAD A FIRST KISS THE WAY YOU AND LEXI HAVE, OR EVEN HELD HANDS WITH A BOY!!!!

Lexi: LILLY!!!! It’s okay Sweetie!!! Nothing’s gonna happen to you, we will make sure of that!!!!

Juan: Know that if anything happens, we’ll be here protect you!!!!

Mike: THAT’S RIGHT!!!!!

Aaron: We won’t let them lay a hand on you. They’ll have to go through us first!!!!!

Alex: We gotta protect Chris’s precious little sister and her friends or else we’d be dead.

Lexi: Awwwwwwe, you guys!!!!

Alex: And Lexi, I want to tell you something.

Chrissy & Lilly: OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!!!!

Alex: Lexi Annabelle Mandez, ever since I first saw you, I thought you were cute, and after seeing how sweet and caring you are, I now actually like you. I do understand that you’re in love with your brother, and have always been since you were little, but I just wanted to tell you how I feel about you. I respect your feelings, but I still hope we can be friends.

Lexi was stunned and a few tears poured down her face for she felt really touched by Alex’s kindness.

Lexi: Awwwwwwwwwe………Alexander you are soooooooooo sweet. That is like one of the sweetest things I have ever heard, and I mean that. You’re really are a sweet boy Alex, and I think you’re really cute too. Even though my heart belongs to Chris, I would love for us to be friends because you really are a sweet boy. If you’d like, I’d be more than happy to hook you up with a fellow cheerleader, and I’d know she’d be very lucky to have you.

Lexi then gently stroked Alex’s face before giving him a gentle kiss on the cheek.

Lexi: I know there is someone really special out there for you, and I promise to help you find her. And I’ll help you by hooking you up with one of my cheerleading friends when I get with my new squad. It doesn’t take me long to befriend a cheer squad, and with that being the case, you’ll have a wonderful girl in your arms in no time.

Lexi then gave Alex another kiss on the cheek.

Lexi: And I hope you and I can be good friends Alex.

Chrissy: Okay Lilly, now is as good a time as any to tell Juan how you feel.

Lilly: SISSY???!!!!!

Chrissy: You can do it Lilly!!!! I know you can!!! If he doesn’t like you back then he’s missing out. You’re a sweet and beautiful girl, and he’d be really lucky to have you. Now go….

Lilly: But Sissy??!!!!

Chrissy: GO!!!!!!!

Lilly then crawled over to Juan to confess how she felt about him.

Lilly: Hey Juan I………….

Juan: Hey Lilly, what’s up?

Lilly: I…………..

Lexi: It’s okay Sweetie; we have your back.

Chrissy: You can do it Lilly!!!

Lilly then a gulp and then took a deep breath before she confessed to Juan how she felt.

Lilly: Juan Carlson Vail, I LIKE YOU!!!!

Juan then looked shocked and amazed for no girl had ever confessed to him in his life; especially not one as beautiful as Lilly.

Juan: Really??!!!!

Lilly: I LIKE YOU JUAN!!!! I THINK YOU’RE CUTE, I THINK YOU’RE SWEET, YOU SEEM TO KNOW YOU’RE STUFF, AND YOU’RE NOT AT ALL LIKE THE JERKS I SEE ALL THE TIME AT SCHOOL!!!! YOU’RE DIFFERENT, A REAL SWEET HEART, AND I LIKE YOU!!!!!!!!!!

Juan: WOW!!!!.............

Lilly: I KNOW THIS IS A LOT BUT I HOPE WE CAN STILL BE FRIENDS!!! I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU HOW I FELT ABOUT YOU, AND I HOPE SOMEDAY WE CAN GO OUT ON A DATE!!!!! YOU’RE SUCH A GOOD GUY JUAN AND I LIKE YOU!!!!!!

Juan then looked at Lilly and could see the tears in her eyes. He then acknowledged Lilly on her bravery and smiled at her.

Juan: That must have been very hard for you to do, and a date sounds nice. I’d love for us to be friends, and maybe we can see how things go, relationship wise that is of course. If our relationship doesn’t work out, we can always be friends, but I’d love to get to know you and go out with you.

Lilly then smiled brightly as the tears rolled down her face. She then wrapped her arms around him and kissed him on the forehead and then again on the cheek.

Juan: You are a very beautiful girl Lilly, and I never thought someone as sweet or as beautiful as you would ask me out. Believe it or not I’ve never had a girlfriend, and was beginning to lose hope at ever finding one.

Lilly: Don’t say that Juan because you are such a sweetheart, and any girl would be very lucky to have you, and now I feel like the luckiest girl around to now have you.

Chrissy: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwe!!!!!!! My Little Lilly has finally grown up and now has her first boyfriend. She’s so cute.

Lexi: That she is. Juan is one lucky guy to have her. She’s so sweet and so innocent, and she couldn’t have found herself a better guy.

Mike: Still creepy that you’re in love with your brother though………

Lexi: Yeah, yeah, GET OVER IT MICHAEL!!!!!

Meanwhile back at the palace, all the guys had fires lit in the fireboxes of all 4 locomotives.

Chris: Aleasha, thanks for your help in supplying magical energy to create a 3rd rail for our standard gauge engines.

Aleasha: No problem. Know that these trains are really only for moral support, the real fight comes down to you and your Crimson Dragon.

Chris: Got it!!! By the way, this auxiliary water car is just extra dead weight, so therefor, I have no use for it anymore. If you can find another small locomotive that actually needs the water capacity, then that would be great.

Aleasha: That is actually not a problem. There are several steam locomotives that are still operational, but haven’t steamed up in a while, and I know just the little engine to give this too.

Chris: Awesome!!! We’ll we’re currently at 150 PSI, and that would be enough to get us going, but not anymore. LOL!!!! It shouldn’t be much longer.

Big Joe: We’re almost up to full pressure as well.

Jack Anderson: Us too!!!

Tom: Same here!!!

Chris: Good!!! The plan is to meet Bob once we arrive in downtown. When we’re there, we’ll set to work on what to do.

Not long after, Katie Belle’s low pressure safety valve pops off at 200 PSI, followed by Graham County number #1925, then Union Pacific Number #4466, and McCloud Number #18.

Chris: And with that, time to open up the main turret to the air compressors and we’re off.

All the engineers then climbed into the cabs of their locomotives and opened up the main valve on the steam turret leading to the air compressor with multiple loud………..

BANG………BANG……………BANG………..BANG………..BANG………..BANG……………BANG………………BANG………….BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANGS!!!!!!!!!!

All 4 engines were ready to go.
All of the engineers and firemen then climbed into the cabs of their locomotives while Chris hopped out of Katie Bell’s cab, backed her onto her train, hooked up her water and air hoses and safety chains, and then he set up the ramp on the baggage car for Volvagia. Volvagia then drove herself up the ramp and parked herself in the baggage car before Chris chained her down good and secure. Chris then climbed back into Katie Belle’s cab when……..

Wendy: CHRIS!!!!! WAIT!!!!!!!!! WAIT UP!!!!!!!!

Wendy Marvell came running down the basement stairs and over to Katie Belle and her train just as all 4 steam trains were about to leave.

Wendy: IF YOU’RE GOING THEN I AM GOING WITH YOU!!!!

Chris: But wendy……….

Wendy: NO BUTS CHRIS!!!!!! I’M GOING WITH YOU!!!!!! LOOK YOUR SISTER LEXI WOULD KILL ME IF I DIDN’T KEEP AN EYE ON YOU!!!!! YOU ARE PRACTICALLY HER MOTHER, FATHER, BROTHER, AND HER BOYFRIEND ALL IN ONE!!!! SHE ALMOST LOST YOU TWICE, AND SHE CAN’T HAVE A THIRD TIME BE A CHARM!!!! SHE NEEDS YOU, AND FOR THAT I MUST MAKE SURE YOU DON’T DO ANYTHING STUPID, NOT TO MENTION NINA AND I HAVEN’T BEEN APART THIS LONG BEFORE IN OUR LIVES!!! NINA NEEDS ME, AND I NEED HER!!! THEREFOR I AM GOING WITH YOU CHRIS, AND THAT IS FINAL!!!!

Chris: Ugh Oh boy!!!! You’re as stubborn as your counterparts from the anime Fairy Tail, and from The Magical Game Of No Return, so I guess I have no choice. Come on in.

Wendy then climbed into Katie Belle’s cab and sat down in the fireman’s seat.

Chris: Okay, fortunately for you, Katie Belle is SUPER easy to fire since her rebuilt. I put a ball valve injector on your side, so if ever you need water, just pull on the lever on that large pipe in front of you, and water will rush into the boiler instantly. Also every time you use the injector, the air compressor will also go off to help air-rate the water to ensure that the boiler is fully coated with water as well as making sure we don’t go through too much. So, if you hear the huffing and puffing every time you open the injector, don’t worry, the air compressor is doing it’s job. You also have your water site glass, and it’s at 2 nuts of water. In general, that’s all it really needs to be on flat and level ground, but on a grade, 3 to maybe 4 nuts are needed.
Also just move the firing valve a little bit towards you, and you will have a roaring fire like no tomorrow, and you only need to open the atomizer a quarter of the way open and just crack open the blower. As for the pressure, we run her at 200 PSI, and it practically stays there. If you have any questions feel free to let me know.

Wendy: Okay………… I think I got it.

Chris: Good!!! Also that rope chord in front of you is for the bell, so you get to ring the bell whenever we depart, slow down to a stop, or if we’re running over a grade crossing, running over a bridge, through a tunnel, or on track embedded in concrete where lots of pedestrians and vehicles are.

Wendy: GOT IT!!!!

Chris: ALRIGHT EVERYONE READY??????!!!!!

Everyone: READY!!!!!!!

Chris: HIGH BALL!!!!!!!

All of the firemen then ring the bells and open up the firing valves, while all of the engineers give 2 blasts on the whistles, release their brakes, throw their Johnson bars forward, ease their throttles open, and all 4 steam locomotives come thundering out of the Palace basement, and steam out onto the Railway line, highballing as fast as their cylinders would take them.
Katie Belle led the high ball with McCloud 18 right on her tail followed by Union Pacific 4466, and the Graham County Shay bringing up the rear.
Chris then sanded out Katie Belle tubes by dumping sand from a small can of sand and into her firebox. This sand then caused her heat to increase, which resulted in Katie Belle to puff gold smoke. As her puffing of gold smoke increased, everything around her lit up like an electrical parade, from all 4 trains behind her, to the plant life, to the trees, to the lake water.
Together, all 4 steam trains thundered along the coast line, through tunnels, over bridges, through gorges, and it wasn’t long until everyone in the downtown city district could hear the echoing of all 4 beautiful train whistles.

Local: WOW!!!! IT’S THE CRIMSON DRAGON AGAIN AND SHE’S GOT REINFORCEMENTS!!!!

Local: YEAH, THOSE DEFINITELY DO NOT SOUND LIKE THE DARK RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVE WHISTLES!!!

Local: YEAH, THOSE WHISTLES SOUND LIKE GHOSTS, THESE SOUND BEAUTIFUL AND MELODIC!!!!

Local: ONE OF THEM SOUNDS LIKE A LOGGING WHISTLE!!!!

Local: I HAVEN’T HEARD A LOGGING WHISTLE IN A LONG TIME!!!!

Local: We better get those who are part of this railroad to fire up their locomotives ASAP!!! We need to be part of this!!!

Local: RIGHT!!!

Just then Katie Belle steamed into the downtown district of the city blowing her beautiful whistle and ringing her beautiful bell along with the other locomotives behind her.
All 4 locomotives came thundering in making everyone’s jaws hit the ground for no one had ever seen so many steam locomotives in their world in such a long time.
All 4 engineers then gently applied their brakes and gently bumped their throttles shut until all 4 locomotives had come to a full and complete stop one by one and side by side.
Chris, Wendy, Big Joe, Robert, Jack Verdi, Jack Anderson, Tom, and Doug, all disembarked their locomotives as Bob Turner steamed in on his cute little red Baldwin 2-4-0T saddle tank engine; blowing its whistle and ringing its bell with 2 beautiful coaches in tow.
Then a beautiful red 2-4-0 tender engine just like the Ernest S. Marsh number #4 from the Disneyland Railroad steamed in followed by 2 2-4-4RT Forney locomotives like the Fred Gurley number #3 and Ward Kimball number #5 from the Disneyland Railroad, along with 2 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler locomotives just like the Walter E. Disney number #1 and the Roger E. Broggie number #3 from the Walt Disney World Railroad, and many other familiar looking steam locomotives in all shapes and sizes.
Bob then climbed out of his little engine after bringing it to a full and complete stop and walked up to Chris.

Bob: Good to see you again Chris and Wendy.

Chris: Likewise Bob.

Bob: Yes indeed, now lets cut down the chase, shall we.

Chris: Yes we should.

Bob: Before you say anything, I have a fairly good idea on what’s going on.

Chris: You do?

Bob: Yes. Mike and Cameron Hurley have kidnapped all of your friends and left you a letter.

Chris: Yes they have, and here is the letter.

Chris then hands Bob the letter that Mike and Cameron Hurley wrote to him.

Bob: How typical and predictable. Mike Hurley did the same thing to the original master of the original San Juan Crimson Dragon over 50 years ago.

Chris: REALLY???!!!!

Bob: Yes, but now is the time we stop that once and for all.

Chris: Yes it is!!!

Bob: As you can see, a bunch of steam trains are all gathered here, and we haven’t had these many steam trains in one place in over 25 years. When the San Juan Crimson Dragon went into hibernation, so did all of these other steam trains, but now with yours awakening, all of these trains have come back out. There will be a final show down between you and Cameron Hurley along with your Crimson Dragon. Not only that, but the San Juan and her master will be returning real soon to join your fight and will take down Cameron’s grandfather Mike Hurley.
We have all gathered her to also show the Dark Railway that we will stand and fight for our railway line. And bring an end to them once and for all.

Chris: Great, now we need a plan, but what and how should we plan this?

Bob: Just like how it was done over 50 years ago, but we’ll take it up a notch……….

Bob, Chris and everyone else then set to work on planning strategies on how to defeat the Dark Railway and rescue Chris’s friends from their clutches.

Chris: Got it!!! Alrighty, sounds like a good plan. So I’ll rig the tunnel so it collapses again, along with the bridge, and what else should we do?

Bob: You will need to do some head on combat, how good are you with a sword?

Chris: I’m okay, I did take up fencing when I was 13, so I should be able to hold my ground against Cameron.

Bob: Good, because Cameron isn’t the one I’d be worried about, it’s his Grandfather Mike, who is the one to worry about.

Bob then hands Chris a massive sword that is over 4 and ½ feet long and it was known as the Legendary Gorean Blade.

Bob: This sword is known as the Gorean Blade; it has been past down from generation to generation, and I swore never to use it, but desperate times call for a desperation measure, so I therefor ask you to do the honor of bringing a stop to Mike and Cameron Hurley once and for all.

Chris: I promise, I will do what I can.

Bob: Excellent!!!

Chris then accepts the blade, places the sheath on his back, and sheaths the sword into place.

Chris: Alright everyone, it’s time to prepare to go into battle.

Chapter 17

Shake Some Action!!!

Bob then backed his little 2-4-0 tank engine onto her new auxiliary water tank car before backing it onto her train, and stopping her to hook up the air and water hoses.

Bob: Thank you very much for the water tanker for my little tank engine. This will certainly come in handy. And while I’m at it……..

Bob then has some of his guys bolt on some wooden saddle baskets on both sides of the tank car’s dome and straddle the water tank like the saddle on a horse. Once the wooden baskets are bolted on, the wood is then treated and firewood is loaded into them.

Bob: Now we both greater fuel and water capacity.

Chris: That is very clever!!! I would not have thought to do that!!!

Bob: You’d be surprised at what can be done with a little imagination.

Chris: No doubt. LOL!!! By the way, I see that your engine and coaches had no name, and it’s definitely worthy of individuality.

Bob: I never thought of that; I guess I gotta find some then to think of.

Chris then smiled and knew just what names to put on them.

Chris: I have just the names Bob…….

Chris then whispered to bob on the right names to put on the engine, the combine, the coach, and the parlor car.

Bob: PERFECT!!!! I’ll use those names then. ☺

Chris: Awesome. ☺

Just then a lot of the high school’s cheerleaders along with many gymnasts came running over into the town square along with multiple jocks, gamers, and railfans alike.

Bob: Looks like everyone’s gathered here for your battle Chris…..

Chris then gets out his GPS, and selects the map, and tells Bob where to meet him when the time is right.

Chris: Right after I’ve rescued my friends, Rendezvous at this section. At this time, we’ll have some fun and play tricks on the Dark Railway because they don’t know that the Crimson Dragon is not just 1 entity. Then we’ll back them into a corner and see how things go from there. But I must first rig the bridge and tunnel so they are traps in order for this to work.

Bob: You have thought this through long and hard, and you’ve planned it out very well young man.

Chris: Thanks. I put 2 and 2 together, and I know you are the original master and the owner of the San Juan Crimson Dragon. The one who got crushed in the tunnel, rebuilt the San Juan after the accident, and defeated the Dark Railway 50 years ago; it was you, wasn’t it?

Bob: Hahaha!!!! You’re a really sharp guy when it comes to this stuff. And I am so glad that the Ten Mile has ended up in your possession, for she is in the hands of a fine young individual who knows his stuff. Now, let’s get this show on the road and show everyone we mean business, tell everyone that we won’t back down without a fight, and show the Dark Railway that they’re messing with the wrong trains.

Chris: You got it!!!!

Chris then climbed up Katie Belle’s tender ladder, and stood up on top of her roof.

Chris: Alrighty!!! I don’t know how to say this, but the Dark Railway has returned!!!!!!! They have targeted me, and almost succeeded in killing me and our beloved Crimson Dragon. Katie Belle and I have been banged up and wounded but it’ll take more than a wreck and a 71 foot fall off a bridge to destroy us. We are back and we’re more powerful than ever, so if the Dark Railway thinks we’re done, they are dead wrong!!!! They have kidnapped my friends but they won’t get away with it. They have pissed me off, now I’m mad, and they won’t get away with it. Now that they’ve targeted me, it’s just a matter of time before they go after you too. Now I ask you; ARE YOU GONNA LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT??!!!

Everyone: NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Chris: ARE YOU GONNA LET MIKE AND CAMERON HURLEY ALONG WITH THEIR DARK RAILWYA PUSH YOU AROUND AGAIN LIKE THEY DID 50 YEARS AGO!????!!!!!

Everyone: NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: ARE YOU READY TO FIGHT BACK AND DEFEND YOUR RAILWYA??????!!!!!!!!!

Everyone: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: AWESOME!!!!!!! I PROMISE YOU THAT WE WILL DESTROY THE DARK RAILWAY AND I WILL PERSONALLY TAKE DOWN MIKE AND CAMERON HURLEY FOR GOOD ALONG WITH THEIR DARK RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone: YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: TIME TO SHAKE SOME ACTION EVERYONE!!!!!

Just then Volvagia turned on her radio and The Flamin Groovie’s, Shake Some Action was playing. Then magically, Katie Belle activated Chris’s iphone’s music selection and played the song on her train’s sound system as well. Then the whole town’s PA System was playing the song.

Chris: Looks like I have no choice; Volvagia Old Girl, if you wouldn’t mind.

Volvagia: Beep beep!!!

Volvagia then opened up her trunk and threw Chris’s red Fender Stratocaster electric guitar at him along with his wireless router to hook connect to multiple amplifiers.
Chris then slid on his guitar, plugged in the electoral chord to the wireless router, turned on the router, and began playing along with the music.

Chris: I will find a way
To get to you some day.
Oh, but I, babe, I'm so afraid I'll fall, yeah.
Now can't you hear me CAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL?
Shake some action's what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I'm sure that's all you need
To make it all right.

It's taken me so long
To get where I belong
Oh, but, oh, please don't send me back that way, yeah.
For I will make you PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shake some action's what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I'm sure that's all you need
To make it all right.

WWWWWWHOOOOOOOOO-WHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you don't dig what I say
Then I will go away.
And I won't come back this again. No.
'Cause I don't need a FRIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shake some action's what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I'm sure that's all you need
To make it all right.

Chris then took the song into a guitar solo before jumping down through Katie Belle’s cab hatch, and into her cab. Chris then took off his guitar, and hug it on a tool hanger, while Volvagia then drove back into the baggage car and parked herself.
The song however continued to play over the PA system and radios while Wendy jumped into Katie Belle’s cab, opened the firing valve along with the atomizer and blower valves, and rang the bell. Chris then gave 3 blasts on the whistle, through the Johnson Bar in reverse, released the brakes, eased the throttle open, and Katie Belle then took off in reverse while many other engines backed up and moved out as well.

Bob then got aboard his little train and steamed off to his roundhouse area.

Bob: Phil, can you please take over for me on this train? There is something I gotta do. The original Crimson Dragon’s time to return has finally come, and I must get her ready.

Phil: You got it Bob!!!

And with that, Bob sets off to fire up the original San Juan Crimson Dragon.
Meanwhile out on the railroad line, Chris was telling Wendy his plans on his first strategy on fighting The Dark Railway.

Chris: Okay, so here’s the plan. I am gonna booby trap the Ashtabula Bridge as well as the tunnel.

Wendy: Okay, but how are you gonna do that?

Chris: It just so happens that I got ahold of C-4 dynamite and LOTS of it.

Wendy: YOU DON’T MEAN???!!!!!

Chris: YEP!!! I’m gonna rig them the blow up and collapse with some of the Dark Railway engines on them!!!

Wendy: BUT THAT IS DANGEROUS!!!!!!

Chris: I know, but as you know, a fall like that is mortal to a locomotive and even fatal as you found out. Fortunately, Katie Belle and I are a lot smarter now, and while I install the bombs on the bridge, Katie Belle will be on one side, and I’ll be hooked onto tow cables and tethers. As for the tunnel, you and Katie Belle won’t be in there, and I have a heavy suite of armor to protect me from falling rocks.

Wendy: Phew, you scared me for a moment………

Chris: I planned ahead for this. I also plan to trick the Dark Railway locomotives with Bob. Ya see, Bob is the original Master of the Crimson Dragon, and given that the Crimson Dragon is 2 engines instead of 1, this gives us a better chance to fight back, and confuse the hell out of the Dark Railway locomotives. They don’t know that the Crimson Dragon is 2 engines, and they won’t expect to see 2 Crimson Red colored Mason Bogie engines with matching Train consists.

Wendy: WOW!!!! I get what you’re saying!!!!!! Since both of you were played into their trap, it will be the other way around this time!!!

Chris: Yep!!! Those engines from The Dark Railway will be lured into our trap and they won’t see it coming. LOL!!!!!

Meanwhile back in his roundhouse, Bob set to work on firing up the Old San Juan Crimson Dragon.

Bob: The time has come for us to once again hit the rails. The time has once again come for you to shine and bring light to this Magical Railway. Please shine, roar, and thunder with all your might just like you did over 50 years ago. Please bring this Magical Railway back to life and stop the Dark Railway once again!!!!!

Bob then digs his large coal shovel into a pile of coal, lights a match and sets the coal on fire before shoveling it into San Juan’s firebox. Bob then banked his fire by shoveling in more coal all around the inside of the firebox until it was so full that no more coal would fit. Bob then filled up the water tank, and filled up the boiler with water before opening up all the valves.
Over the next several minutes, San Juan’s boiler pressure climbs.
Meanwhile Bob’s little 2-4-0 tank engine gets her new name painted on her cab side panels in beautiful gold leaf lettering along with her combine, coach and parlor.
2 brand new open-air cars are added to the consist and get their names painted on as well. The locomotive’s auxiliary tank car then gets a beautiful coat of gloss red paint along with beautiful wood stains for the wood carrying baskets that straddle the water tank. A cute little kerosene burning lamp gets added and bolted onto the rear of the tank car.
More kerosene gets added into the little engines headlamp, while Bob’s railway men set to work on oiling up the rods, and polishing the brass, and go as high as to polish the little engine’s beautiful brass cap stack.
The wood is then restocked in the locomotive’s bunker and auxiliary carrying baskets, and her water level gets topped off in her saddle tank and water car before Phil takes the little engine and her train out of the roundhouse and back out on to the railroad line.

Bob: I have no regrets in building that beautiful little engine. She will someday become a fine piece for everyone to admire. ☺

Bob then set to work on oiling up the San Juan all around and then set to work on polishing her beautiful chrome until it shined like silver. It wasn’t long until the whole entire train was as shiny and sparkling as her younger sister Katie Belle, and San Juan’s pressure gauge then began to read 150 PSI.

Bob: Alright!!!! Just 50 PSI to go!!!

Meanwhile, a bunch of other trains were hard at work running up and down the railroad line. Some were back in rock quarries, some were back out in the woods hauling logs and lumber, some were hauling passengers, some were hauling freight, and some were moving back and forth in railroad yards moving cars about.
It was like the Magical Railway was finally coming back to life before the Crimson Dragon’s hibernation.
McCloud 18, UP 4466, and the Graham County Shay were also hard at work assisting all the other trains in their tasks.
Big Joe, Robert, and the rest of the guys were having a ball.

Big Joe: NOW THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!!!

Robert: THIS IS STEAM RAILROADING AT IT’S FINEST!!!!

Jack Anderson: WE’RE FINALLY ACTUALLY PUTTING THIS ENGINE TO WORK!!!

Jack Verdi: AND NOT EVEN 50 PLUS CARS ARE ENOUGH TO PHASE HER!!!!!

