Chapter 553: Don’t be so self-willed, okay
“All right, all right. Don’t use the table to vent your anger.” Robb, “I swear in the name of my father, mother and my ancestors of eighteen generations that I really came to go shopping without any other intentions.”
The queen squinted and said, “You didn’t swear with the God of light, but to your parents and ancestors. It seems to be true.”
“Wow!” Robb said, “you know me so well.”
The Queen’s heart thumped with nervousness and excitement, and many indescribable emotions.
She was a woman who had never made friends before. Even those netizens who had been bombarded by the information age for one hundred million times in the future would be very nervous when they saw the opposite sex for the first time.
Her voice was a little stiff. “Since you are shopping, I won’t arrange an army to deal with you. It’s up to you. Just go quietly. Remember to hide your identity. Don’t tell anyone on Bright Road that you are Godfather from Westwind town.”
Robb seemed to understand something and said, “it seems that someone wants to deal with me on Bright Road.”
The queen said calmly, “I didn’t say that. It’s just your groundless speculation. I won’t be responsible for it.”
Robb smiled and said, “I see. I will keep a low profile in case I cause you trouble.”
“That’s it. I have to deal with government affairs. I’m too busy to talk to you right now.”
The queen hung up the phone. After a few seconds, she said, “help!”
Number 1 pushed the door open and came in.
The queen said in a low voice, “arrange a large number of spies to monitor the train station when the train arrives tomorrow morning. That damned man is coming.”
Number 1 whispered, “do you want us to focus on monitoring him?”
“No!” the queen said in a low voice, “focus on monitoring the people of the Church of Darkness. Don’t let them know that that man has come to Bright Road.”
Number 1 seemed to understand something and nodded, “yes, ma’am.”
“Besides,” the queen hesitated for a moment and said in a low voice, “prepare me a set of low-key but beautiful clothes.”
Number 1 was speechless
She had to keep a low profile and look good? My queen, don’t be so willful, okay?
The steam train whistled and got farther and farther away from Westwind town.
A few hours later, the train stopped at the station of Nanli Village. It was a town located between Westwind town and Bright Road. It didn’t have a large population, only a few hundred people. It was originally a desolate rural village.
Last year, the queen gave Robb Smith a fief and asked him to make two choices. One was between Stone Canyon and Nanli Village.
Robb found that this place had become a rather prosperous town. Looking around, he found that there were many houses, and he didn’t know how many people had arrived.
As soon as the train arrived at the station, many people who had already bought tickets got on it. There was also a large group of workers loading goods into boxes behind the train. Robb could see at a glance that these goods were all made of iron ingots.
He couldn’t help but ask, “what’s going on here?”
Marian immediately explained with a smile, “in fact, there has been iron ore not far from the north of Nanli Village. In the past, no one had come to mine it. But now, there is a national lack of iron, so two nobles ventured to set up a mineral company in Nanli Village. They used the minecart system you invented to dig out a large amount of ores and used a furnace to concentrate iron. The success of our railway is also due to the large amount of iron produced here.”
“The two nobles have also recruited a lot of workers from the nearby towns and villages. Now there are more than a thousand people in the village. Most of them are no longer engaged in agriculture, but work in the mineral company.”
“It’s a special town made of iron. It reminds me of something…”
Robb remembered that when he was in his original world. When he was a child, he lived at an old street in Shuangqing City, which was next to the Jialing River. With the factory as the core, a large village was built next to it. The residents of the village are all workers from the Shuangqing factory nearby. It was a living iron and steel place. What was the name of that place? Oh, yes! Nakamura.
A large number of iron ingots were put on the train, which was obviously to be transported to Bright Road. A nobleman in the same carriage couldn’t help laughing. “After the train opened to traffic, the iron ingots produced in Westwind town and Nanli village can be transported to Bright Road at the fastest speed to the queen. In this way, we need not worry about lack of iron in the future.”
Robb laughed and said, “That’s impossible! Don’t worry about iron? After the queen gets the benefit of the railway, she will definitely try to fill the whole kingdom with railways. At that time, I’m afraid that she will be lacking in iron every time.”
Sweat broke out on the forehead of the noble. Only Robb dared to describe the Queen’s majesty like that.
After getting the goods, the train continued to set out and once again began to travel through the vast snow plains.
At this time, it was already late. It was completely dark. The two golden shining stones on the train head lit up the railway ahead. It was like a huge beast with its eyes wide open, grinding forward in the darkness.
The passengers on the train cooled down from the excitement at the beginning, and many of them began to doze off.
However, the facilities on the train were very simple, and there were only chairs. All the people had to lean on the chairs to take naps.
Robb felt tired to see Lilian leaning against the chair and dozing off. He couldn’t help but turn to Marian and Pobo and said, “your train was made according to my oil train. But my oil train is only a short distance train. It only runs between Westwind town and Stone Canyon, so there are some things that are not installed. Your train has to run very far, and it will run for more than ten hours at a time, so you need to install more more stuff.”
“Install what?” Marian asked sleepily.
Robb said, “A sleeper!”
Robb made a gesture with his hand and said, “it’s a carriage full of beds. it’s a carriage full of beds with iron frames, so that the person who take the long-distance trains can lie down and have a rest.”
Marian suddenly understood and said, “yes, you’re right. I’m so sleepy now. It would be great if I could have a bed to lie down on. The idea of this sleeper is very good. Although it occupies a large space, as long as the tickets are sold a little more expensively, it’s okay. The nobility and businessmen will definitely like it.”
Robb gave her a thumbs up and said, “you’re so smart.”
“No, no, No.” Marian said, “I didn’t think about it at all before you made this suggestion, which means that I can only be called a little clever. I’m not creative enough and can only follow others. And Godfather is truly wise to know what others don’t expect.”
