A train to nowhere ...........
7 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This average western from the 1960's featured a good cast but unremarkable and routine writing. Dale Robertson excelled in these type of brave underdog roles, but he could not rise above this series' script limitations. Gary Collins and Ellen Burtstyn were fine, but went on to better roles in later years.

The one episode that really stands out in the series featured the great character actor Strother Martin. He always brought a dignified,wry humor to his roles and did so again in this show.

While not the best of western TV shows, it had potential that was never quite realized........ the train never really "left the station".
