Jeff and Bryce had a conversation while pulling their train to St. Louis.

Jeff: Did I ever tell you about the last time I went to St. Louis?
Bryce: I don't think I've ever been there myself. Anyways, to answer your question, no. You never told me about the last time you went to St. Louis.
Jeff: It was August, 2017. I was with two ES44's on loan from Union Pacific.
Bryce: What happened?
Jeff: We went to a place to grab a few drinks when this 4-8-2 pops up. They're both intoxicated, and try to fight each other to win her over. They even thought I was trying to hit on her.
Bryce: You still dating Lauren?
Jeff: Yes. We might see her in Lexington.

Inside the Firebird, Lee and Janet were having a conversation of their own.

Lee: If all goes well, we should reach St. Louis within 14 hours.
Janet: You think Buick Baltimore will strike again?
Lee: Yeah, but it won't be easy for him to find us. He may know where our HQ is in Norfolk, but I don't think he'll find us. Nor will he find Jeff and Bryce. Let's try not to worry about him, and keep going westbound.

Norfolk, Virginia.

Jeff: *Returns with Bryce* Another good run from New Jersey.
Bryce: Our railroad is getting bigger every time we get back.
Jeff: I noticed that as well. It's good that we're also getting new engines joining us.

An RS11 was heading towards them with a passenger car. Lee was inside with Janet, and Bernard.

Lee: Good to see you two again. Bernard has another assignment for us.
Bernard: After two years of successful freight operations, we are to test out this passenger car on our line all the way to St. Louis. We are planning to start passenger services on our railroad.
Lee: Bernard and a few executives are riding in the car on one of your freight trains. Janet and I will be following you on the roads.
Jeff: With what?
N&W Employee: *Driving a Firebird towards Lee* Mr. Brent, your brand new car has arrived.
Jeff: I withdraw my question.
Lee & Janet: *Step out of the passenger car, and go into the Firebird*

Previous Update: link

Phew, Season 6 is finally complete. Even though it started last year on the 29th of May, the last episode for the season was completed on the 24th, just several days ago. So what happened? Well, I usually stick with one episode per week, or sometimes, I get even two episodes done per week. However, because of work I have not been able to post as much as I wanted. Also, since last January, college has also contributed to my lack of article posting. I've been taking an acting class, and I do plan to continue this.

Now it's time for an update on the list of characters.

The Eastern Pacific engines

Sean: Amtrak F40PH
Austin: Cylinderless 2-6-0
Jerry: Union Pacific ES44AC
Mike "Fonzi": Canadian Pacific ES44AC
Lucy: 2-6-0 steam engine

Mily: *Pulling six passenger cars*
S.B: *In her cab, looking out the window*
Mily: Thanks for coming with me today.
S.B: Thanks for inviting me over. Things must be easier for everyone here now that all the snow's melted away.
Mily: It didn't take that long for it all to melt though. That's what I find surprising. We get 13 inches of snow, and then four hours later, it gets into the 50's, and it all melts away.
S.B: I didn't even get a chance to make a snowman.
Audience: *Quietly laughing*

Not far away, an ambulance was going down a road. Four men were inside.

Man 134: $50,000. We just stole $50,000 from the bank.
Man 241: And the cops didn't even know about it. They actually thought we were medics.
Man 66: *Drives past a few houses*
Police Officer 30: *In a Ford Fusion police car, next to a house* They haven't spotted me. I'm moving in.

Narrator: Trainz was filmed in high definition before a live studio audience, but you already know this, so moving on.
Audience: *Laughing*
Sean & Ian: *Coupling up to a freight train in the yards*
Sean: I think this is the first time we've ever worked together on a freight train.
Ian: I agree.
S.B: *Walks over to the two diesels* Hi fellas. Where are you heading?
Sean: Mossberg Harbor.
Ian: Want to join us?
S.B: I'll stand on your walkway.
Sean: Won't you freeze?
S.B: I've got a coat suitable for the arctic. I don't think I'll freeze. *Climbs on Ian's ladder, and stands on his left walkway* Let's go.
Narrator: There were three boxcars in the harbor. They needed to be loaded with guitars heading for a music store. All of the boxcars belonged to the Eastern Pacific, and Ferris was ordered to steal them.
Ferris: No one's looking. Time to make my move.

Mily is the narrator

Mike: *Leaving the yards with thirty freight cars*
Rachael: *Next to Suzie. Both engines are exhausted* I'm telling you, these trains just keep coming, and coming.
Suzie: I don't know how much more of this I can take.
Edward: *Stops next to Rachael, and Suzie* Hey girls, I know you're tired, but we got another freight coming here in five minutes. Get some coal, and water, and be prepared. *Leaves*
Rachael: He doesn't look tired at all.
Suzie: How does he do it?
Rachael: Maybe that's one of the perks of being a diesel. Plus, he has eight drive wheels, whereas we only have two.
Suzie: I feel like we're reliving the start of our career here. Remember how that turned out?
Rachael: That's what got us limited to yard work in the first place. It's easier, but still too tough for us.

Thomas: *Pulling Annie, and Clarabel on his branch line*
Paxton: *Stops at a station with a short freight train*
Thomas: *Stops next to Paxton*
Paxton: Hello Thomas. What's going on today?
Thomas: Oh, I'm just running my branch line as usual. What's going on with you?
Paxton: Sir Tophamm Hat asked me to deliver toys for the children.
Thomas: That sounds like a wonderful job.
Paxton: Why thank you Thomas. Listen, I've been hearing Diesel 10 talk about you, and the rest of the steam engines. He's trying to get a group of diesels to join him, so that he can destroy you, and the other steam engines.
Thomas: Thanks for letting me know Paxton. Diesel 10 just doesn't want to quit.