Tom: THIS SHAY IS FINALLY DOING WHAT IT WAS BUILT TO DO!!!!!

Doug: AND THE FUN IS JUST BEGINNING!!!!

Big Joe: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE STEAM!!!!!!

McCloud 18 was hauling extremely heavy freight trains up and down the Railroad line, while UP 4466 was moving over 50 plus cars coupled to her about in different railroad yards while the Graham County Shay was helping logs and lumber up in the mountains. Even though they were the only standard gauged locomotives hauling narrow gauge train cars, coupler adapters, along with the 3rd Standard Gauge Rail made it so that these locomotives could help out in completing the tasks. Due to their larger sizes and extra power, they could handle more than twice the loads of all the much smaller narrow gauge engines, but they were restricted from going in some areas.

Big Joe: NOW THIS SUCKS!!!

Robert: YEAH, WE CAN’T FIT IN THE TUNNELS UP AHEAD AND WE’RE TOO HEAVY FOR THE BRIDGES!!!!

Jack Anderson: REALLY TIGHT FIT TO MOVE BY SOME OF THESE CARS!!!!

Jack Verdi: IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO SQUEEZE BY SOME OF THEM!!!!

Tom: GREAT!!! NOW SOME OF THE CURVES ARE ON THE SIDES OF CLIFFS, AND OUR WEIGHT AND EXTRA WIDTH WILL CAUSE US TO TOPPLE OVER!!!!

Doug: UGH-OH BOY!!!!!

Everyone: HELP!!! WE CAN’T FIT!!!!!!!

Finally, the San Juan Crimson Dragon’s low pressure safety valve popped off at 200 PSI.

Bob: Alright, now there’s one more thing left to do….

Bob then opened up the main valve to the steam turret that lead to the air compressor and with a very loud……..

BANG………BANG……………BANG………..BANG………..BANG………..BANG……………BANG………………BANG………….BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG!!!!!!!!!!

The Original Crimson Dragon was ready to go.

Bob: Alright, time for us to shine!!!!

Bob then gave 2 blasts on the whistle, released the brakes, and eased the throttle open, and the San Juan began rolling.

Bob: Alright, it’s been a long time since we’ve hit the rails together, but lets show them that we maybe old, but we still have a lot of fight left in us.

Bob then grabbed a small can of sand, and then he dumped the sand into the firebox. And just then the San Juan began puffing out gold smoke just like she did over 50 years ago. Shortly after all the plant life, trees, and lake water began to light up like an electric light parade just like it did over 50 years ago.

Bob: YOU STILL GOT IT!!!!!

Just then a grade crossing appeared in the San Juan’s headlamp, meanwhile over on Katie Belle, a tress bridge appeared right in her headlamp.

Bob: CROSSING AHEAD!!!

Chris: TRESS BRIDGE AHEAD!!!!!!

Both engine’s bells were ringing as they approached their bridge and grade crossing, and together both Bob and Chris tugged on their whistle chords for the 4 whistle grade crossing blast with a………

WHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The sounds of both engines whistles pierced through the night sky and everyone for a moment stopped and were in shock to hear both whistles echoing.

Local: THE CRIMSON DRAGON!!!!!!!!

Local: SHE HAS REAWAKENED!!!!!!!!!!!!

And with that, both Crimson Dragon locomotives where fully awakened and ready to go.

Chris & Bob: TIME TO SHAKE SOME ACTION AND DESTROY THE DARK RAILWAY ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!

Chapter 18

Right Into The Danger ZONE!!!

Chris: Okay, traps are set, both the bridge and tunnel have been rigged to blow, and now all that lies ahead now is to rescue everyone. After everyone has been brought back to safety it’s up to me and Bob to fight off the Dark Railway.

Wendy: Okay, so do you know where they are located?

Chris: No idea, but Katie Belle does. She has fully awakened and will take us to where we need to go.

Wendy: GOT IT!!!

Meanwhile over at the Dark Railway’s round house, all 5 engines being fired up and readied to go out and wreak havoc.

Mike Hurley: ALRIGHT BOYS!!!!! THIS IS WHEN WE SEPARATE THE MEN FROM THE WIMPS!!!!! WE GOT OUR ASSES KICKED OVER 50 YEARS AGO, BUT I AM NOT GONNA LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN!!!! DO YOU HEAR ME???!!!!!

Cameron: MY GRANDPA HAS BEEN HUMILATED AND SHUNNED FROM SOCIETY AND NOW I WILL BE TOO UNLESS WE TAKE DOWN AND DESTROY THE CRIMSON DRAGON ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!!

Mike Hurley: I WILL NOT WANT TO HEAR ANY EXCUSES WHATSOEVER IF I HEAR OF FAILURE!!!!! YOU WILL DESTROY THE CRIMSON DRAGON AND THAT SON OF A BITCH KID!!!!! What was his name again?

Cameron: CHRISTIAN ALLEN MANDEZ!!!!!!!

Mike Hurley: THANK YOU!!!! YOU WILL DESTROY THAT CHRISTIAN, NO ANDS IFS OR BUTS!!!!!

Roy Halim: How do we destroy them?

Max Lamana: That’s what I’d like to know?

Mikey Hurley: WHEN WE GET TO THAT, WE WILL TELL YOU!!!!

John: What will happen if we fail?

Cameron: DON’T GO THERE BECAUSE THE CONSEQUENCES WILL BE EXTREMELY SEVERE!!!!!!
But unknown to the Dark Railway, Katie Belle was steaming into their open warehouse right next door. Most of the guards weren’t paying attention and were instead focused on pictures of Lexi and Chrissy in their cheerleading uniforms.

Guard: AWWWWW MAN!!!!!! Lexi is such a babe!!!!!

Guard: AS IS CHRISSY!!!!!

Guard: AWWWWWWW MAAANNNNN!!!!! Cameron Hurley is such a lucky guy to have them for his brides!!!!

Guard: WHAT I WOULDN’T GIVE TO HAVE THEM MARRY ME!!!!!!

Chris then slowed Katie Belle down to a full and complete stop and locked on her brakes. He then climbed out of the cab, and drew out his sword as he walked up to the guards.

Chris: I’d be careful on whose girls I’d be hitting on if I were you!!

Guard: HEY MAN, THESE ARE CAMERON HURLEY’S GIRLS AND NO ONE’S GETTING THEM!!!

Chris: Really??!!!! Because one of those girls just happens to be my little sister and the other one happens to be my best friend.

Guard: WHAT THE???!!!!!!

Guard: CHRISTIAN ALLEN MANDEZ!!!!!

Chris: NO ONE WILL DARE LAY A HAND ON MY SISTER OR MY BEST FRIEND AND GET AWAY WITH IT!!!!

Wasting no time, Chris then did a sword spin attack and knocked out all the guards in one shot!!!!

Chris: The next time you hit on someone’s little sister and best friend, make sure they’re not a master of swordsmanship or the master of the Ten Mile Crimson Dragon because that maybe your downfall.

Wendy was in complete shock and awe of what she had just seen. She couldn’t believe that Chris managed to take out 4 guards in one shot without breaking a sweat.

Wendy: OH MY GOD!!!! THAT WAS SO COOL!!!!!!

Chris: It’s not that hard to knock out a few guys with a few sword techniques. Heck their cuts aren’t even deep enough to make them bleed. They were just enough to hit vital areas to knock them out. If I wanted them dead, it would have taken me longer to take em out.

Wendy: STILL THAT IS SO AMAZING!!!!! Lexi is a really lucky girl to have you as her big brother and it’s no wonder that she’s in love with you.

Chris: LOL I wouldn’t go that far, but I still won’t let anyone lay a hand on her. She’s far too precious for me not to protect and she’s still in many ways just a little girl and has a long ways to go. Heck you’re more mature than her in some ways. LOL!!!

Wendy: *Giggles* I wouldn’t say that but thanks. You really are a very sweet boy, and Chrissy has REALLY good taste.

Chris: What do you mean by that?

Wendy: You’ll find out soon enough. *Giggles*

Chris: Okay………. Now to get back to our task, our next big challenge is getting inside to access the prison………..

Chris then sees a hand print identification screen in front of a set of steel doors, and notices one of the unconscious guards by the door.

Chris & Wendy: There’s our answer.

Chris then opened up the baggage car, unchained Volvagia, and set up her ramp.

Chris: Okay Old Girl, time to us to rescue our friends.

Volvagia: BEEP BEEP!!!

Volvagia then drives down the ramp, out of the baggage car and over to the door. Chris then picks up the unconscious guard’s hand and places it on the hand print screen. A light then flashes green and the 2 steel doors open up.
Chris and Wendy walk down the various corridors of the prison cell blocks while Volvagia follows them.

Chris: Okay, here is the biggy, which cell would they be in?

Wendy: That’s what I’m having trouble finding out as well…….

Volvagai: BEEP BEEP!!!!!!!

Just then Volvagia revved up her engine and took off.

Chris: WAIT OLD GIRL, STOP!!!!

Volvagia: BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP!!!!!!!

Volvagia then went flying down the corridors at 12 miles per hour, while Chris and Wendy ran after her but struggled to keep up.

Meanwhile over in the prison cell, everyone could hear the sound of a familiar engine revving.

Lexi: VOLVAGIA IS THAT YOU???!!!!!

Volvagia: BEEP BEEP!!!!

Lexi: IT IS!!!!!

Chrissy: THAT MUST MEAN!!!!!!

Chris then gets out his 38 caliper revolver gun and aims at the prison cell’s door lock.

Chris: EVERYONE, STEP AWAY FROM THE DOOR AND MOVE TO THE SIDES, I’M GONNA BLAST THIS THING OPEN!!!!!

Chris then shoots at the lock multiple times with a very loud…….

BANG BANG, BANG BANG!!!!!!

Before kicking the door open and running inside the prison cell.

Lexi & Chrissy: CHRIS!!!!!

Lexi and Chrissy then go running up to Chris before wrapping their arms around him and kissing him left and right.

Chris: AAAHHHHHH!!!!!! GIRLS!!! COME ON!!!!! We’re in a hurry here!!!!!

Lexi: I KNEW YOU’D COME HERE FOR US, I JUST KNEW IT!!!!!

Chrissy: ME TOO CHRIS!!!!! I KNEW IN MY HEART THAT YOU’D RETURN!!!!!!

Nina: WENDY!!!!

Wendy: NINA!!!!!

Wendy and Nina then ran up to each other and hugged each other tightly.

Nina: I MISSED YOU SO MUCH WENDY!!!!

Wendy: ME TOO NINA!!!!

All of the other guys then run up to Chris.

Mike: Good to see ya man!!!

Juan: Glad you’re okay Bro!!!

Aaron: We’re getting a little worried Man.

Alex: Unfortunately Lexi friend zoned me because she’s in love with you.

Chris: Lexi still has some growing up to do, so I’ll talk to her.

Juan: By the way Bro, Lilly’s my girlfriend now.

Lilly: But I still love you Chris!!!

Chris: That’s great you 2, I’m really happy for you.

Then all of a sudden, an alarm went off, and everyone in the engine house next to the large warehouse knew what was going on.

Mike Hurley: OH SHIT!!!!!

Cameron: CHRIS HAS RELEASED THE PRISONERS!!!!!!! GUARDS, AFTER HIM!!!!!! AFTER HIM!!!!!!

Chris: FLYING FUCKING SHIT!!!!! WE’RE IN BIG TROUBLE!!!! OLD GIRL, FOLD DOWN YOUR BACK SEATS, WE’RE GONNA NEED EVERY LAST MILLIMETER OF SPACE YOU GOT!!!!!

Volvagia: BEEP BEEP!!!

Volvagia then opened up her doors and folded down her rear seats before Lexi jumped into the passengers seat, and everyone else then piled in.
Multiple guards then came running up to Chris and attempted to jump and attack him, but Chris wasn’t having any of it.

Chris: If you guys think you can take on me then BRING IT ON!!!!

Volvagia then turns on her radio, select’s Aha’s Take On Me on Chris’s Iphone.

Chris then draws out the Gorean blade and begins fighting the guards left and right.

Chris: talking away
I don't know what
I'm to say I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love, okay?
TAKE ON ME, (take on me)
TAKE ME ON, (take on me)
I'll be gone
IN A DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!
So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
I'll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry
TAKE ON ME, (take on me)
TAKE ME ON!!!!!, (take on me)
I'll be gone
IN A DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!
Oh the things that you say
Is it live or
Just to play my worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway
TAKE ON ME, (take on me)
TAKE ME ON, (take on me)
I'll be gone
IN A DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!
(TAKE ON ME, take on me)
(TAKE ME ON, take on me)
I'll be gone (take on me)
IN A DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris then performed a Sword Spin attack and knocked out all guards in one shot. Chris then re-sheathed the Gorean Blade before climbing on top of Volvagia, jumping into the Driver’s seat through the moon room, depressing her clutch, shifting her into 5th gear, giving 2 blasts on the horn, and stomping on her throttle as hard as he good.

Volvagia: BEEP BEEP!!!!!!

Volvagia then took off in a cloud of smoke with all 4 of her tires spinning and burning rubber. Multiple other guards tried to attack her but it was no use, Volvagia was just going to fast and was far too powerful!!!!
Mike and Cameron Hurley however were not happy.

Mike Hurley: GUARDS WHAT ARE WE PAYING YOU FOR??? BEING BORING????!!!!!

Cameron: GET THAT CAR!!!!!! DEAD OR ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!

More and more guards attempted to jump and attack Volvagia, but it was no use as she continued to drive through the long and twisted corridors of the prison cell blocks.

Mike: WOW!!!! MAN!!!!

Juan: CHRIS IS A CRAZY DRIVER WHEN HE WANTS TO BE, SO LOOK OUT!!!!

Lexi: I KNOW!!!!! LOL!!!!! I’VE DEALT WITH IT FOR A LONG TIME!!!! LOL!!!!!

Chrissy: A TOTALLY BADASS SIDE OF YOU CHRIS!!!!! I LIKE IT!!!! JUST BE CAREFUL!!!!

Chris: OH, I am!!! LOL!!!! I haven’t driven like this since my street racing days in college.

Lexi & Chrissy: WHAT????!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: YOU WERE STREET RACING????!!!!!!!

Lexi: IN COLLEGE!!!!!!!

Chris: YEP!!!! When I went to automotive repair school, which at the time was an all males class, I was bullied for driving my mom’s hand me down car, and was hazed and harassed for still being a you know…….virgin. Pornography was shoved in my locker, in my lap top and on Volvagia’s windshield almost every single day. I got sick of it, and when the chance came to get people to back off, I took advantage of the chance. There was a car show later on that year, that of which my car took part in, and there was street racing too. Volvagia and I raced every single challenger, and mopped the floor with all of them. No one has messed with me and Volvagia since then. Heck the Old girl has been 100 miles per hour so many times it’s not even funny. LOL!!!!

Lexi: It’s kinda like how I felt in gymnastics when I was 8 for being teased because I was the only girl to wear underwear under my leotard, and why I made you promise to kiss me. When you stole my first kiss, no other girl messed with me again, but still…….. Going as fast as 100 MILES PER HOUR!!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW DANGEROUS THAT IS?????!!!!!

Chris: That’s nothing, Volvagia and I have gone over 200 miles per hour on a race track.

Chrissy: As cool as it sounds, it also scares me.

Lexi: THAT’S IT!!!! THERE WILL BE NO MORE STREET RACING, AND NO MORE DRIVING ANYWHERE CLOSE TO 100 MILES PER HOUR!!!! I FORBID IT!!!!!

Chris: That takes the fun out of driving!!!!

Lexi: Well you’re having me hold onto my virginity until I’m 21!!!! So it’s fair that enforce a rule on you too!!!! I mean, I’m only doing this because I love you, and I almost lost you twice. I can’t lose you again, okay?

Lexi then kissed Chris on the cheek and held his hand.

Lexi: I love you more than anything; you mean the world to me, and losing you is something I can’t even bare the thought of. I love you so very much Chris, please know that.

Mike: Here we go again with the crazy incest.

Lexi: THAT’S ENOUGH OUT OF YOU MICHAEL!!!! DEAL WITH IT AND GET OVER IT!!!!
Chris: Chris and this is why I prefer to be driving with 900 pounds of cargo in the trunk with no rear view visibility than carrying passengers!!!! Cargo doesn’t talk back, or bother you about your mistakes!!! You can drive 85 miles an hour on the highway and it won’t talk back to you. Do that with passengers and they complain. And best of all cargo is drama free!!!!

Mike: I hear ya man!!!

Aaron: Amen to that!!!

Alex: I second that!!!!

Juan: Me too!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Wendy, and Nina: BOYS!!!!!!!!
Just then many guard’s were blocking the prison cell block’s escape opening as Katie Belle and her train were coming into view.

Chris: Just great!!!! MORE OF THESE GUYS TO DEAL WITH!!!!!

Just then Volvagia did the unthinkable and popped a 45 degree angled wheelie causing all the guards to freak out and run out of Volvagia’s way.

Guards: HOLY SHIT!!!! GET OUTTA THE WAY!!!!!!

Volvagia: BEEP BEEP!!!!

Volvagia’s front end then slammed hard down on the ground before she drove herself up the ramp and parked herself smack dab in the middle of Katie Belle’s baggage car.

Chris: OLD GIRL, I DIDN’T KNOW YOU COULD DO THAT OLD GIRL!!!! I THOUGHT ONLY REAR ENGINED CARS DO!!!!!

Lexi: OKAY; THAT SCARED ME!!!!

Chrissy: I HOPE I DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN!!!

Lilly: ME TOO!!!!

Nina & Wendy: WE’RE WITH YOU!!!!

Mike: THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!

Juan: I HOPE SHE DOES THAT AGAIN!!!!

Aaron: ME TOO!!!!

Alex: I’M WITH YOU ON THAT!!!!

Lexi: OH NO!!!! VOLVAGIA YOU’RE NOT DOING THAT EVER AGAIN!!!! I SWEAR IF YOU DO THAT AGAIN, I’M GONNA EAT QUICHE AND FART SO BAD THAT YOUR INTERIOR WILL WREAK FOR OVER A MONTH!!!!

Volvagia’s light bulbs then opened wide and she shook really hard in fear of the consequence.

Chris: That’s it, game over!!!! When she makes that kind of a threat, you know you can’t do the action again. It was fun while it lasted Old Girl.

Mike: Is it really that bad??!!!

Chris & Chrissy: OH YEAH!!!! IT IS!!!!!

Lexi: YOU’RE ONE TO SPEAK CHRISSY, YOU’RE PRETTY BAD YOURSELF!!!!!

Chrissy: Hey, AT LEAST I GIVE A WARNING BEFORE I DO IT!!!! LILLY ON THE OTHER HAND IS AN EVEN WORSE STINK BOMB THAN ME!!!!

Lilly: HEY!!! IT’S NOT MY FAULT THAT I HAVE SENSITIVE TUMMY!!!!

Chrissy: I’M JUST SAYING THAT I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHOSE BAD!!! THEN AGAIN, ALL THE GIRLS ON THE CHEER SQUAD ARE REALLY BAD AND THAT’S WHY I NEVER CHANGE IN THE LOCKER ROOMS ANYMORE!!!!

Alex: And now the truth is out!!! LOL!!!!

Lexi: HEY, US GIRLS AREN’T ALWAYS SO PERFECT!!!!

Chrissy: WE BURP, WE FART, AND WE STINK TOO!!!

Lilly: IT’S REALITY!!!!

Lexi: SO GET USED TO IT!!!

Chris: HELLO!!!! WE’VE GOT BIGGER PROBLEMS TO DEAL WITH HERE!!!! THOSE GUARDS ARE COMING BACK WITH REINFORCEMENTS!!!!!

Chris, Juan, and everyone else set to work on chaining down Volvagia and pulling up her loading ramp as more and more guards were running towards Katie Belle and her train. Chris then scrambled out of the baggage car, through the open-air car, jumped onto Katie Belle’s tender ladder, climbed on top of her tender tank, and jumped into her cab.
The guards then attempted to climb aboard Katie Belle when……..

Chris: I DON’T THINK SO!!!!!!!!

Chris then pulled up on the blow down valve, and boiling hot steam and water came gushing out of Katie Belle’s boiler at a powerful rate on both sides of her, blowing all of the guards away from her.

Chris: IF YOU THINK YOU GET 100 YARDS WITHIN MY ENGINE, YOU ARE DEAD WRONG!!!!

Chris then yanked on the whistle chord giving 3 blasts before releasing the brakes, throwing the Johnson Bar into Reverse, yanking the throttle open, and with a lot of puffing and wheel slip, Katie Belle takes off into the night.
Just as Katie Belle goes thundering out of the warehouse, all 5 Dark Railway locomotive’s low-pressure safety valves pop off.

Mike Hurley: ALRIGHT!!!! NOW IS THE TIME TO DESTROY THEM ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!

Cameron: AFTER THEM!!!!! AFTER THEM!!!!!

Just then the Dark Railway locomotives start taking off after Katie Belle with Old 27 Leaving first followed by the Troublesome 0-8-0 saddle tank, and then the Cursed 311.

Mike Hurley: NOW IT’S TURN TO SHOW THEM WHO IS THE BOSS!!!!

Cameron: CHRIS!!!!! YOU ARE MINE!!!!

Locomotives number #40 and number #93 blew their whistles and took off in pursuit of Katie Belle.
Volvagia then select’s Kenny Login’s Danger Zone on Chris’s Iphone, and Katie Belle also selects it through Chris’s music selection on the train’s computer memory, and Danger Zone begins playing on the Train’s PA system.


Chris: VERY APPROPRIATE BECAUSE WE ARE ON THE HIGHWAY TO THE DANGER ZONE!!!!

Chris then picked up the microphone and informed everyone over the train’s PA system.

Chris: IF YOU WANNA KNOW WHO TRIED TO KILL ME AND KATIE BELLE, WELL GO TO THE OPEN AIR CAR BEHIND THE LOCOMOTIVE AND LOOK IN FRONT OF YOU!!!!

Everyone then scrambled into the open air car right behind Katie Belle, leaned out on the sides and gasped in horror.

Chris: THOSE ARE THE ENGINES!!!!!! OLD 27, TROUBLESOME 0-8-0 SADDLE TANK, CURSED 311, AND THE GHOST TRAIN LOCOMOTIVES NUMBER #40 AND NUMBER #93!!!!

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!!

Chrissy: THOSE TRAINS FREAK ME OUT!!!!

Lilly: THEY’RE CREEPY!!!!!!

Chris: I MUST CONFESS, I’VE NEVER BEEN SCARED RUNNING A STEAM LOCOMOTIVE BEFORE BUT THESE GUYS HAD ME SHAKEN TO THE CORE!!!! ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY BACKED ME INTO A CORNER AND TRAPPED ME ON THE BRIDGE!!!!

Lexi: THOSE DIRTY NO GOOD……………

Chrissy: ROTTEN FILTHY DISPICABLE………….

Lilly: FUCKEN SONS OF BITCHES ASSHOLE BASTARDS!!!!!!!!

Chrissy and Lexi then gasped in shock.

Lexi & Chrissy: LILLY!!!!!!! SUCH LANGUAGE!!!!!

Lilly: IT’S TRUE THOUGH!!!!! I COULDN’T HOLD BACK AFTER WHAT THEY DID TO CHRIS AND WHAT THEY DID TO US!!!!! WE WERE CRYING OUR EYES OUT NON-STOP BECAUSE THEY ALMOST TOOK CHRIS AWAY FROM US!!!!!!

Lexi: YOU’RE RIGHT LILLY!!!!!! NO ONE MESSES WITH MY BROTHER!!!!

Chrissy: OR MY FUTURE BOY FRIEND!!!!!!

Lilly: THEY’RE GONNA PAY FOR WHAT THEY’VE DONE!!!!!

Wendy & Nina: YEAH!!!!!

Chris: IF THEY THINK I’M SCARED NOW, THEY ARE DEAD WRONG!!!! I HAVE A PLAN, AND I KNOW JUST WHERE TO START!!!!

Chrissy: WOW!!!!!!

Lilly: YOUR BROTHER’S AMAZING!!!!!! YOU ARE ONE LUCKY GIRL LEXI!!!!!

Lexi: I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: IT’S NO WONDER WE’RE IN LOVE WITH HIM!!!!!

Chris: Alright, lets have some fun while we’re at it.

Katie Belle steamed passed a fork in the rails. Chris then got out his gun, shot at the switch, and changed the points before slamming on Katie Belle’s brakes, shutting her throttle, and throwing her Johnson bar forward. Chris then released her brakes, yanked on her throttle, and after much puffing and wheel spin, Katie Belle took off steaming down the switched line.

Chris: Revvin' up the engine
Listen to her howlin' roar
Metal under tension
Beggin' you to touch and go

Mike & Cameron Hurley: REVERSE!!!!!!!!!!! REVERSE!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately one by one all the engines had to slow down to a stop to reverse down the switch track one by one and it took a while for all of them to regain speed.

Chris: HIGHWAY TO THE DANGER ZONE!!!
Gonna take you right into the DANGER ZONE!!!!

Headin' into twilight
Spreadin' out her wings tonight
She got you jumpin' off the deck
And shovin' into overdrive

HIGH WAY TO THE DANGER ZONE!!!!
GONNA TAKE YOU RIGHT INTO THE DANGER ZONE!!!!!!

Just then another set of narrow gauge train tracks magically appear right next to Katie Belle and her train, and a familiar whistle sound is heard.

Chris: THAT IS OUR Q!!!!

