Baccano is Italian for noise, but light novelest Narita translates it as "stupid commotion" in the literary source of this series. Each of the stories in the series involves several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral farther and farther out of control. Immortal alchemists, mafia operated speakeasies, and many other elements of pulp fiction are mashed together for a world straight out of the movies.

In late 1931, the Pussyfoot is leaving Chicago despite a woman's prediction that the train is cursed and those who survive the trip are either lucky or not human. Prior to this, Isaac and Miria are unsuccessful in their search for gold in California. After receiving a letter from Ennis in New York, they wish to return and, realizing they have no money, decide to rob a train. Instead, the pair steal money from two mafia hitmen in Chicago and take the Pussyfoot to New York. Czeslaw, Ladd and Lua, Nice, Jacuzzi, and their gang, Senator Beriam's wife Natalie and daughter Mary and an orchestra that includes Chane Laforet also board the train while the woman in fatigues sneaks on. Two conductors, a young red-head and an older dark-haired one, relieve a retiring conductor from his shift. Shortly after, the retiring conductor is killed and his uniform is stolen by a red-headed Russo. In the dining car, Nice, Jacuzzi, Czeslaw, Natalie and Mary hear Isaac and Miria tell the tale of Rail Tracer, a monster that eats train passengers. Jacuzzi is scared witless and goes to ask the young conductor how to avoid being eaten. He runs into Ladd, who recognizes him. Meanwhile, the older conductor holds the red-headed conductor at gunpoint.
