Barton Balderdash is attempting to gain control of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad by sabotaging their passenger trains which results in drastically increasing their insurance rates. His dirty work consists of cutting the brake line on one of the passenger dining cars, which in turn causes the entire train to lose brake pressure. While riding the train to Virginia City, he meets Ted Trustworthy, a Wells Fargo Railroad detective assigned to investigate the sabotage and bring the perpetrator to justice. When Ted starts his search for the criminal, he encounters Modesty Faithful, enterprising owner of a food catering service. Modesty is eager to obtain a contract to provide meals for passengers on the Virginia & Truckee Railroad. Both Ted and Balderdash are smitten by her beauty and compete for her hand. Balderdash’s long-suffering secretary, Tizzy Ditherspoon is also aboard on the journey, but is she really who she says she is? Can Tom stop Balderdash from succeeding in his evil scheme? Will Modesty get the contract or find true love on her journey? You can only get the answers to these questions by joining us at the Virginia & Truckee Railroad Eastgate Depot for “Choo-Choo Chicanery!”
