A sensational triple bill of railroad heroines featuring screen legend Gloria Swanson, queen of the serials Ruth Roland, and the Biograph Blonde Blanche Sweet.

We fire up our film engines with a snappy morality tale about Kitty (Swanson), the lonely wife of a station master who decides to run away to the big city, redeeming herself by selflessly averting a train wreck. Then it's full steam ahead for The Timber Queen, ep. 12: The Abyss in which Ruth Reading (Roland) finds herself atop a runaway box car. Finally, we pull in at the remote Lonedale railroad telegraph office for D.W. Griffiths' celebrated adventure about a self-willed, quick-witted girl (Sweet), who thwarts two ruffians intent on train robbery.