Chris then dumped a can full of sand into Katie Belle’s firebox and then Katie Belle started puffing out golden smoke, and all the plant life, trees and lake water lit up like an electrical parade as the familiar whistle was heard again.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: I KNOW WHO THAT IS!!!!!!!!

It was Bob and the San Juan Crimson Dragon!!!!!
Everyone on Katie Belle’s train took one look at the San Juan Crimson Dragon and were in shock and awe at much alike it was to Katie Belle.

EVERYONE: KATIE BELLE?????!!!!!!! SAN JUAN??????!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bob: HAAAAA HAAAAA HAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: Perfect Timing Bob!!!!!!

San Juan: GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN LIL SIS!!!!!

Katie Belle: LIKEWSIE BIG SIS!!!!!!

San Juan: LOVE THE BEAUTIFUL CHROME SILVER DOMES AND CYLINDER JACKETS!!!!! AND THAT BANNER & RIBBON LETTERING IS DARLING!!!!!

Katie Belle: ALL THANKS TO MY OWNER!!!!!!! AND DON’T SELL YOURSELF SHORT, YOU MAYBE OLDER THAN ME BUT YOU’RE STILL AS BEAUTIFUL AS I REMEMBER YOU!!!!

San Juan: AND YOU’RE STILL AS SWEET AS EVER LIL SIS!!!!! AND I LOVE YOUR NEW NAME KATIE BELLE!!!! IT SUITS YOU!!!!

Katie Belle: THANK YOU!!!!! IT’S BEEN TOO LONG BIG SIS!!!!!

Bob: IT SURE HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE YOU 2 HAVE BEEN TOGETHER!!!!

Chris: FROM WHAT BOB TOLD ME, IT’S BEEN ALMOST 80 YEARS!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: WHAT????!!!!!! THAT LONG????!!!!!!

Bob & Chris: YEP!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!! OH MY GOD!!!! THIS IS SO COOL!!!!!!

Lilly: 2 SISTERS REUNITED AFTER A LONG TIME!!!!!

Chris: You girls maybe old in numbers, but cosmetically and personality wise, you’re still as young as Chrissy & Lilly. Heck my car Volvagia is older than you given that she has 166K miles on her odometer. LOL!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: AWWWWWWWWW!!!! THANK YOU!!!! HOW SWEET!!!!!!

San Juan: YOU HAVE SUCH A NICE OWNER!!!!

Katie Belle: AS DO YOU SIS!!!!

Chris: Girls, I’d Hate to ruin this reunion but WE HAVE COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then the Cursed 311 along with Old 27, and the troublesome 0-8-0 tank engine were once again in pursuit of Katie Belle but were in shock and disbelieve when they saw the back of both Crimson Dragons side by side.

Old 27: WHAT????!!!!!

Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine: THERE ARE 2 OF THEM????!!!!!!!

Cursed 311: MIKE AND CAMERON HURLEY ARE NOT GONNA BE HAPPY WHEN THEY FIND OUT THAT THERE ARE 2 CRIMSON DRAGONS!!!!!!!!

Old 27: AND THAT OLD MAN BOB IS STILL ALIVE??????!!!!!!!!!!

Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine: I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! I JUST DON’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!

Bob: READY CHRIS????!!!!!!!!!

Chris: READY BOB!!!!!!!!!!!!

San Juan: READY LIL SIS????!!!!!!

Katie Belle: READY BIG SIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both San Juan and Katie Belle ring their bells as Chris and Bob yank on their whistle chords with a……….

WHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOO-OOOO, WHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Wendy, & Nina: THAT WAS SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!

Juan, Mike, Aaron, & Alex: THOSE ARE THE BEST SOUNDING WHISTLES EVER!!!!!!!!!

Dark Railway Engines: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Old 27: ONE OF THOSE WHISTLES AND BELLS WAS BAD ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!

Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine: NOW WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH 2 OF THEM?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cursed 311: JUST GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

The Dark Railway engines then blew their haunting whistles back, but was no use for they were no match for San Juan’s and Katie Belle’s beautiful Dragon Roars.

Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine: OUR WHISTLES ARE NOT WORKING!!!!

Cursed 311: IT’S LIKE THEY’VE BEEN MUTED!!!!!!

Old 27: THOSE DRAGON ROARS ARE JUST TOO POWERFUL!!!!!!!!

Bob: YOU GUYS LED US INTO A TRAP………

Chris: AND NOW IT’S OUR TURN TO RETURN THE FAVOR!!!!!!

Just then a switch track magically appeared and the Troublesome 0-8-0 tank engine was diverted onto the line behind the San Juan’s train.

Chris: KATIE BELLE AND I HAVE OLD 27 AND THE CURSED 311!!!!!

Bob: GOOD!!!! THAT TROUBLESOME 0-8-0 IS SAN JUAN’S AND MINE!!!!!

Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine: GET BACK HERE!!!!!

Old 27: WE’RE NOT DONE WITH YOU YET!!!!!

Cursed 311: YOU’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!!! NOT WHEN WE CAN HELP IT!!!!!!

The 2 Crimson Dragons then divert and go their separate ways. Katie Belle was headed straight towards the Ashtabula Horror Bridge while the San Juan was heading straight towards the tunnel that crushed her over 50 years ago.

Old 27: YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO 311!!!!

Cursed 311: YES I DO!!!!!

The Cursed 311 then threw his Johnson Bar forward and ran away from Old 27 and Katie Belle while Old 27 turned around on a wye.

Chris: ALRIGHTY KATIE BELLE GET READY!!!!!

Katie Belle: WILL DO MASTER!!!!!

Chris: They never say hello to you
Until you get it on the red line overload
You'll never know what you can do
Until you get it up as high as you can GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then the Ashtabula Horror bridge was in site, while over on Bob and San Juan’s side, the tunnel was just up ahead.

Chris & Bob: OKAY HERE IT IS!!!!

Just then the Cursed 311 was up ahead seen from Katie Belle’s headlamp while Old 27 was catching up with her on the rear. Meanwhile the Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine was getting closer and closer to Bob and San Juan as it chased them into the tunnel.

Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine: YOU’RE NOT GETTING AWAY FROM ME NOW CRIMSON DRAGON!!!!!

Cursed 311: I HAVE YOU NOW CRIMSON DRAGON!!!!!

Old 27: THIS IS THEN END FOR YOU NOW CRIMSON DRAGON!!!!

Katie Belle and her train was then smack dab in the center of the Ashtabula Horror Bridge with the Cursed 311 and Old 27 on the sides of them when Max Lamana and Roy Halim realized the plan.

Max & Roy: OH SHIT!!!! JUMP!!!!!

Max and Roy then jumped out of their cabs, while John Buch also realized the plan, and jumped out of his cab as well.

John: OH SHIT!!!!!

Chris: ALRIGHT KATIE BELLE JUMP NOW!!!!!

Spinning her wheels with all her might, Katie Belle made a huge jump over the Cursed 311 and she and her train landed safely on the other side of the bridge when.

Cursed 311 and Old 27: OH SHIT!!!!! THEY TRICKED US!!!!!!!!

Chris: BINGO!!!!!!

Out along the edge
Is always where I burn to be
The further on the edge
The hotter the intensity

CRASH, BANG, KABOOM, KABLEMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both the Cursed 311 and Old 27 crashed into each other, setting off the bomb, causing the bridge to collapse and both engines plunging down 71 feet into the gorge.

Bob: ALRIGHTY!!!!

Bob then picked up his remote to set of the bomb and multiple cannons started firing off knocking boulders down the sides of the walls and causing the tunnel to collapse just like it did over 50 years ago.

Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine: OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bob: SAN JUAN, TAKE US OUT OF HERE!!!!!

Spinning her wheels with all her might, the San Juan then takes off and speeds out of the collapsing tunnel as fast as her drive wheels could take her until she and her train were safely out of the tunnel when………..

BANG, CRASH, KABOOM, KABLEMO!!!!!!

The entire tunnel collapsed and the Troublesome 0-8-0 Tank Engine was crushed.

Bob & Chris: AWESOME WE DID IT!!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: HIGHWAY TO THE DANGER ZONE
GONNA TAKE YOU RIGHT INTO THE DANGER ZONE
HIGHWAY TO THE DANGER ZONE
RIGHT INTO THE DANGER ZONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then both San Juan and Katie Belle blow their whistles long and hard before taking off into the sky and flying at their own will.
Everyone from the City then took a look up into the sky and could see the 2 beautiful Crimson Dragon sisters flying.

Local: WOW!!!! WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT!!!!!!!

Local: BOTH CRIMSON DRAGONS FLYING!!!!!!!!!

Mike Hurley: IT CAN’T BE!!!!!

Cameron: THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!

Mike & Cameron: THERE ARE 2 OF THEM AND THEY HAVE DESTROYED 3 OF OUR ENGINES!!!!!!!!!!! WE’LL GET YOU FOR THIS CRIMSON DRAGONS!!!!!!!!

Bob: ALRIGHT!!!!!! THAT IS 3 DOWN AND 2 TO GO!!!!!

Chris: YEP, But first we gotta return to down town to drop off my friends. The final battle with the bosses will be too dangerous.

Bob: Got that right, so good call Chris.

Chapter 19

The Final Battle Part 1

Together both Crimson Dragon sisters touch down and landed safely before coming to a full and complete stop.
Everyone then cheered as they ran up to the Crimson Dragon sisters and were in shock and awe to see both sister engines side by side for the first time in almost 80 years.
Volvagia was then unchained before she drove down the ramp, out of the baggage car and back on the road.
Everyone else then disembarked Katie Belle’s train while Lexi and Chrissy ran up to Katie Belle, and glomped Chris to the ground as he climbed out of the cab.

Chris: WHAT THE????  GIRLS!!!!!!

Lexi: THAT WAS REALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: THAT WAS SO COOL; I STILL CAN’T GET OVER HOW WE BEAT THEM!!!!!

Lexi: THAT JUMPED SCARED ME THOUGH……

Chrissy: BUT THE FLYING WAS UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!  DON’T YOU THINK SO LEXI????!!!!

Lexi: YES IT WAS!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: I know but…………

Lexi & Chrissy: BUT WHAT???!!!!!!

Chris: It’s not over.

Lexi: WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT’S NOT OVER?????!!!!!

Chrissy: WE JUST BEAT THE DARK RAILWAY DIDN’T WE?????!!!!!!

Chris: We’ve only defeated 3 of the engines from The Dark Railway!!! 2 Still Remain, and those 2 are the most dangerous ones.  Number #40 and number #93, the ones in charge of the whole destruction.

Lexi & Chrissy: Ooooooohhhhhhhh………………….

Chris: Yep, and this battle will be ugly.

Lexi & Chrissy: WE’RE GOING WITH YOU, NO ANDS IFS OR BUTS!!!!

Chris: NO YOU’RE NOT GIRLS!!!!!   This fight is too dangerous, and I can’t put your lives in anymore danger than I already have.

Lexi: BUT CHRIS, YOU ALMOST DIED ON MY WATCH TWICE AND I CAN’T HAVE IT HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!!!!

Chrissy: AND I CAN’T LOSE YOU EITHER!!!!!  CHRIS I HAVE………..

Lexi: Please say it Chrissy, he needs to know.......

Chrissy: CHRIS I…………..

Lexi: You’ve been hinting this a long time, and you know how dense he is, it’s time he knew the truth…..

Chrissy: CHRIS, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!! THERE I SAID IT, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!  I DON’T KNOW HOW, I DON’T KNOW WHY, BUT I HAVE FALLEN FOR YOU AND I HAVE FALLEN HARD!!!!  I’VE HAD A CRUSH ON YOU FOR A LONG TIME, AND I COULD FEEL LEXI’S PAIN DURING YOUR ACCIDENT BECAUSE OF HOW SHE FEELS FOR YOU!!!!!

Lexi: WE BOTH LOVE YOU VERY MUCH CHRIS!!!!!  YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU!!!! I’VE BEEN IN LOVE WITH YOU SINCE YOU STOLE MY FIRST KISS WHEN I WAS 8!!!!!!  EVER SINCE THEN, IT’S BEEN MY DREAM TO MARRY YOU!!!!! I ONLY DATED BRANDON BECAUSE IT WAS TO KEEP ME BUSY FROM FEELING HEART BROKEN OF NOT BEING CLOSE TO YOU ANYMORE!!! BUT I THEN FELL FOR HIM BECAUSE HE REMINDED ME SO MUCH OF YOU!!!! BUT NOW THAT WE’VE GOT TO KINDA BOND OVER THIS, MY FEELINGS FOR YOU HAVE JUST REIGNITED!!!!!

Chrissy: WE BOTH LOVE YOU WITH ALL OUR HEARTS CHRIS, AND IT HURTS US TO KNOW THAT YOU’RE PUTTING YOURSELF IN DANGER AND LEAVING US OUT OF THE LOOP!!!!!

Tears were forming down both Lexi’s and Chrissy’s face as they went on until they couldn’t hold it back anymore.
Chris then wrapped his arms around them and hugged them tightly.

Chris: Girls, I’m not going anywhere.  I have just 1 more battle to fight, and THAT’S IT!!!!  Baby Sis, you know I took up fencing lessons when I was 13.  You were cheering me on in various matches, and I won every single one of them!!!  I know when it comes to impulsiveness, I’m a wreck, but when it comes to a 1 on 1 battle, I can handle myself.

Lexi: You’re right Chris.  I had just become a cheerleader at age 5, and when I was 6 is when it became REALLY competitive, and on the side I was your own personal cheerleader at every fencing match.  You never lost a single match.  You always knew to stand your ground.

Chrissy: And Chris, more than anything, I want to be your girlfriend.  I promise to love and care for you.  I have fun with you, we have so much in common, and you are nothing but the sweetest boy to Lexi, and you take Lilly’s teasing well.  How can I not love you.

Chris: And this is why I can’t have you girls at this fight.  As much as I want to have you on the sides as my own personal cheerleaders, I CAN’T!!!!  It pains me to make you stay out of it, but it would hurt me even more if something were to happen to either of you.  I promised Mom and Dad that I would take good care of you when you were a baby Lexi; heck to me you still are a baby Lexi.  And you’re a very needy girl.  And Chrissy, you and I just met, but it feels like we’ve known each other a lifetime.  You’ve been nothing but supportive of me, and you’ve even stood up for me when I was in a jam.  I can’t thank you enough.
You girls are everything to me, and I love you 2 so very much.  I LOVE YOU GIRLS WITH ALL MY HEART AND MORE THAN ANYTHING!!!!  IF I LOST YOU, I’D SHOOT MYSELF!!!!  That’s why I have to go into battle alone.

Both Lexi and Chrissy looked at each other before wrapping their arms around Chris and hugging him tightly.

Lexi & Chrissy: WE LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH CHRIS!!!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH THAT IT HURTS!!!!!!

Chris: Same here girls!!!!

Chris then climbed up Katie Belle’s ladder, opened up her tool box on her tender, and then climbed back down before handing Lexi and Chrissy beautifully made tiaras.

Chris: After I restored Katie Belle from the accident, I made these 2 just for you.   So everyone can see the princesses you girls really are.  I forged them out of brass, chrome, and bronze.  While the emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and diamonds were spare jewels lying around in the palace treasure that the butler offered.

Lexi and Chrissy then cried even harder after being handed the tiaras.

Lexi: CHRIS THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Chrissy: THIS IS THE SWEETEST THING YOU’VE EVER DONE FOR US!!!

Chris: But they’re nowhere near as beautiful as you girls and your smiling faces.  And Lexi you always brightened my day.  Even when we were distant, seeing your smile helped me through the toughest times.  Chrissy, yours is very beautiful too, and it’s your smiling face that I want to see when we go out on our first date, watch Disneyland’s fireworks together, and experience more happy times together.  
And your smiling faces are the reasons why I know I’m gonna beat the tar out of Mike & Cameron Hurley.  Those guys don’t stand a chance as long as your smiling faces remain in my heart.

Lexi and Chrissy then gently stroked Chris on the face before each taking a turn gently kissing him on the lips.

Lexi & Chrissy: We love you Chris, so very much, so please promise us that you’ll come back alive.

Chris: I promise.

Lexi: If you don’t I’ll eat quiche and fart on your face!!!!

Chrissy: And I’ll hate you forever!!!!

Chris:  WAAAHHHHHT!!!!! I don’t want that to happen, so I’ll definitely win. LOL!!!!

Lexi: *GIGGLES* I KNOW THAT ALWAYS WORKS!!!!

Chris: As does this.

Chris then lifts up both Chrissy’s and Lexi’s cheerleading skirts, gropes them on their bottoms and feels their panties underneath, causing them to freak out.

Lexi & Chrissy: *SCREAMS & FREAKS OUT*  AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! CHRIS!!!!! YOU PERVERT!!!!! NOW WE CAN NEVER GET MARRIED!!!!!!

Chris: LOL!!!! SEE WHAT I MEAN!!!! LOL!!!!!

Lexi: *GIGGLES* Then again, why should it matter?

Chrissy: Yeah, we are gonna be marrying you after all. *GIGGLES*

Lexi: And does this mean I still have to remain a virgin until age 21 even though you're the one whose gonna be taking my virginity?

Chris: Okay girls, lets not jump the gun on that yet. LOL!!!  But I promise to come back safely.

Chris then gently kisses Lexi and Chrissy on the cheeks and again on the forehead and they kiss him back.

Lexi: All that matters is that you come back safely.

Chrissy: And when you come back, we’ll make out.

Chris: That sounds good to me.  And while I’m at it……….. ALEX, come over here!!!

Alex: Yes Chris, what’s up?

Chris: Promise me you’ll take care of Lexi while I’m away.

Alex: You have my word Chris!!!

Chris: Awesome!!!!  And Lexi, he’s a really great guy, so you may wanna get to know him and see.

Lexi: I know, and I really like him, but you still have my heart.

Chris: Doesn’t hurt to have another guy friend.

Lexi: True, so I’ll gladly get to know him and see how our friendship goes.

Chris: That’s a good girl.

Lexi and Chrissy then put on their tiaras.

Chris: You girls are very beautiful, and with those you look like real princesses.

Lexi & Chrissy: AWWWWWWW!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Lexi and Chrissy then kiss Chris on the cheek before Chris climbs into Katie Belle’s cab.

Chris: I’ll be back as soon as I can.

Lexi: Please hurry back big brother.

Chrissy: I Wanna us going out to be official!!!!

Chris: It will!!!! Once I return, I’m taking you out on a date Chrissy.  And Lexi, since you’ve always wanted to go to England after hearing about my various trips there, I’ll buck us a special trip there next spring for just you and me.

Lexi: REALLY????!!!!!

Chris: YEP!!!!  We’ll go to Dartmouth, ride the famous steam railway, then we’ll go to Wells, Bath, visit Stonehenge, stay in beautiful Manors, along with the beautiful Chesterfield, ride the Blue Belle Railway, visit Westminster Abbey along with many other cathedrals, ride The London Underground, go to The British Museum, and a whole lot more.

Lexi: OH MY GOD!!!!! I SO CAN’T WAIT!!!!

Chris: And we’ll fly first class on a British Airways Airbus A380!!!!!

Lexi: I AM SO EXCITED!!!! I FINALLY GET THE VACATION WITH YOU THAT I ALWAYS WANTED!!!!

Chris: And Chrissy, our first date will be at Disneyland, and I will have them roll out the red carpet just for you.

Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!!! THAT SOUNDS AMAZING!!!! I’M THE LUCKIEST GIRL TO HAVE SUCH A WONDERFUL BOYFRIEND!!!!!!!

Chris: You’re growing up into a fine young lady, and you’ve become so beautiful Lexi.

Chris then kissed Lexi on the forehead as a few more tears poured down her face.

Lexi: Chris, you’re so sweet, and I love you so much.

Chris: Chrissy, you’re a wonderful girl, and an even more amazing best friend.  Therefor there’s no one else I’d rather have than a girlfriend than you.

Chris then kisses Chrissy on the forehead as more tears pour down her face.

Chrissy: And I’m so glad to have you as my boyfriend Chris.  You have no idea how happy this makes me feel.

Bob: ALRIGHTY CHRIS!!!! READY?????!!!!!!!

Chris: READY!!!!!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly then run up to all the girls from the cheerleading squad and begin cheering as Chris and Bob set on their way.

Lexi, Chrissy & Lilly: 1, 2, 3, 4!!!!!!!!

Cheerleaders: 5, 6, 7, 8!!!!!!!!

Chris: THAT IS OUR SIGNAL!!!!

Chris & Bob: HIGH BALL!!!!!!!

Chris and Bob then yank on San Juan’s and Katie Belle’s whistle chords and give 3 blasts on the whistles before releasing the brakes, throwing the Johnson Bars into reverse, and easing the throttles open, and together the 2 Crimson Dragon sisters were rolling.

Lexi, Chrissy, & Lilly: COME ON GUYS KICK THEIR ASS!!!!!

Cheerleaders: FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!!!! CRIMSON DRAGONS YOU GOT!!!!! HEY, HEY, HEY!!!!!

Chris: WE GOTTA RESPOND TO THAT!!!!

Bob: THAT WE DO!!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle rang their bells as Bob and Chris tugged on the whistle chords and gave the 4 whistle grade crossing blast with a………..

WHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOOOO, WHOOOO-OOOOOO, WHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bob and Chris then dumped sand into the fireboxes and both Crimson Dragons steamed off in clouds of beautiful golden smoke.

Lexi: YOU CAN DO IT CHRIS!!!!!

Chrissy: I BELIEVE IN YOU CHRIS!!!!!!

Lilly: I LOVE YOU CHRIS!!!!!!

Mike YOU THE MAN CHRIS!!!!

Aaron: GO KNOCK THEM DEAD CHRIS!!!!!

Alex: SHOW THEM WHO IS BOSS CHRIS!!!!!!

Juan: KNOCK THOSE GUYS INTO HELL CHRIS!!!!!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: WE KNOW YOU CAN DO IT CHRIS!!!!!!!!

Everyone: AND YOU GO; CRIMSON DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Crimson Dragon sisters then respond with the 4 whistle grade crossing blast before completely disappearing into the night.

Lexi and Chrissy then hold hands as they watch the shining headlamps disappear.

Lexi: Please come back alive Chris……….

Chrissy: Your poor sister can’t have her heart broken again and neither can I.

Alex then held Lexi’s hand and comforted her as best as he could.

Alex: Don’t worry Lexi; he will make it back.

Juan: Knowing Chris, he’ll be just fine.

Aaron: He learned his lesson after the accident, so he’ll be just fine.

Mike: No doubt in my mind!!!

Lilly: I believe in him, and I know he’s gonna make it.

Wendy & Nina: If he can wipe out those other meanings so quickly, then he’ll take out these guys without a sweat.

Lexi & Chrissy: You’re right!!!

Lexi: I believe in him more than anyone.

Chrissy: As do I Lexi.

Lexi & Chrissy: WE KNOW YOU CAN DEFEAT THEM AND KICK THEIR ASS!!!!!!

Chapter 20

The Final Battle Part 2

Bob: Chris, are you ready for this?

Chris: I was born ready!!!

San Juan: You have become so strong Lil Sis.

Katie Belle: All thanks to Chris. ☺

Bob: Alright girls, ARE YOU READY???!!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: YES WE ARE!!!!!

Chris: AWESOME!!!!!

Bob & Chris: LETS TAKE THEM DOWN!!!!!

Together, both Crimson Dragon sisters steam along the railroad line until they see 2 headlights shining in the front of them.

Bob: THAT WILL BE NUMBER #40 AND NUMBER #93!!!

Chris: ALONG WITH MIKE AND CAMERON HURLEY!!!!

They were right because sure enough, locomotives number #40 and number #93 were steaming straight towards San Juan and Katie Belle while ringing their bells.
San Juan and Katie Belle also began ringing their bells as both sets of locomotives were slowing down to a full and complete stop.
Chris and Bob along with Mike and Cameron Hurley climb out of their cabs and walk up to one another.

Mike Hurley: YOU!!!!!

Bob: YOU!!!!!

Cameron: YOU!!!!!

Chris: YOU!!!!!

Number #93: YOU!!!!

San Juan: YOU!!!!!!

Number #40: YOU!!!!!

Katie Belle: YOU!!!!!

Mike & Cameron Hurley, Number #40 and Number #93: YOU HUMILIATE US OVER 50 YEARS AGO AND NOW YOU HUMILIATE US AGAIN!!!! AND TO TOP IT OFF, YOU’VE KILLED THREE OF OUR COLLEGUES!!!!!

Bob, Chris, San Juan, and Katie Belle: YOU’RE ONES TO TALK!!!!! YOU TRY TO DESTROY US BY CRUSHING US IN A TUNNEL, AND DROPPING US 71 FEET DOWN A GORGE!!!! WE THEN HAVE A TOUGH RECOVERY AND MAKE THOSE WHO LOVE AND CARE ABOUT US WORRY!!!!

Chris: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING YOU PUT MY POOR BABY SISTER, LEXI THOUGH????!!!!!! SHE AND MY GIRLFRIEND CHRISSY, AND HER LITTLE SISTER LILLY, WERE CRYING NON-STOP BECAUSE OF YOUR LAST STUNT!!!!

Bob: HECK, I NEVER HEARD THE END OF IT FROM MY GIRLFRIEND AND BECAUSE OF IT, I WAS KEPT ON A LEASH FOR A LONG TIME!!!!

