This 13-chapter western cliffhanger from Universal borrowed footage from earlier Johnny Mack Brown and Buck Jones serials but also relied on the talents of matinee idol Dick Foran, 'The Singing Cowboy,' a big star for Warner Bros. and their answer to Gene Autry. Fighting to advance the great Hartford Transcontinental Railroad through Hell's Gate Pass, tough railroader Jeff Ramsey (Dick Foran) is blocked by King Carter (Harry Woods), the self-styled ruler of the prairie domain beyond the pass. Spurred on by Carter, the local Indians hold up stage coaches, pirate wagon supply trains, drive surveying men to seek shelter and burn down the telegraph station, making it all the tougher to get the train through.
