Percy and Jeff returned to the yards in time to see Hawkeye arrive in a freight train with Stylo.
Hawkeye: *Stops 下一个 to Snowflake's tower*
Stylo: Well it looks like Percy and Jeff just got back from fixing track.
Hawkeye: Let's ask them how it went.
Stylo: I'll do that, 你 go uncouple these engines from the freight cars.
Hawkeye: I did that last time. 你 do it!
Jeff: *Uncouples the engines from the freight cars with his magic*
Hawkeye & Stylo: *Looking at Jeff*
Jeff: Neither of 你 wanted to do it, so I decided to help you.
Hawkeye: Where did 你 and Percy go to today?
Percy: Archer Hill.
Stylo: You've been going there a lot lately.
Jeff: Those tracks need lots of repair, 你 know.
Percy: Especially with heavy trains travelling on them.
Pete: *Arrives* Percy, Jeff. May I talk to 你 for a minute?
Hawkeye: Meanwhile, we should 移动 these engines now that they're uncoupled from the train. *Moves forward*
Jeff: More? Do 你 know how many?
Pete: No. All I know is that you'll be working on those tracks until the end of the month.
Percy: We'll do our best though. Right Jeff?
Pete: Good spirits. Get to work.
Jeff: Yes sir.
As Percy mentioned earlier, heavy trains can put the tracks in poor condition. Some of the rails on Archer 爬坡道, 小山 were too bendy. They had to be replaced.
Jeff: *Looking at the tracks* This is bad. Percy, go tell the signal 小马 about this. He must make sure that any switch on the main line is not set to this track.
Percy: 你 could use your magic to fix this.
Jeff: Magic can fix it yes, but it can't be fixed properly. The last unicorn that tried it accidentally made a rail disappear.
Jeff: Now go tell the signal pony. I'm going to remove the bad rails while we wait for the rest of the crew to arrive.
Percy: *Goes to the signal tower*
But when Percy got there, it was empty.
Percy: This can't be! *Flies to Jeff*
Jeff: *Gets two bad rails off with his magic, and puts them in the back of the truck*
Percy: *Returns* No one is in the signal tower.
Jeff: What? That can't be good. Percy, 你 operate that tower.
Percy: But I don't know what to do.
Jeff: It's easy. Set the points away from this track so that no trains will get derailed here.
Percy: Okay, I'll try. *Flies back to the tower*
Percy set the points to the 下一个 track, on two switches. They were on different sides of the bad section. No train would go on it until it was completely fixed.
