As the Broadway Limited entered New Jersey. There was only one zaidi station stop before reaching Penn Station. Another Penn Station, in Newark. After that station stop, Sid's paranoia kicked in.
Sid: I still don't think we can make it up the grade into the station. William: We'll be okay. I will be honest, I would prefer to use the electric engines, but the 3rd rail system is down. Sid: I hope they finish with the catenaries. I'd like to see zaidi electric engines. William: *Sees the entrance to the tunnel* Here we go. We should have enough PSI, and we will make the grade if we go up to 70 at the...
So I see a lot - and I mean a LOT of biased opinions floating around about the queer community based around stigma, bigoted cis/hetero propaganda, and just plain uncertainty.
And usually when this stuff crops up - both sides don’t discuss it. Usually it starts out with side A, the cishet folks that are extremely uninformed, getting upset over something they don’t understand and draw conclusions for themselves - and then side B, members of the queer community that see this bias, and (understandably) get enraged and turn to insults and sloppy arguments against the misinformed.
Philadelphia, the Headquarters for the Pennsylvania Railroad. Despite having a weaker engine, the Broadway Limited was still early as it approached Broad mitaani, mtaa Station at 7 AM.
William: *Stops the train at the station* Nine dakika early. No wheel slip, and no delays. Sid: I'm surprised we've managed to stay ahead of schedule. That gradient into Penn Station still worries me. William: Relax. Everything will be okay. Paul: *Sleeping with morgan in her room* Bill: *Knocks on the door* Paul: *Wakes up* Bill: We're at Philadelphia, anyone getting off for Philadelphia? Paul: Yes. *Gets out of bed* Morgan:...
The Broadway Limited was making another station stop, but there was a problem.
Sid: Let's get some coal. William: *Watches someone walk towards the cab* Monohan, what's happening? Mike: We're short on coal. Management wants wewe to put the K4 in a siding, and let 7002 pull the train the rest of the way to Penn Station. Sid: The Atlantic? Mike: We made some upgrades. We want to see how she handles 10 cars. Sid: She's gonna slip non-stop. William: I'm willing to give it a try. Go uncouple the engine. Mike: I got it. *Walks to the coupler* Sid: *Nervously shakes as he looks at two more...
morgan was kusoma a book while waiting for Paul. She heard three knocks on her door.
Morgan: Come in. Ivan: *Enters her compartment* With pleasure. Morgan: Wait a minute, you're not Paul. Ivan: I'm not, but I've seen wewe talking to him, and quite frankly, I think you're perfect for my play. Morgan: What kind of play? Ivan: It's a drama called The Scarlet Lady. I've been aliyopewa good maoni kwa many critics who got a sneak peak at my script. There's just one thing I need to test wewe with. Morgan: And that is?
In Paul's compartment, he was asleep. His nap lasted for half an saa when suddenly...

morgan was waiting in the observation car. She was enjoying the scenery rolling kwa as she looked out the window.
Paul: *Arrives* Morgan: *Looks at Paul as he comes closer* Just in time. Paul: For what? Morgan: My inayopendelewa part of the trip. I rode on this train when it made it's very first eastbound run in 1912, and this is my inayopendelewa part of the scenery. Look at the boats on the water. Paul: *Watching the boats as they kuvuka, msalaba a bridge* They do look nice. Morgan: I upendo travelling. All I have to do now is go up in an airplane. Paul: I don't have the stomach for that. I'd rather stay on the ground.
