During the train ride, prformers tell the journey of a young girl traveling to Duluth to visit her grandparents on Christmas Eve. The steam train departs with everyone excited about being home for the Holidays. But a terrible storm overtakes the train and traps it in a mountainous snow drift, stranded for the night.
Everyone on board the train, while safe, fears Christmas will be lost. What the girl and the train crew do next saves Christmas for everyone.
