A firey horse at the speed of light! A cloud of dust, and a hearty Heigh Ho Silver! The Lone Ranger rides again!
At the town of Hilltop, a train makes its stop. As the engineer steps off, he is alarmed to see the train and his crewman Jim rolling steadily faster, coasting down the grade. The grade is too steep, the train races too fast, and can’t make the turn in the track. Seeing the runaway train, Lone Ranger and Tonto rush at top speed, but all they can do is tend to the crew after the crash. The last words of a crewman indicated this was no accident.
Sam, the engineer begins to take heat for the train being out of repair, and in the unsafe condition that would cause it to run away. The victimized family wants justice done, but nobody really believes that Sam is behind the terrible event. Who would want the train to crach, or want Jim dead? That’s what Lone Ranger and Tonto need to figure out as they ride on a mission to set things right.
Though Lone Ranger’s plan is designed to help, he takes some risks that seem to let blame fall on himself. Sam has escaped, and incriminating evidence fires up the sheriff and posse to go on a manhunt. What we need now is a good trap that will draw the true bad guys into it, and Lone Ranger doesn’t disappoint. Another train, another similar situation, and as it runs away, the sabateur is caught in his own trap. This time it’s all designed to force a confession, and turn the evil doer over to the law.
