The railroad is building a new line, but the workers are unhappy. That's because one of the board members, hoping to oust the man in charge of the project (Rapley), has a saboteur on site. Rapley's daughter, Rose, sneaks out to the project to become their telegraph operator and, with the help of the supervisor, "Sunrise" Smith, eventually discovers the plot and helps catch the bad guys amid several thrilling train chases.

Just plain fun!
16 September 2002 | by (Culpeper, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This low-budget film with no big stars is a delightful thriller. Eva Novak and Cullen Landis star in a railroad picture that is pretty much non-stop action, with one great action sequence after another. Novak gets to play a woman with spunk, who matches Landis stunt for stunt, not the usual fainting silent film heroine. I viewed a newly restored print of this film at Cinecon in September 2002 with an enthusiastic audience and great live piano accompaniment. It was the surprise hit of the festival.
