1930, 73 minutes, Digital, G
Cast: Louis Wolheim, Robert Armstrong, Jean Arthur

In this drama, an older railroad supervisor is engaged to a lovely young woman. Unfortunately, she falls in love with the handsome hobo her husband befriended and employed as an engineer. A rivalry ensues, but when a life is endangered the two team up and save the day.
The film may be most interesting for its detailed look into the railroads of the past. Danger Lights features rare footage of a tug of war between two steam locomotives, actual documentary footage of the activities in the Miles City yard, and what is believed to be the only motion picture footage of a dynamometer car from the steam railroad era in the USA.