SAN JUAN & KATIE BELLE: TO TOP IT OFF, CHRIS AND BOB WORK LIKE CRAZY FOR 7 DAYS STRAIGHT AROUND THE CLOCK RESTORING US WHILE STILL SEVERLY INJURED!!!! HECK, THEIR LOVED ONES WORRIED EVEN MORE AND THEY DIDN’T EVEN GET A WINK OF SLEEP!!!!

Chris: HECK THESE STITCHES AND DRAINS IN MY CHEST ARE STILL DRIVING ME NUTS!!!!!

Katie Belle: AND I CAN STILL FEEL THE EXCURIATING PAIN FROM HAVING MY FRAME TWISTED AFTER THE WRECK!!!! LUCKILY CHRIS IS A GOOD MECHANIC AND FIXED IT!!!! IF IT WASN’T FOR HIM I’D BE SCRAPPED!!!!

San Juan: SAME HERE IF IT WASN’T FOR BOB AFTER I WAS CRUSHED TO DEATH IN THE TUNNEL!!!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: BUT IF ANYTHING GOOD CAME OUT OF IT, WE HAVE MUCH LARGER FIREBOXES AND ARE A HELL OF A LOT MORE POWERFUL!!!! AND WE’RE CERTAINLY POWERFUL ENOUGH TO DESTROY YOU ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!!

Mike Hurley: YOU GUYS THINK YOU CAN DEFEAT ME SO EASILY?????!!!!!!!! WELL YOUR DEAD WRONG!!!!!!!

Cameron: AND AS IF I CAN CARE LESS ABOUT HOW YOUR SISTER FELT ABOUT LOSING YOU!!!! WITH YOU GONE, I’D FIND A WAY TO MAKE HER MINE AND FORGET ALL ABOUT HER!!!!! AND THE FACT THAT SHE’S A VIRGIN MAKES HER EVEN MORE DESIRABLE!!!!!

Chris: TOUCH ONE HAIR ON MY LITTLE SISTERS HEAD, AND YOU ARE USDA TOWARDS DEAD MEAT!!!!!!

Number #93: YOU TINY LITTLE GIRLS DON’T STAND A CHANCE AGAINST US!!!!!

Number #40: WE’RE SUPERHEATED AND HAVE MORE THAN THREE TIMES THE TRACTIVE EFFORT THAT YOU HAVE!!!!!!

San Juan: TINY LITTLE GIRLS????!!!!!!! I’M ALMOST 120 YEARS OLD AND MY SISTER IS 111 YEARS OLD!!!!

Katie Belle: AND TRACTIVE EFFORT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING AS LONG AS YOU’VE GOT HEART!!!!!!!

Bob: I’VE KICKED YOUR ASS ONCE MIKE, AND I CAN KICK IT AGAIN!!!!!

Chris: I’M WARNING YOU CAMERON!!!!!!!

Mike Hurley: OOOOOOO, I’M SOOOOO SCARED!!!!!!

Cameron: THANKS FOR THE WARNING!!!!!

Chris, Bob, Mike, and Cameron drew out their swords and charged at each other while San Juan and Katie Belle turned up their fires and took off in reverse.

San Juan & Katie Belle: CATCH US IF YOU CAN!!!!!!

Number #93 and Number #40: OH WE WILL!!!!! YOU AREN’T GETTING AWAY THAT EASILY!!!!!!

Chris & Bob: CHARGE!!!!!!!!!!

The swords between Bob and Mike along with Chris and Cameron collided and the final battle was on.
Katie Belle and San Juan were steaming off as fast as they could while Numbers #93 and #40 were pursuing them.

San Juan: OKAY LIL SIS, DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS????!!!!

Katie Belle: NOT A CLUE!!!!! WITH CHRIS AND BOB FIGHTING OFF THE ENGINEERS WE’VE NOW GOTTA FIGHT THE DARK RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVES OURSELVES!!!!!!

San Juan: WHY DON’T WE FLY???!!!!!!

Katie Belle: THAT IS A THOUGHT, BUT WE CAN’T BUILD THE HEAT WITHOUT CHRIS AND BOB SANDING OUT OUR TUBES!!!!!

San Juan: DANG IT!!!!!!

Katie Belle: BUT I THINK IF WE TRY, WE CAN JUMP!!!!!

San Juan: OKAY!!!!! THERE’S A HILLSIDE BANK JUST A MILE AND ½ AWAY!!!!!

Katie Belle: THAT’S A PLAN!!!!! KEEP GOING UNTIL WE’RE HALF A MILE AWAY, THAT WAY THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH ROOM AND RAM INTO THE SIDE OF THE HILL???!!!!

San Juan: YES!!!! THAT’S THE PLAN!!!!!

Katie Belle: AWESOME!!!!!

San Juan and Katie Belle continue steaming down the line until they slam on their brakes, shut their throttles, and throw their Johnson bars forward. They then release their brakes, ram open their throttles, and take off.

Number #40 and Number #93 are in shock and dismay when they see the Crimson Dragon sisters heading straight towards them on full heads of steam.

Number #40: WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!

Number #93: ARE THEY INSANE??????!!!!!!!! WHY ARE THEY STEAMING STRAIGHT TOWARDS US!!!!!!!

Katie Belle: READY FOR THIS SIS???!!!!!

San Juan: READY!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle: ON THE COUNT OF 3, WE’LL JUMP!!!!

San Juan: GOT IT!!!!

Katie Belle: OKAY, READY WHEN YOU ARE!!!!!!

San Juan: 1…………

Katie Belle: 2…………

San Juan & Katie Belle: 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spinning their wheels with all their might, San Juan and Katie Belle take off into the sky and make a massive jump over Number #93 and Number #40.

Number #93: WHAT THE HELL????!!!!!!!!!!!

Number #40: WHAT THE FUCK??????!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle and San Juan then gently touch down on the tracks and make a safe landing.
Numbers #93 and #40 were in far too much shock that they didn’t know about the hillside dead ahead of them until it was too late.

Number #93 and Number #40: OH SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Numbers #93 and #40 slam on their brakes and thrown themselves into reverse but it was no use for their heavy weight and moment were too much for the 2 engines to escape their fate.

Number #93 & Number #40: REVERSE!!!! REVERSE GOD DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!

But it was useless, and both engines end up slamming into the side of the hill and end up destroying their front cowcatchers.
Both Dark Railway Engines were now humiliated and red faced angry after being tricked.

Number #93: FOOLED BY 2 LITTLE GIRLS!!!!!!!!

Number #40: THEY GOT US GOOD!!!!!

Number #93: BUT IT’S NOT OVER YET!!!!

Number #40: THOSE BITCHES ARE GONNA PAY!!!!!!!

Number #93 and Number #40 then open their throttles as wide as they could, and take off in reverse in attempt to catch up to the Crimson Dragon sisters. Meanwhile, Katie Belle suddenly sees a mountain with multiple up and down hill turns, drops stops, and bizarre curves off in the distance.

Katie Belle: TAKE A LOOK AT THAT MOUNTAIN RIGHT THERE!!!!

San Juan: WHAT???!!!!! THAT IS BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN!!!!!!!!!! ONLY SMALL MINING TRAINS GO THERE!!!!

Katie Belle: BUT WE’RE JUST SMALL ENOUGH TO HANDLE IT!!!!!

San Juan: BUT ARE YOU CRAZY, WE MIGHT FALL OFF!!!!

Katie: NOTE THAT WE CAN JUMP IF NEEDED!!!!!!

San Juan: GOOD POINT AND IT’S CERTAINLY ENOUGH TO TAKE ON THE DARK RAILWAY ENGINES, SO AFTER YOU!!!!!

Katie Belle then switches onto San Juan’s line and the 2 engines take off for Big Thunder Mountain.
Meanwhile, the 2 banged up Dark Railway engines then spot the Crimson Dragon sisters heading straight towards Big Thunder Mountain.

Number #40: UH-OH!!!!!! IS THAT WHAT I THINK IT IS????!!!!!!

Number #93: YES, IT’S BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN!!!!!

Number #40: WE CAN’T GO THERE; WE’RE TOO BIG!!!!! ONLY TINY MINING ENGINES ARE CRAZY ENOUGH TO TACKLE THAT MOUNTAIN!!!!

Number #93: STILL, THAT DOESN’T MEAN WE MUST STOP OUR PURSUIT!!!! WE’RE GOING TO BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN AND GET THOSE BITCHES BACK FOR DESTROYING OUR PILOTS!!!!!

Meanwhile, the sword fighting went on and on and on. No one was giving an inch on either side. The fight was getting so intense, that no one was paying attention to the fact that they were backing themselves over to Big Thunder Mountain.
The battle just grew more and more intense as the fight got nearer and nearer to Big Thunder Mountain.

Mike Hurley: NOT BAD FOR OLD MAN!!!!

Bob: YOU’RE NOT TO BAD YOURSELF!!!!!

Cameron: I’M SURPRISED THAT YOU CAN KEEP UP DESPITE YOUR INJURIES LOSER!!!!

Chris: I MAY BE BATTERED BUT I’M NOT FEABLE!!!!

Meanwhile, San Juan and Katie Belle entered a tunnel deep in the mine shafts of Big Thunder Mountain, and soon entered a cave full of bats.

Katie Belle: OKAY, I HATE BATS!!!!

San Juan: THEY WERE A PAIN TO DEAL WITH ON THE DENVER SOUTH PARK!!!!!

Number #93: GET BACK HERE BITCHES!!!!

Number #40: WE’LL STILL GET YOU FOR THAT LAST STUNT YOU PULLED!!!!

Both Number #93 and Number #40 follow San Juan and Katie Belle into the mine shaft tunnels, and through the bat caves before climbing up a steep incline that ran under a waterfall.

San Juan: GET READY KATIE BELLE!!!! WE’LL BE GETTING A LOT OF WATER IN OUR SMOKE STACKS!!!

Katie Belle: NO PROBLEM!!! WE’LL GET OUR MASTERS TO SAND OUT OUR TUBES AND POLISH US AFTER THIS!!!!

Both San Juan and Katie Belle then huffed and puffed up the incline before chugging through the waterfall before popping out of the tunnel and high-ball down a slope like a roller coaster.

San Juan: HOLD ON TO THE TRACK!!!!

Katie Belle: WILL DO!!!!

Number #93 and Number #40 then struggle up the incline but were not prepared for ingesting water in their smoke stacks.

Number #93: OKAY!!! THAT DOES IT!!!!

Number #40: NO ONE PUTS WATER DOWN OUR SMOKE STACKS AND GETS AWAY WITH IT!!!!

Number #93 and Number #40 then chase the Crimson Dragon Sisters down the track through the ups and downs, tight turns, sudden drops and stops of the railroad lines, only to torque their frames, derail their pilot trucks, bonk their smoke stacks, and lost their whistles and headlamps.

Numbers #93 & #40: THAT’S IT!!!!!! YOU BITCHES GET BACK HERE!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: NO WAY!!!! YOU HAVE TO CATCH US FIRST!!!!!!

Both San Juan and Katie Belle then climb up another steep incline near a mine winch that was home to snapping tortoises, Eastern Diamond Back Rattle Snakes, a goat holding dynamite, and multiple skunks ready to spray.

San Juan & Katie Belle: OKAY THERE IS NO WAY WE’RE GETTING SPRAYED BY SKUNKS OR BLOWN UP BY A GOAT!!!!!

Both San Juan and Katie Belle took off on the other side of the Mine Winch and whipped around tight bends, and up and down the multiple drops and stops.
Number #93 and Number #40 weren’t so lucky to get away, for multiple tortoises were snapping at them and bit their wheel spokes while Rattle Snakes struck at their piping and caused external steam passages to rupture.

Number #93: OUCH!!!!!!! OOOOWWWW!!!!!!!!!!

Number #40: MY BEAUTIFUL WHEEL SPOKES AND STEAM PIPES!!!!!!!!

Numbers #40 and #93 then got blown up by the goat who dropped the dynamite destroying the wood in their cabs, running boards, and tenders before being sprayed to death by the skunks!!!!

Numbers #40 and #93: WHAT THE FUCK????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike and Cameron Hurley however were not happy with what was happening to their engines.

Mike Hurley: WHAT THE FUCK?????!!!!!!!

Cameron: YOUR STUPID TOY TRAINS ARE TURNING OUR BEAUTIFUL ENGINES INTO MINTS MEAT!!!!!!

Bob: THAT IS PAYBACK FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO OUR ENGINES!!!!

Chris: NOW YOU KNOW HOW BOB AND I FELT WHEN YOUR DARK RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVES ALMOST DESTROYED OUR BELOVED CRIMSON DRAGON MASON BOGIES!!!!

Bob: YOU TREAT YOUR ENGINES BADLY, AND THEY END UP BEING AS EVIL AS YOU!!!!

Chris: YOU’RE LUCKY YOUR ENGINES HAVEN’T TURNED ON YOU!!!! BOB AND I ON THE OTHER HAND, LOVE AND ADORE OUR MASON BOGIES!!!! WE TREAT THEM WITH EVERY BIT OF TLC WE CAN!!!!

Bob: THESE STEAM ENGINES ARE NOT SOME OBJECTS THAT YOU CAN JUST PUSH AROUND LIKE SLAVES!!!!!

Chris: STEAM LOCOMOTIVES MAYBE MACHINES, BUT THEY HAVE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS JUST LIKE US PEOPLE AND ANIMALS ALIKE!!!! AND THEY DESERVE LOVE AND RESPECT JUST LIKE SOMEONE WHO WAS CLOSE TO YOU!!!!

Bob: BUT WHAT DO YOU DO???!!!! TREAT YOUR ENGINES LIKE SLAVES, HAVE THEM DO YOUR DIRTY WORK, AND EXPECT THEM TO THINK AND ACT LIKE YOU!!!!

Chris: THE SAME REASON WHY A LOT OF PITBULLS BECOME VICIOUS KILLERS IS BECAUSE OF THEIR OWNERS MISTREATING THEM, AND THAT’S THE SAME REASON WHY YOUR ENGINES HAVE BECOME EVIL!!!! YOU HAVE PUSHED THEM TO THEIR BREAKING POINTS AND NOW THEY HAVE LOST ALL SANITY, NOT REALIZING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN CONTROLING THEM!!!!

Mike Hurley: SO WHAT??!!!! YES IT WAS MY UNCLE WHO WORKED ON THE 0-8-0 SADDLE TANK AND TURNED IT INTO A CRAZY SWITCHER, AND YES IT WAS MY GRANDPA WHO WRECKED OLD 27 IN A STORMY NIGHT!!!! ALSO CURSED 311’S ACCIDENT WAS DONE BY MY BROTHER, WHILE MY DAD AND UNCLE CRASHED BOTH THE 40 AND 93 DECADES AGO!!!!! AND WHAT HAPPENED, I CREATED THE DARK RAILWAY, AND THE ENGINES HAVE FOLLOWED ME FROM THEN ONWARDS!!! IT’S LIKE I WAS THEIR LEADER FROM THE GETGO, AND I ALWAYS WILL BE!!!!

Cameron: AS FOR ME, WHEN I AM THROUGH WITH YOU, I WILL HAPPILY TAKE THE VIRGINITY OF THAT ADORABLE LITTLE SISTER OF YOURS, AND MAKE OFF WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND CHRISSY!!!!! I WILL ALSO HAVE THOSE LITTLE CUTIEST WENDY, NINA, AND LILLY AS MY PERSONAL SLAVES!!!! BUT DON’T WORRY, THEY WILL LIVE COMFORTABLY IN RETURN FOR THEIR SERVICES!!!!

Chris: YOU GUYS ARE SICK AND NEED SERIOUS HELP!!!!!

Bob: Unfortunately Chris, their beyond the point of being able to get help. They can’t be saved. The Hurley Curse has gotten to them, and destroying them is our only option to put an end to it.

Chris: Sad but true. We have no choice but to take them out. AND IF YOU GUYS LAY A HANG ON A SINGLE HAIR ON MY LITTLE SISTER’S HEAD, YOU WILL PAY!!!!! MY BABY SISTER HAS BEEN INNOCENT FOR A REASON!!!! SHE IS VERY PURE HEARTED AND IS THE KINDEST AND SWEETEST GIRL YOU COULD EVER COME ACROSS!!!! I KNOW SHE CAN BE A BRAT, FARTS A LOT, IS VERY NEEDY, SHORT TEMPERED, OVERLY GIRLY, EXTREMELY PREPPY, AND SOMETIMES OVERREACTS, BUT SHE IS WAY OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE CAMERON!!!!! SHE IS MY SISTER, I AM IN LOVE WITH HER, AND WON’T LET ANYONE TOUCH HER!!!! ESPECIALLY NOT YOU MR.CAMERON HURLEY!!!!!! I WILL PROTECT FROM THE LIKES OF YOU EVEN IF IT COSTS ME MY LIFE!!!!!
AND YOU WON’T LAY A HAND ON MY GIRLFRIEND CHRISSY EITHER!!!! SHE AND I SHARE A SPECIAL BOND THAT YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND!!!! THE REASON WHY WE ARE A COUPLE IS BECAUSE WE’RE IN LOVE, WE UNDERSTAND AND CARE FOR EACH OTHER!!!! NOT OVER MONEY, POWER AND EGO!!!! AND ITS GUYS LIKE YOU THAT SHE HATES SO MUCH!!!!!

Cameron: YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cameron then ran over and struck Chris right in the side with his sword, leaving Chris to bleed profusely with a nasty gouge on his right side.

Chris: AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bob: CHRIS!!!!!!!! YOU DARE DO THAT TO HIM????!!!!!! YOU DIE!!!!!!

Mike Hurley: NO NO, YOU DON’T!!!!! YOU MUST GET THROUGH ME FIRST BEFORE YOU LAY A HAND ON MY GRANDSON!!!!

Bob and Mike Hurley continue to clash swords as do Cameron and Chris while numbers #93 and #40 continue getting bagged up going through the various tunnels, sudden drops, stops, and tight bends.
San Juan and Katie Belle then climb the final steep incline through leading through a mine shaft loaded with dynamite and cannons. Multiple cannons fired off at San Juan and Katie Belle as they climbed the last hill, but thankfully for their small size, the 2 Crimson Dragon sisters were not hit.

San Juan: WOW!!!! THIS IS CRAZY!!!!!

Katie Belle: I KNOW!!!! BUT THIS WILL BE SURE TO SLOW THEM DOWN!!!

Meanwhile Cameron backed Chris into a corner as Chris loses blood from his right side fast. Chris’s vision becomes blurry just as it did on the night of the fateful accident.

Cameron: THIS IS THE END OF THE LINE FOR YOU, LITTLE MAN!!!! BUT DON’T WORRY, I’LL BONE YOUR SISTER AND GIRLFRIEND REAL GOOD!!!!!!

Just as Chris was about to lose consciousness, memories of his little sister popped into his head. From the day she was born and when he first held her in his arms, to the times the 2 played with dolls and had tea parties, to the gymnastics completion where the 2 had their first kiss, to seeing her tears after he barely survived the avalanche accident in Scandinavia, to seeing her smiling face at her multiple cheerleading competitions, to the night she rode in Katie Belle’s cab, and to his promise he made to her that he’d come back alive after the fight. All the memories came flying back and hit him like a train at full steam as Katie Belle’s and San Juan’s whistles blew loudly.
Chris then snapped out of it, and roared back into action as if his energy multiplied by 100.

Chris: YOU WILL NOT LAY A FINGER ON HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris then jumped up, performed a sword spin attack and killed Cameron in one blow.

Chris: Anyone who thinks they can have my baby sister so easily is dead wrong. I admit that I’m in love with her, and will protect her with my life. Even if it means protecting her from bastards like you. And if you think you can have my girlfriend Chrissy as well? You’re dead wrong on that for she is not a toy to be played with like you state!!! Chrissy has been through far too much for you to understand, and she hates guys like you most of all, as do I.
GO FUCK YOURSELF AND WROUGHT IN HELL!!!!!

Chris then grabbed Cameron’s sword as Mike Hurley was yelling in anger.

Mike Hurley: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! YOU MURDERED MY GRANDSON YOU BASTARD!!!!!! NOW YOU DIE!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike Hurley then took off running after Chris in full rage as Chris charged towards Mike while Bob chased after him.
Meanwhile both San Juan and Katie Belle barely escape the dynamite Mineshaft as Numbers #40 and #93 enter and get blasted to bits inside.
Together both the 40 and 93 end up sheering connecting rods, drive axles, and rupture various steam pipes as the mineshaft cannons continue to blast them.

Number #93: THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!!!!!!

Number #40: AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

Number #93: THE DARK RAILWAY DEFEATED BY SUCH LITTLE GIRLS!!!!!!

Number: #40: THE CRIMSON DRAGONS??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Number #93 and Number #40: HOW CAN THOSE LITTLE TOY TRAIN GIRL ENGINES DEFEAT THE GREAT DARK RAILWAY??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then the goat from earlier comes back with more dynamite and drops it down the mine shaft when………….

Mike Hurley: YOU DIE NOW YOU BASTARD!!!!!!

Chris & Bob: THE ONLY ONE WHO IS DYING TODAY IS THE DARK RAILWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Both Bob and Chris strike Mike Hurley with all swords and slice him in half when…………………

BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KABLEMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The mineshaft exploded causing both Dark Railway locomotives’ boilers to explode and enhance the destruction. The forces from the explosions were so powerful that it caused Big Thunder Mountain to begin collapsing.

Bob: CHRIS!!!!!! WE GOTTA GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!!!!!!

Chris: NOT A MOMENT TO LOSE!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then 2 familiar whistles and bells were heard, and sure enough, it was San Jaun and Katie Belle.

Chris: GIRLS!!!! YOU’RE OKAY!!!!!!

San Juan: OF COURSE!!!!!

Katie Belle: THOSE DARK RAILWAY ENGINES WERE NO MATCH FOR US!!!!!

San Juan: GREAT THINKING ON YOUR PART IN BRINGING THEM HERE LIL SIS!!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: GIRL POWER!!!!!!

Just then both San Juan and Katie Belle noticed that Chris was bleed VERY badly from his right side.

Katie Belle: OH MY GOD!!!!!! CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: DON’T WORRY, KATIE BELLE!!!!! WE MUST GET OUT OF HERE!!!!!!!!!

Chris and Bob then climbed up into San Juan’s and Katie Belle’s cabs, rammed their throttles wide open, and after much wheel slip, both Crimson Dragon engines took off away from the collapsing mountain.
Katie Belle however grew more worried at Chris’s massive gouge.

Katie Belle: CHRIS, THAT IS A REALLY NASTY SLASH ON YOUR SIDE!!!! IF LEXI SAW THAT………..

Chris: I have this under control.

Chris then got out a medical needle and thread and slowly but surely, he managed to stitch his nasty gouge shut with 10 stitches, before placing a bandage over the wound, and wrapping his stomach up with gauze. Sure enough, the bleeding stopped.

Katie Belle: Be sure to drink a lot of water sweetie because you look VERY pale, and you lost WAY too much blood.

Chris: Will do. I’m still feeling very cold and light headed, but I’ll be fine.

Katie Belle: I know you will.

Chris then climbed onto Katie Belle’s tender tank, opened up her tool box, opened up a cooler box, got out some bottled water and coco-cola, and began drinking like crazy.

Just then……………….

BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KABLEMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Big Thunder Mountain came crashing down and crushing everything in its path. The crashing sounds were so loud and so powerful that they could even be heard from the city where everyone was waiting.
The crashing sounds however, put both Lexi and Chrissy in a huge panic.

Lexi & Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!!! CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris and Bob looked back as they saw Big Thunder Mountain crash down to the ground and were in shock and awe at the powerful impact.

Chris & Bob: HOLY SHIT!!!!

San Juan & Katie Belle: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!

Just then Aleasha appeared on a massive t.v. screen in the downtown areas of the city.

Aleasha: THE DARK RAILWAY HAS BEEN DESTROYED!!!!! THE DARK RAILWAY HAS BEEN DESTROYED!!!!!!!!!!!

Aleasha then showed a video of Big Thunder Mountain crashing down and crushing everything including the destroyed Dark Railway locomotives and the dead bodies of Mike and Cameron Hurley.
She then showed a video of the 2 Crimson Dragon sisters steaming along the railway line with Chris and Bob safely in their cabs heading back home.

Aleasha: I REPEAT THE DARK RAILWAY HAS BEEN DESTROYED AND IS GONE FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Together both Bob and Chris yank on San Juan’s and Katie Belle’s whistle chords with the beautiful 4 whistle grade crossing with a…………….

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And together Bob and Chris along with the 2 Crimson Dragon sisters were on their way home.

Chapter 21

VICTORY CELEBRATION!!!!

Chris and Bob then dumped small cans of sand into San Juan’s and Katie Belle’s fireboxes and sure enough gold smoke came pouring out of their smoke stacks, and everything around them lit up like an electrical parade.

Bob: Lets give everyone a show!!!

Chris: Good plan!!! We did just destroy the Dark Railway for good, so it’s time to celebrate and put on a show.

Together both Bob and Chris yank on San Juan’s and Katie Belle’s whistle chords with the beautiful 4 whistle grade crossing with a…………….

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While San Juan and Katie Belle rang their bells. The sounds were so beautiful and majestic, and loud enough for everyone in the city to hear.

Mike: GOD THOSE WHISTLES ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Aaron: YOU SAID IT MIKE!!!!!!

Alex: THOSE ENGINES ARE SOMETHING SPECIAL!!!!!!!!

Lexi and Chrissy jumped in joy and excitement.

