A couple of thugs check out the railroad yard. Old Boomer, the king of the bums, believes in the motto, “Live and let live.” He tells of a ghost train, and the mournful sounds of far off train whistles.
Tom is curious, but his partner thinks it’s all baloney.
The Heaven Express approaches, and Boomer learns too late of their plan to wreck the tracks. Should they heed the warnings about killing a train as they kill the old tramp?
After the wreck goes down, Joe and Tom split their ill gotten gains, but Tom begins to worry over the death and damage. Is the train that seems to pursue them real, or is it a ghost train? A ghost train can’t wreck a car, or kill them… can it? Tom is soon on the run, and having close brushes with death on the ghost train’s rails. Is there any escaping it?
