New Hire Run #2:
"So you got yer first run under yer belt, eh? Well, I reckon' yer ready fer your next 'un!"
Rainey Day's & Monday's:
"Rainey Day's and Monday's always get'cha down? Well, it's a lousy day to be railroadin', but you're Marked Up now and on the payroll... so the works got to be done!"
"It's a cool, crisp Autumn night. You've finished a short layover at Berryville, now you've been called to run one all the way to Seligman. Come on Greenhorn, hop to it, Big Dog's a'waitin'... and you'd better keep yer steam up this time!"
Hound Dog Pt 1:
"Whew! You've been called for the "Hound Dog"! That's the local run from Eureka Springs to Seligman and back! It's called that 'cause when yer done yer gonna' be HOUND DOG tired!"
Hound Dog Pt 2:
"Still a long way's from done, ain't cha?"
Let It Snow Pt 1:
"It doesn't snow a great deal in the Ozarks, but when it does, it can pile up in a hurry. Been known to have 12" of snow on the ground in a matter of hours. It looks like a nasty winter storm's brewin' and The Company wants to get as much freight moved before it really sets in and possibly shuts 'em down. Did you hire out to work or to just sit on yer fanny an' twiddle yer thumbs?"
Let It Snow Pt. 2:
"Well, it's still a'snowin'! Bean time at Berryville's finished up. As the Boss goes in to the depot to see what The Company has wired in for you an' the crew... you're ready to grab your oil can and go oil'n 'round your hog. That done, it will be time to climb back up in that warm cab await the news... "
Yup, I'm just a slowly a'gittin' it.

I'm into the fun part for sure now: Bringing it alive via operation as was originally envisioned. It's gratifying to see the elements coming together operationally.
However, after this fun part, comes the tedium of house cleaning the folders, final tweaks to the textures and equipment, packaging... and FINALLY... release.
