Amanda Wickwire, daughter of the Professor, was intended to be Brisco's main love interest in the series. However, it was soon realized that Brisco had much better chemistry with Dixie Cousins, whose role in the rest of the series was then greatly expanded. The writers lost interest in Amanda, who never appeared again although her father does quite frequently. See more
When Bly's gang is plotting on how to rob the train they say that they will use gas to knock out the engineer. One member says that the train will stop because of the "dead-man's switch" that will stop the train when the engineer lets go of the throttle. Steam locomotives never had a dead-man's switch and the engineer frequently went for long periods without touching the throttle. Only diesel locomotives have this switch. If the engineer releases the switch the engine will stop. See more
