With America building two railways destined to meet in the middle, corrupt banker Asa Barrows stands to gain an advantage if the Central Pacific Railway is finished first—and sets out to sabotage the Union Pacific Railway by any means. The ensuing plot puts Barrow’s troublemaker Dick Allen (Robert Preston) and Union Pacific troubleshooter Jeff Butler (Joel McCrea) at odds, as they also vie for the affection of train engineer’s daughter Mollie Monahan (Barbara Stanwyck).
