An accurate recounting of the construction of the Canadian-Pacific Railroad line between Montreal and Vancouver, insofar as the details of construction are concerned. Realistic rolling stock and the details of the tunnelers' battle with the gorgeous Canadian Rockies are interrupted by a

conventional plot. Arlen and Mackay are gambler-drifters in a railroad boomtown hoping to pick up some fast winnings. Arlen falls in love with Cellier, the daughter of construction chief Emerton; this induces him to divest himself of his deck and pick up a sledge hammer. Mackay, plundered by

grasping bar girl Palmer, redeems himself by sacrificing his life in the interest of the railroad's progress.
