Storyline

John Evans is on the run after killing another ex-con who told him about a family in Pennsylvania who supposedly keeps a great deal of money at home. The fugitive ends up in the company of Jess Orkin, a 14-year-old runaway. Evans manipulates Jess; the boy breaks into a farmhouse and steals food and medical supplies while Evans tries to recover from a gunshot wound. Erskine and Colby are on the trail of the runaways. They hope to get to Jess before Evans commits his next crime -- which almost certainly will result in fatalities if he succeeds. Written by Bill Koenig

Goofs

Early in this episode, a freight train is seen leaving Wilmington, Delaware, hauled by Southern Pacific diesel locomotives; the Southern Pacific didn't operate east of the Mississippi River. Later, the train is seen traveling through the mountains of Pennsylvania hauled by Denver & Rio Grande Western ("Rio Grande") diesels; the Rio Grande operated only in Colorado, Utah, and (at one time) New Mexico. While these apparent mismatches are probably due to the use of stock footage, they are not necessarily errors. By the late 1960's, American railroads were routinely leasing diesels to each other, combining their locomotive fleets into jointly used pools, and operating "run through" trains that remained intact from origin to destination over more than one railroad. Through such practices, diesel locomotives could - and still can be - found hundreds or even thousands of miles from their home rails. See more »
