Storyline

The station agent is a girl about nineteen years of age. Joe Allen and Albert Hill, two freight men, are particularly smitten with her charms. She smiles at the one and bows to the other with equal womanly grace. Joe Allen is far in the lead as regards her affections. This fact is also revealed to Albert Hill. He is in a particularly dangerous frame of mind when, while setting the brakes of the box cars while going down a steep grade, he meets Joe on top of the train. The little station agent immediately becomes the subject of a conversation which waxes into a bitter argument, hot words pass and a blow is struck. The cars go dashing on, the two men reeling and swaying in a terrific struggle. A blow with a lantern knocks the favored one, Joe, unconscious. Albert thinks he has killed him and, realizing the punishment that will follow if he is found out he determines to destroy the evidence of the crime by cutting the cars loose and letting them run wild, that they may be dashed to ...

It would be difficult to conceive a more stirring film
27 September 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A stirring railroad story with a love story to insure interest. Jealousy over a girl leads to the dastardly deed of cutting loose a number of freight cars which go rushing down a mountain with an apparently dead man on one, in imminent danger of wrecking a fast train with hundreds of people on board. The girl station agent saves them all from destruction and saves her lover, who was knocked insensible on the car by his rival. The wild ride down the mountain is realistic, and then, when the girl gets the message and she and the superintendent start out to sidetrack the flying freight and save the express from destruction there is thrill enough to satisfy almost anyone. Then comes the emotional part, when the miscreant who perpetrated the deed is arrested. The girl's hand is slipped in that of her lover as the rival is led away to prison. It would be difficult to conceive a more stirring film, or one that would appeal with such irresistible force to any audience. - The Moving Picture World, November 19, 1910
