Brisco County Jr. is hired by the attorney of a group of robber barons to track down and apprehend the infamous John Bly and his gang, a job that was previously entrusted to his late father Brisco County Sr.
Did You Know?
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
Brisco County Jr.
Well, you had one hell of a funeral, Dad. Governors from three states and two territories showed up. I'm sorry I missed it. I'm, ah, I'm sorry I missed a lot of things. But I'm gonna finish the job you started. You can count on that. John Bly has to be caught... so I hope you're looking out for me up there. I can use all the help I can get.
