The K & A Railroad is beset by a series of robberies and hires Detective Tom Gordon to go undercover and stop the crimes.  Disguised as an outlaw, Gordon boards the train of the President of the railroad, Eugene Cullen.  However, Tom has to deal with an unexpected twist when Cullen’s beautiful daughter, Madge, instantly falls for him.  This infuriates Burton, Cullen’s secretary, who has designs on Madge, and is in cahoots with the real robbers to boot!  Ultimately Tom discovers Burton’s plot and brings the varmints to justice!
 
Notes:
 
First film appearance of a very young John Wayne, who has a part as an extra and also worked as a property assistant for the film.
 
The film was shot around Glenwood Springs, CO, and the set was frequently surrounded by curious townsfolk who watched Mix and his famous horse Tony do stunts
