Love Rides the Rails; or Will the Mail Train Run Tonight?
Simon Darkway seeks to control for his own vile purposes the Walker Valley, Pine Bush & Pacific R.R. Opposing him are the gallant Truman Pendennis, the beauteous Prudence Hopewell, the Widow Hopewell, and staunch Harold Standfaster. Assisting him are Dirk Sneath, a viper of a man, and Carlotta Cortez, the sultry siren with a heart of gold. Swiftly and hilariously, the plot unfolds, leading to a tremendous climax when the hero is bound by the villains to the tracks in the path of an on-rushing train; but the heroine arrives in the nick of time. She stops the train and virtue stands triumphant while the evil-doers get their just deserts. The final scene closes in a blaze of glory as Prudence, flagging the onrushing train with her hastily discarded red skirt, bravely shouts, "Shall prudish modesty send those men to their death? No, no, a thousand times No."
