At one point, they considered calling the show "The Wild West West" after West's character. The name was changed before the show aired. See more »
The train car has numerous hidden compartments which slide out of the wall or down from the ceiling. In actuality these compartments are much too large to fit inside the walls of the car and would extend out past the sides and roof. See more »
The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »
I've just read the comments posted here and agree with almost everything positive said. I don't think Ross Martin received enough praise at the time for the work he did. Nor do I think the show receive the respect it deserved.
It was riveting when it first aired, and had the feel of a really good mystery show, with many excellent twists and turns of plot.
But, I can't believe no one mentioned that this show had the greatest theme song of all time! If you can find it do hear it. It has both a "western" sound to it, as well as a really great theme and arrangement. Warning: there were two versions produced. The original is better, but both are excellent.
