The previous Friday (calendar for 2211: viewtopic.php?f=66&t=391), meeting with the officials to get their permits straightened out. The train leaves from a rail yard in the west of town, by a lagoon that has a channel dredged for marine traffic such as passenger and cargo watercraft. The main road west is pock marked by shell impacts, houses with their faux white wash stucco ceramo-plastcrete damaged and repaired, as fighting came up this way. The rail-yard's fence has the same damage with holes having new wire stitched in. Place's show burned rolling stock, twisted rails, and scorch marks on the vitrified soil in use as the yard's lot. The sun is up, and it's time to go. The Monorail is setup with a flatcar in front of the locomotive, sandbags and an MG emplacement, then the locomotive, fuel car, storage car, three passenger cars, two box cars, two more flatbeds with two of the trucks, another flatbed with the group's armored car (similar chassis to the regular ATV, lower bodied, six wheeled, and an MG turret), another boxcar, and a final flatbed with sandbags and an MG position like the first.

[ooc] I assume it's 0700, everyone here bright eyed and bushy tailed, there have been two more calendar days after getting the permits (Saturday and Sunday) to purchase gear, party, carouse, pass out, and still not be late for the train. Everyone ready to ride the rails?

Zhenya will spend the days in whatever activities the crew indulge, but ending each night alone in the suite, playing opera loud and drinking heavily.

I'm assuming we are traveling as "tourists", with serious weapons and armour in our luggage?

Before we leave we ought to assemble an "expedition kit", with camping gear and survival rations. Just in case.

Rojo would have talked with Zhenya about her expectations for his role on this trip/mission, and any special equipment that might be required, in order to be as-ready-to-contribute-as-possible. At some point, he also would have (maybe?) asked to relocate his personal belongings from a storage locker at the port to the crew lockers aboard the team's ship. Somewhere in here, he would have given Zhenya a fully itemized list of everything he intends to bring on board... which, is essentially all he has left in the universe.

Well, first we will have to get a fresh set of permits, but after that, well... Escort trucks through Guerrilla-infested territory. Sensors, vision-enhancement, combat equipment.

Of course, The Leshy is only the Ship's Boat, but Rojo is welcome to use the locker. We're taking a fair amount of things out, there'll be plenty of room.

For the trip to Dharmasiriwardene Zhenya is dressed as a tourist, with most of the equipment locked in hard-case luggage.

So Elton is there in his new dazzling finery, bought in Maly, maybe making his way to the club car for a game of chance. Calson, wandering back from stowing the luggage in the storage car lockers. Leon and Theta should be wandering around as well; Scree, Chir, and Vern are staying close, with Chir and Vern being especially keen for the adventure. Rojo is there when Gaston meets them earlier in the yard, and then later in the club before departure, he has a rather dapper man with him, that he introduces as Nerissi, his bodyguard and assistant, and a large merc named Holden in cloth and armed with an auto-pistol, as the leader of their mercenary squad. Holden looks entirely shaved, and has a large round head, like he is almost a giant baby; except with a sort of sinister mirth. Gaston seems easy going, happy that the permits have come through, and assured that the trip to Dharmasiriwardene will be no big deal. The conductor speaks up on the intercom, stating that the journey to Dharmasiriwardene will take a slightly ominous 8.6667 hours, with stops at Nagarkari, Big Bend, and Elletsville in between.

The monorail doesn't chug, more of a electric hum as it levitates magnetically above it's track, the cars still bang against each other as it makes it's way out of Maly, speeding up to 50 kph, and hitting up towards 200 kph on it's way to Nagarkari. The Terran plantings of vegetation give way to native flora, that's green is off, scrubby, with the occasionally twisted or gnarled tree, signs of that the chemical cycles, such as nitrogen, are beginning to run down on this ancient world, Delta Trianguli's long 8.5 to 9 Gya (Giga or Billion years) compared to Sol's 4.6 Gya.

Leon would have packed a spare set of clothes he uses for combat / his laser rifle along with spare charges, medical kit and his combat armour all this would be in stowed luggage along with Calson's gear. The snub pistol is kept on his person. Leon would have purchased (if there was time and available) some insect repellent and a sharp machete (also stowed) .

Leon will then make his way to the dining car and enjoy a light beer with a cigar taking in the scenery. It will be good to get into some action again. Although he enjoyed the break too much R&R can make a person soft.

Elton will wear his new tourist clothes and bring his cloth and reflec, carbine, and 2x nano medkit injectors in his luggage.
He keeps his telescopic cudgel on him (it looks pretty innocent in its belt holder)

After Leon, and Elton find their places, the monorail buzzes along, winding around the Goonetilleke Highlands, going uphill, across bridges, until it soon hits Nagarkari, a town of a few thousand on the Cherson River, sitting above a cataract from the swift flow. A funicular runs down to the lagoon at the base of the falls, where there are small boats that can use the lower navigable portion of the river. The stop is long enough for goods and passengers to be unloaded and loaded, before the whine of electrics and a lurch propel the monorail forward again to where to countryside wildens, people riding rock hoppers in the distance, the alien scrub forest thickening down slope, thinning up, and the train skirting the in between.
