Helen Barton is ever trying to keep the peace between her strict father, Vice-President of the C&E Railroad, and her Jazzy brother Vincent. But when Vincent causes too much mischief he is given one final chance to prove himself responsible: take a job as operator at the rough and tumble Hynes station. Meanwhile Helen's childhood sweetheart Tom Lawson has been appointed railroad dispatcher. But when Vincent finds himself in trouble with the Hynes bully Tony Sharkey an important switching order that will keep a passenger train out of peril is sure to be missed! Will disaster be averted, can Helen and Tom save her brother and get the real troublemaker?