Lexi & Chrissy: THEY’RE OKAY!!!!! THEY’RE OKAY!!!!!! OUR CHRIS IS COMING HOME!!!!!!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly then joined all the other cheerleaders and began cheering to their hearts content.

Lexi: 1 2 3 4!!!!!!!!

Chrissy: 5 6 7 8!!!!!!!

Cheerleaders: 9 10 11 12!!!!!!!!!! READY???!!!! OKAY!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO CRIMSON DRAGONS!!!! YOU KICKED THEIR ASSES AND SAVED OUR HOME!!!!!! YOU’RE OKAY AND RETURNING HOME!!!!!! YOU GO CRIMSON DRAGONS!!!!!!!!

Just then all the lights in the city went dark. All the lights went out for no reason, and no one knew what was going on. Everyone began freaking out and thought that the Dark Railway had returned when music began playing in the city’s PA system.
The music then got louder and louder until and announcement was heard all across the city.

Announcement: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS!!!!!!!!! THE MAGICAL RAILWAY PROUDLY PRESENTS…………..
A SPECTACULAR NIGHT TIME PAGENT OF MAGIC AND IMAGINATION…………..
IN A MILLION DAZZLING LIGHTS………….
AND ASTOUNDING MUSICAL………….SOUNDS……………
ARE THE BEAUTIFUL CRIMSON………….DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then a video of Chris from when he was 17 with him singing in a recording studio in London shows up on the massive video screens and the song is then heard throughout the city.

Lexi & Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!!! IT’S HIM!!!!

Lexi and Chrissy all began jumping up dancing along with Lilly, Wendy, Nina, and all the other cheerleaders as the music began playing

Music: SWITCH ON THE SKIES AND THE STARS GLOW FOR YOU
GO SEE THE WORLD CAUSE IT’S ALL SO BRAND NEW
DON’T CLOSE YOUR EYES CAUSE YOUR FUTURE’S READY TO SHINE
IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE WE LEARN HOW TO FLY……….
WELCOME TO THE RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT……
SOMETHINGS IN THE AIR YOU CAN’T DENY………………

Just then both the San Juan and Katie Belle Crimson Dragons come into view all lit up like an electrical parade and charging at full steam.

Music: PUT YOUR HANDS UP CAUSE THE NIGHT IS YOUNG
KICK YOUR FEET UP WHEN YOU JOIN THE FUN
AS THE MAGIC SETS US ALL A-GLOW………….
I WANNA KNOW………..MY FRIENDS………..

I NEVER WANT THIS TO END!!!
AH-OH, AH-OH!!!!
WHEN CAN WE DO THIS AGAIN????!!!!
AH-OH, AH-OH!!!!

Everyone then joined in and danced as the music continued playing and the 2 Crimson Dragons came charging down the track before gracefully taking off into the sky and flying on their own accords.

Music: YOU CAN FLY, YOU CAN FLY………..
YOU CAN FLY………………
YOU CAN FLY
YOU CAN FLY…………
THE SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT
SHINES IN THE NIGHT FOR YOU!!!!
TO TELL YOU THAT THE DREAMS YOU PLAN

The beautiful gold smoke poured down on the cheering crowds below, and it wasn’t long until almost every steam locomotive on the Magical Railway began parading through the downtown area showing off their beauty including McCloud 18, UP 4466, the Graham County Shay 1925, as well as Bob’s personal little 2-4-0T saddle tanker with the locomotives and cars names fully displayed. L.A MANDEZ on the sides of the locomotive’s cab panels, L.N. GRANGER on the sides of the combine, WENDY MARVELL on the sides of one of the open-air cars, A.M. MANDEZ on the sides of the coach, NINA YAMADA on the sides of the other open-air car, and C.N. GRANGER on the sides of the observation parlor car.
Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Wendy, and Nina, all burst into tears after seeing their names on the sides of Bob’s beautiful little train for they felt touched to have their names on the side, and Lexi felt even more touched for her sister’s name Alexis, was also on the sides of the train as well.

Lexi: THIS MEANS SO VERY MUCH TO ME CHRIS!!!!

Chrissy: YOU REALLY ARE SUCH A SWEET HEART CHRIS!!!!

Just then fireworks started shooting off left and right and the music changed.

Music: IT’S A WORLD WHERE YOU BELONG
WHERE YOU CAN DREAM ALOUD
YOUR HEART WILL FOLLOW
GET UP AND SING ALONG
THE MOMENT IS HERE AND NOW

IF WE BELIEVE IN THE FANTASY

As the Crimson Dragon’s golden smoke rained down on the crowds and trains below, it wasn’t long until all the trains below lit up along with the whole city.
The sparkles on Lexi’s, Chrissy’s, and Lilly’s cheerleading uniforms also lit up as did all the other cheerleader’s uniforms. Lexi and Chrissy’s tiaras also lit up, and as the 2 Crimson Dragon sisters steamed high above the city, objects lighting up would only continue.

Music: COME ON & LIVE

COME ON & LIVE THE MAGIC

Just then a bunch scenes of the destruction of the Old San Juan from when she was crushed in the tunnel to the epic battles between Bob and Mike Hurley along with the beautiful restoration San Juan and the Dark Railway from over 50 years ago show up on the video screen. Shortly after, scenes of Katie Belle arriving in The Magical World show up, along with Katie Belle’s destruction from when she fell off the bridge to her beautiful restoration, to the epic battles with her and the Dark Railway as well as the epic battle between Chris and Cameron Hurley before the destruction of The Dark Railway and Big Thunder Mountain.
Just then the music changes again, and fire comes bellowing out of both San Juan’s & Katie Belle’s smoke stacks as if they were actual fire breathing dragons.
Also, 3 beautiful Mississippi Paddle Wheel Steam ships named Admiral Joe Flower, Richard Irvine, and Mark Twain came chugging over to the city on the beautiful lake as they too were also lit up like an electrical parade.
San Juan and Katie Belle continued huffing and puffing and flying in the air as if they were balls of energy.
The music on the city’s PA system then changed yet again as the celebration continued.

Music: SEEING IN THE MIND AND YOU WILL FIND
IN YOUR IMAGINATION
MYSTERIES IN MAGIC
VISIONS FANTASMIC
LEADING TO STRANGE & WONDEROUS DREAMS

BUT THEN THEY ALL COME TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND OUT OF THE NIGHT

CREATING A NIGHT OF WONDEROUS DREAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just then the nighttime spectacular’s finale begun as multiple fireworks shot off left and right all around the beautiful city, and the musical numbers continued to change.

Music: COME ON & LIVE THE MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then more fireworks continued to shoot off left and right like no tomorrow until every last pyrotechnic cannon ran empty before the music returned to its original number.

Music: WHEN CAN WE DO THIS AGAIN?????!!!!!
AH-OH, AH-OH!!!
I NEVER WANT THIS TO END……….
AH-OH, AH-OH!!!!!!!
WHEN CAN WE DO THIS AGAIN????!!!!!!!!!
WHEN CAN WE DO THIS AGAIN????!!!!!!!!!!!

As the music was wrapping up, both the San Juan and Katie Belle then reversed, before making their way back to the rails on the ground with the parlor cars touching down gently back on the tracks before the rest of the trains follow until both San Juan and Katie Belle were safely back.
Together both San Juan and Katie Belle rang their bells as Bob and Chris yanked on their whistle chords with a very long and loud blast as the music came to an end.

WHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Music: WHEN CAN WE DO THIS AGAIN?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then all the lights in the city came back on, and then everything glowing in the night was no more.
Chris and Bob then climbed out the cabs on both Crimson Dragon locomotives and shook hands.

Bob: THAT WAS AMAZING!!!!!

Chris: IT SURE WAS!!!!!!!!

Bob & CHRIS: WE DID!!!!!! WE DESTROYED THE DARK RAILWAY ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!!!

Bob: MIKE HURLEY IS NO MORE!!!!!!

Chris: SO IS CAMERON!!!!!!!!!

Bob: Good Riddance!!!!! That’s what I say!!!

Chris: Those 2 were sick and were beyond the point of being saved.

Bob: Got that right man, but you know what, you did alright!!!

Just then Chris heard familiar high pitched voices.

Lexi & Chrissy: CHRIS!!!!

Chris: UH-OH!!!! I’m in trouble now!!!!

Chris then tried to scramble back into Katie Belle’s cab but it was no use, for Lexi and Chrissy tackled him to the ground and kissed him left and right before he had the chance.

Chris: GEEZE!!!! GIRLS!!!!!! Give me some room to breath for God Sakes!!!!

Lexi: CHRIS, I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE OKAY!!!!

Chrissy: YOU KEPT YOUR PROMISE!!!! YOU’RE STILL ALIVE WITH NO SCRATCH ON YOU!!!!!

Chris: Well, I’d be lying if I said yes to that because………

Chris then lifted his shirt and unwrapped his massive wound, but thankfully the bleeding around the stitches had stopped. Both Lexi and Chrissy looked at it in shock and awe.

Chris: Cameron struck me on the side the moment I told him that you girls and the locomotives weren’t objects to push around. He snapped, got pissed, and slashed me. He then backed me into a corner and I almost lost consciousness, but then I saw childhood memories of you Lexi, and I knew that I couldn’t die right then and there. I then managed to overpower Cameron, and I killed him right on the spot.
Then Mike Hurley tries to kill me, but Bob and I were just too fast and sharp for him, and we both managed to take him out in one blow. The Dark Railway engines on the other hand; got so banged up on Big Thunder Mountain that there was no way that they’d be able to make it out alive. LOL!!!

Lexi then began to cry for how Chris almost died on her yet again, but managed to stay alive just for her.

Lexi: Chris, you are my hero and I love you. I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!

Lexi then wrapped her arms around Chris and kissed him on the cheek.

Chris: I love you too Lexi, and you don’t have to worry anymore. It’s all over.

Chrissy then had tears roll down her face as she hugged and kissed Chris.

Chrissy: There isn’t anyone I’ve met whose braver than you Chris. Nor is there any guy I’d rather be with. Chris, I LOVE YOU!!!!!

Chris: I love you too Chrissy!

Lexi: Well, like how Alexis and I would fight on over who was gonna marry you, it now looks like it’s Chrissy and I now. *Giggles*

Chrissy: Why fight when we can share him? You are like my twin sister after all.

Lexi: True, and I don’t mind sharing my brother with you. It was my idea to bring you 2 together anyways.

Chris: Ugh-Oh Boy!!!! We’re gonna need a bigger master suite!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: *GIGGLES* That we will!!!!!

Chris: Also promise me to lighten up on the quiche Lil Sis.

Lexi: *WHINES* AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE IT!!!!!!

Chris: Yeah, but Alexis and I have had to suffer the after math, and no doubt Chrissy has too.

Chrissy: Yes I have, and it’s not pleasant.

Lexi: Yeah, but you fart a lot too Chrissy!!!!

Chrissy: At least I give a warning before I do it!!!!

Chris: Uh-Oh Boy!!!!

Mike: I feel sorry for you man!!!

Aaron: You have it rough man!!!!

Alex: Looks like your days of being single are over!!!!

Chris: Yep, my bachelor days are over. LOL!!!

Wendy: But it’s sweet, you have 2 beautiful girls that love and care for you!!!

Nina: I really love your sister Chris. She’s really sweet and really fun and outgoing.

Wendy: And even though she’s 17, she’s still very pure and innocent.

Nina: She is just so cute, and her love for you is just the cutest and sweetest thing.

Wendy: I hope I turn out to be just like her because she’s a wonderful role model for us.

Nina: I know, and when we begin our new lives, we’re joining a cheerleading squad.

Wendy: I’ve always wanted to join but never had the chance.

Nina: We can now that we’re starting our new lives.

Just then Aaron & Alex walked up to Nina and Wendy.

Alex: Nina, Wendy, can we talk to you for a moment?

Wendy: Of course!!!

Aaron: Alex and I have done a lot of back & forth talking about this and we have decided that we want to adopt you girls as our little sisters.

Both Nina and Wendy looked at each other in shock and disbelief.

Nina & Wendy: REALLY???!!!!!

Alex & Aaron: Yes!!! We are 2 lonely brothers after all and we’d love to have some company, and Chris has A LOT on his plate now.

Aaron: He’d probably go crazy with more girls in his life.

Alex: So, we’ll cut him a break and adopt you if you’re okay with it.

Aaron: We promise to love and care for you as much as we can.

Alex: And we’ll always be there for you whenever you need us.

Both Nina and Wendy then jumped up and hugged Aaron and Alex and gave them a kiss on their cheeks.

Nina & Wendy: THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!

Wendy: THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO US!!!!

Nina: WE NOW HAVE A FAMILY AGAIN!!!!

Aaron: Our parents always wanted to have girls, and with Alex and I grown up, they’d be thrilled to have you join our family.

Both Nina and Wendy cried as they hugged and kissed their new big brothers as Lilly wrapped her arms around Juan and kissed him, while both Lexi and Chrissy wrapped their arms around Chris and kissed him left and right.

Mike: Just great!!!! Am I the only one here without a girl???!!!! Eh, who cares, I’ll continue drinking away at my booze. LOL!!!!

Mike then picks up his bottle of Vodka and drinks up while Lexi catches him in the act.

Lexi: MICHAEL!!!! I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU NO MORE THAN ONE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE A DAY!!! YOU’RE DRINKING A WHOLE BOTTLE AND HAVE A GLASS OF……..What is that again?

Mike: Long Island Ice Tea???!!!!

Lexi: THAT!!!!! YOU’RE BREAKING YOUR WORD AND GOING OVER BOARD AGAIN AND…….

Mike: Hey Shut up and drink this, you’ll feel better.

Mike tried to get Lexi to drink the Long Island Ice Tea, but Chris walked over and snatched.

Chris: Guys, I just had the tar beat out of me, YET again, Chrissy and Lexi aren’t leaving me alone and are still tugging at me left and right, so if anyone needs alcohol, IT’s ME!!!!

Chris then had a few sips of the Long Island before smashing the glass to the ground?

Mike: AWWWWWWWW MAN!!!!!!! DID YOU REALLY HAVE TO DO THAT???!!!!!!

Chris: What the hell was that???!!!

Mike: It was Long Island Ice Tea!!!

Chris: Okay, that is definitely too strong for me, so I’m ordering a sangria or Moscow Mule when we’re back home.

Lexi: That’s my brother!!!!

Chrissy: That’s why Lexi and I love you so much!!! You have better self control.

Chris: But Mike is a really good guy; he just had a fall out with his girlfriend which is why he has a drinking issue.

Lexi: OooooohhhhhH!!!!!! Now that makes sense.

Just then Aleasha appeared in front of the 2 Crimson Dragon sister trains.

Aleasha: Well done Bob and Chris. You have completed your task and destroyed the Dark Railway once and for all.
You also restored peace and balance to our world, and now all the trains are back.
And it’s all thanks to you. Thank you Bob, Chris, Lexi, Chrissy, Juan, Mike, Aaron, Alex, Lilly, Wendy, and Nina. And thank you too Crimson Dragons. And yes, Thank you very much too Volvagia. If it wasn’t for all of you, the Dark Railway would still be around wreaking havoc and destroying our world, but thankfully, you put an end to them before they had the chance. Now at last, I can crown the rightful rulers of this world.

Aleasha then placed a massive crown on Bob’s head along with a smaller one Chris’s, as well as a beautiful tiara on top of Lilly’s head.

Aleasha: By the powers vested in me, I now here by dub thee King Robert Campi Turner, Prince Christian Allen Mandez, Princess Lexi Annabelle Mandez, Princess Christina Nicole Granger, and Princess Lillian Natalie Granger.
I also dub thee Earl Juan Carson Vail, Duke Alexander Medina, Duke Aaron Medina, Duchess Nina Yamada, Duchess Wendy Marvell, and Sir Micheal Anatol.

Aleasha then turned to both Katie Belle and San Juan and placed massive ribbons and medals around their headlamp bezels.

Aleasha: I also dub you 2 the Royal Trains of our Magical World.

Aleasha then placed a massive ribbon on Volvagia’s bonnet and placed a beautiful trophy in her trunk.

Aleasha: And our world’s Royal Nobel Steed. Or Car for that matter.

Aleasha then walked over to Bob’s little 2-4-0T Saddle tank engine.

Aleasha: As for you little one, you are now the next heir to the title Crimson Dragon!!! For both San Juan and Ten Mile have to return to their world, our world still needs a Crimson Dragon, and you fit the bill to a T. You maybe a lot smaller than the 2 Mason Bogie engines, but I see a lot of power and spirit deep inside of you. I know that when you awaken, you will also bring peace, balance, and prosperity to our world just like San Juan and Ten Mile. But this Crimson Dragon does need people to take care of it.

Bob: Phil, she is all yours. You have been a great engineer, you run her well, and have taken good care of her, so you deserve her.

Just then 2 jocks and 3 cheerleaders then walked up to the little train and volunteered.

Jock: If you don’t mind, I’d like to help out.

Aleasha: Very well, what is your name?

Jock: My name is Trevor, and this is my friend Eric.

Cheerleader: And my name is Erika, and these are my best friends Sarah and Haley.

Sarah: We’d be honored to look after the next Crimson Dragon for you.

Aleasha: Very Well. Phil, Trevor, Eric, Erika, and Sarah, I hear by dub you as the next Crimson Dragon’s masters. May you always love, care, and honor her till death do you part. May you follow in the foot steps of Bob, Chris, Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Juan, Alex, Aaron, Mike, Nina, and Wendy and protect our world in the same way they have.

Phil & Trevor: Will do!!!

Aleasha: Also, as the next Crimson Dragon’s masters, you will be living in the Palace.

Phil & Trevor: Sounds good!!!!

The masters of the next Crimson Dragon along with Bob, Chris and their friends all introduce their selves, and mingle before the clock strikes 1:00 a.m.

Aleasha: And with that, it’s the town’s curfew. Have a good night everyone and sleep well.

Everyone then climbs back aboard their trains, and set off for the Palace.

Chapter 22

The Last Night

One by one all 7 trains are slowly and carefully backed up into the Palace basement.  All 7 locomotives are then detached from their train consists, and get their fuel and water levels topped off before getting their fires dropped for the night.   The safety chains are then dropped under the driving wheels on all locomotives, and all the crews set to work on polishing the locomotives.
Lexi and Chrissy could tell how much Chris loved Katie Belle by the way he was polishing her, and gently kissed her headlamp.

Chrissy: He really does love his engine, doesn’t he?

Lexi: Yeah……This is a side to him that I never see, nor that I ever knew actually existed.  It’s a vulnerable side that I think is very sweet but its sad that he mostly hides it.

Chrissy: And it’s something he’s very passionate about and loves so much.

Lexi: You can see how gently and lovingly he polishes the train and you can see how much heart and soul he’s putting into his effort.

Juan: It’s like back in the old days when one engineer would be assigned one engine FOR LIFE.  And the engineer would take care of it as if it were a special part of him.

Big Joe: And during the turn of the century, railroading was HUGE.  It was also very emotional and personal.  You can see how this one has so much beautiful chrome silver, brass, as well as the beautiful dark crimson red colors with dark purple pin striping.

Robert: A lot of steam locomotives were colorful like this, and many engineers took pride in polishing their iron horses.

Jack Verdi: And Chris is no exception.  His passion for trains is something he’s very proud of, and it’s something that has been dear to him all his life.

Tom: He has been in love with the old steam engines long before any of you girls were born, so his passion for old steam engines runs very deep.

Jack Anderson: It’s in the blood, and that’s why us railway men are crazy about it.

Doug: And I’ve been divorced because of it.  Some people just don’t understand how much devotion goes into operating and maintaining a steam locomotive.

Mike: And Chris even told me one time that he feels like he was born 150 years too late, and wishes that he was born during the 1840s.  

Juan: He’s told me that too, and I can relate all too well.

Aaron: Back then, things were MUCH more simple.  People had standards; people dressed up everywhere they went.  Girls couldn’t expose themselves above their wrists or ankles in public, and the only way really go from A to B was by railroad.

Alex: And steam locomotive engineers were highly looked up to and coveted.  If you weren’t a noble or in politics, then a locomotive engineer is what you wanted to be because they were the great heroes of the Industrial Revolution.

Juan: Chris would probably would have faced a lot of hardships back then but nothing at all like in this day and age.  He has been bullied, hazed, and harassed over his love of trains when he was a Freshmen in high school.  They all thought because he liked trains, it automatically meant he liked Thomas, and for that he was bullied.

Lexi: THAT EXPLAINS A LOT OF THINGS!!!!  NO WONDER HE LOVED BEING IN ENGLAND SO MUCH!!!

Juan: EXACTLY!!!! In England, if you trash talk trains, you’re not gonna last 5 minutes because trains are blood lines in England.  The Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway that he volunteered as a fireman on was ESPECIALLY a vital blood line because it was how a lot of passengers and freight went in and out of Kingswear as well as tourists.  

Big Joe: And the British invented in the trains from the get-go and they take great pride in their steam trains.  Heck trains are in the educational books over there, and they’re also important subjects in history classes, so if you’re in England and you don’t like trains, then you’re in the wrong country.

Juan: When he was in England, he could share his passion for trains no problem, and everyone understood and could relate to him in every way.  Many people he met grew up with the steam trains, and understood why he was so passionate about them.  The people were nothing but kind and understanding towards him about it, and by the time he left, he had multiple phone numbers and email addresses because they all loved talking to him about steam trains.

Lexi: He never really shares this stuff with me because he figures that I’m a girl and am not really into this kind of stuff and would find it boring.  I don’t, and I think it’s wonderful.  It actually breaks my heart to know that he would hide something so dear to him from me and I’m his baby sister.  I love him with all my heart and more than anything and he should know that.  Even though this is not my hobby or passion in life, I still think it’s amazing and I support Chris 1000 percent on this.

Chrissy: And to be honest, I am glad that he is as passionate about trains as he is because it means he is too busy doing this instead of getting on drugs, or getting in trouble with the law like most men do.

Lexi: But it scares the shit of me on how often he puts himself in danger through this.  I mean look!!!!!!!!!

Juan: You’re right, he’s crawling on his hands and knees on the boiler jacket and his face is just mere inches away from the smoke stack as he polishes the bell.  It’s a good thing that boiler jacket is VERY well insulated because if it wasn’t, he’d be pretty badly burned.

Lexi: And given that we’re siblings, we see each other naked a lot, and on his back I see a lot of scald marks from being underneath these things.

Big Joe: Yeah, unfortunately that happens when you work on these guys.  It's part of the job.

Tom: It happens to all locomotive firemen and engineers.

Doug: You get so used to it that it doesn’t even phase you anymore.

Lexi: It still worries me……..

Chrissy: It worries me too….

Robert: But know that Chris knows what he’s doing, and is more than capable of taking care of himself.  If he wasn’t thank he wouldn’t be doing what he’s doing now.

Bob: This is a true bond of man and machine, like how it was during the turn of the last century.  A lot of locomotive engineers loved their engines like they were family, and that is how both Chris and I feel about our engines.

Juan: It runs deep in the blood and soul.  And if only Chris was born in the 1840s like he wished, he’d probably would have had a better life because this day and age is just too hard on him.  It drives him nuts how girls are basically almost fully naked leaving him bursting at the seams tempted to…………….do something that could get himself in big trouble, along with the fact that most standards everyone had no longer exist along with the respect everyone had for each other.  It’s like our world has gone to hell, and he just wishes that people wouldn't judge like they do today.  
It’s all about money, it’s all about sex, it’s all about gaining ego, and if you like something that is different, then you’re shunned from society and Chris is sick of it.

Mike: It’s how I feel too.  No one has decency anymore; they’re just a bunch of dishonest liars and backstabbers.  Which is why I have resorted to a bad habit of drinking.

Aaron: But steam trains help us escape that reality, and take us back to the days of when things were better, and skill actually meant something.

Lexi: If that’s how Chris felt then he should have told me.  I would have been there for him and helped him through his hard times in a heartbeat.  He knows I would.

Juan: 2 things, ever since you stole his first kiss when he was 15, he was bullied and hazed for incest, and he didn’t want to be a burden on you.  

Lexi: WHAT???!!!!!

Juan: The reason why he pushed you away was partly because of his humiliation but it wasn’t the main reason.  He didn’t want you to know how angry he was with things, and didn’t want to burden you.  He also didn't want you to think that you were mad at him.

A few tears then poured down Lexi’s face after hearing the truth.

Lexi: Everything’s coming out at once, and it’s too much.  

Juan: He didn’t want you to get hurt.

Lexi: I KNOW!!!!  Still, I wish he would have told me, so I could have been by his side.  He suffered because of my selfishness.  I really should have stopped wearing underwear with a gymnastics leotard, and shouldn’t have made him promise to kiss me.

Chrissy: But understand that you didn’t tell him to kiss you on the lips, it was his choice, so it’s on him and not you.  It’s not your fault Lexi, it’s no ones fault.

Juan: It wasn’t his fault either.  People in this day and age are just fucked up.

Mike: You said it man.

Wendy: You 2 were young and innocent, and it was sweet.

Nina: There are just too many bullies in this day and age, and it’s no wonder Chris is sick of it.

Chrissy: It was sweet, a big brother taking care of his little sister and helping her out.  And even making sure he doesn’t burden her with his problems.

Lexi: He wouldn’t have been a burden, that’s the thing.

Chrissy: I know, but I still can’t think of anyone anymore selfless than Chris.  He really is amazing, which is why I have fallen head over heals in love with him just like you have.

Lexi: You’re right.  And now I’m never gonna leave his side.  

