Melodrama Synopsis

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.

Both Ted and Balderdash are also smitten by Modestly Faithful's beauty and compete for her hand.

- Can Tom stop Balderdash from succeeding in his evil scheme?

You can only get the answers to these questions by joining us for “Choo-Choo Chicanery!”
