Sgt Billy Williams is talking on the phone with his boss, Sergeant Major Crane, when a mysterious group of cyclists board the train he is on. When one of the cyclists pulls the emergency lever, the train grinds to a halt on the Ribblehead Viaduct, a 100 ft high structure with a deathly fall. The six hijackers are armed with guns and bombs and are prepared to do anything, to achieve their aims, even if it results in the death of innocent people.