Narrator: Here we go with this again, Trainz was filmed before a live studio audience.

Panzer: Yes.
Mr. Bruce: NONE!!!!!!
Panzer: You're too early for April Fools sir.
Audience: *Laughing*
Mr. Bruce: This is no joke!! I told you and Carter to scrap Jack! Now that he's on the Eastern Pacific, he can help Mr. Baldwin's engines foil our plans!! We need to make the Eastern Pacific go out of business!!
Panzer: You know sir, maybe if you actually listened to Jack instead of interrupting him, maybe this wouldn't have happened.
Mr. Bruce: Don't you start with me Panzer, just don't you start with me!

Jack is the narrator.

Narrator: Trainz was fillmed in front of a live studio audience. I guess?
Audience: *Laughing*
Jack: *Stops at the Mossberg Freight Depot*
Ferris: *Stops next to Jack* What are you picking up?
Jack: I'm taking some steel back to Zorrin. We got a few clients over there that need it.
Ferris: I gotta turn around. I only stopped here to pick up some bricks, and gardening tools. They're being shipped to Hawaii from Mossberg Harbor.
Jack: Have fun with that.
Ferris: Same to you buddy.

Margaret is the narrator

Marisa & Holly: *Pulling Jessica out of Impala Station*
Jessica: *Groaning* Thanks you two for your help.
Holly: That's what friends are for.
Marisa: What happened to you Jessica?
Jessica: I guess I bit off more than I could chew with one of my freight trains. I pulled pretty hard when going up the hill after getting out of Nova, and I guess you know the rest.
Holly: Uh, huh.
Marisa: I definitely know.

Back at Impala Station

Ms. Scarlett: *Talking on the phone* She just returned. Thanks for bringing her back in one piece. Or, almost one piece.
Audience: *Quietly laughing*
Mr. Baldwin: I did warn her to wait for another engine, but she insisted on going solo.
Ms. Scarlett: I think it's safe to say that she learned her lesson after that.
Mr. Baldwin: The freight trains should be fine for now, but I could borrow another engine for passenger trains.
Ms. Scarlett: I'll send over Margaret. Call me back whenever you can.

Thomas: Hello, I'm Thomas. I'm going to steal everyone's spotlight.

Then Thomas pushed Duck down a cliff. He went to Oliver, and pushed him into a turntable well. When he reached Donald & Douglas, he derailed them in their sheds, and put tape on their mouths so they could not call for help.

Sir Topham Hatt: He what?! I knew he'd act like this when the new special was announced. Where is he now?

Spotlight, starring everyone as theirself

Thomas: *Stops next to James*
James: Hello Thomas. Have you seen Edward, or Henry?
Thomas: Hmm...

On the mainland

Edward: *In a scrapyard with Henry* Why would Thomas do this to us?!
Henry: *Going crosseyed* Duh, I don't know. I don't know anything.

---

Thomas: Oh, that's right, Sir Topham Hatt sold them.
James: Why?
Thomas: He didn't say. Either they're being replaced, or their simply isn't enough work for them. As much as I like chatting with you James, I'm needed at Brendam Docks. Goodbye. *Puffs away*

Ian: What?
Rio: The two of them were spending some time in 30th street, until someone from Septa shot them.
Ian: Any reason why he did that?
Adam: The police think he was trying to mug them.
Ian: Boy. First those two B&O diesels try to get rid of them, and then some random engine from Septa, actually succeeds. Wonder how many others wanted to stop them.
Adam: Mr. Baldwin said that he wanted to see you at the roundhouse when you got back.

S.B: Hello Shayne.
Shayne: Hello.
S.B: What is your favorite part of The Island Of Errol?
Shayne: There's lots of cool places around here. However, I'm gonna go ahead, and say that my favorite part about this island, are the other engines that I work with. Andrew especially, he knows how to make an engine laugh.
S.B: You and the other engines seem to enjoy telling each other jokes. What's with that?
Shayne: We could all use a good laugh from time to time. It not only puts us in a good mood, but it helps us concentrate on our work.
S.B: You're usually with one or two other engines when pulling a freight train. How often do you go solo?
Shayne: Not that often. When I do, I usually only have ten freight cars. Sometimes, it's less than ten.
S.B: You worked for BNSF before joining the Eastern Pacific. When did you first come to the Island Of Errol?
Shayne: January, 2014.
S.B: Were you freezing?
Shayne: *Laughs* No.
S.B: Last question. What will you do when this interview is over?

The Island Of Sodor, 1966

Michael Brandon: Thomas And The Aston Martin DB5.
James & Henry: *Pass each other pulling freight trains*
Michael Brandon: It was a bright, and sunny day on the Island Of Sodor. Thomas was at Tidmouth Sheds, awaiting instructions for a special special to deliver to Sir Topham Hatt.
Sir Topham Hatt: Today is the day that I get an Aston Martin DB5.
Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
Sir Topham Hatt: You will deliver it from Brendam Docks to Maithwaite safely, and slowly.
Thomas: Yes sir.
Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. And he raced away as quickly as he could. When Thomas arrived at Brendam Docks, he saw the Aston Martin DB5. It was silver, and very shiny. Thomas puffed up to the flatbed where the Aston Martin DB5 was, and puffed away before the shunter could fasten the coupling.
