Story Summary

A nice fictionalized account based on a true event which took place in 1881. A young Kate Shelley witnessed the collapse of a train bridge during a raging storm and had to walk a mile down the tracks and over another trestle bridge to warn the station master to stop the next train which was already barreling towards disaster.