Chrissy: He’s a precious jewel that cannot be replaced.

Big Joe: I’ve never seen a man with more heart and sole than Chris.

Robert: It takes a lot to get to know him, but when you do, you realize just how special he is.

Tom: He’s very dedicated and you just don’t see that in a kid like him.

Jack Verdi: It’s very hard to find people like Chris in this day and age.  Katie Belle is a very lucky engine to have him as her engineer and she knows it too.

Jack Anderson: Look at how much he’s polishing her!!!  To our eyes, she’s clean and shiny as a whistle, and yet he’s still polishing her.  That shows you true love and dedication of a locomotive and its engineer.

Bob: I was the same way at his age.  There’s just so much life and passion in those eyes, and you see through the pupil into the heart when you see that passion.   It’s not something you see everyday.

Doug: There is a love story about an engineer and his locomotive, and this story brings Chris to tears every time he hears it.  It's about a beautifully built logging 2-8-2 Makoto, very much like the McCloud number 18, though this engine lives up in Washington.  The engine is Chehalis Centralia Cascade Railroad number #15, that was built in 1916 for the Puget Sound & Cascade Railroad as their number #200.  She hauled logs during her career.  She was eventually sold to the Cowlits Chehalis & Cascade Railroad and became the number #15 which is the number she still retains today.  A young man named Harold Borovec fell in love with the locomotive, and he eventually became the locomotive's engineer.  In 1959 she was finally retired and placed on display in a local community park near Chehalis, Washington.  No one including engineer Harold Borovec ever thought she'd run again.
In 1986 a non profit organization formed the Chehalis Centralia Railroad after visiting the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad.  They then took the engine to the Mount Rainier shop in Mineral and began the express purpose of restoring number #15 and bringing her back to live.  When she was first steamed up again in 1989, the same engineer, Harold Borovec, who last put out the fire over 30 years earlier, was the first person to open the throttle.  Ever since number #15's restoration, Harold Borovec has been running his beloved engine along the old right of way off the Milwaukee Road, and still runs her today.

Big Joe: That's a true love story of an engineer and his locomotive and today, Harold Borovec is the oldest locomotive engineer in North America.

Robert: He's in his late 80s, so it completely blows me away.

Juan: I can easily see Chris running a steam locomotive at that old age.

Mike: Without a doubt. LOL!!!

Doug: Well, I’m gonna turn in for the night.

Tom: I’m with you on that Doug.

Big Joe: Me too, have a good night everyone.

Robert: Good night guys.

All of the train crews then put down their rags and retire to their rooms for the night while Chrissy, and Lexi stay behind as Chris finishes polishing up Katie Belle.
Chris then looks at his cell phone and sees that it’s 2:30 a.m. in the morning.

Chris: It’s that time already. LOL!!!  Time flies.  We’ll I guess I’ll call it a night.  Good night Katie Belle.

Chris then kisses Katie Belle on the headlamp bezel before climbing off her, putting his polishing rag now on her engineer’s side steam chest top before sitting down and drifting off to sleep by her number 2 cylinder.
Lexi then crawls into Chris’s lap and gently strokes his face while Chrissy sits next to Chris on his left side and gently strokes Chris’s face as well.


Lexi & Chrissy: Good night Chris.  No matter what happens, we’ll always be by your side because we love you so very much.

The girls then kiss him on the cheeks, lips, and forehead before Lexi falls asleep on his chest, and Chrissy falls asleep with her head on his left shoulder.
Volvagia then shuts off her headlamps as she drifts off to sleep.
A few days later, everyone was packing their things and setting off to return to the real world.

Chris: Alright girls, you have everything?

Lexi: Yep, we have our cheer uniforms as well as clean underwear laid out on the bed, now we’re going for a swim.

Chris: Are you sure you didn’t forget anything?

Lexi: Yes I’m sure Chris; I’m not a little girl anymore you know.

Chris: I know, but you’re still my little sister.

Chrissy: Don’t worry baby, I’m looking after her.  We also have a make up bag laid out on the bed for the trip.

Chris: Thanks sweetie.

Chrissy: Of course, now us girls will go for swim in the pools and enjoy the restaurants one more time before we go.

Chris: Alrighty girls.  Now I’ll check on the guys.

Lexi: Sounds good, but be sure to give us our bubble bath before we go.

Chris: Yes Lexi, I know!!!

Lexi: That a boy Big Brother.  *Giggles*

Chrissy: He is such a sweetheart.

Lexi: And that’s why I love him.

Chrissy: Same here, and no other girl can have him. *Giggles*

Lexi: Yep, he’s all ours. *Giggles*

Chris then walked down the basement and locked down and secured Volvagia with the safety chains before putting all suit cases in the baggage car.  The thought then dawned on him right then and there.

Chris: WHY DID WE HAVE TO THROW THE GIRLS BAGS IN UP 4466’S BOX CAR WHEN WE COULD HAVE PLACED THEM IN KATIE BELLE’S BAGGAGE CAR???!!!!

Big Joe: LOL!!!!!! Because we were stupid and in a hurry to hit the road.  We were also being evicted from the warehouse where as right now, we’re not in a hurry.

Chris: Good point!!! LOL!!!

Tom: Now that I think about it, we have all the machines loaded onto the trains, and Bob’s restoration & machine shop along with all of his old machines are just a few yards down the track in the yard for the little L.A. Mandez tanker.  Do we really need these tolls on this small toolbox cart that we overloaded in Volvagia’s trunk?  We have plenty, and we can always buy more when we need them.

Doug: That is a good point.

Jack Verdi: Lets give the tools to Phil, Trevor, and Eric.  They can put them to good use.

Jack Anderson: And that little 2-4-0 Saddle tank engine will need TLC, so they’ll need all the help they can get.

Chris: That sounds like a good plan.

Bob: HEY PHIL, TREVOR, AND ERIC!!!! GET OVER HERE!!!!

Phil, Trevor and Eric then walk over to Bob and the toolbox.

Chris: These tools came in might handy for me, when I restored Katie Belle and brought her back to life.  

Bob: And those machines in the restoration shop just down the track also came in handy for me when I restored San Juan and brought her back to life.

Chris: And now we give you these very same tools that were used to restore Katie Belle when she was all badly damaged over to you.

Bob: And we give you the machines that were used to restore San Juan when she was badly damaged over to you.

Chris: Which means your gonna be using the same tools and machines that were used to help restore and maintain the 2 famous Crimson Dragons on your soon to be Crimson Dragon.

Bob: We now pass the torch onto you, or should I say, we pass the tools and machines. LOL!!!

Phil, Trevor, and Eric were speechless for they were totally blown away by the generous gifts.

Phil: Bob, I don’t know what to say……

Trevor: I’m completely blown away right now…….

Eric: We don’t know where to start…………..

Bob & Chris: These are gifts passed down from master to master.

Bob: I am the master of the original Crimson Dragon………….

Chris: And I am the master of the original Crimson Dragon’s younger sister……

Bob & Chris: And right now you are the masters of the next Crimson Dragon, so we pass these down onto you.

Chris: And so you don’t forget, BUTLER, YOU CAN BRING THEM IN NOW!!!!

The Butler along with many of the Palace’s carpenters, machinests, mechanics, and blacksmiths all came walking in with multiple steam locomotive parts off various locomotives while the butler came walking in with 2 massive treasure chests.

Chris: We’re gonna make this basement kinda like a Crimson Dragon Museum, for what you are seeing are parts of various old steam locomotives along with a cut away boiler display and tender so you can see how a locomotive works, along with both Crimson Dragons’ original fireboxes, Katie Belle’s sheered pilot and tender wheels, some of the coal used to fuel the San Juan, but most importantly……….

Chris then opened up the large treasure boxes and pulled out the old bells and whistles that were used on San Juan and Katie Belle before they had their accidents.

Chris: You have the whistles and bells that both Crimson Dragon engines wore at some point in their lives.  Even though they are not the original bell and whistle, given that the Crimson Dragons are wearing their original bells and whistles, but know that these are the bells and whistles that they wore before their accidents and are also important treasures.  How we got ahold of the parts is beyond us, but they are here now, and we’ll get to work on properly displaying them.

The Crew along with the palace carpenters, mechanics, blacksmiths, and machinests set to work on setting up glass cases and displaying all the locomotive parts and components along with hanging up pictures, portraits, and paintings of the Crimson Dragon locomotives and train consists.  It isn’t long until everything is then set into place and on display.

Bob: Now your Crimson Dragon has a rightful place to call home.

Chris: And when we go, all these sidings and standard gauge tracks will disappear.  Your track will be the only one left.

Bob: But know that you’re not alone.

Chris: We will always be with you wherever you go on your journey.

Phil: I will never forget this Bob.

Trevor: Thank you so very much Chris.

Eric: Thank you for everything.  You have taught us so much in such little time.

Trevor: And we can’t thank you enough.

Chris: Anytime you guys.  And know that Bob and I installed fusible plugs on top of the firebox on your engine as well as a Mapo, for when your water level drops too low, water from the saddle tank will drench your wood logs, put out the fire and shut off the engine.  Normally a Mapo works very well with oil fired locomotives, so it was a challenge to get it to work on a wood burning engine, but Bob and I have tested it and it works very well on your engine.  So no matter what happens, you guys are in good hands and your engine is as fail safe as it can be.

Bob: Your engine will be with you for a very long time, and I know she will take good care of you as long as you take good care of her in return.

Chris: The L.A. Mandez is a wonderful little engine, and will no doubt bring you guys a lot of special moments the same way San Juan has done for Bob and his friends and family and Katie Belle has done for me, my sister, and my friends.

Phil: We really can’t thank you guys enough.

Trevor: And we’re really gonna miss you when you leave.

Eric: Our world just won’t be the same without you.

Chris: And we’ll miss you guys very much, but friends and I must get our lives on track.  However, we will return to visit someday.

Bob: I’ve been away from my wife and family for too long, and it’s time for me to go home.

Big Joe: And on that note, the crew and I are gonna fire up our engines and get on out of here because we wanna get a head start.

Chris: I completely understand.  Keep us updated on when you get to Los Angeles.

Robert: We will, and you can be assured that we’ll reach LA in no time.

Tom: This shay may not be a fast engine, but she’s no slow poke, so there’s no doubt that we can get to LA within 24 hours if we highball out of here.

Chris: Well, it’s 10:00 a.m. and since the boilers are warm, it’ll only take you guys 2 hours to get up to pressure.  Katie Belle however, will only take an hour and we plan to depart for downtown around 7:45, and this means I have to fire her up around 6:00.  We then plan to say our good byes and leave at 9.00 p.m. on the dot.  I will pull an all-nighter to get us to L.A. by tomorrow.  

Bob: Sounds like a good plan.  I plan on leaving here and departing for the real world around the same time as everyone else to also get a good head start.

Chris: Awesome, sounds good.  The girls want to hang out and enjoy the resort area one last time, so I’m not pushing for an early departure.  They don’t like to be rushed, and we will no doubt have delays. LOL!!!

Big Joe: Yeah, best not to rush the ladies. LOL!!!

Chris: Lexi throws a fit if you try. LOL!!!

Robert: We can believe that. LOL!!!

Tom: Well Chris, you should go relax with your sister, we’ve got things here.

Jack Verdi: You’re not due to leave until around 8:00, so you have plenty of time.

Jack Anderson: And you’ve been working so hard that it’s time for you to do nothing for once.

Doug: Take advantage of the off time while you can.

Big Joe: Yeah man, what you still doing down here when you should be relaxing?  Go hang out with your sister and girlfriend with everyone else man!!!

Robert: Chris, getta here!!!

Big Joe: GET AWAY!!!

Chris: Alrighty, will do. LOL!!!!

Chris then walks up the basement stairs and out to the pools where everyone is hanging out.

Lexi: Oh, there he is!!!! Hey Chris, come join us!!!

Chrissy: Yeah, the water’s great.

Chris: I wish I could, but you know the number of stitches and drains I have in my sides from the surgery.  I can’t be in water with the exception of a shower for at least 4 weeks, and it’s only been 12 days since the surgery.

Lilly: Awwwwwwwwww Booo!!!!!

Chris: I will hang out with you guys in the restaurant though.

Lexi: Hey, that works fine for me!!!

Chrissy: As long as we get to spend more time with you is all that matters.

Chris: Well, everything is about ready to go.  All of our bags have been loaded into the baggage car along with Volvagia, the engine is pretty much hostled and ready to go.  Fuel and water levels are at max, and the boiler’s warm.  All I need to do is fire her up and get her up to 200, and that won’t even take an hour to do.

Juan: That’s great.  Is everyone else taking off?

Chris: Pretty much, they want to get a head start on their trip back to LA, while I know we have to say good bye to many before we leave.  Also, I know Katie Belle and I can make up time by pulling an overnight trip.

Lexi & Chrissy: OVERNIGHTER???!!!!!!

Chris: Girls, I’ve already pulled multiple overnighters, one more is not gonna kill me.

Lexi: Still, I don’t like it when you pull one.  You know it worries me.

Chrissy: You’ve overworked yourself too much Chris, and you need to stop.

Chris: Girls, don’t worry about me too much.  If I can restore a locomotive in 7 short days without sleep, I can certainly handle one overnight trip.  Besides Katie Belle pretty much runs herself given how much easier she is to steam and fire.  Not to mention she’s already equipped with a Mapo for when her water drops too low or her high pressure safety valve goes off.

Lexi & Chrissy: STILL, WE WORRY ABOUT YOU!!!!

Lexi: You’re my big brother and I always worry about you because I love you.  I almost lost you twice so I can’t help but worry about you.

Chrissy: And it’s a girlfriend’s worry.  A girl always worries about the guy she loves, and would be devastated if something were to happen.  I was beyond devastated after hearing about your accident, and it’s made me more weary on the danger you put yourself in on that thing.

Lexi & Chrissy: Even with all safety measures taken, we still worry about you.

Chris: Ugh Oh-Boy!!!

Mike: Girls!.........

Aaron: Got that right.

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, & Wendy: HEY, WE HEARD THAT YOU BOYS!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: Anyway, can you please help me out of the pool Chris?

Chrissy: Me too Chris!!!

Lilly: Help me out Juan!!!

Nina & Wendy: Alex, Aaron!!!! Please help us out!!!!

All the guys then help the girls out of the pool before they are knocked to the ground and kissed left and right.

Chris: GEEZE!!!! COME ON GIRLS, GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!

Juan: LILLY, DON’T GO OVERBOARD!!!!!

Alex & Aaron: EASE UP YOU 2!!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy: NA-AH, NA-AH!!!! NO WAY!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!

Chris: That’s it, I’m going back down to the basement, and I don’t care if Big Joe kicks me out of there or not.

Juan: I don’t blame you Chris!!!

Aaron & Alex: We’re with you Chris!!!

Mike: Hey man, this isn’t coffee!!!!

Chris & Lexi: MICHAEL, EASE UP ON THE BOOZE!!!!!!

Chris: IF ANYONE’S HAVING AN ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE, IT’S ME!!!!  BAR TENDER, I NEED A RASBERRY MOSCOW MULE!!!!!

Bar Tender: Right away sir!!!

Juan: Cranberry Sangria for me please!!!!

Aaron & Alex: We’ll take Mojitos!!!!

Mike: Another Long Island Iced Tea!!!

Bar Tender: Got it!!!  And I’ll give you girls your usual Shirley Temples.

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy: Awesome!!! Thank you, but it’s no fair that the guys can drink and we can’t!!!

Chris: Well, us guys are over 18 and legal here.

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy: STILL, IT’S NOT FAIR!!!!

Chris: SORRY!!!! LOL!!!!

Lexi: You owe me and Chrissy a bubble bath in a few hours!!!!

Chrissy: I SOOOO WANT ONE!!!!!!

Lilly: I WANT ONE TOO JUAN!!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: AS DO WE ALEX & AARON!!!!

Jaun, Alex, and Aaron: CHRIS!!!!!!

Chris: HEY, It’s not me!!!!!!  I’ve been giving Lexi bubble baths since the dawn of time.  Well, at least before our estrangement happened, because my parents made taking care of her as a responsibility and bathing her was part of taking care of her.

Chrissy: And you’re new girlfriend wants that same care as well. *Giggles*

Lilly: And I love bubble baths too!!!!

Nina & Wendy: As do we!!!

Chris: Well guys, our days of being bachelors are over.

Juan, Alex, and Aaron: EXCEPT FOR YOURS MICHAEL YOU LUCKY BASTARD!!!!!!

Mike: Yeah, yeah, Lucky me!!!!

Everyone then had a good laugh and mingled at the restaurant by the large lagoon pool by the various water fountains, waterslides, and waterfalls over the next several hours.  They all then enjoyed a beautiful sun set as their last day ended.

Lilly: That was beautiful Juan.

Juan: It sure was Lilly.

Lexi: I’ll never forget this Big Brother.

Chrissy: Neither will I Babe.

Chris: I’m really gonna miss this place.

Nina & Wendy: As will we.

Alex & Aaron: Same here!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: Alright Chris, it’s time for our bubble bath!!!

Lilly: Same here Juan!!!!

Nina & Wendy: Us too!!!

Chris: Bare with it and get used to it guys!!!

Juan, Alex, and Aaron: CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! MICHAEL YOU LUCKY BASTARD!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: Girls are a lot of work, so get used to it!!!!

Everyone then went upstairs to their suites and set to work on giving the girls their baths while setting to work on taking their showers while Mike continued to drink his Long Island Iced Tea as it got dark out.

Mike: Man this is the life!!!!  I get to see and touch beautiful girls, but I don’t have to fully deal with them, while I get to lounge and drink my Long Island, and I also get my steam train fix as well.  Nothing beats this. LOL!!!

Meanwhile up in the master suite.

Lexi & Chrissy: SHIT!!!! WHERE THE HELL ARE OUR BIKINI SPANKIES???!!!!!

Chris: NOT THIS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: FOUND EM!!!! NOW WHERE’S OUR HAIR RIBBONS???!!!!!!

Chris: OUCH!!!! I CUT MYSELF WITH THE RAZOR YET AGAIN!!!!!!!

Lilly: JUAN, ARE MY CLEAN PANTIES ON THE BED???!!!!

Juan: YES THEY ARE BABY!!!!!

Lilly: GOOD, NOW HAND THEM TO ME ALONG WITH MY CHEER UNIFORM!!!!!!

Juan: ON IT!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: YOU BOYS BETTER BE GENTLE WITH OUR SWIMSUTS!!!!! DO NOT RING THEM OUT LIKE SPOUNGES!!!!!!

Alex & Aaron: GOT IT!!!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: NOW WHERE IS OUR EYE GLITTER???!!!!!!

Lilly: NOW I NEED YOU TO HELP ME OUT OF THE TUB AND DRY ME OFF BEFORE HELPING ME GET DRESSED!!!!

Nina & Wendy: SCRUB OUR BACKS AND WASH US FROM HEAD TO TOE BEFORE RINSING US OFF, THEN HELPING US OUT AND DRYING US OFF.  THEN BE SURE TO HELP US GET DRESSED!!!!!

The drama went on and on and on until all the guys snapped!!!!

Chris, Juan, Alex, & Aaron: FUCK THIS DRAMA!!!! WE’RE GOING TO FIRE UP THE ENGINE AND GET US READY FOR THE RETURN TRIP!!!!

With all the girls practically ready to go, all the guys exit their suites and make a mad dash to the basement where Katie Belle was waiting for them along with Mike who was finishing up his long Island Iced Tea.

Mike: There you guys are, I was waiting for you.  It was starting to get a little boring down here.

Chris, Juan, Alex, and Aaron: MICHAEL!!!!! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA ON HOW MUCH DRAMA WE WERE DEALING WITH????!!!!!!!

Mike: UH-OH!!!!  OH SHIT!!!!

Mike took off running while Juan, Alex, and Aaron then chased after him and beat the tar out of him for getting off Scott Free while Chris set to work on firing up Katie Belle.
Chris, opened up the atomizer, firing, and blower valves before pressing the button for the electronic ignition and lighting the fire in the firebox.  Chris then opened up all the valves on the steam turret, along with the injector valves, and emptied and refilled his water glasses.  Chris then set to work on oiling up the locomotive and train cars while waiting for Katie Belle’s boiler pressure to climb as Juan, Alex, and Aaron, continued to beat Mike up to a Pulp.

Chapter 23

Return To The Real World

Katie Belle’s low pressure safety valve popped off as her boiler pressure had reached 200 PSI. Chris then opened the main steam turret valve for the air compressor and with a very loud and powerful………………

BANG………BANG……………BANG………..BANG………..BANG………..BANG……………BANG………………BANG………….BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG-BANG BANG-BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Belle was ready to go.
Chris then released Katie Belle’s brakes, threw her Johnson Bar in Reverse, gave 3 blasts on the whistle, eased the throttle open, and back Katie Belle onto her train with a solid CLUNK.
Chris then climbed out of Katie Belle’s cab, hooked up the hoses and safety chains before oiling up Katie Belle’s connecting rods and valve gear.

Chris: Alrighty, Bob is on his way as are the other guys. Phil, Trevor, Eric, and their girls are in downtown, so we’ll go say good bye to everyone before we leave this world.

Juan: Sounds good!!!

Chris: Alright Juan, you’ll fire for the short leg into downtown, but I’ll be tackling the full task of operating and firing her on our return to the real world. You guys will all sleep in the parlor car, while I take care of Katie Belle.

Juan: Are you sure you can handle it?

Chris: Absolutely!!!

Juan: Okay, she’s your engine.

Chris: Also, we’ll have a cab rider into downtown, but again, it’ll be just me running her home.

Juan: You got it, read you loud and clear.

Mike: Awwwww man!!!!! Why me?????!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron: QUIT COMPLAINING MICHAEL!!!! YOU DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH A BUNCH OF GIRLS LIKE WE DO!!!

Alex: YOU LUCKY BASTARD!!!!

Just then, Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy walked down the basement, but were not happy with the guys leaving them.

Lexi & Chrissy: CHRIS!!!!!

Lilly: JUAN!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: ALEX!!!!! AARON!!!!!!!

Chris, Juan, Alex, and Aaron: MICHAEL!!!!!!!!

Mike: OH SHIT!!!!!

Chris, Juan, Alex, and Aaron chased after Mike while Lexi, and Chrissy chased after Chris, Lilly chased after Juan, and Nina and Wendy chased after Alex and Aaron.

Chris: MICHAEL!!!!!! WE’RE GONNA BEAT THE TAR OUT OF YOU!!!

Mike: NOW I’M REALLY GONNA NEED TO DRINK LONG ISLAND ICED TEA!!!!!!

Chris, Juan, Alex, and Aaron then caught up to Mike before jumping on top of him and attempted to beat the tar out of him when Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy piled on top and began kissing the guys left and right.

Chris: Come on girls!!!!

Juan: Lilly!!!!!!!

Aaron & Alex: MICHAEL YOU LUCKY BASTARD!!!!

Chris: It is time for us to head out, so I’m gonna need all of you to board.

Lexi & Chrissy: AWWWWWWWWW BOOOOO!!!!!

Chris: However Chrissy, it’s your turn to ride in the cab, but for our trip into downtown.

Chrissy: Chris, I love you.

Chris: I love you too Sweetie.

Juan: Well, Chris do you mind if we have another cab rider?

Chris: Sure, why not, Lilly can ride as well.

Lilly: YAY!!!!

Lexi: Well since I’ve had a ride in the cab, you girls can have your turn.

Chrissy & Lilly: And we’ve been looking forward to this for a while!!! *Giggles*

Chris & Juan: And now can you please get off of us? We need to get onboard.

The girls then get off the guys while the guys get off Mike.

Mike: FINALLY!!!! Now I can get to my booze!!!!

Lexi: Sorry Mike, I kinda lost the key.

Mike: WHAT???!!!!

Lexi: Uhhhhh, Oops!!!! *Giggles*

Mike: When in downtown, I’m sooooooo getting another Long Island Iced Tea!!!!

Chris: Alright, time to get aboard.

Everyone then climbs aboard while Chris, Juan, Chrissy, and Lilly climb aboard Katie Belle’s cab. Chris then picks up the microphone.

Chris: Alrighty everyone, what’s the word??

Everyone: ALL ABOARD!!!!!

Chris: HIGH BALL!!!!!

Juan then rings the bell and opens the firing valve and atomizer valve as Chris gives 2 blasts on the whistle, throws the Johnson bar forward, releases the brakes, eases the throttle open by 2 notches, and Katie Belle steams out of the basement and out of the palace.

Chris: Alrighty everyone, take one last good look at the palace because it’ll be the last time you see it for a while.

Chrissy: I’m really gonna is miss this place. We had a lot of fun.

Lilly: We’ve been through so much in such a short period.

Chris: Got that right.

Chrissy & Lilly: But we’re still mad at you for nearly getting yourself killed.

Chris: I know, but we completed our task, and we can now finally return home.

Chris then notched up the Johnson bar even more and opened up the throttle as Juan opened up the firing valve even more and the firebox began to vibrate like crazy.

Juan: I STILL CAN’T GET OVER HOW AMAZING THIS ENGINE FIRES!!!!

Chris: AND I STILL CAN’T GET OVER THE THROTTLE RESPONSE!!!!!

Katie Belle then picked up speed and it wasn’t long until she was going over 40 feet per second.

Chris: ALRIGHTY, IT’S TIME!!!

Juan: YES……..

Chris and Juan then open up the firebox door, and dump sand into the firebox causing Katie Belle to puff out gold smoke. All of the plant life, trees, and neighboring lake water then lit up in the night like an electrical parade.

