Tom is enjoined to design and build an electric railroad locomotive from scratch that will top 120mph and drag a string of loaded freight cars up a 2% mountain grade without slowing to a crawl. Richard Bartholomew is a hard-drivin' rail tycoon, beset by rivals that are trying to put his Western road under by devious and illegal means. When Tom takes the contract, he joins Mr. B on the bullseye, waiting for the next threat to emerge. High explosives, armed robbery, sabotage, and subterfuge ensue. Then, there are the hazards of trying to control a half a million pounds of runaway loco on a mountain grade.--https://www.tomswift.info/homepage/eltrain.html
