His train derails with a tragic loss of lives, but at the scene of the crash no trace of the mysterious engine that caused the wreck can be found. Following the ensuing investigation, Smokey is dismissed, despite years of brave and loyal service. Railroad agent Bruce Harrington is convinced that there is indeed a phantom train, and launches into an investigation to exonerate Smokey of wrongdoing.<P>Bearing a strong resemblance to her sister Loretta Young, actress Sally Blane co-starred with Rudy Vallee (<I>The Vagabond Lover,</I> 1929), Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (<I>Little Accident,</I> 1930), Walter Huston (<I>The Star Witness,</I> 1931), and Buster Crabbe (<I>She Had To Choose,</I> 1934) before marrying director Norman Foster and choosing domestic life.
