Summary
Set on the Pacific Northwest railways at the height of the Depression, this is the story of how a crafty, train-hopping drifter, "A-No. 1," and his young accomplice encounter Shack, a sadistic railroad conductor who has sworn that no hobo will ride his train for free. "A" is ready to put his life at stake to become a local legend - as the first person who survived the trip on Shack's notorious train
