Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A valuable railroad franchise is the grand prize in the race between Popeye's "Onion Pacific" locomotive and Bluto's "Sudden Pacific" streamliner. Cheating as usual, Bluto manages to get a head start, only to find out he has accidentally taken Olive Oyl (who'd shown up to bestow a kiss upon the winner of the race) along for the ride. Though Olive is put to work stoking the "Sudden Pacific" engine, Popeye manages to build up a full head of steam all by himself, and before long the two trains are neck and neck. Alas, Bluto still has plenty of tricks up his sleeve, forcing Popeye to fuel the "Onion Pacific" with good ol' spinach power.