Chrissy & Lilly: WOW!!!!! THAT IS SO COOL!!!!!

Chris: The sand gets sucked up through the heat tubes to clean the soot from the tubes and allows the boiler tubes to conduct heat better. However the gold smoke is something special that only this engine, and her older sister have.

Chrissy & Lilly: THAT IS SO AMAZING!!!!

Chris also noticed that the boiler pressure gauge needle stayed at 200 PSI as did Juan.

Chris: BRO, DID YOU SUPER GLUE THE PRESSURE GAUGE NEEDLE???!!! IT HASN’T BUDGED A SINGLE MILLIMETER OFF 200!!!!!

Juan: NO, I WAS GONNA ASK YOU THE SAME QUESTION!!!!!

Chris: THIS ENGINE JUST RUNS LIKE A TOP!!!!

Juan: I LOVE THE UPGRADED BALL VALVE INJECTOR SO MUCH!!!

Chris: AS DO I!!!!

Chrissy & Lilly: BOYS!!! *GIGGLES*

Just then Katie Belle approached a large tress bridge.

Chris: ALRIGHTY GIRLS!!!! READY FOR SOME FUN????!!!!!!

Chrissy & Lilly: YEAH!!!!

Juan: WOULD YOU LIKE TO RING THE BELL WITH ME???!!!

Chris: AND WOULD YOU LIKE TO BLOW THE WHISTLE WITH ME???!!!!

Chrissy & Lilly: WOULD WE????!!!!!!!! HELL YEAH!!!!

Juan and Lilly then placed their hands on the bell chord and rang the bell as Chris and Chrissy placed their hands on the whistle chord and gave a tug on the whistle with a…………

WHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

The sounds of the whistle then echoed throughout the tress bars on the bridge, causing an even greater echo that made the whistle loud enough to be heard from down town.

Chris: I STILL CAN’T GET OVER HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS WHISTLE IS!!!!!

Juan: SAME WITH THE BELL!!!!!!!

Chrissy & Lilly: WE’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

It wasn’t long until Katie Belle and her train steamed into the downtown area of the city. Chrissy and Lilly took turns blowing the whistle and ringing the bell as the sounds echoed throughout the city. All of the city locals came running out to see the Crimson Dragon for one last time before she was to return home.
Chris gently applied the brakes before gently closing Katie Belle’s throttle and slowing her down to a full and complete stop.
Chris and Chrissy gave one loud blast on the whistle before climbing out of Katie Belle’s cab along with Juan and Lilly. Everyone else then disembarked the train as Phil pulled up along side with the new Crimson Dragon.

Phil: Couldn’t let you leave without saying good bye.

Chris: We wouldn’t do that.

Phil: Bob and I already parted ways. He misses his wife, kids, and grand children, so it’s understandable that he left early.

Chris: Yeah, and I get that. Big Joe and the other guys also left to get a head start on the move to LA.

Phil: That is a long ways away, so I can respect that. But anyways, Trevor and Eric wanted to say good bye before you return home as well.

Trevor: Not just Eric and I, but Erika, Sarah, and Haley did as well.

Erika: Chris, you’re amazing!!!

Sarah: You’re my hero!!!

Haley: I wish more guys were like you!!!

Chris: Thanks girls, but know that, you’re teamed up with good guys.

Chrissy: That’s right girls, and pretty soon, you’ll be going through crazy adventures like us.

Lexi: But be sure to keep a leash on your guys though.

Lilly: We almost lost Chris, and it was almost too much for us to bare.

Chris: And I almost lost Katie Belle, so be sure to take good care for your engine, the L.A. Mandez. She’s a good engine, and deserves the same TLC that Katie Belle gets.

Trevor: We still can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for us.

Eric: It blows me away to know that we’re living in a beautiful palace, own a beautiful train, and know that we have a lot of machines and tools to work on our train.

Trevor: Not to mention that our train lives in a beautiful Museum practically.

Chris: Yep, she practically does with all the old artifacts, parts, components, pictures, portraits, paintings, as well as the new tunnel wall that we put in.

Eric: Yep, and it looks amazing!!!

Chris: It won’t be as cramped now that your train is the only one living in there.

Lexi: Okay girls, we may not have known each other for very long, but I know that our friendship will always be forever.

Erika: I know, I feel the same way.

Chrissy: And remember, you should tell Trevor how you feel.

Erika: *BLUSHES BRIGHT RED* WHAT???!!!!

Chrissy: I can tell that you like him, so you should tell him while you have the chance. I almost didn’t have the chance to tell Chris how I felt because I almost lost him in the accident.

Lexi: And I almost lost him twice given that he almost died in an avalanche years ago.

Lilly: Yeah, so don’t be afraid to tell him how you feel. And know that you 2 will always be friends.

Chrissy: Same thing for your feelings for Eric, Sarah.

Sarah: WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I LIKE HIM???!!!! *BLUSHES*

Lexi: It’s written all over you.

Lilly: And I have a feeling that everything will work out.

Haley: We also see you as part of our cheerleading squad so we got you girls uniforms, and we have 2 extras for you Nina and Wendy.

Nina & Wendy: AWESOME!!!! THANK YOU!!!! WE ARE SO JOINING A SQUAD IN CALIFORNIA!!!

Haley: Is that where you’re going?!!!

Chris: Yep. I’ve applied to work for Disney as a Mickey & Friends Tram driver.

Alex: And I’ve applied to work at Knott’s Berry Farm.

Aaron: Also a lot of our friends’ families live in California.

Haley: LUCKY!!!! I WANNA GO!!!!

Erika: I have a feeling you will someday. ☺

Sarah: Same here!!!

Chris: Well, lets go get dinner, dessert, and drinks to go before we head on our way.

Lexi: That sounds great Chris!!!

Chrissy: I’m all for it!!!

Juan: Pizza & cakes anyone???!!!!

Chris: You know us well!!!! I’ll take care of it, and this time, Mike will have to spend his own money on booze. LOL!!!

Mike: Hey, fine by me. I need to get more of the “Coffee!”

Chris: Coffee as in?.............

Mike: YEP!!! THAT!!!!

Chris: Just don’t let my sister catch you………..

Mike: Got it!!!

Mike then runs off to get his booze, while everyone else walks off to get their favorite pizzas and cakes. It isn’t long until everyone returns and places their dinner and deserts in the parlor cars of their trains while Mike returned with his booze.

Phil: We wish you guys wouldn’t have to leave.

Chris: We’d love to stay, but we must return to our world and get our lives on track.

Erika: We’ll miss you guys, especially you Chris.

Haley: It’s no wonder Lexi and Chrissy are in love with you.

Sarah: And you girls taught us so much, our squad is bound to win the next competition.

Trevor: And thanks to you, I know we will take care of our train no problem.

Eric: We’ve learned so much, and we’re gonna learn so much more.

Lilly: And Haley, it’ll be a matter of time before boys start falling for you.

Haley: I hope so………….

Lilly: It will happen; I just know it will.

Just then Aleasha appeared for the last time.

Aleasha: Once again Chris, Juan, Mike, Alex, Aaron, Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy, thank you so very much for everything you have done. Our Magical Railway is thriving thanks to you, and the Dark Railway is gone for good. Also the magic as you’ve assured us will never end.

Chris: Thank you for your help Aleasha. We couldn’t have defeated the Dark Railway without you.

Aleasha: My pleasure, and now thanks to you, we can keep on going. We have a new Crimson Dragon that will soon awaken, while both the original, and current Crimson Dragons are in good hands.

Chris: That they are.

Lexi: I’m so very proud of you Chris, and I always have been.

Chrissy: As am I baby.

Both Lexi and Chrissy then wrapped their arms around Chris, and took turns kissing him on the lips.

Lexi & Chrissy: We love you, so very much.

Chris: And I love you too.

Erika, Sarah, and Haley: AAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!

Erika: It’s really beautiful.

Sarah: Lexi’s in love with her brother.

Haley: And she’s not afraid to show it.

Erika: And Chrissy really loves him too.

Sarah: He also loves her in return.

Haley: Those girls know what they want, and they have it. Now Erika and Sarah, you really should confess.

Erika & Sarah: *BLUSH BRIGHT RED* WE WILL, OKAY HALEY!!!! JUST DON’T RUSH US!!!!

Trevor: We’ll miss you Chris.

Eric: And it’s sad to see you go.

Chris: I’ll miss you too, but I promise that we will return someday.

Phil: And we look forward to your return.

Lexi: And no matter what girls, we’re friends forever!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, and Wendy then hugged Erika, Sarah, and Haley along with the other cheerleaders before giving a final cheer and climbing aboard Katie Belle’s train.

Aleasha: I’ll send you through a Magical Portal that will send you straight to California. You’ll be at your destination first thing in the morning.

Chris: Thank you very much Aleasha.

Chris then picked up his own medium pineapple, sausage, ham, and Canadian Bacon with extra sauce pizza, blood orange soda, cherry coke, and slice of Princess cake before climbing into Katie Belle’s cab.

Lexi: Good bye girls!!!!

Cheerleaders: We’ll miss you Lexi!!!

Lexi was the last one to board the train as she made her way to the front open air car behind the locomotive, and Chrissy joined her while everyone else ate their meal in the coaches and parlor car.

Chris: Alrighty, this song helps me out on long haul drives, so lets hope it works on this overnighter.

Chris then plugged in his Iphone and MacBook Air lap top computer before selecting Fleetwood Mac’s Top Tune’s Karaoke version of Sara, and putting on full blast. Chris then picked up the microphone.

Chris: Alrighty everyone, what is the word.

Everyone on the train and in the city: ALL ABOARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: HIGH BALL!!!!!!!!

The music kicked into gear as Chris gave 2 blasts on the whistle, released the brakes, eased the throttle open, and Katie Belle steamed out as multiple people cheered and waved as the Crimson Dragon departed for home.

Chris: Sit back, relax, and enjoy your ride to California because it’s a direct overnight trip.

Katie Belle then steamed out of the city, along the coast line by the lake while puffing out gold smoke as her firebox glow reflected off the lake water as it lit up the night along with the lake water, trees, and plant life.
Chris notched the Johnson bar until it was almost center and opened the throttle until it was 3 quarters of being wide open. Katie Belle was soon highballing along the track at a whopping 50 miles per hour as she steamed along the coast line, over bridges, and through tunnels.
Lexi and Chrissy blew kisses as Chris stood in the side doorways of Katie Belle’s cab as she steamed along the line.

Chris: This is for you girls!

Chris’s response to the kisses was through ringing Katie Belle’s beautiful bell, and giving the 4 whistle grade crossing signal with a…………


WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: WE LOVE YOU CHRIS!!!!

Chris responded with one long blast followed by 2 short blasts on the whistle.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO, WHOOO!!!!!

Chris: Likewise girls!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: GOOD NIGHT CHRIS!!!

Lexi and Chrissy then blew another set of kisses to Chris before walking back to the parlor car for the night.
Katie Belle then steamed over a tress bridge and Chris gave the 4 whistle grade crossing blast and rang her bell before she steamed into a long tunnel. Chris then gave the 4 whistle grade crossing blast on the whistle and rang the bell again as Katie Belle steamed through the tunnel just as a massive portal opened.

Chris: AWESOME!!!!! ALRIGHT!!!!!!!!

Chris then gave one long blast followed by a short blast on the whistle with a………

WHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOO!!!!!

Katie Belle steamed through the portal and out of the tunnel. Katie Belle and her train were finally back in the real world and in California.

Chris: YEAH!!!!!! ALRIGHT!!!!!!!

Aleasha: Good bye Chris, and thank you!!!!! We will meet again someday, Crimson Dragon.

Chris: And thank you Aleasha!!! Well, now that that is over, it’s time to eat.

Chris then sat down in his seat, and enjoyed his pizza as Katie Belle steamed off into the night. Chris and his friends were finally back in the real world and were on their way to starting their new lives in California.

Chapter 24

A New Chapter Begins

Six months have since passed since the events of the Magical Railway took place.  Katie Belle and her sister San Juan were special featured exhibits of the beautiful and brand new state of the art Southern California State Railroad Museum in Pasadena while McCloud 18, UP 4466, and the Graham County Shay 1925 handled the weekend excursions on the branch line.  All of the locomotives, and equipment from the Travel Town Museum were completely restored and beautifully displayed in the new museum, but it was the Crimson Dragon sisters who were the stars, with the Torch Lake locomotive from Greenfield Village coming to make a visit for a special steam up of the 3 Mason Bogie engines.
Chris got the job at the Disneyland Resort as a Tram driver while Aaron got a job at Disneyland as a Tram RT, but both Chris and Aaron plan on becoming locomotive engineers on the Disneyland Railroad.  Alex got his job at Knotts Berry Farm as a ride operator, but has plans on becoming a locomotive engineer on the Calico Ghost Town Railroad.  Lexi became the captain of her new cheerleading squad in no time with Chrissy and Lilly as her co-captains.  Nina and Wendy followed their word and became cheerleaders for their middle school.  Juan and Lilly got engaged during Disneyland’s premier of its new beautiful Paint The Night Electrical Parade.  As for Mike, he and his brother bought a mansion right next door to Alex & Aarons, whose mansion was next door to Juans, whose Mansion was next door to Chris, whose mansion is next door to Bob’s, whose Mansion is next door to Big Joes, whose mansion was next door to Roberts, and all of them built the largest G scale garden railroad in existence.  Who knew that they’d all find brand new build foreclosed Mansions that were incomplete, and only 20 minutes away from Anaheim and Buena Park.  Everyone was living the new life they have desired for a long time.
Well, the morning was Friday October 26, which just happened to be Chris’s 25th birthday and Lexi’s 18th Birthday, but it was all utter chaos as usual in the Mandez household.

*GIRLS SCREAMING LIKE CRAZY*

Lexi & Chrissy: SHIT!!!! WHERE THE HELL ARE OUR BIKINI SPANKIES???!!!!!!

Chris: GOD, NOT THIS AGAIN???!!!!!!  I HAVE WORK IN AN HOUR!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: FOUND THEM!!!! NOW WE NEED OUR HAIR RIBBONS!!!!!

Chris: GOT THEM RIGHT HERE GIRLS, AND YOUR EYE GLITTER TOO!!!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: OH MY GOD!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRIS!!!! YOU’RE A LIFE SAVER!!!!

Chris: I worry about you girls because every morning of a competition, you always lose your sanity, as well as important parts of your cheer uniforms.

Lexi: We’re girls, we can’t help it!!!

Chrissy: Yeah, we overreact and cause drama, and we know this can cause stress on you too.

Chris: After what we’ve been through, I’ve gotten used to it.

Lexi: Almost losing you was WAY TOO MUCH for me to handle, so this is nothing for me now. *Giggles*

Chrissy: And have we ever told you that you look HOT in your Disney uniform?

Chris: I’ve heard it multiple times, but you girls also look cute in your new cheerleading uniforms as well. I also love the dark blood and crimson red colors.

Lexi & Chrissy: AWWWWWWW!!!! Thank you so very much Chris!!!!  And you’re right, these red colors do look amazing!!!! Red is our favorite color after all. *Giggles*

Chris: It’s mine too, so all the more reason to love your new uniforms.  By the way, what time does your competition end again?

Lexi & Chrissy: We’re off at 1:45, and the bus takes us to Disneyland at 2:15.

Chris: Perfect, I start at 6:45 and am off at 3:15 and it’s the same with Aaron.

Lexi & Chrissy: THAT’S GREAT!!!!

Chris: Yep.  Which mean’s you’ll catch me before I get off, and once after I’m off, I can join you girls.

Lexi & Chrissy: Yeah, well the girls and I won’t go in without.  We’ll hang out in Downtown Disney for a while and when you’re off, we’ll all go in together.

Chris: Sounds like a good plan.  And since you got your driver’s license last week Lexi, why don’t you drive the old girl?

Lexi: You know I’m bad at driving a stick shift.  I’m still amazed that I passed my driver’s test on my first try just like you did.

Chris: Don’t worry, Volvagia will correct your mistakes if you make any.

Lexi: Well duh, she did that for me so I’d pass my driver’s test.  

Chris, Lexi, and Chrissy then walked into the garage as Lilly, came over.

Chrissy: Hey Sissy!!!

Lilly: Hey Sissy!!!!

Chrissy: Are you ready for today’s cheer competition?

Lilly: It couldn’t come soon enough!!! *Giggles*

Just then Aaron drove up with Nina and Wendy.

Aaron: Well, today’s a big day.

Chris: You got that right.  LOL!!!!

Chris, Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly then got in Volvagia and buckled up their safety belts.  Lexi then depressed the clutch, turned over the engine, shifted into first gear, and slowly but smoothly drove Volvagia out of the garage and onto the road.  

Chris: You’re getting MUCH better at this.  There’s really no need to worry.

Lexi: You’re right; I still worry about miss-shifting or stalling though.

Chris: I was worried too, but once you get used to it, driving a stickshift becomes second nature.

Lexi then managed to shift gears and drive safely without worry, but Aaron took off flying down the road.

Lexi: WOW!!!!!  How fast is he going?

Chris: The speed limit is 35 miles per hour, but he’s going probably 45, which is how fast I normally go in a 35 to keep up, but there’s no need for you to go fast.    That will come over time when you’re more comfortable driving on the road.

Lexi: Okay.

Chris: Don’t worry Lil Sis, you’re doing just fine.  Old girl, a little confidence boost please?

Volvagia: BEEP, BEEP!!!!

Volvagia then picked up a little speed to help Lexi get more comfortable.

Lexi: 40!!!! This faster than I’d like to go.

Chris: Again don’t worry.

Chrissy: You’re a good driver Lexi, and 5 miles per hour over the speed limit isn’t gonna get you in trouble.

Chris: I’ve gone a lot faster than that, and still haven’t been caught, but Dad though….. LOL!!!! His constant driving over 130 miles an hour in his Mercedes got him so many speeding tickets that it’s not even funny. LOL!!!!!

Lexi: *Giggles* I remember that!!! Mom scolded him so many times that I couldn’t help but laugh.

Chris: And I went 115 miles per hour on the highway and still didn’t get caught, but Dad got caught almost every time he went over 100. LOL!!!!

Lexi and Chris were laughing so hard that Lexi forgot how tense she was, and they had a nice, relaxing, and safe drive over to the Anaheim Convention Center with plenty of time to spare.

Chris: Awesome driving Lil Sis!!! I still have 15 minutes to spare which is plenty of time.

Lexi: Thank you so much Big brother.  I can’t wait to finally introduce you to all the girls.

Chrissy: Neither can I.  

Lilly: We brag about you a lot to the other girls so much that they’ve all been dying to meet you.

Chris: Awesome.  I look forward to meeting your new friends. ☺

Lexi: Also Big Brother……….

Chris: Yes?

Chrissy: If it’s not too much to ask, but if we do well in the competition………..

Lexi: Like with my gymnastics competition when I was 8……………….

Lilly: Will you give us a kiss?.............................

Lexi & Chrissy: And on the lips…………………….

Lilly: On the cheek and forehead is fine for me since I have Juan.

Chris: You got it girls, it’s a promise.

Everyone then gets out of Volvagia and Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly give Chris and hug and a kiss before they meet up with Nina and Wendy and enter the convention center to get ready for their competition.  
Chris then gets back in Volvagia, and drives off to the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure to begin his day’s work on the Mickey & Friends Tram.
Chris then shows up to work right on time along with Aaron where they meet with manager Andrew.

Manager Andrew: Good Morning Chris and Aaron.  Today both parks are open until mid-night, we are going to have over 30 buses, 5 of which are those from the cheerleading competition at the Convention center which will be showing up between 1-3 O-clock this afternoon.  Tram 5 is gonna be your tram for the duration of your shift, so if you can please check it over and put in service right away, that would be great.  And if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Chris & Aaron: Alrighty, thanks for letting us know.

Manager Andrew: No problem, and Chris……

Chris: Yes?

Manager Andrew: Happy Birthday man.  You’re the big 25?

Chris: Yep!!!

Manager Andrew: That is a GREAT AGE Man!!!  You’re in for some really good times.  I hope you have a great Birthday and if I’m not mistaken, isn’t your sister in the cheerleading competition on one of the buses?

Chris: Yes she is and today’s her birthday too.  She just turned the Big 18!!!

Manager Andrew: THAT’S AWESOME!!! We need to do something special for her.

Chris: I already have everything planned out.  Once I’m off my shift, I plan on going in with her and her friends as a guest, and give her a magical time until the parks close.

Manager Andrew: That sounds like a good plan, and I hope you 2 have fun in the parks later on today.

Chris: Thank you, we will.

Manager Andrew then checks in with other Tram cast members as Chris and Aaron start up Tram number 5 and check her over from bumper to bumper.

Chris: Everything looks good so far, we’ll take her for a spin, tell Andrew that everything’s okay, and put her in service.

Aaron: Awesome, sounds good!!!!

Chris and Aaron then climb aboard their tram and take her for a drive.  Everything seems to be working just fine, the tractor’s engine and transmission were running and shifting smoothly, the PA system was working loud and clearly, and the tram brakes were working properly.  
After one run on the tram route, Chris and Aaron contacted manager Andrew and told him that everything checked out perfectly with their tram.

Manager Andrew: Awesome!!! Good to hear, now put it in service and get to work!!!

Chris: We’ll do!!! ☺

With that Chris and Aaron set to work and go about their day on their tram.  Meanwhile Lexi, Chrissy, and Nina along with their squad manage to make it into the finals.

Lexi: Okay girls, AWESOME work so far!!!!

Chrissy: You’ve come such a long ways since we first begun!!!!

Lilly: And we know we can beat the others!!!!

Lexi: This is the last day of a long and brutal competition, but we are in the TOP 4!!!!

Chrissy: But we can make it to the TOP 2!!!!  WE KNOW YOU CAN DO IT GIRLS!!!!

Lilly: Chrissy, Lexi, and I believe in all of you!!!!

Just then 3 familiar friends show up.

Brittany: LEXI?????!!!!!

Ashley: CHRISSY?????!!!!

Katelynn: LILLY??????!!!!!!

Lexi: KATELYNN????!!!!!!

Chrissy: BRITTANY????!!!!!!!

Lilly: ASHLEY?????!!!!!!!!!

Cheerleaders: OH MY GOD!!!!!! IT’S BEEN SUCH A LONG TIME!!!!!

All 6 girls them jumped for joy before running up and hugging one another.

Lexi: KATELYNN!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU???!!!!!!

Katelynn: LEXI!!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU???!!!!

Lexi: Long story!!!!

Katelynn: I have time!!!

Lexi: Well, Chris and I lost Alexis in a car accident and we also lost our parents in a plane crash, but it gets crazier from their.

Lexi then continues to tell the girls all about her adventure with her last cheerleading competition along with her journey to the magical world, along with the fierce battle with The Dark Railway, and their new start in California.

Lexi: So yeah. LOL!!!  That’s pretty much what happened.

Katelynn: WOW!!! THAT IS CRAZY!!!!

Lexi: Anyways, what made you quit the squad and cut ties with Chris?

Katelynn: Well, my brother Dillon wound up in jail, my dad got abusive with me and my mom, so he was admitted to a mental hospital, and it was just too much for me to bare.  I sure hope Chris doesn’t hate me for not talking to him.  I still love him very much.

Lexi: As do Chrissy and I.

Chrissy: Chris and I have been going out for the past 6 months, and he’s been nothing but wonderful to me.  I love him so very much, and it’s like we instantly connect.

Katelynn: I’m glad to hear that he’s with someone as wonderful as you Chrissy.  He deserves someone to love and care for him like you.  Not like me who wound up being neglectful.

Chrissy: Hey, that’s not true.  You loved him, but you had drama in your life.  And even though you’re not together anymore, you 2 can still be friends.

Katelynn: You really think so?

Chrissy: I do.  

Katelynn: I’ll give it a try, but just promise me one thing.

Chrissy: Yes?

Katelynn: Promise me you’ll take good care of him.

Chrissy: I will, you can count on me.

Lexi: And me too!!!

Chrissy: And I’m sure you know that Lexi has been in love with him since she was 8.

Lexi: CHRISSY!!!!!!

Katelynn, Brittany, and Ashley: *GIGGLES*  We’ve known that for a very long time!!!  We knew right off the bat that she’s had feelings for him, and after hearing her story of her first kiss; we put the puzzle together. LOL!!!

Lexi: Well, you’ll be seeing him again after the competition because he now works for Disney, and he drives the tram!!!!

Katelynn, Brittany, and Ashley: WHAT???!!!!!

Chrissy: Yep, but today will be our first time actually seeing him work!!!

Katelynn, Brittany, and Ashley: OH MY GOD!!!!! WE SO CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

Lilly: I KNOW, IT’S SO COOL!!!!

Nina & Wendy: AND OUR BROTHER AARON IS WORKING WITH HIM TOO!!!!

Chrissy: IT’s something to look forward to after this competition.

Katelynn, Brittany, and Ashley: YEAH!!!!!

Lexi: BUT KNOW THAT THIS COMPETITION BELONGS TO ME AND MY SQUAD!!!!

Brittany: NA-AH!!!!!! IT BELONGS TO ME AND MY SQUAD!!!!!

Katelynn, Brittany, and Ashley: LEXI, CHRISSY, AND LILLY WE’RE TAKING YOU DOWN!!!!!  ALSO RED ISN’T YOUR COLOR; SWITCH BACK TO WHITE!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly: REALLY???!!!!  CHRIS TOLD US THAT HE LOVED THE NEW RED UNIFORMS, SO BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!

