Leo Pickett and Will Haney, railroad workers in Little Rock, Arkansas, find out the parent company of the Southland railroad is about to close their yard and layoff the employees, switching all future shipments to the air freight business.
In a last-ditch effort to save their jobs, the two men "borrow" a locomotive and drive it from Clifford, Arkansas, to Chicago, Illinois, to make their case to Thomas G. Clinton, the railroad's Chairman of the Board.
