I'll take a nice place in the dining car and get a nap there. When I awake and we're not out this forsaken town, I'll slap somebody :devil:

Citizens of Willoughby, I invite you to board the dining car of the luxurious Emerald Express! Welcome aboard, but please be considerate of the full paying passengers and do exactly as the staff ask you. :classic:

Dining Car of the Emerald Express - what are you trying to pull Mister?  We all know that your train is (how do you say) KAPUT!  I'm climbing on the roof of this here Crocodile and bunking out.  No one's going to pry my hands off this engine.  

Posted Image
Oh, is that my cell phone ringing... (makes an imitation ringing sound).  It is, let me anser that.  Hello - it's the Mayor of Willoughby.  Oh, sure... just a moment.  It's for you (hands plastic phone to Max).
It's the broken Emerald Express calling - Says she wants her Johnson Rod back!

The townies start climbing on top of the Crocodile's roof so that they don't miss the roller coaster ride of their life.

Posted Image
Seriously Conductor Max, while you have tried to keep us off your broken luxury train, this Crocodile Locomotive belongs to Willoughby.  It is a part of us, and you WILL NOT take her without offering each of the Townies a ride on her roof top.  You have come to our town, and a number of us have assisted you during your visit.  Now that you have found a way out, a number of them want to go with.  Why? I don't know, but that's a whole other chapter.  So, why don't you just show me my seat now, and we can continue. :wink:

I'm sure they wouldn't like to ride on the roof.  I'm not sure if they could cling on...

What do you mean?  What about the dead people.  I don't think we should bring them if you're implying that... they told me they'd prefer to stay here.  I'm a ghost whisperer.

When (if) we make it out of Willoughby, we can alert the authorities at that time.  I'm sure they won't be going anywhere.

Umm, is staying on the roof safe?

OF COURSE NOT!
If we don't fly off because of the speed, we'll be flattened at the first tunnel! This is all a scheme to get the townies dead, lead by the TOWN COUNCIL!
I am staying IN the dining car or IN the Crocodile (or in a room if there are any nice train people :classic: ) but NOT on the roof!
Though perhaps it is best I stay in the Croc and not the Dining Car...

After the townies make their way aboard the Crocodile, and all have settled in (as best as possible on the roof and twin engines of the locomotive), Max lets out a loud train whistle.

Steve Thomas crosses the red and green wires in the forward cabin causing the engine to start.  All smile as the sound of the humming engine can be heard.  

Posted Image
It's a go Max.  All forward!

Max engages the throttle and the locomotive begins moving slowly out of the train engine shed.

Posted Image
Yippie! We're leaving Willoughby once and for all!

Posted Image
Three cheers for Conductor Max and his crew - hell, even the city slickers.

Posted Image
I must say that this has been quite an adventure.  I'm glad to see us moving forward, even if it's away from Willoughby.

Posted Image
Now let's just be good to one another and keep the peace as we leave this town once and for all.
No axes, guns, knives or other sneaky maneuvers while we're on this train out of here. :wink: Got it folks?

The train speeds up as it makes it's way toward the first switch near Main Street...

I don't think you guys understand our predicament.

The Willoughby line does not connect to the Emerald Express line.  That's part of our problem.  We won't be going to LA but the next town of Auburn (I recall it being about 500 miles away).  It's still out of Willoughby though where we can contact authorities.

(standing up in the small cabin with Max)  Pete: I heard you fine, but you don't have the luxury of choosing to ride inside the small drivers cabin of the Croc.  You've got a roof seat with all the others.

The dining car of the EMERALD is NOT an option.

Now, we're approaching the first switch.  Let's see where we go...


Posted Image
Oh, let's take a look at that map again Max.  Perhaps this will help show our roof-top guests the route:

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!   WOOT!

This is so exhilarating! Finally, we're going somewhere! As long as it isn't over Cassandra crossing... :look:

Dammit, I left half my D&D stuff on the Emerald.  :cry_sad: We better be able to recover it later, or else someone will pay. :angry: At least I have my basic equipment wit me, so we can still have a basic game Herman. :wub:

Um, I'm inside the train, right? I'm a full-paying passenger you know! And I don't like heights. :blush:

What the Jethro?! :angry: Wasn't it the nationally syndicated doofus Willy Brown that suggested we go on the roof in the first place?! Twenty minutes ago you were all SO eager to get us in the dining car. CONSPIRACY? I THINK SO!
*begins rant* FIRST, we're all set to be seated in the dining car. Then, long after Willy Brown FORCED us the OPTION to go onto the roof this Jackie Chan knockoff is gluing us to the top of the train we should RIGHTFULLY be in!
IS THIS JUSTICE?! NO!!! IS THIS LIBERTY?! NO!!! IS THIS AMERICA?! I THINK IT IS!!! SHOULD WE BE SUBJECTED TO THIS UNFAIR TREATMENT?! NO!!! WILL WE FORM A UNION AND TURN CORRUPT?! OF COURSE WE WILL!!!
I think it's high time we found out who these villains are - ONCE and FOR ALL! Because right now, I don't think I'm gonna make it out of this town alive if I stay on that roof - and I think these brigands are at fault for this notion!!!

Okay then - Town Council, whoever you are; they're all yours! (just kidding).

Let's respect one another while we share this rooftop.  Suntan lotion anyone?  A hat perhaps?  Schmelt- I'd like two Fuzzy Navals please.

I hope everyone realizes that we're just riding on an engine right now?  Y'all have to figure out how to get back onto the main line where your green train is.  And from lookin' at that there map, it ain't lookin too good.