And with that, the competition continued and things got fierce between the top 4 squads until the last 2 squads remained, and those last 2 squads were…………………
You guessed it, Brittany’s and Lexi’s squads.

Lexi: OKAY, THIS IS IT!!!!

Brittany: YOU MAYBE GOOD LEXI, WE KNOW YOU’RE DATING YOUR BROTHER, BUT THERE IS NO WAY YOU ARE DEFEATING MY SQUAD!!!!

Lexi: DID YOU REALLY HAVE TO GO THAT LOW???!!!!!

Katelynn: Like brother like sister.  *Giggles*  Some of his sassy attitude has really rubbed off on her. LOL!!!

Chrissy: I know, it’s so cute!!!!  

Katelynn: And is she really dating Chris along with you?

Chrissy: Yep, and I’m sorry, but this relation only has room for 2 girls, 3 is a crowd!!!

Katelynn: WE’LL SEE ABOUT THAT!!!!

Chrissy & Katelynn: WE’LL SEE WHOSE THE RIGHTFUL GIRLFRIEND FOR CHRIS!!!!!

Ashley: THAT’S IT LITTLE LILLY!!!!!  YOU’RE GOING DOWN!!!!

Lilly: DON’T MAKE ME UNLEASH THE QUICHE FART!!!!!!

Ashley: OH, I’M REALLY SCARED!!!!!!!

Lexi & Brittany: 1,2,3,4…………..

Katelynn & Chrissy: 5, 6, 7,8…………

Ashley & Lilly: 9, 10, 11, 12…………

Cheerleaders: 13, 14, 15, 16, 17!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! READY, OKAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And with that, the competition was underway, and things got firey between the cheerleaders.
Meanwhile, Chris and Aaron were enjoying a nice easy shift on their tram.  Nothing out of the ordinary happened, until……

Aaron: Driver please hold!!!!

Chris slammed on the brakes and parks the tram in an empty and unused loading area because Aaron spotted someone with a selfie stick sticking out the side of the tram.
Chris then put his tram in Neutral and locked on the tractor and carriage parking brakes before climbing out of the tractor cab while Aaron walked off his RT platform.  Both Chris and Aaron then got mad as they confronted the guest about the selfie stick.

Chris & Aaron: Selfie sticks are not allowed on the resort property, and that includes the Mickey & Friends Tram!!!  So please either put it away and turn it into the security at the main gate entrance, or we’ll confiscate it!!!!

Guest: WHAT???!!!!! THIS IS REDICULOUS???!!!! WHY ARE SELFIE STICKS BANNED FROM THE RESORT???!!!!!

Chris & Aaron: Because of an incident that happened on California Screamin that required the roller coaster to be shut down for 2 hours and guests to be emergency evacuated.  Not only that but they also pose as a weapon and can hurt someone!!!

Guest: WHAT THE FUCK???!!!!! THIS IS RETARDED!!!! I’M NOT PUTTING MY SELFIE STICK AWAY!!!!!!  LET ME SPEAK TO A MANAGER!!!!!

Chris & Aaron: Very well, because this Tram isn’t going anywhere until you put it away.

Chris: I’m the driver, and the tram can’t drive itself.

Aaron: And I’m the RT, and the driver can’t drive without my clearance.

Guest: WHAT????!!!!!!! THIS IS STUPID, YOU ARE FAR TO YOUNG AND IMMATURE TO BE DRIVING THIS THING, AND YOU’RE FAR TOO YOUNG TO BE OPERATING FROM THE REAR TOO!!!!!

Chris & Aaron: Very well, you leave us no choice.

Chris then gets on his radio in the tractor and contacts Manager Andrew right away.  Manager Andrew then comes walking over to resolve and defuse the situation.

Manager Andrew: Hey guys, what’s up?

Chris & Aaron: A selfie stick is what’s holding us up and all of the other guests are getting angry.

Guest: COME ON!!!!

Guest: PUT IT AWAY ALREADY!!!!!!

Guest: WE HAD TO LEAVE OURS IN OUR CAR BECAUSE OF THIS RUEL!!!!!!

Guest: AND WE LEFT OURS AT HOME BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT WE’LL GET IN TROUBLE BECAUSE OF THIS!!!!!

Guests: AND IF WE CAN’T BRING OURS IN, WHY SHOULD YOU BE ALOUD TO STICK YOURS OUT THE SIDE OF THE TRAM???!!!!!! AND WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO INSULT THESE FINE GENTLEMEN!!!!!

Guest: HOW ON EARTH IS A SELFIE STICK A SAFETY HAZARD????!!!!! IT’S FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!!!

Manager Andrew: Excuse me, but please watch what you’re saying.  There are children on board, and they shouldn’t be hearing such things.  Also selfie sticks are banned because they easily jab and hurt someone given that they could be used as a weapon.  We also don’t allow objects that resemble weapons such as toy guns or swords.  Not even light sabers and for that same reason.  Toy Magic Wands are the closest things we allow, and we only allow umbrellas in when it’s actually raining.

Guest: WHAT???!!!!!! ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT!!!!!!

Manager Andrew: If you won’t cooperate, or stop this, I’m afraid I may have to remove you from the premises.

Guest: YOU KNOW WHAT; I’LL LEAVE!!!!! THIS IS JUST SUCH BULLSHIT!!!! THE HAPPIEST AND MOST MAGICAL PLACE, YEAH RIGHT!!!! THANKS FOR NOTHING!!!!!!  

The disruptive guest then gets out of the tram and walks back to the garage.  Manager Andrew then gets on the radio with security.

Manager Andrew: Security, we have a disruptive guest with a selfie stick whose returning to their vehicle.  Be sure to get the person’s ID, and make sure this individual does not step foot on this resort ever again.

Manager Andrew then gets off the radio and apologizes.

Manager Andrew: We’re terribly sorry for that disruption everyone, but we can’t have selfie sticks compromise your safety.  And we’re also sorry for the person’s rude behavior.

Guests: It’s okay, it wasn’t your fault.

Chris: Now that that’s settled, whose ready for some fun???!!!!!!

Guests: WE ARE!!!!!!

Aaron: Whose ready for some Magic???!!!!!!

Guests: WE ARE!!!!!!

Manager Andrew: THEN LET THE MAGIC BEGIN BECAUSE YOUR JOURNEY TO THE MAGIC BEGINS NOW!!!!!

Guests: YAY!!!!!!!

Manager Andrew: Thank you so very much for catching that you 2.  We certainly enjoy having you 2 around.

Chris: Of course, we have a blast working here.

Aaron: We can’t get enough of it.

Manager Andrew: Awesome!!! Well, if you need me again, don’t hesitate to let me know.

Chris & Aaron: Will do!!!!

Chris then gets back in the Tram’s tractor cab while Aaron gets back on his RT platform, and the 2 set back to work and get the tram back into motion at once.  Their shift continues without any further incident.
Meanwhile, the cheerleading competition and come to its conclusion and Lexi’s cheerleading squad came out victorious.

Lexi: I AM SO VERY PROUD OF YOU GIRLS!!!!

Chrissy: NEVER THOUGHT WE’D GET FIRST PLACE DID YOU!!!!

Lilly: THIS IS SO AMAZING!!!!!  WAIT UNTIL CHRIS SEES THIS!!!!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: THAT’S MEANS WE’RE GETTING THAT KISS!!!!!!!!!!

Brittany & Katelynn: You girls did good, but we’ll beat you next time.

Lilly: Hey, hey!!!! 2nd place isn’t bad.  

Ashley: Easy for you to say!!!!!  You girls got first!!!!!

Brittany: Well, the better team won, so congratulations Lexi.

Katelynn: And Chris is very lucky to have you as his girlfriend Chrissy.  There’s no other girl I’d rather have him with other than you if it couldn’t be me.  You’ve been a good friend for a long time, and I trust you more than anyone.

Ashley: Lets compete again, because you and your team are really good.

Lilly: Yeah!!!! And I look forward to when we compete again!!!

Lexi: And with that girls, TIME TO GO TO DISNEYLAND AND MEET MY BROTHER!!!!!!!!

Cheerleaders: YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!

And with that all of the girls storm off to the buses and climb aboard then one by one each bus takes off for the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure.
Meanwhile Chris and Aaron were enjoying their last company break as they were watching the last few minutes of Love It Or List It.

Chris: Whoops!!!!!  We were late for our break. LOL!!!

Aaron: Time flies by so fast that you lose track of it. LOL!!!!

Chris: Yep, and besides that disruptive guest with the selfie stick, our shift is going by pretty smoothly.

Aaron: Yep.  We normally face much worse during the night shift.

Chris: Don’t even remind me on how much of a mess the night shift is.

Aaron: Fortunately after working here for 6 months, we get a little more say in where and when we want to work.

Chris: Though our seniority still perishes to most of those who have been here, we’re still in a fairly good position.

Just then Chris and Aaron heard the buses full of rowdy cheerleaders come in.

Chris: Well, the girls will be here soon, and our last break is over so time for us to get back to work.  Our tram should be here soon.

Aaron: Yep.  

Chris and Aaron then leave their break area and walk back out to the loading zone to wait for their tram.  

Manager Andrew walks over to them to give them further instruction.

Manager Andrew: I’m terribly sorry that your breaks were late, but we were very short staffed and I couldn’t pull your tram out of service.  However, you guys have one more trip to go before you clock out, and the next crew should be here soon.  If their not, worst case, just park your tram in the parking lot and green tag it for the next crew.   Tim and Manny should be here with your tram any minute.

Just then a bunch of cheerleaders came running over to the tram loading zones as Chris saw Tim and Manny come in with Tram 5.
Chris was trying so hard not to laugh when he saw Tim cramped up in the Tram tractor with his back hunched over, his face up against the windshield, his knees going into his chin, and his arms going around his knees to get to the steering wheel while Aaron was trying hard not to laugh as he saw Manny tap dancing and beat boxing on the back of the tram.

Chris: I don’t know what’s funnier, Tim driving the tram or Manny dancing and beat boxing on the back of it.

Just then Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Nina, Wendy, Brittany, Katelynn, and Ashely come running up to Chris and Aaron.

Chris & Aaron: UH-OH!!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, Lilly, Katelynn, Brittany, and Ashley: CHRIS!!!!!!

Wendy & Nina: AARON!!!!!!

Lexi, Chrissy, and Lilly then tackle Chris to the ground and kiss him left and right all over his face as Wendy and Nina do the same to Aaron.

Chris: COME ON!!!! GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lexi: YOU WON’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!

Chrissy: OUR SQUAD WON FIRST PLACE!!!!!!

Lilly: WE REALLY WANTED THAT REWARD KISS YOU PROMISED!!!!!!!!

Brittany: YEAH, THEY BEAT US GOOD!!!!!

Katelynn: YOUR GIRLFRIEND IS CRAZY ABOUT YOU!!!!!

Ashley: BUT WE’LL GET THEM NEXT TIME!!!!!!

Chris: THAT’S AWESOME GIRLS CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

Lexi: THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH BIG BROTHER!!!!!

Just then Manager Andrew walked up, and greeted everyone warmly.

Manager Andrew: Hello everyone and welcome.  We’ll put you on the next available tram in just a moment so………

Just then Tim drove up with Tram 5 in the loading zone as Manny continued to tap dance and beat box.

Tram RT Manny: LADIES & GENTLEMEN, BOYS & GIRLS!!!!! WHILE THE TRAM IS APPROACHING………..PLEASE REMAIN BEHIND THAT YELLOW SAFETY LINE…….AND PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BOARD THE TRAM WHILE IT IS………..STILL IN MOTION……………….WAIT FOR IT………..WAIT FOR IT…………..WAIT FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!    WELCOME ABOARD, PLEASE LOWER YOUR HEAD AND WATCH YOUR STEP!!!!!!!!!

Aaron: MANNY!!!! Quit dancing and beat boxing back there!!!! YOU LOOK REDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!


Tram RT Manny: I HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM REALLY BAD!!!!!!!! CAN YOU PLEASE TAKE OVER?  THANK YOU!!!!!! GOOD BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Manny then throws the microphone at Aaron as he jumps off the RT platform and takes off running for the bathroom.
All of the girls then burst out laughing after seeing what they just saw as well as watching Tim climbing out of the Tram Tractor cab.

Tim: You find that funny, eh??!!!! LOL!!!!

Chris: You kinda look like Donkey Kong in a Go-Kart!!! LOL!!!!

Tim: Oh, I Never heard that before!!!! LOL!!!!!  Then again I am the only driver who is as tall as 6 foot 10, so it looks kind of funny. LOL!!!!!

Manager Andrew: Alright Tim, please catch Tram number 2 because the driver needs to go home, and when Manny gets out of the bathroom, let him know.

Tim: You got it.

Chris: Well girls, this is my assigned Tram for today, Tram 5, and she just got out from being rebuilt.  This I believe is her second day back in service…………..

Manager Andrew: Yep, you are correct!

Chris: And when I first started here, I saw this Tram tractor in thousands of pieces all over the shop floor, and to see it working right now, and to drive it is pretty awesome.

Lexi: THAT IS GREAT!!!!!!  HEY GIRLS!!!!! THIS IS MY BROTHER WHO I WAS TALKING ABOUT, AND HE’S DRIVING OUR TRAM!!!!!!!

Chrissy: AND HE’S MY BOYFRIEND TOO!!!!!!!

Manager Andrew: Hello Young Lady, you must be Chris’s little sister Lexi, the birthday girl.  

Lexi: Yes I am.

Manager Andrew: Chris has told us a lot about you and he wasn’t lying when he said that you were very pretty.

Lexi: *Blushes*  Oh please, stop.  You’re making me blush. *Giggles*

Manager Andrew: I’m Andrew and I’m one of the managers here, and we have something very special planned for your birthday.  You’re the Big 18 today!!!

Lexi: Yes, I am.

Manager Andrew: EVERYBODY!!!!!  LETS WISH CHRIS AND HIS LITTLE SISTER LEXI A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!

Everyone: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRIS & LEXI!!!!

Manager Andrew: And because this day is very special for you, here are some special buttons for you.  

Manager Andrew then hands Lexi a Happily Ever After Button along with a Honorary Citizen Button, and an I’m Celebrating Button.

Manager Andrew: Chris has one more just for you.

Chris: Here you go Lil Sis, I just had to put the magical touches on it.

Chris then handed Lexi her birthday button and Lexi noticed the tiny Mickey Mouse ears on the dot of the I at the end of her name.

Chris: Also, I didn’t forget your present.

Chris then handed Lexi an authentic Disney Princess Tiara and gently placed it on her head before gently French kissing her on the lips like he had promised.

Chris: Happy Birthday Lil Sis.  

Lexi: Thank you so very much Chris, though I feel awful for not getting you anything.

Chris: Don’t be, because you really are the best birthday present ever.  Having a baby sister on my birthday was the best thing I ever received, and having you as my little sister is my real birthday present.

Multiple tears began to pour down Lexi’s face as she cried for she hadn’t heard those words in a long time.

Lexi: OH CHRIS!!!!!!!!  That means so much to me.

Lexi then jumped up and kissed Chris multiple times on the lips and on the cheek and forehead.

Cheerleaders: AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris: Also you’ll be happy to hear this, but this will be my last trip for the day, so right after this trip, I’ll go back stage, chance into my normal clothes, and join you in the park.

Lexi: I so can’t wait.  Thank you so very much Chris.  I Love you!!!

Chris:  I love you too Lexi And just for you, I’ll give you a special tour of the Tram Tractor cab, if it’s okay with Andrew.

Manager Andrew: Of course.

Chris then handed Lexi his spare safety vest and took her to the front of the Tram tractor and showed her the inside.

Chris: As you can see it’s very similar to Volvagia, but slightly more cramped.

Lexi: Okay, now driving this would scare me.  Heck, I don’t think I’d reach the pedals. LOL!!!

Chris: It’s really not that hard; these trams are VERY easy to steer, though the brakes can be a little weird.  This one though is a REALLY NICE Tram and is more forgiving than the others.  Then again, she was just rebuilt, so she’s practically brand new.
Speaking of which.

Chris then takes Lexi over to the side of the Tram Tractor, pops open the engine bay hood, and shows her along with everyone else the massive 4 cylinder compressed natural gas engine that powers the Tram.

Chris: All shiny and brand new underneath.  

Lexi: WOW!!!! THIS IS SO COOL!!!!  I couldn’t be happier than seeing you happy like this, and to know that our relationship has rebuilt itself in such a short time.  I love you so very much Chris.

Chris: I love you too Lexi.

Lexi then removed her beautiful cheerleading hair ribbon and gave it to a little girl who was waiting to board with her.

Lexi: Hey sweetie, I want you to have this.

Little girl: THANK YOU!!!!!  You’re real pretty, are you a Disney Princess?

Lexi: Well ummmmm……..

Chris: She sure is, and her name is Lexi. ☺

Little girl: Are you a cheerleader?

Lexi: Yes I am sweetie. *Giggles*

Little girl: When I grow up, I want to be a cheerleader and a princess just like you.  

Lexi: *Giggles* I know you will be a wonderful princess and a great cheerleader.  And my wish for you is to follow your dreams and find true happiness the way I have.

Lexi then gives the little girl a kiss on the forehead and Chris hands her a Happily Ever after button.

Little: Girl, Thank you!!!!  You’re so handsome!!!! Will you marry me??!!!!

Lexi: Hold on there, you still have plenty of time!!!  *Giggles*  And this is my big brother your talking to.

Chris: I can be your friend if you’d like and if ever you want or need anything, don’t hesitate to as for Chris, so I can enhance your magical experience.

Little Girl: I Will!!!! Thank you Chris!!!

Chris: Anytime princess. ☺

Chrissy and Lilly then walked up to Chris.

Chrissy & Lilly: You really are amazing with kids.

Chris: Interacting with kids is part of the magic of working here.  And don’t worry girls, I didn’t forget about you

Chrissy: We know you wouldn’t baby.

Chris then gently French kisses Chrissy like he promised and gently kisses Lilly on the cheek and again on the forehead.

Chrissy: I love you Chris!!!

Chris: I love you too Chrissy!!!

Lilly: There are some girls that want to talk to you.

Katelynn: Before you say anything, let me say this……..

Katelynn then took a gulp and too a breath before apologizing to Chris.

Katelynn: I’M SORRY CHRISSY!!!!!  I am sooooo very sorry that I upped and left you like that without any explanation.  My brother wound up in jail, my dad became violent and abusive with me and my mom, it was too much for me to bare, and I didn’t look to turn to you like I should have.  I then find out that you lost your sister Alexis, and your parents as well, and now I just feel awful for abandoning you like that.

Chris: Katie Belle, don’t worry about it.  I may have moved on, but it doesn’t mean we can’t be friends.  You’re a sweet and wonderful girl, and I love you very much.  I would hate for you to look down on yourself.  If anyone’s really been through hell, it’s Lexi because she almost lost me twice, and it’s hurt her more than we could possibly imagine.  

Katelynn: You’re right Chris, and thank you so very much for understanding.  

Chris: We’ll always be friends.

Katelynn: Thank you.  Speaking of Katie Belle, how is she?

Chris: She’s doing very well.  She’s on display as a star exhibit with her sister in the Southern California State Railroad Museum in Pasadena, but she gets steamed up and runs on selected weekends.  Our next event is the Mason Machine Works Festival where the Torch Lake locomotive from Greenfield Village and William Mason from the Baltimore & Ohio Museum come to visit and we’ll have all 4 Mason engines fired up and running.

Katelynn: That is so awesome Chris!!!!

Chris: It is, and it couldn’t come soon enough, and to top it off, both Katie Belle and her sister have been asked to participate in next year’s Fullerton Railroad Days along side the Disneyland Railroad’s beautifully refurbished C.K. Holliday and Ward Kimball.

Katelynn: OH MY GOD!!!

Chris: I know, but if we waist anymore time, we won’t get in the parks, so go on ahead and climb aboard the tram.

Lexi: I GET THE FRONT ROW!!!!

Chrissy: ME TOO!!!!!!!

Nina & Wendy: WE’LL SIT IN THE BACK BY AARON!!!!

All of the girls then scramble onboard the Tram as Chris climbs back in the Tractor Cab, and Aaron prepares the tram for departure.

Aaron: And there will be no further boarding at this time, and if you have not yet crossed that yellow safety line; please do not do so, the next tram is right behind this one.

Spiel: For your safety, remain seated with the doors closed; keeping all hands, arms, feet, and legs inside while the tram is moving.  And please supervise your children.

Aaron: Alright girls, our tram is now ready to go, and DRIVER YOU ARE CLEAR!!!!

Chris: HANG ON TIGHT GIRLS!!!!

Chris then releases the cab and carriage brakes, gives 2 blasts on the horn, depresses the clutch and puts the tram in first gear, eases his foot on the throttle, and Tram 5 takes off.

Manager Andrew: HAVE A MAGICAL DAY EVERYONE!!!!

The Tram then makes its way under Disneyland Drive onto the Straight stretch of road.

Aaron: Okay, DRIVER YOU ARE CLEAR!!!!!

Chris: GOT IT!!!!

Lexi & Chrissy: GO CHRIS!!!!!

Chris then gave 2 blasts on the horn, shifted the tram from 2nd to 3rd, and to 4th gear, and got the tram going up to its restricted speed of 15 miles per hour.
And with that the magic began for everyone.  
The Tram made its way into Downtown Disney where all the girls disembarked the Tram.

Lexi: We’ll wait for you Chris.  

Chris: Okay Lil Sis.  I’ll be back real soon, I promise!!!!

Chris and Aaron then set off back to the parking structure where their relief crew took over.  

Manager Andrew: Thank you very much for your help today you 2, now go join your friends and have fun!!!!

Chris & Aaron: Thank you very much; will do!!! ☺

Chris and Aaron then go back stage, change into their normal clothes, and hop back aboard their assigned tram as Mike, Alex, and Juan joined them.

Chris: Glad you guys could make it!!!

Juan: We wouldn’t want to miss out on your birthday!!!

Mike: Of course not Man!!!!

Alex: Lets all have a good time inside the parks tonight!!!

Tram RT: Alrighty, Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls, our tram is now ready to depart, and DRIVER YOU ARE CLEAR!!!!

 The driver then gives 2 blasts on the horn, releases the brakes, puts the Tractor in gear, and the tram takes off for Downtown Disney.  It isn’t long until the tram makes its way into Downtown Disney where Lexi, and the girls were waiting for them.

Chris: I hope we didn’t take too long Princess.

Lexi: Not at all Big Brother.

Chrissy: That actually went faster than we expected.

Lilly: And seeing you guys work here is just SO COOL!!!!

Lexi: And I couldn’t be any prouder to have you as my brother.

Chris: Well everyone, shall we go into the parks?

Everyone: YEAH!!!!

Chris: We’ll go to Disney California Adventure first to hit California Screamin, then we’ll go inside The Magic Kingdom, hit the train, and take it from there.  I also have VIP seats booked for Fantasmic and the new Paint The Night Electrical Parade, so lets all have fun!!!

Everyone: YEAH!!!!!

Everyone then goes inside Disney’s California Adventure and have a blast on California Screamin before hitting The Magic Kingdom, and riding the Disneyland Railroad behind the beautifully refurbished C.K. Holliday with Holiday II Red train, and who should be running her but Big Joe and Robert.

Chris: I still can’t get over how you guys instantly got the job on the railroad without having to start off elsewhere.

Big Joe: LOL!!!!  You’d be surprised how far some personal connections will get you.

Robert: And we’re the sweeper tonight, so look out and hold on tight!!!!

Chris: UH-OH!!!!  If you girls think I’m fast behind the throttle, it’s nothing compared to Big Joe. LOL!!!!

Mike: YEAH, HOLD ON TIGHT CAUSE HE’S REALLY FAST!!!!!

Big Joe: NO I AM NOT!!!!!

Just then the conductor boards his platform, and clears the train.

Conductor: ALRIGHT EVERYONE, WHAT IS THE WORD??!!!!

Everyone: ALL ABOARD!!!!

Chris & Big Joe: HIGH BALL!!!!!

The conductor then pushes the alarm bell twice, and Big Joe gives 2 blasts on the whistle, releases the brakes, eases the throttle open and C.K. Holliday gets rolling.  It isn’t long until C.K. goes highballing down the track with a smokey stack and Chris, his little sister Lexi, along with his girlfriend Chrissy, and all of their friends have the most magical night of their lives for new chapter has given everyone a whole new lease on life.
Meanwhile back in the Magical world, a special little engine named the L.A. Mandez comes to life.

Phil: Alright!!! Time to sand her out Trevor!!!!

Trevor: GOT IT!!!!!

Trevor then sands out the little engine’s boiler tubes by dumping a can of sand into the firebox, and sure enough the little engine puffs out gold smoke just like San Juan and Katie Belle.  Soon enough, the lake water and plant life light up like an electrical parade.
Soon the little train comes to a tress bridge and Trevor rings the bell as Phil gives the 4 whistle grade crossing blast on the whistle with a……..

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHOOO-OOO, WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The sounds of the beautiful single chime Lunkenheimer whistle echoed off the tress bars on the bridge and throughout the canyon sounding like the majestic roar of a dragon.
The new Crimson Dragon had finally awakened to continue the magic of The Magical Railway.

A little engine named Katie Belle changed the life of Christian Allen Mandez, along with his little sister Lexi Annabelle Mandez, and their friends, and for the better, for little did they know of the legacy they would leave behind and the impact they would have on The Magical Railway.
