Storyline

Johnny Hudson recovers a freight wagon belonging to Faro Jenkins and Dave Porter, after outlaws led by Burke attack the pair and steal it. Real estate agent Gordon Gregg is secretly behind the plot to break up the Porter-Jenkins freight line so that they will go bankrupt and he can claim Porter's ranch. Johnny gives Faro $2000 for new equipment. Johnny and Faro also capture a pair of the outlaws and they are jailed, but escape after Gregg knifes Sheriff Bill. Freightline employee Lem, in league with Gregg's gang, steals the murder knife which Johnny had picked up for fingerprint evidence. Gregg gives Faro's freight line a special shipment and require an overnight camp and be prey for his henchmen. Johnny and Faro capture the outlaws by a trick. Burke is killed by Gregg when he demands his share of the loot, and Gregg then takes Peggy Porter as a hostage. Johnny arrives in time to overpower Gregg and the remnants of his gang. A new railroad promises to bring prosperity to the region. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
