Margaret Heart, a marks woman hoping to become a Sheriff, boards a train on its way to Sunshine Hill. The train is also housing a war hero and his platoon that are guarding a large cache of guns and ammunition. An easy target, the train is hijacked for a train robbery to steal the weapon payload. Eager to prove herself, Margaret attempts to thwart the robbers. She seeks help from five of the passengers: mysterious marks woman Laura Fermondo, wealthy socialite Alice Dawson, country girl Caroline White, doctor Janet Miller and saloon singer Helen Willman. The group team up in an effort to stop the bandits and save the train.
