Heroic characters trapped in snowed-in railroad town
I saw this 20 years ago with live organ accompaniment. This is a great silent movie, with lots of close steam railroad action. Note to railfans: this was clearly filmed on the Great Northern on their old pre-Cascade tunnel line. The plot occurs in a railroad work camp. Winter comes and the town is snowed in, likely for months. Something terrible happens and a dramatic rescue is required, hero, attractive heroine, etc. Lots of scenes of belching steam locomotives fighting the snow. The "white desert" is the snow, get it?
I don't really know what else to say. These old silents are not terribly long movies!
