Previously: “Cujo sent you? Why didn’t she just warp-time?”
“She can’t, she’s fighting a force affecting the space-time-continuum.”
“That figures, I guess,” Boomer sighed, “I hope it’s not Tiger-Lily.”
“I don’t know what cat, but likely it’s not your RW Tiger.”
“Cujo will prevail. In life she was fearless—in cyberspace she has no enemy strong-enough.”
“Yes. But she told me this one is formidable,” Earp replied, “But still, she’s confident she will win this—like an experienced gunfighter knows his or her skills.”
“You forget who she owned in life,” Boomer chided, “Were there any more instructions?”

Susie and Jay were to remain behind in Loco and Fort Justice to augment the marshals of both towns as deputy US Marshals (their adventure will be detailed in the next chapter). The others made their way to the station.

“I expect the only way we can learn how ‘ripe’ Larry will become,” Boomer needled, “Is to inspect the Parlor Car.”
As the train stopped, our heroes climbed aboard and they inspected the parlor car.
Inside it didn’t appear all that different—but Carl REALLY appreciated the higher ceiling—as only a six-foot, six-inch-tall person could appreciate.
It was Chris who first noticed another change—at both ends of the car there now was a door—a door which had not been in the old car.
She opened the door at the front…
“Hey look everyone!” She exclaimed, “There is an elevator behind this door!”
